KAROO™ 4 - For an ordinary, unlimited life

KAROO™ 4 is the evolution of the heroic KAROO™ 3: a comprehensive tire for Adventure Bikes and Maxi Enduro to overcome the boundaries of adventouring.

Offroad performance
Scoop-shaped blocks maximize the rack effect on soft terrains; knob shaping promotes both massive center traction and lateral self-cleaning; the entire knob layout ensures a continuous support at any lean angle also on hard-pack terrain

Road capabilities
Stiffer carcass structures promote a superior performance at all stages; mew multi-radius profiles enable enhanced road capabilities and promote line holding and grip in lean, with dual-compound rears and lateral knobs shaped to enhance rubber response under heavy loads

Feel and feedback
Best in class (in this sub-segment according to internal wet braking test) for wet performance and rider-aid integration; tread rubber layout and tire profile enable adventurers to cope with lashing rain, cold temperatures, dodgy road surfaces, wet conditions, and emergency braking

Durable for the toughest conditions
Extreme abrasion, cutting and tearing resistance; new rubber formulations improve resistance to abrasion, cutting and tearing with highly aggressive tread-wear conditions; new profiles promote rubber thermal stability by optimising footprint
