DMR Moto RT Tire

4.63/5 (8 Reviews)
Weight : 700g MSRP : $38.49

Product Description

‘RT’ stands for ‘Road and Trail’ and that is exactly where the Moto RT works best. The RT is 100% DMR designed because we wanted to offer a tyre for 24” and 26” wheels that would out-perform all others on hardpack dirt, street and skateparks. You’ll find that the Moto RT is super fast, responsive and lightweight and it’s large volume casing resists blowouts if you hangup. The 3.5mm deep tread blocks are dense enough for street and park but are spaced enough to bite on hardpack dirt.

    Strengths:    Overall grip - my Marin Palisades Trail started off with Continental Mountain King 26x2.2 which may or may not be any good - I'm a city/park rider so they offered almost no grip whatsoever, I then changed over to MAXXIS Larsen TT 23x1.9 as it was all the LBS had at the time, the MAXXIS were dreadful - with a tiny amount of lean angle they would slide out from under me ON TARMAC!

    I then went on the hunt for some decent city/park tyres with some width, this is when a Google images search came up with DMR RT tyres, I first got the 26x2.2 wired set and the following year I got some of the same but with kevlar bead this time - just to save the hundred or so grams, and that leads me onto their weaknesses...

    Weaknesses:    Weight. The Beaded version weighs 880g, the kevlar ones weigh 820g.

    These tyres aren't for weight weenies - since I fitted them to my bike the whole package seems pretty heavy.

    Bottom Line:   


    Well-priced tyres.
    Amazing grip on the roads and parks.
    They look the nuts!
    The first set I used have almost all the tread/grip they started with, the only reason I changed was for the kevlar beading.

    Strengths:    strengths are as follows. nice profile so very low rolling resistance plenty of tread depth to wear out not very heavy grip is very good on an array of terrain. strength is another issue with tyres but with these there is no issue strong tread aswell as the walls. pump them up to 60 psi for some fast grippy dirt jumping take them down to 40 psi and rail a bit of dual/4x/park or maybe take them down to 30 psi and rail some dh trails in the dry not wet. all out warrior tyres.

    Weaknesses:    the only weakness i can really see on theses tyres is when running the tyre at slightly lower pressures you can hear only when cornering a slight squelch from the bead flexing in the rim not to a point where as it is unsafe . also i like to see some graphics on my treads a blank tyre is just grim we need sum colour on our rim.

    Bottom Line:   
    the bottom line is if you want all round grip get some and see for yourself you wont be dissapointed.

    Date Reviewed: February 18, 2010

    Strengths:    Cheap, large volume, light & very fast rolling for size, quiet, comfortable, grippy. Great/good on dry/wet roads (worn to outside tread block), hardpack, loose over hardpack, not bad on gravel with very predicatable drift.

    Weaknesses:    For what they are designed for - none

    Bottom Line:   
    Does exactly what it says on the box. Much better than Twinrails. IMHO one of the best commuting tyres aswell. (needed slightly more offroad grip so went straight out & bought Moto Diggers.

    Strengths:    Fast rolling, light..

    Weaknesses:    Not much accelerating or braking grip, confidence wavering corner performance. Fine for steep berms, but I dont really trust these tires at trail corners, I've washed out more than once...

    Bottom Line:   
    Not bad, but I like knobblies for everything.

    Date Reviewed: August 10, 2009

    Strengths:    Very fast tire, decent protection, these tires have the profile of real motorcycle tires, so there is lean angle on the road possibly up to 45 degrees, and the knob spacing is close enough together so that any of you motorbike riders out there can have leaning fun on your mountain bike without silly side knobs or too narrow semi slicks.

    Weaknesses:    Almost like a semi-slick, so not great in wet conditions!

    Bottom Line:   
    Slower but much more fun than a slick or semi-slick on the road (dry), great on hardpack and hardpack with a little dirt dusting. OK in moist or damp dirt. Not so fun on wet roads, wet rocks and wet roots.
