Gummy Dirt Bike Tire Buyers Guide | BFD Moto

For the type of off-road riding that we find here in Alberta, the right tire choice can truly make or break your experience. We have seen an explosion in gummy tire popularity as riders of all styles want to increase traction on terrain that was previously un-rideable. These soft and sticky tires have taken the top step in the off-road racing world from the former trials tire style that many racers were using years ago. The trial tire knob structure would get clogged with mud and could not handle acceleration or braking like a stock tire but the super-soft and flexible knobs that the new gummy tires offer are a huge game changer. The gummy tires that we carry here at BFD Moto have varying sizes of lugs and knob spacing and provide a wider range of traction. We will be breaking down the five gummy off-road tires that we carry here and find the most success with. (Tires in no particular order)
