Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is the Tracker range replacing the AC10 range?
A: To be honest the AC10 was getting a bit long in the tooth, the Tracker range uses much more up-to-date technologies and shares a lot of similarities to the benchmark Michelin Medium Enduro tyre that was released last year.
Q: How do the sizes compare to say a traditional Enduro size?
A: Don’t forget these are MX (road legal) tyres and the width is measured at the level base of the tread blocks, while on an Enduro tyre its measured by the overall dimension at the widest point which is the top of the tread blocks. Confused? Yes so are we!
Basically, a 120 Tracker will be the equivalent of a 140 FIM Enduro tyre (so stick with an M18 /120 Mousse). So, if a 120 Tracker is as wide as a 140 Enduro, why make a 140 Tracker and who’s that for? The 140 tracker is really for a 3.5” rim so better for big trail bikes like 690-701, yes you can fit it to your 350-450 Enduro bike but it will give it a more rounded profile. Don’t forget KTM recommend 26psi on road for the 690, so make sure you’re running higher pressures if doing road work to help the life of the tyre.
Q: Are all the AC10 tyres being discontinued?
Q: Is it suitable for trail riding?
A: Yes trail riders are the main target, with the tyre being UK road legal, if local race events don’t specify FIM tyres, they will be good for this and cheaper.
Q: Can you get a 19” rear tyre for MX bikes??
A: Yes, there are three 19” sizes available and they’re ideal if you need to get an MOT on an MX bike.
Q: What is the tread pattern like?
A: The tread pattern is all new and you can see similarities’ shared with the Enduro Mediums.
Q: Can you use any brand of Bib Mousse with these tyres?
A: No, as with the Mediums these have been made to be a specific fit with Michelin Bib Mousse and perform accordingly.
