Not sure if I'm just really hard on the throttle (Yeah right, LOL) and that's the problem or the Mefo is just thin between the lugs?
Yeah, not only the Mitas Dakar but much of the mitas adventure tires use Kevlar fiber molded in with the rubber. This process adds to the puncture resistance, technology brought from there extensive line of Agricultural machinery tires.
