If E-07 is the knobby type rear tire and "Dakar" is the harder, longer lasting compound, I'm quite sure it would be well recieved.

Well, I don't think there is enough real world experience at the moment on this forum about the new E07 compound, so it's a bit difficult to answer that question.

A few questions:

Would the current compound be the "Adventure" version of the E07 and the "Dakar" similar to the old, hard wearing compound (or better)?

Is it just a compound difference or other as well?

What about that center bar? I would love to see that gone or maybe broken up to shorter segments?

---

Also, now that you asked:

I would like to see a tire from Mitas that can be coupled with the E09 Dakar rear with similar wear properties. So, something with the compound of the E09 Dakar, but with a thread profile similar to the Pirelli MT21/Scorpion Rally or Dunlop D606 would be most welcome!

At the moment seems like the E09 front fits with the E07 rear pretty well, but none of the other tires (incliding the EF series) couple nicely with the E09 rear.

Thanks!

Cheers, TT
I can't help you with the weight difference, but I have just put a set of E-09 Dakars on my Tenere. I am heading north next week to give it a flogging on the CSR and Rudall River NP, so I should be able to give you some feedback on it after that.

You right ( experiencies with the new compound)

There is no decision so far to change the compound of the E-07 Dakar ( by now like the adventure )

the one with the yellow stripe

The difference is the stiffer carcass ...

No changes in the centre bar so far.. We believe that there is an advantage in the grip on gravel.
There are currently some set who are running on bike from selected riders.

I keep your opinion in my mind ...

Any suggestions on the Stoneking suitability for sand?

I took my 690 through a sandy dry creek crossing yesterday with stonekings.

It was deep sand (as in, hip deep), totally dry, and soft enough we left deep ruts in it. I had the tyre pressure much too high for sand, and the tread is almost worn out (it was only one creek crossing, among otherwise non-sandy riding).

I didn't have any trouble with traction pushing up the other side of the crossing. Nor did i have any issues in the sandy section or fire trail after the crossing, unlike one of my riding buddies who's bike spun out, with 606's and nice low tyre pressure.

Not conclusive I know, but it's something.

Sry ... I knew I forgot some ...

C-02 is not a typical sand tyre ... ( following all with DOT !)

One specialist is the XT-754 ( formerly known as Trelleborg T-754) ( 120/90-18 63P )

C-18 Country Cross could be an alternative too (65R)

EF-07 was very successful during the ISDE even in the sand. (71R)

i have the E09 front on my dr(yellow stripe)great tyre also have an E07 140/80/17 0n the rear (has no centre bar)have just done a trip up to camerons corner via the flinders (3000kms approx) the tyres had done 2000kms before the trip,showing very little wear at this stage(5000km)very predictable in all situations i reckon,

Thanks Alex, I think I am going to do the same and fit E-09 Dakars front and rear. That said, I am looking forward to your trip report!

Cheers, TT
