Heidenau K76 All-Around Adventure Touring REAR Tire for Large Bikes- 150/70 B 17
Made in Germany, the Heidenau K76 is an large all around adventure riding player with excellent features. Offering high mileage and increased tread life, the K76 Heidenau is molded from advanced rubber compound which ensures even tread wear. The tubeless tire with wide contact area assures balanced driving experience by creating larger contact patch. We think of this tire as a 90/10 tire: 90% street and 10% off-road. The K76 is an excellent large adventure bike tire that will excel in the twisties and devour the occasional detour onto dirt roads.
Our customers have been reporting outstanding tread life mileage on the R1200GS/A of between 7500 and 13000 miles on the rear tire. Mileage will vary depending on many characteristics including road conditions, weather, riding style, dirt riding, luggage loads and passenger loads. We are confident that our customers will get more mileage out of these tires than any other popular large adventure dual purpose tires on the market.
"My K76 tires have 9,800 miles on them now and I feel like I can offer an opinion. I love these tires, they last pretty damn good, the rear has maybe 3K left on it, the front even more. They did better then Tourances in the dirt - I think of Tourances as 90/10's and I rate the K76's more like 80/20's. I crossed some streams and hit a lot of wet pavement on my little around the block ride, they did well in the wet, I have a hard guess on wet pavement where the tires grip ends and the anti lock/traction control begins, but from what I can tell they did damn fine, I always felt well planted. So next set of tires I put on this beast will be another pair of K76's."
