    Mitas is "one of Europe’s leading producers of agricultural tyres" and they make motorcycle tyres under the Mitas name. They also make tyres for Continental. The company has factories in the Czech Republic, Serbia and one in the USA.

    The Mitas Sport Force was introduced in late 2013 and now the Sport Force+ is the second generation of motorcycle radial tyres from Mitas. Unveiled today, the new generation of radial motorcycle tyre for riders of sport, standard and touring motorcycles.

    With Sport Force+, Mitas uses a new tread tyre compound based on the latest findings of its research and development unit. Mitas Sport Force+ will be available on global markets starting in February 2015.

    All sizes of Sport Force+ boast (W) speed index, allowing for speeds of more than 270 km/h.

    "Sport Force+ is the second generation of radial motorcycle tyres made by Mitas. We have improved the tyre tread compound to get an even more competitive sport on-road tyre" said Ksenija Bitenc, managing director of Mitas Moto.

    The new Sport Force+ radial motorcycle tires will be available in the following sizes as of February 2015:

    120/70 ZR17 (58W) TL

    The new Sport Force+ tyre is the result of recent development activities, intensive testing and high-end customers built into a tyre compound. Sport Force+ boasts superior performances throughout the tyre service life achieved by using Strong Carcass Technology (SCT).

    Sport Force+ delivers outstanding grip on different road surfaces, temperatures and conditions supported by OGT 3D-Optimum Groove Technology. Sport Force+ riders will appreciate easy and progressive cornering with maximum control and high-speed stability throughout the tire service life.

    These characteristics were achieved by a combination of two different technologies, SCT and Finite Element Analyses (FEA), for definition of the tyre footprint.
