BTOSports Holiday Gift Guide
Day 7 | Dunlop Geomax MX32 Tires
Welcome to the TransWorld Motocross Holiday Gift Guide, presented by our friends at BTOSports.com. Between now and Christmas Eve, we’ll be offering gift suggestions for the motocrossers on your shopping list. Today, Jessica recommends the new Dunlop Geomax MX32 tires. Designated as a soft- to intermediate-terrain tire, we’ve found that it works amazingly well in all conditions. This is hands down, our favorite tire at TWMX. Take it away, Jess!
GEOMAX MX32 KEY FEATURES
Derived from top-level AMA Supercross and Motocross racing
New Dunlop-patented block-within-a-block knobs offer more progressive cornering action

Superior bump absorption through new damping control sidewall rubber compound and recess carcass design
Directional front tire design provides enhanced grip and steering feel
Superior grip in a wider variety of terrain
REAR GEOMAX MX32 TECHNOLOGY
Progressive Cornering Block Technology (PCBT): A Dunlop-patented block-within-a-block design that offers more progressive cornering action and aids in slide control.
Enhanced Carcass Tension Control System (CTCS): Tuned carcass flexibility from recesses placed strategically along the tire carcass to help smooth ride characteristics and allow the bike to follow a line more accurately.
Controlled-rebound Rubber Element in the Sidewall: This construction helps to damp out bounce, acting as a suspension component within the tire, so the tire can better follow the track surface.
Multiple Block Distribution: By varying the pitches and angles of the tire blocks, fewer blocks are needed in the center area, and this enhances contact feel.
Elimination of Tie-bar Design: Because the MX32 is intended for use in soft-to-intermediate terrain, the tie bars have been eliminated to reduce the resistance toward bending within blocks. This enhances contact feel and performance in sandy and muddy conditions.
FRONT GEOMAX MX32 TECHNOLOGY
New Directional Tread Pattern: Offers great traction and steering feel for a wide range of riders who have differing riding styles.
Enhanced Carcass Tension Control System (CTCS): Tuned carcass flexibility offers enhanced feel and steering accuracy.
Staggered Middle Blocks: Alternating mid-shoulder knobs in the MX32 have been angled differently and are sized differently to add side grip and promote light, responsive steering while being less prone to grabbing in ruts.
Elimination of tie-bar design: The tie bars have been eliminated to reduce the resistance toward bending within blocks. This enhances steering feel and promotes stability in muddy conditions.
Chiseled Shoulder Block: Derived from the MX31, this chiseled block shape penetrates the surface to enhance side grip.
Knob Placement: Newly improved knob placement and angling reduces knob stress.
