There is a new and innovative knobby tire available for Adventure Riders
exclusively from RawHyde; It’s called the Sava MC60.
For several years RawHyde has been looking for an alternative premium knobby with a better wear rating than a TKC and we’ve found one with a Slovenian company named Sava. We met the folks from Sava in Germany last year at the world’s largest motorcycle show. RawHyde had gone there to see the introduction of the new BMW water boxer and during the show we were introduced to the sales manager for Sava by a RawHyde friend who knew we were looking for a way to reduce our tire budget. Coincidentally Sava had just debuted a new tire for the Adventure Bike market at the show and they were looking for an American distributor. We quickly explained our role in the North American “Adventure Market” and Sava sent us several sets of the new tire for testing. To put it simply – we were impressed with the new tire and based on our testing of the new Sava MC60, it should offer the average rider nearly a 40% longer service life (over the TKC). This is due to its unique design and slightly firmer rubber compound. The RawHyde crew has been using the Sava tires for the last 8 months and is finding that the service life ranges from 4500 to 5500 miles. Check out our informational video about our experience.
First – where are they made? Savatech, as they are known in Europe, is a Slovenian
company that manufactures a full line of tires from heavy truck tires to scooter tires.
Sava is a subsidiary of the American company Goodyear tire and they have a state of the
art facility in Kranj, Slovenia. If you’re interested in learning more simply Google the
phrase “Goodyear Dunlop Sava”
and you’ll get lots of information.
