I'd heard a bit over a year ago there would be a new tire coming from Dunlop but they wouldn't tell me anything more. Now we see their new Trailmax Raid being introduced in Europe. More details here from ADVPulse. I like the look and trust it will have stiff sidewalls, high mileage and come in tubeless options as well as more sizes than their D908RR. The only thing bugging me is their designating this a 50/50 tire. It's obviously 60/40 dirt/street. Also, how do they square that with the Trailmax Mission also being 50/50? I think it's marketing once again. Just like Michellin did with the Anakee Wild, I think they're eager to place it in the largest segment to maximize sales. I will wait to see if there's more to back that claim up. They may simply claim that the tire does both pavement and dirt equally well, hence 50/50. The initial images had people commenting the tread depth didn't look that deep but the image used that I saw was the 170 width and those always look less deep whereas the 150 widths look "deeper.' No word on when these get to the US but I suspect we will see them some time this year in 2023.
