Heidenau K60 Scout Front Tire

A true "50/50" dual sport tire, the K60 Scout brings a proven balance of performance on- and off-road. With an improved tread and compound, the Scout delivers better cornering stability and wet weather grip on the pavement, while delivering off-road as well.

The "chevron" style tread pattern is similar to full knobby designs which provides lots of open space between the tread blocks to route sand, mud and water from the contact patch while constantly keeping some rubber in contact with the road as the tire rotates.  This tire is a stand-out as it does not sacrifice on-road longevity and adhesion to the pavement for off-road traction.  A difficult feat for any tire to accomplish.

Very Good All Around Tire This is based on my experiences on a 2013 Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX. These are very good all around tires. They good feel and traction on dry pavement. I found them to work well on damp and wet pavement too. On dry off road, single track, they are very good too. In loose silt, and the front end tends to push. The rear tire hooks up great. In mud, well in mud use different tire. Again the back hooks up well, but the front really pushes. The front will also pack and not clear itself well either. Granted the front fender doesn't help with the mud clearing. Overall if you are riding pavement, gravel roads, and light off road trails these work well. If you are really going to go off road get a tire with a true knob. July 20, 2014
A bit of a harsh ride but a great value OK, just got back from a trip to South America with Heidi's mounted front and rear on my 1200GS. After 10,000 miles over good roads, bad roads, gravel, grass, rocks, and a log of muck, these babies are still going. Having just put another 2,000 miles on the bike getting it back from the port and riding a bit locally, you would think the rubber would be gone. However, the front tire looks like it probably has another 5,000 miles to go while the rear needs to be replaced fairly soon. All in all, I am very pleased with the Heidi's. Good: Wear, looks, and grip in various rough, off road conditions. Was so happy I had these puppies on the bike when we got to some of the "roads" in Chile and Argentina. Miles and miles of rock and gravel challenged the rider but the tires were great. Bad: If you want a smooth street ride, these tires are NOT for you. You will definitely feel the knobs on the tarmac and they will make a bit of noise as well. If you plan to stay on the road and just want something that looks more "off roadish", you should look at something else. OK: Wet road grip is satisfactory. However, I would not get too aggressive in curves on wet roads until you know their limitations. You don't get the kind of mileage I am getting out of these without the rubber being a bit hard. Overall, I think these are great tires for someone that actually takes their bike off the tarmac on a regular basis. You can find tires with more grip on wet roads and smoother rides, but I don't know if you will find tires that give you better all around performance in combined off and on road riding.

Love it Very happy with the grip on these tires on and off road. Big improvement over the tires that came with the bike. July 7, 2014
Couldn't be happier I've had K60's on my Tiger 800XC for a few months now, and they are by far the best adventure tire I've ever run. I have no trouble dragging footpegs on twisty roads with my friends on sportbikes, and can still keep up with different friends on dirtbikes in some very loose dust. They seem to be handling wear very well and I expect to get at least several thousand miles out of them. They work well on the freeway, although I've noticed they get a little squirrely if there's a crossbreeze while I'm fully loaded with side and top luggage and going above 80 or 90mph. Dropping down to 75 brings it back to perfect stability. June 9, 2014
Great tire I have these on my BMW1200GSA. They are great for the road and do very well off road. They are not knobbies on a dirt bike but they have a long wear and will get you through the woods like I just proved two days ago. Another friend with cheaper tires got stuck three times and I never did. July 14, 2014
Great tire! I bought this tire after reading many great reviews of it lasting many miles and doing a great job as a 50/50 tire. Not many miles on it yet but there will be :) Revzilla is awesome super fast shipping and GREAT price. July 7, 2014
very impressed I love the tread pattern on the 150/70 version of this tire - the tread is different on some other sizes. There's a continuous band around the center, so long pavement sections go by smoothly. But, off the pavement, these grip great and so far (1000 miles) are wearing very well. I've only done a very few number of miles in the wet, so no real comment on the performance there. July 7, 2014
Excellent upgrade for the novice off-road rider! Upgraded to the 50/50 tire to get a better feel on gravel roads and for a bit better bite on forest roads. Now, after about 300 miles of gravel, and 800 miles of highway riding, I'm sold on the tire. A little loud at freeway speeds but I wear ear plugs anyway. On gravel, they feel like they move through the material rather than bouncing off the tops like it felt on my OEM tires. A great confidence builder, as I feel I have much more control now than before. These will definitely be my tire of choice on my ride to Alaska next year, once I build up some skills for the anticipated terrain. I don't have any mileage experience to report, but expect my mileage distance to mirror that of most other F700 GS riders, so not worried a bit about longevity. Feeling confident on gravel or forest roads is more important to me than any other requirement, as I am a solo rider and have to feel comfortable that I'm not getting in over my head. The K-60's provide that comfortable edge needed to keep my adventurous spirit alive, even at a more mature age..... July 7, 2014

K O: Superb tire - last set of Heidenau's were good for more than 10,000 miles. Made trip from Texas to Alaska (and back) - still had enough margin on the tire to go for another 1,000 miles. I also run these on my 1200GSA and 650 KLR. Good tire - I have used in various terrain i.e. Trans America Trail, Continental Divide , White Rim ( out of Moab). Never had an issue regarding durability, grip, control, wet weather, sand,or rain. Dec 20, 2013
Eric N: 3rd set purchased. 25,000 miles total on first two sets. Absolutely awesome tires both on and off road. Very little to no hum, feels solid in dirt, gravel and wet or dry hardtop. These tires for my '12 BMW G650 GS Sertao are perfection. Nov 30, 2013
John B: A perfect choice for adventure bikes that have to spend a lot of time on the super slab to get to the back country. Nov 25, 2013
Adam B: "Rider reviews stating performance and longevity" Nov 16, 2013
Thierry P: Unbelievable tires. I use them on my BMW 1200 GS Adventure.
Over 8000 miles and not even 50% wear. Glued to the road in any weather, including torrential rain.
A little noisy but well worth it

K R: long lasting50/50 tyres Nov 16, 2013
Andrew W: This tire has many good reviews on the forums ( adv rider & super tenere forum as well as others). I wanted a tire that is good for both on and off road with excellent wear characteristics. So after much research, I felt these to be the best choice considering the riding that I plan on doing. Nov 12, 2013
mike c: Highly rated tire by experienced adventure riders. I want an exceptional on and off road tire. They cost a little more than others but the claim of getting up to 12K miles make them both high performance and economical. I can't wait to find out ... Nov 11, 2013

B F: These tires provided the best all-around features for my riding style. Amazing off and on- road traction! Oct 12, 2013
A I: Excellent product,great price! Oct 6, 2013
Carson S: When I purchased my 2009 BMW R1200GSA, it had the stock road tires and the dealer threw in a gently used set of Conti TKC knobbies. The stock rubber was less than I needed and the Conti knobbies were more than I needed. The Heidenau K60 Scout's are the perfect blend of off-road traction and on-road good manners for the way I ride. Oct 5, 2013
Shawn C: I bought a set of these tires for a BMW R1200GSA a few years back. I had a hard time getting the tire beads to set and ended up using some flat fix to keep them up but I found then to handle quite well riding two up on paved and gravel road adventure touring. The tires had about 6K miles and at least 50% tread left when I sold the bike. Sep 25, 2013
F R: Because they are long lasting, great tires! Sep 21, 2013
David R: Same as the rear, a bit worn. Sep 18, 2013

Nate C: These tires handle well on and offroad. They are slightly slick in the rain so if you're a knee dragger you'll want to slow down when the road is wet. Sep 2, 2013
Jeffrey M: Anthonys review!!! Sep 1, 2013
Barry H: Had a K-60 on the rear already & really like it. Put a D-606 on front same time as rear K-60. D-606 is toast & rear K-60 will probably last through 2 more D-606's so I said "Fuck it" & went with the K-60 on front this time. Aug 11, 2013
Perry O: Excellent dual sport tire. Aug 9, 2013

Sergio Enrique Z: In my opninion Heidenau K60 Scout Front Tire it works very well in your BikeTriumph Tiger 800xc with the rear tire 150/70.

Good durabilidad, Grip even in the rain and estability to. Heidenau k60 is a tire 50 % on road and 50% off road.
I made a travel fron Ensenada Mexico to Canada in 11 days ( 4,500 miles) and nothing happen I mind no problem in the tires.

So I recomend this tires in any surfaces on road and off road.

Joe R: I've got the scouts on both a BMW f800 GS and a klr 650. They do well on both bikes and are great in the dirt. For the perhaps 30% of the time the bikes are on gravel and dirt they function very well. I was also surprised at how well the tires handle the various road surfaces on which I travel. They are wearing well. Great tire. Nov 7, 2013

RevZilla: The Heidenau K60 Scout tires are bias ply, not radial. The "B" you see in the larger tire denotes a difference in the center tread pattern, not a designation of tire type. Apr 6, 2012

Michael M: Yes they are tough to install but since then I have discovered a majic solution to aid the process. It is called Windex. It makes everything slippery and I believe it would reduce the time by 50% installing the tires. The front tire was the easist the rear tire was more difficult. I love tires I put them on my KLR 650.
