Heidenau K76 Front Tire

The Heidenau K76 is an Adventure / Dual Sport tire for both on-and light off-road use. The wide tread block arrangement and balanced rubber compound provides excellent traction and foul-weather grip for the road, while allowing you to peel off tarmac and attack the fire road.

Tire Failure When I first got these tires I really loved them. It seemed there was nothing they did not do well. I had read reviews about how long they lasted, and after my first set wore out at about 7,000 miles, I was hoping for more mileage. They are certainly very stiff tires, and proved a bit difficult to mount. Then after only about 2,000 miles I ran over something and got a very clean puncture that I repaired in the rear tire. Now at about 6,000 miles, the tread still looks very good, but I now discovered what looks like a tear in the tire between the tread blocks. There is no sign of damage from some road surface issue or object, just about a 1/2" tear all the way through the tire. I think this will be my last set of Heidenau. I know people swear by them, but now I don't trust them. Keep in mind, this is just my experience. October 19, 2014
Good all around ADV tire I put a set of these tires on my Super Tenere for a trip from East Tennessee out west. I covered approx 5k miles of mostly paved roads but with some dry desert terrain and sand though it. The tires preformed will on the trip and lasted for another 1k miles of back home mountain twisty road riding (total of 6k miles). Form me, that is a respectable amount of miles to get out of a set of tires. YMMV IMO these are very good all around ties for an ADV bike. The stick well enough on pavement for sporting use, although not as well as a Tourance or Anakee 3. They also do well off hard surface. Also the price is reasonable. Being bias ply the stiff sidewall makes mounting and dismounting a little harder then a radial tire. I like the added grip of the Anakee 3's better but if they wear out too quickly I may go back to the K-76. September 27, 2014
Wears fast if ridden hard Should not have matched with a pilot road 3 on back of my R1100GS. hard braking and slapping the throttle open exiting turns work the side lugs too hard. Now certain lean angles produce a strong vibration (more of a rumble) as the center lugs with little wear overlap with the side lugs with lots of wear. I'm around 3000 miles deep. You don't want a wide zig zag groove contacting the ground at a medium lean angle. If you take it easy its probably great... but what isn't? August 6, 2014
Regretfully Retired After 8K Miles Sadly, after 8K miles and 5-weeks, I had to retire this great tire despite having probably 2K miles of life left. New K76 front and rear tires were mounted on my R1200GSA on 23 May. I subsequently rode them hard on an eventual 11K US tour. On 27 June, 8K miles later, the K76 rear tire was severely worn in the center and logistics of the ride and lack of a K76 rear replacement led me to the sad decision to just replace them both with other tires the dealer happened to have on hand. The Hidenau K76s deported themselves admirably! They held the tarmac flawlessly (never so much as a "skip" under hard cornering) and deported themselves admirably during the occasional off-road excursion, too. My only "ding:" They ride rather harshly; you can definitely feel the tread pattern. On the positive side: They wear like iron, they hold the road, and work off-road VERY well. July 2, 2014
Great Tire so far.... I've had this tire on my Tiger Explorer for about 600 miles now and so far it has been great. It has a little more aggressive tread than the Tourance EXP it replaced but still holds the pavement well. Just yesterday I really got to put it to the test on the twisted pavement of the Georgia Mtns and some FS roads, the tire performed great! August 4, 2014
Not the most sticky tire in the class I bought these tires for a trip from East TN to Yellowstone NP with an excursion to the Utah desert prior to returning home. I had heard that the stiff sidewall made them difficult to mount. I had no trouble mounting them on my Yamaha Super Tenere but, I did notice that the sidewalls are unusually stiff. These are also noticeably heavier then any MC tire that I have seen. The rear took about 3 ounces of weight to balance. I headed for the Dragon to scrub them in. I found it easier to get the traction control light to activate then when running the stock Bridgestones or Anakee III's. They are obviously not the stickiest tire in this class of 90/10 dual sport tires. They do hold well all the way over to the edge as long as you are not cranking on the gas too hard. I'm getting between 4-5k miles out of the Bridgestones or Anakee's and, I purchased these in hopes of getting higher mileage and also because they seem to be a tougher tire that will tolerate rocks that I may encounter in the UT desert. We shall see May 12, 2014
awesome grip on an off road Tried this tire for the first time and was heavily impressed. Not a pure dirt tie but does great for the little jobs an awesome on the street. June 12, 2014
Really not impressed Just finished my first 2600 mile week traveling Utah on my new K76. Rear tire has cracks in the body of the tire around the lugs. Almost looks as though it is starting to fail. It seems to be wearing normally but no something I will trust for more miles. May 16, 2014

Mark P: No road noise like on the K60, good traction and tread life. Apr 7, 2014
Scott C: 2nd time purchase, good tire, high mileage, doesn't make as much noise as the K60 front Apr 2, 2014
Michael D: "I have read good things about Hidenau. Am about to take a long tour and would like tires to last the entire trip. Riding a BMW R12GSA" Mar 29, 2014
Steven D: Have the K60's and the front is too knobby for my mostly street riding. Going to keep the rear K60 and try this up front. Nov 7, 2013
A shopper asked: I'd like to use a hiedenua K60 scout as a rear again but I find the K60 front quite noisy. so I was wondering if a K76 would be a good choice for the front ?
the current set of K60"s I have I've already put about 26.000 KM's on them I'm guessing they're good for another 3 to 5 th KM's at least.
will the K76 give me similar kind of longevity ?
I ride a DL650 usually one up with a light load. PS. why wouldn't they put a solid center rib on the K60 front the same as the rear K60 has to keep the noise factor down ?

Paul W: I got very good mileage out of the K76s on the big ole heavy 1200 GS. You should get incredible longevity on the Wee Strom. The only caveat is that you pay a penalty in handlebar buzz. The block pattern makes these tires much buzzier than the other two I've run: the Metzeler Tourances and Michelin Anakee 2/3. Considering the price, the Heidenaus are a good value. These are very durable tires with lots of stick on 80/20 on/off pavement. Nov 18, 2013

Douglas U: I am currently running the K76's on both the front and rear of my XT1200. They were a little noisy at first but quieted down after scrubbing in. After 7000 miles the front is in real good shape- No cupping like I have experienced with other tires. You may notice some "squirming" when cornering at a spirited pace on the asphalt if the grip levels are different between the K60 and K76. Nov 21, 2013

Glenn W: I have been running the K76's on my GSA for around 4000 miles now, and they are way quieter the K60's. On road performance is good IMO not really a big difference between the two. Off road the K60 is WAY better, much more sure feeling in the dirt and gravel. To answer why they don't have a center rib, it would take out a lot of the bite under braking in straight on apps.

Brandon B: I bought the k76 for my dl1000 and it has been amazing! As of now I have 13,000 miles on them and I have 2 ,000 left. It is a very quiet tire but can get a little squirrelly off of pavement. BB Ogden, Ut Nov 18, 2013
