Today I was looking into deep water hydraulic cylinder seals and came across an article about a seal that lasts for 20 years underwater and at depth pressures. Made by Trelleborg Industries from Slovenia.

That was a name I recognized from my teenage motocross days. Sure enough they still make motorcycle tires under the brand name of Mitas. Mitas was a brand that I had never really considered in the jungle of bike tires. I might reconsider ... I also see a number of troopers are faithful Mitas folks.

I am on my second set of 50/50 Mitas E-07's. Brilliant offroad and very acceptable on seal, and they last very well. The E-08's are more 80/20 roadworthy like the Metzeler Tourance.
