Spotlight on: Green lane tyres

From where you can get the best use out of your green lane tyres, to your necessary kit and what the best tyres are around, it’s safe to say with our head office being in the middle of Salisbury plain, we know a thing or two about green laning. When choosing your green lane tyres, you will want them to be hard-wearing, road legal and affordable. So if you’re new to green laning, where do you start?

What is green laning?

If you are not ready to take on Enduro competitions, but still want to get off road, then green laning is likely to be the best option for you. It allows you to combine adventure, technical ability and access to some incredible trails around the UK and worldwide.

Where are suitable trails near me?

There are many legal green lane trails all around the UK, with the majority being in England and Wales. When choosing your trail, it’s worth checking out the local laws to ensure green laning is allowed in your area.

We would recommend taking a look at and joining the TRF, here you can find details on where you can ride, join forums and pick up some more information on the code of conduct you should be following when green laning.

What bike should I use?

To get the most out of your green laning, we would recommend purchasing a smaller capacity trail bike, this will allow you to use it on the various terrains that you will come across, and still tackle some of the trickier courses you may experience.

Which green lane tyres should I purchase?

As the UK’s number 1 off road Michelin supplier, we would always recommend Michelin for your green lane tyres (and all other motocross tyres for that matter). Although we may be biased, from extensive trialling and years of riding, we’ve always found that Michelin green lane tyres always come out on top in terms of their performance and longevity.

If you speak to some green laners, you may hear about a tyre called the Michelin AC10, this range was discontinued many years ago back in 2019, so the best Michelin AC10 replacement we’d recommend would be either the Michelin Tracker range or the Michelin Anakee Wild range.
