The Mitas E-09 has a very Off-Road type tread pattern giving it excellent traction and stability in the dirt making it a go to tire for mainly off-road adventures. Even with the aggressiveness of this tire, 80% off-road, pavement traction is very good in wet or dry conditions.
The Dakar version (yellow stripe around the tire) has a stiffer carcass that's less likely to generate heat while also being more resistant to punctures. The E-09 Dakar provides a comfortable ride on-road while you get to your unpaved adventure.
