  • Machine-specific carcass construction for exceptional riding comfort and stability at all speeds, even under heavy load
  • Tread pattern design with offset central groove’s alignment providing very high mileage for never-ending riding fun

Innovative belt structure with a single ply of steel cords wrapped around a radial carcass at 0°. Patented high performance technology by Metzeler for both front and rear tyres.
Steel features a higher stiffness than textile and this allows the reduction of the tyre weight. Steel radial belt reduces the dynamic deformation of the tyre under centrifugal forces giving  the tyre an excellent high-speed stability. Thanks to the more uniform heat distribution, mileage is increased and wear characteristics are more uniform.

 

“Metzeler Advanced Winding” is a patented system for optimum spacing between the cords of the 0° steel belt. In certain sections of the tyre, the steel cords are wound with different spacing depending on the performance requirements on that particular area of the tyre. On both front & rear tyre the spacing is wider in the crown area for more elasticity and self-damping. For sections of the tyre used for mid lean, there is increased stiffness to support fast cornering. On the shoulder area on the rear tyre, the spacing is again wider for safe feedback and control when riding towards full lean.

This symbol identifies a tyre with radial carcass and diagonal belt using MBS technology. The radial carcass allows the construction a low section tyre for enhanced cornering stability and reduced weight, while the diagonal belt limits tyre deformation for high speed performance.

 Specific tyre contour developed for Custom-Touring bikes, characterized by a linear design. A bike specific profile especially suited to heavy models. The wide crown area ensures great comfort and stability at all speed, thus maintaining very high mileage characteristics. The round side area of the contour provides very linear and easy handling.
