Technical Data

Steel Radial

Innovative belt structure, with a single ply of steel cords wrapped at 0° around a radial carcass. Patented technology by Metzeler for both front and rear high performance tyres. Steel features a higher stiffness than the traditional textile material used and also reduces tyre weight. A steel belted radial reduces the dynamic deformation of the tyre under centrifugal forces giving the tyre excellent high-speed stability. Steel is an excellent conductor, therefore providing a more uniform heat distribution which allows higher mileage and wear characteristics are more uniform.
Range: Racetec, Sportec M3, Sportec M5 Interact, Roadtec Z8 Interact, Roadtec Z6, ME 880, Tourance EXP, Tourance, MCE Karoo
 

Metzeler Advanced Winding

“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.
