The specific compound of SPORTEC™ KLASSIK with a balanced mix of carbon black and silica grants a high level of grip in both dry and wet surfaces, reducing the quantities of grooves necessary to ensure effective water dispersal and effectively raising the mileage capabilities.
Groove geometry and placement has been studied for top efficiency in dispersing water both when riding straight and when turning.
The arrangement in parallel lines, form center to the side, push the water away from contact patch, while increasing the traction when accelerating out from corners.
Thanks to this, SPORTEC™ KLASSIK tread design features considerably lower number of grooves, carefully placed to maximize tread pattern sturdiness and to grant a higher land/sea ratio.
The high land-to-sea ratio means more rubber on the ground, offering more grip and higher mileage, profile consistency, better handling and confident predictability when turning.
The tread design echoes the glorious times of ME1 CompK, widely appreciated for its compactness and sturdiness that contributes both to high mileage and how the tire behaves in the various stages of its lifecycle.
The lean and linear design promotes uniform wear, the contact patch maintains its optimal shape and grooves efficiency even after many miles.
This also prevents the insurgence of vibrations, oscillations and noise, and preserves the tire dampening capacity.
