The perfect racetrack companion
Specifically designed for club-racing and track-days
RACETEC™ RR COMPK SLICK will provide its grip performances also when used at lower speed than those which would be normally needed to “keep in temperature” other slick products which makes of it the perfect choice for club racing and trackdays.
The choice of specific profiles also provides a smoother transition from the geometries of OE tyres to those of racing.
The structural design also assists set up. The rear structure is single-ply construction, which when combined with Metzeler’s patented 0° steel belt this makes the tyre similar to those fitted as OE on these motorcycles. This means pressures which are closer to those suggested by motorcycle manufacturers, again assisting with set up.
For both front and rear sizes, the change went in the direction of ensuring sharpened profiles, enhancing the agility, a wider contact patch (improving grip by adding more rubber on the ground) and a balanced behavior for the complete set.
Predictability and feedback is enhanced by the employment of a wider contact patch in conjunction of a tyre structure made by rayon carcass plies and coupled with patented 0° steel belt.
This technological solution provides a high degree of structural flexibility and neutral behavior, with the advantage of improving the contact feeling giving the rider the possibility to sharpen the trajectory and act on the throttle.
