Metzeler Racetec Rain NHS

£146.00

Product Description

NHS competition tyre designed for competion under rain

  • Blocked tread pattern design (160/60) developed with a completely new specification and an updated compound ideal for Supermoto use or "Lightweights" such as 400cc and "Minitwins"
  • Latest generation of Silica compounds for faster warm-up, great water absorption ensuring high grip and traction
  • New stripe tread pattern design designed for improved water drainage and contact feeling at all lean angles

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.

Engineering technology for contour design dedicated to high performance riding. The contour curvature is differentiated between crown and shoulder area, in order to provide most intuitive and effective handling and grip characteristics. The crown and shoulder areas feature a sharper radius for faster and more precise handling (crown) and safer stability limit feedback (shoulder). A wider radius characterizes the side area, ensuring a larger contact patch for cornering stability.
