- Extended Mileage: 20% more mileage compared to SPORTEC M5 Interact.
Tread Pattern Design
The longitudinal groves are interrupted by compound bridges to increase the thrust in acceleration, enhance stability of tread compound and improve wear regularity. These bridges also keep the grove wide open when in contact with the tarmac, ensuring water evacuation. In the lateral groves, depth decreases gradually towards shoulder area to increase compactness and lateral thrust when turning at maximum lean angle on dry tarmac; their width on the other hand, increases towards shoulder area to guarantee efficient water evacuation at higher lean angle.
For the Sportec M7RR, Metzeler has develop a compound capable of generating chemical and mechanical grip. The development target was to extend the sporty behavior from the ‘perfect or ideal conditions’ of dry warm temperature and regular asphalt to those sudden and unpredictable situations that we all actually encounter when riding on normal roads: wet spots, leaves, temperature drops, debris, holes, etc. Therefore Metzeler developed a totally new family of compounds with high to full Silica (SiO2).
