"Feel the RRace, feel the RRoad". The Racetec RR earns its name from the Road Racing. The Racetec RR has been developed, and put to the ultimate test, with the winning teams and riders. Road Races are one of the most difficult and challenging racing activities, due to the combination of circuit length, speed, altitude, temperature variation and variety of tarmac. The Racetec RR has been engineered to cope with all these different situation in just one race, providing unmatched durability and versatility.
High flexibility polymers and a combined stiffness structure mean the Racetec RR adapts to tarmac micro texture and offers differentiated behaviour between the crown and sidewall of the tyre. These combined give for precision and stability whilst providing high levels of grip. The homogeneous rubber matrix means that the Racetec RR is a consistent performer whilst resisting well against abrasion.
The Racetec RR comes in 3 types of compounds. The main 2 used in racing are the K1 soft and K2 medium. Both compounds offer high intensity grip and handling. The K3 is designed more as a hypersport tyre, suitable for road use and for those that attend the occasional track day on their road bike. See the separate menu for the K3 products
Metzeler continues to stress the importance of the correct tyre pressure setting & tyre warmer strategy to achieve optimum performance and durability over full race distance. If you require help with this, please contact James in NL Race Support.
