You’re not a biker unless you’ve either pointed and laughed at someone’s chicken strips, or had someone point at yours.
Metzeler have introduced their Sportec M5 with this brilliant addition to the tread pattern. Now you can get your notepad out and compare markers with your friends.
Designed for sportbikes and aggressive naked machines the Sportec M5 Interact is built around a 0-degree belt with 120 individual cords that are each tuned separately across five distinct zones.
The center section is wound to optimize mileage and straight-line stability. The shoulders utilize a low-tension winding to maximize grip at mid-lean angles, while the outer edges feature a high-tension winding for maximum support at full-lean loads, minimizing carcass flex and providing a broader and more stable footprint.
