Metzeler is a German motorcycle tire company founded in 1863. Originally producing a variety of rubber and plastic products,Metzelerexpanded into aviation, automotive and motorcycle tires. Metzeler has manufactured motorcycle tires since 1892 and their history goes hand in hand with the history of the motorcycle. Focusing on quality and performance, Metzeler’s mission is to continuously develop products on the cutting edge of technology to meet the needs and expectations of motorcyclists. At Metzeler, most of the people are passionate motorcycle riders themselves. This means that they know the needs, expectations and the requests of the riders.
The Metzeler brand stands for premium quality in all market segments, from high-quality mattresses to our fire-hard seating systems for aviation, from railway traffic to special foams in the automotive area. The company logo, the elephant, was derived from this concept: in 1906, Metzeler brought an elephant to the International Automotive Exhibition in Berlin, which tried in vain to destroy a tire by stamping on it. Even today, the elephant stands for products of the highest quality. Today, Metzeler is one of the largest global manufacturers of polyurethane foams.
One of the Metzeler revolutionary products is the SPORTEC™ Street.The SPORTEC™ identifies the range of products dedicated to sporty on-road tires; Street indicates the technological evolution of the sporty heritage of METZELER X-Ply on-road portfolio, specifically dedicated to small to mid-displacement sport motorcycles up to 400cc intended for highway use, touring and commuting. Products within the SPORTEC™ family combines the latest technologies, materials, processes and know-how achieved by METZELER tires over the past few years for sport performance. The compounds of Metzeler SPORTEC™ Street have been developed to deliver excellent grip in both dry and wet conditions and in hot or cold temperatures producing reliability which facilitates handling and tire durability. Both the front and rear tires have more than 50% silica composition improving the performance and chemical grip in wet conditions. The design of SPORTEC™ Street tread pattern goes beyond its traditional role of providing drainage or being an aesthetic element. In dry conditions, it works as a pin, which increases the flexibility of the tread, extending the footprint which improves tire stability, especially at high speed, and confidence in leaning;In wet conditions, it’s exactly located in the middle lean area to ensure a wide groove for water drainage covering approximately 70% of lean angles which a normal rider is able to reach in wet conditions.
