As title sponsors of the Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix, the tyre brand of German origins spent much of 2013 developing an all new Supersport tyre for the road; the METZELER SPORTEC™M7 RR.
The new tyres were developed through feedback during the ‘roads’ campaign and have been created to give road riders complete confidence in all conditions, just as racers need at the Ulster GP.
Offering the highest levels of handling and safety, the SPORTEC™ M7 RR inspires confidence in the worst that roads have to offer including wet, slippery, rough and dirty tarmac.
The new tyre features an all-new profile and compounds, the use of innovative materials in the structure and a brand new tread pattern, giving 20% better mileage than its predecessor; the SPORTEC™ M5 INTERACT™
The prestigious German magazine Motorrad has recently awarded the SPORTEC™ M7 RR ‘best Supersport tyre’ after a gruelling test including the wet performance and when worn. The new SPORTEC™ M7 RR beat: Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa, Michelin Pilot Power 3, Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S20 EVO, Continental Sport Attack 2 and Dunlop SportSmart2.
