Metzeler ME888 Marathon Ultra 170/80-15 77H TL Rear Motorcycle Tyre.
The Metzeler ME888 Marathon Ultra has a very difficult task to achieve. Dismantling the legendary ME880 will be impossible for some riders and yet this is the promise. Great grip In all conditions weather wet or dry but this time promising even more mileage!
In order to achieve this Metzeler engineers focused on every aspect of the tyre; compound, structure, tread and profile. Of course the goal of increasing mileage was not to affect the outstanding features which made its predecessor, the ME 880 Marathon, so famous: stability, agility, grip and excellent performance on wet roads.
The polymers chosen for the compound of the ME888 have a greater resistance to abrasion and hence able to ensure more mileage, but this was not enough because grip was not to be compromised, so the resins picked this time were to allow excellent chemical grip in all weather. Another objective that these engineers achieved was to make the abrasion resistance properties last for the entire life cycle of the tyre.
The new tread pattern was another significant cog in the development of the tyre. The design and structure allowed for more even wear of the entire tread. The tread pattern is more solid, thanks to the particular alternation of the grooves and sturdy knobs, together with the compound itself. The result is that the ME 888 Marathon Ultra delivers higher mileage compared to the ME 880 Marathon, but it also provides better water drainage.
Metzeler ME888 Marathon Ultra considers itself once again one of the best options for custom, cruiser and chopper bike riders promising more mileage and allowing the biker to enjoy exactly what Metzeler's reputation has always been known for, and that is agility, stability, safety and comfort, for the entire life cycle of the tyre.
