Metzeler Tourance NEXT Tyres
Metzeler Motorcycle Tyres have launched their third generation of street enduro tyres. They are aptly named the Tourance Next. Designed specifically for the latest generation big street enduro and adventure touring bikes, the Metzeler Tourance Next rubber boasts, as you would expect, new compounds and revised tread grooves. To achieve the best wet performance in the Enduro Street segment, like wet cornering grip and panic braking, Metzeler motorcycle tyres designed a blend of high dispersion silica, high-performance synthetic polymers mixed with proper resins and plastifying agents. The rear tyre sizes of TOURANCE™ NEXT adopt a dual compound solution, where the central stripe is approximately 40mm wide, to fully include the footprint area during straight up riding, and features a 50% content of silica and carbon black specifically developed to optimize mileage and power traction. Side compound is a 100% silica which ensures maximized chemical grip on wet surfaces and grip for cornering and traction in all the other conditions. The front tyre sizes are made of a high silica content (>50%) blended with different typologies of polymers and resins whose recipe provides remarkable handling and both braking and cornering grip. The tread pattern layout ensures that full silica compound is available as soon as the trajectory tips from straight into lean, providing great confidence of riding and safety feeling.
