SPORTEC™ M7 RR is engineered to empower true riders with a sporty riding style, using their motorcycles in all conditions, weather and temperature.
SPORTEC™ M7 RR derives from our experience in Road Racing activities including the “Isle of Man TT” and the “Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix”, featuring completely new profiles, structure materials, compounds and tread pattern.
Sporty Handling: the combination of profiles derived from the Road Racing activities with high stiffness structures delivers an extremely agile handling for a sporty riding style on all roads.
Grip in all Conditions: 100% Silica compounds combined with a special tread pattern gives SPORTEC™ M7 RR the unique capability to keep the sporty riding stile also in cold conditions, wet roads and greasy and grimy tarmac surfaces.
Extended Mileage: 20% more mileage compared to SPORTEC™ M5 INTERACT™. A dual compound solution on rear sizes allows the use of a specific material on the central slick portion of the tread pattern to increase abrasion resistance and extend the mileage capability.
Compound: The development target was to extend the sporty behavior from the ‘perfect or ideal conditions’ of dry warm temperature and regular asphalt to those sudden and unpredictable situations that we all actually encounter when riding on normal roads: wet sports, leaves, temperature drops, debris, holes, etc.
The front tire is mono compound and features a 100% silica content.
The rear tire is Dual-Compound with a 40%-20%-40% layout. The shoulders stripe has a 100% silica content that provide chemical grip on both dry and wet surfaces, supported by a harder compound in the substrate that grants the highest levels of stability and steering precision when cornering. This same ‘base’ compound arise in the central portion of the tread covering approximately 45mm in width (with slight difference between sizes) and assuring an elevate mileage capability.
Structure:The radial carcass is made of a special version of Rayon with a high rate of linear density and stiffness. In other words, this structure is much more rigid and capable of maintaining its shape under a higher stress and load strain.
Over the radial structure lies the 0° steel belt with a 5 zones INTERACT™ technology to provide progressive behavior at any lean angle. By Combining the INTERACT™ Structure with Compound Technology, all the elements of the complex Structure-Belt-Compound blend in the perfect way offering a continuous tuning of the performance over the lean angle of the bike.
