Comes in a full range of bias ply and radial sizes, this tire features a dual-compound configuration, derived from the experience on Roadtec Z8 Interact tires and focused on increasing wet performance and mileage. New compounds feature high-dispersion silica with high-performance synthetic polymer and the newest resins and compound agents. Rear sizes adopt a dual compound solution where the center compound is always from 40 to 45mm wide (depending on the size) to fully cover the footprint area while riding straight and features a 50% content of silica, specifically developed to optimize the mileage and stability, also at high speed, fully loaded with luggage and a passenger. Shoulder compounds are 100% silica that guarantees an excellent chemical grip on wet surfaces and provides great confidence when riding. Front tire is mono-compound with a high silica content, over 50%, and implements different types of new polymers and resins that provide improved handling and grip with a fast warm up. Front Tourance™ Next implements an innovative new high stiffness structure for a more sport bike tire behavior. Features the Metzeler Interact™ technology with three zones of variable tension belt layout, and is quite similar to the original Roadtec Z8 Interact™. New tire profiles have been developed along with the structure with the aim of improving the street and touring oriented behavior, wear regularity, mileage and comfort.
