Metzeler’s most enduring motorcycle tyres for the long cruises along meandering roads up and down the country is the ME 888 MARATHON™ ULTRA. Engineered for mainly two things - long durability and excellent grip. Metzelers engineer have used all the technological advances at their disposal to achieve these two specifications, by enhancing the tyre characteristics that deliver outstanding wear resistance and traction that holds the terrain even with wet conditions. The shape of the tyre is wider and flat, in order to dissipate the stress generated by the tyres’ footprint, to reduce long-distance fatigue and wear. To increase wear regularity, the transversal grooves of the tread pattern are discontinued by ‘compound bridges’, resulting in a more solid and stiffer tread design that reduces the stress transmitted to the belts and carcass plies. ME 888 MARATHON™ ULTRA’s tread pattern has evolved from the ME 888 to ensure a high level of water evacuation whilst increase wear uniformity. Optimized silica in the compound formulation ensures chemical grip on wet surfaces.
