Metzeler Sportec M5 InteractThe Sportec M5 Interact has an innovative 5 zone tension technology inside and brings a custom-tailored grip level, excellent handling and confident stability at every lean angle demanded in any driving condition.This technology, along with Greek "Pi"-inspired tread grooves specifically placed for maximizing tyre flexibility and new high-silica compounds for supreme dry grip and wet confidence, elevates the Sportec M5 Interac as the ideal tyre for all sport bikes and naked bikes, from its high performance capabilities to its clean all-round look. Following the sport-touring Roadtec Z6 Interac and the racing-oriented Racetec Interact, comes the Sportec M5 Interact, the perfect all-round supersport tyre from Metzeler boasting innovative Interact Technology. This all-encompassing approach to development perfectly matches the tyre's structure, 0 deg-steel belt, tread design and compounds for a combination of high performance even in wet conditions, rideability and wear uniformity. Interact 5 Zones Tension Technology. The new Sportec M5 Interact boasts five well-defined zones over the entire contour of the tyre, achieving always the best grip lean for each angle, stability and constant feedback. With this new structure, optimisation of the total area of the tyre footprint is increased at every lean angle up to 8% , while improving also its shape and pressure distribution. This success is felt in every situation: with an increased stability in a straight line, better contact feel at the central part of the curve and safe grip at full lean.The five zones of the Sportec M5 Interact The tread pattern of the new Sportec M5 Interact is the result of an extensive series of tests to achieve high effectiveness in dry (stability) and wet (drainage) conditions, but also provides an increased life for the tyre. he shape and distribution the tread grooves contributes to the overall performance of the Sportec M5 Interact with very effective water drainage as well as a superb flexibility. This increased flexibility complements the Interact-based tyre structure in maintaining an optimized contact area to avoid slippage which positively affects wear uniformity and thus mileage. High Silica Mixture The two newly developed tread compounds of the Sportec M5, unique between front and rear, seamlessly partner with the Interact structure. Derived from a completely new mixing procedure and produced with a larger percentage of silica, they bring top-of segment adhesion on dry land as well as uncompromising confidence in wet conditions, still keeping a rapid warm-up time for a maximum supersport grip level right from the first pull of the throttle. Lean Indicator An additional motorcycle tyre first comes from the Sportec M5's new lean indicator which offers riders visual confirmation of the maximum level of the tyre's usage: riders can verify which of the 5-stage markings were contacted while riding. The five lean indicator markings are placed on the shoulder of the rear tyre where the profile meets the road surface at angles of approximately 25°, 30°, 35°, 40° and 45° (depending on vehicle weight and tyre pressure). follow in April 2010.
