METZELER ROADTEC Z8 INTERACT

,

The Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact Motorcycle Tyre is a sports touring Tyre that is excellent in wet condition on the roads. These Tyres have been designed and developed to ensure the rider feels at one with his machine.

  • Peace of mind when riding in cold / wet weather conditions
  • Greek π tread pattern – confidence and safety
  • Patented Interact multi tension technology
  • Increase stability of the footprint area
  • Reduce wear and high speed stability
  • High Silica compound construction
  • Compounds known for their longevity and mechanical resistance to abrasion

The Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact Motorcycle Tyre ensures peace of mind for the rider when in the hardest conditions such as cold / wet weather, providing ideal handling for true riding pleasure. Riding easiness, comfort, predictability, easy turn in, progressivity in lean, are provided by the interaction of sport touring profiles with the Greek π tread pattern (see below) and the patented Interact technology. Interact is the multi tension technology allowing Metzeler Tyres to offer the best performance in all conditions; the differentiated tensioning of the steel belt underneath the tread compound gives a tailored performance. The High steel belts which are winding tension in the centre to reduce compound movement and increases stability of the footprint area which reduces wear and ensures high speed stability. Low steel belts which are winding tension create more flexibility and energy absorption, the compound increases the temperature and becomes softer, offering more grip while leaning. The variable winding process of the 0° steel belt guarantees a progressive behaviour at different lean angles without discontinuity of performance.

The Roadtec Z8 Interact’s can provide the best performance until the last mile due to a unique combination of high silica compound with the Interact technology. They can adapt to differing conditions, provide comfort during a longer ride, they have agility in manoeuvres – even when worn. High silica compounds are known for their longevity and mechanical resistance to abrasion, but Metzeler have a patented mixing process which can further boost characteristics by increasing its dispersion inside the polymeric matrix and achieving an incomparable level of homogeneity. This high-quality compound is then coupled with a high tension 0° steel belt in the centre portion of the tyre that provides a firm support, reduces compound movement and prevents overheating, contributing to reduce the wear of the tyre and hence increase the mileage.

These Tyres ensure the best stability and allow you to ride with maximum confidence and safety thanks to the groove layout of the tread pattern, inspired by Greek π shape and engineered to enhance water drainage in the hardest conditions. The grooves modify the stiffness of the tyre and are used to calibrate and optimise the entire contact patch pressure at every lean angle. Their shape and position have been studied to provide mechanical grip at different lean angles and types of riding. Water drainage, even in deep water, is granted by the presence of large grooves in the footprint area, regardless of the angle. The central longitudinal grooves are deeper and longer to increase water evacuation. They cover approximately 70% of lean angle typically reached in wet conditions, which delivers a complete feeling of safety. In dry conditions, they work as a pin, which increases the flexibility of the tread and enlarges the footprint area, thus providing stability especially at high speed. Radial grooves on the shoulders provide optimum drainage at high lean angles, so even those who ride enthusiastically in the wet will discover that the Tyre provides maximum safety in all conditions. The inclination of the groove wall is designed for a consistent water flow throughout the tyre’s life, even when the wear process is near completion.
