The industry’s first cold weather tyre designed for safer winter scooter riding
The new Feelfree Wintec is the latest innovative solution proposed by Metzeler for high performance scooters. Enlarging its product range with a premium tyre, fully exploiting the high-tech development and know-how always offered by the German brand.
The 2-wheel specialist modifies habits and seasonality of the urban vehicle, developing a special product to face a more secure feeling in cold and wet condition. The tread design represents the most visible application of Metzeler's new technology: based on Metzeler's winning experience in sport-touring motorcycle tyre development, the new tread pattern is characterized by the presence of sipes.
The tread pattern is designed in order to optimize the front and rear land/sea ratio maximizing performance especially in wet conditions. The sipes play their important role offering the best traction in wet conditions (center of the pattern) and contact feeling when turning (shoulders). The shape of the sipes have been engineered for assuring a fast warm up time without inducing too much movement of the tread.
