Roadtec Z6 is the ideal travel partner which can offer you the highest safety by any type of weather.
The pattern of the front tire is to enhance cornering and handling. The central groove is for better draining and reducing the possibility of hydroplaning. The V-shaped lug will guide the water to the center and decrease the water splash. The main task of the rear tire is stability, comfort and longer endurance. The center rib will efficiently improve not only the comfort but also stable handling. Moreover, the wider TDW will effectively lengthen tire duration. The pattern on 2 wings will also increase the performance of cornering and water draining.
Front Tire: The camber angle of the front tire will be large due to cornering. Therefore, 40% of the cap tread at the shoulders, which is the contact patch on the ground while cornering, is made of the softer compound with better gripping. The central part of the tread is for straight riding. Harder rubber is used to enhance the endurance. Rear Tire: Although the camber is smaller on rear tire, the contact patch is wide due to the flatter profile. Therefore, better gripping compound is applied evenly on the both sides of the tread, respectively taking 40% of the cap. As for the rest 20% in the central part, harder rubber is to generate more power against the surface of roads.
JLSB (Jointless Space Belt) is put in use on Roadiac WF-1. Nankang applies “Single Steel Winding” technology on Roadiac. Comparing aramid or other fibers, steel belt could provide stronger stability, handling, stiffness, and temperature control. Roadiac is also less possible to be pierced and much safer.

A new High Silica compound with Nano particles ensures performance and safety in all weather conditions
The best wet performance in the Sport Touring segment
The wet weather handling of motorcycle tyres and especially the braking performance in wet conditions, is becoming an increasingly important feature demanded by the rider. This rider requirement occurs especially if it suddenly rains and a high level of security is needed. Metzeler has decided to develop the new (M) and (O) specifications to provide motorcyclists the latest technology in terms of wet grip by retaining a high level of performance in all other areas. The rear tyre of the specifications (M) and (O) has a bi-compound mixture. The rubber compound in the central section of the tread area, depending on the tyre size, is on average 45 mm wide, with a 70% silica content specifically designed for higher mileage and stability at high speeds. The tyre shoulders comprise of approximately 88 mm on each side of the profile and have a 100% silica compound, which increases dramatically the chemical grip in the wet and reduces sliding under all conditions. The front tyre also consists of a 100% silica compound.
