Metzeler ME888 Marathon Ultra Motorcycle Tyre (Whitewall)
The new Metzeler ME888 Marathon Ultra has huge boots to fill in trying to replace the very popular ME880 Marathon which has been a legend for many years, but that's exactly what these German boffins have done with this range. Where would you start? Well, first and foremost, it would have to be grip and performance. This has been achieved by focusing on everything, from the compound and structure to the actual tread and profile. Another dilemma facing these engineers was how to make the tyre last longer, giving the rider extra miles but at the same time, and most importantly, not diluting grip, stability and agility throughout the tyres life. Well tests show that they even managed to conquer that! The new tread pattern has even had a significant role to play in its ability to disperse surface water better and together with the improvement in structure, makes for better even wear of the entire tread.
