Among the supersport fans the SPORTEC™ M7 RR is an instance. For them, this is top news: Metzeler is launching a worthy successor with the SPORTEC™ M9 RR! It builds on the strengths of its predecessor and surpasses it in all areas according to the manufacturer's promise.
The name SPORTEC™ stands for everyday road sport tyres which guarantee great driving experience, safety and versatility. The abbreviation RR stands for Road-Racing, and when you think of road racing, you inevitably think of the legendary Tourist Trophy on the Isle of Man, where Dean Harrison won the 2019 Senior TT Race on METZELER tyres. But road racing is not just about performance - the tyres have to work safely in unpredictable weather and road conditions. This central basis for every good road tyre was also the guiding principle of the new METZELER and therefore led to the credo "RIDE THE UNEXPECTED".
ou can find the new SPORTEC™ M9 RR in different sizes here in our shop.
ROADTEC™ 01 SE
Another Metzeler top seller will get a new face in 2020. With the ROADTEC™ 01 SE METZELER is expanding its ROADTEC™ 01 program with a particularly powerful version. Wet handling and mileage remain the great strengths, but the new model noticeably enhances its sporty characteristics with even more grip and agility. It is therefore ideally suited for supersport riders, naked bikes and sport tour riders.
The profile design of the ROADTEC™ 01 SE builds on that of the ROADTEC™ 01. In comparison, the tyre shoulder is now designed with a more positive tread pattern. This increases the contact area with the ground and offers maximum performance even at lean angles.
Find the right size of the ROADTEC™ 01 SE here in our shop.
RACETEC™ TD Slick
You are looking for a race track and enjoy the advantages of a slick tyre, but don't want to be bothered by additional equipment? Then Metzeler has a new model for the race track for you - the RACETEC™ TD Slick. It promises best performance even without tyre warmer and special suspension set-up. This makes it a particularly easy to handle racetrack slick.
One of the main features of the RACETEC™ TD Slick is a high and constant performance even after several sessions. It also offers great versatility when used on different track surfaces and at different operating temperatures, as well as high abrasion resistance. Particularly practical: to counteract one-sided wear, the rear tyre can be mounted in both running directions.

Power Slick 2
With the new Power Slick 2 the well-known all-round racing tyre Power Slick Evo gets a significantly upgraded successor. The first-time use of the 2CT+ Bi-Compound technology on the rear wheel with a new compound with a high soot content is proof of this. Nevertheless, the newly developed plug&play slick tyre for trackdays and hobby racing retains its main characteristics - easy handling, high grip, high mileage - and with its short warm-up times quickly builds up confidence in its grip on the track.
Here with us - soon with you on the track!
In the cruiser segment, Michelin is launching the new Commander III in two versions - Cruiser and Touring. In both versions, wet grip and mileage are the main focus.

City Grip 2
For scooter riders, a lot of grip counts on all road types and especially in all weather conditions. Michelin wants to meet these requirements with the new City Grip 2. For this purpose, a new rubber compound with high silica content has been developed which, together with the new tread pattern with special "shark tooth" areas on the tread, offers high wet grip. At the same time, the combination of rubber compound and tread design ensures high mileage. The new City Grip 2 replaces the well-known City Grip and City Grip Winter as it also features the M&S marking which makes it an extremely attractive alternative for urban use in 32 dimensions.
Many dimensions of the new City Grip 2 can already be found here.
Starcross 5 Mini
Because young motocross riders can expect the same performance from their tyres as their idols on the big machines, Michelin has expanded its range of junior cross tyres with a variant of the StarCross 5 series: the new StarCross 5 Mini has the same DNA as the StarCross 5 Medium and covers a wide range of terrain and grip levels. Two years have been invested in the development of this new series, resulting in an attractive mix of high grip and long tyre life.
The Startcross 5 Mini will be available in our shop shortly.
The toughest conditions are common during extreme events like the Erzbergrodeo, the Romaniacs and the GetzenRodeo. The focus is on grip, traction and durability of the tyre. The new Michelin Enduro Xtrem rear tyre is the result of three years of research and development and is designed to offer high grip on the most demanding surfaces. Besides traction, abrasion resistance is another important aspect of this new tyre which offers the best chance of success for enduro racers. Already in 2019 Manuel Lettenbichler (KTM) became World Champion in the WESS Ultimate Enduro World Championship with the MICHELIN Enduro Xtrem. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team with rider Graham Jarvis also relies on the new Enduro Xtrem from Michelin.
