17" Front Metzeler Racetec SM

Metzeler Racetec SM - Front

Availability: In Stock!




Racetec™ line tire specialized for supermoto. Advanced racing compounds and profile for the most effective straight and sideways riding.


  • RACETEC™ SM front compounds are 100% silica compound with a reduced porosity, capable of ensuring fast warm up and self-cleaning properties when riding in the off road section of the track.
  • Can be used with or without tire warmers.
  • Compound choice should be based on track surface conditions: Asphalt friction coefficient (Abrasive or not) and asphalt temperature (with the threshold being around 77-86° degree).
  • Available in K1 (soft) and K2 (medium) compounds.

Construction & Handling:

  • The only supermoto tire adopting 0° radial steel belt both on front and rear tires, coupled with a lightweight carcass to promote ease of handling and trajectory holding. The result is a stable tire that distributes forces uniformly to the contact surface.
  • Rear profile is obtained through the Multiple Radius Contour technology, which deliver different behaviors at different lean angles. The Crown and shoulders feature a sharper radius for faster and precise handling (crown) and greater cornering stability (shoulder).

RIM SIZE NOTE: Please double check front rim size on your bike. Most street legal supermoto bikes come with a 17" rim from the factory, while factory race supermoto bikes like FS450 and 450SMR come with a 16.5" front tire.

CLOSED-COURSE USE ONLY: These are race tires, they are NOT approved for use on public roads or highways.
