The combination of a sturdy tread pattern and constant-curvature contours with dual compound rear tires ensures even wear and enhanced contact patch. Sport-touring like tire profiles ensure even wear and incredible stability in both straight line riding and side-to-side transitions, even with a passenger and give the rider effortless steering with a solid feeling up front no matter the pace. The Metzeler Cruisetec is designed to match or slightly exceed the mileage of OE V-Twin tires while providing the rider with unmatched riding performance and comfort. Softer shoulder compounds on the dual compound rear tires enhance confidence when pushing the limits. Internally, stiffer cords allow more room for thicker rubber, which offers enhanced damping properties. The result is a reduction in the "floating feeling" felt when exiting turns under hard accelerations and nearly eliminates "groove wander" when riding on ran grooves or other rough conditions. High silica compounds paired with a forgiving carcass structure and water shedding tread pattern deliver outstanding confidence during inclement weather. Designed with the future in mind, Cruisetec's linier contact patch response works with
all generations of rider aides such as ABS and traction control.
