Thanks to innovative mixing process and to high ultra-fine silica content, RACETEC™ SM delivers quick warm-up and immediate self-cleaning in all compounds. RACETEC™ SM can be used without tyre warmers.
RACETEC™ SM All front tyres feature 100% silica compounds, with a reduced porosity, to ensure fast warm up and self-cleaning properties after riding on dirt track section. Compound choice should be mainly based on riding style (Stability Vs Contact feeling) and operating temperature.
RACETEC™ SM Rear compounds feature an enhanced thermal stability to keep under control the overheating effect triggered by drifting in the shoulder area. Compound choice should be based on asphalt roughness and operating temperature, as well as by the trade off between peak performance and durability.
