The Metzeler RACETEC TD SLICK combines the advantages of a slick tyre but do not require tyre warmers or elaborate bike settings, according to Metzeler. You can now pick up a pair of hoops ready for your next track day, they are also available in a new size of 180/60R17!

The structure of the TD slick is proof of the ever improving tyre technology available to the public.

You wouldn’t dare leave the pits on stone cold slicks if you want to finish lap around the track still on your bike. Metzeler, however, have found a way to eliminate the use of tyre warmers to keep the costs down and track days easier by having a broader operating range, with these essentially replacing the Racetec Interact K3 from previous years, the hardest race slick from Metzeler.

The secret is comes from the TD SLICK featuring a racing compound that includes polymers with a low glass transition temperature, carbon black and high melting temperature resins. Metzeler engineers have designed a compound capable of operating in a wide range of temperatures and asphalt conditions, in order to offer consistency in performance and resistance to cold tearing.

The tyre has been made in sizes that will fit straight onto most 1000cc bikes without having to change your set-up.

Metzeler have kept the sizing simple by providing the most common rear sizes, so you don’t have to muck around with changing the rear setup. The Genuine sizes allow a smoother transition from OEM tyres geometries to racing tyres, and helps the rider skip some of the setup variables a professional racer is required to manage.
