One of RACETEC™ RR SLICK's most distinctive feature is its versatility of use on a wide range of asphalts and temperatures. For this reason, front tyre compound choice should be made depending on whether the rider prefers higher stability and precision when entering the corner (K2 version) rather than predictability and “edge grip” feeling (K1 version). Predictability in racing tyres is the capability to alert the rider when the limit of adherence is close. When hard-braking and leaning to turn in a corner, the racer will feel this warning in the form of a softening of the handling combined with understeering due to the slipping fore carriage. The capability to handle such a situation is a contributing factor in making racers go faster. The neutral characteristics of RACETEC™ RR SLICK warns the rider when limits are being approached which enables the racer to experience a higher control feeling, to chase their best lap time.

Note: K0 = Super Soft, K1 = Soft, K2 = Medium. Temperature scale refers to tyre operating temperature. Compound choice can vary depending on bike setup and riding style. Please check with your dealer or racing service.

Handling and agility
RACETEC™ RR SLICK rear tyres features a major update in the change of dimension consisting in the oversizing of 180 and 190 series. The traditional supersport rear size, 180/55, has been evolved into the 180/60. Similarly the traditional superbike rear size 190/55 has evolved to 200/60. RACETEC™ RR SLICK features a sharper and wider contour, which means a larger contact patch at all lean angles. The profile speeds up the transistion from upright, into lean angle, meaning you reach lean angle quicker and thus more grip at full lean faster.
All asphalts, temperatures and setups
RACETEC™ RR SLICK was developed to achieve high adaptability across a wide range of motorcycles and offer easy setup. Single-ply rear tyre structures make them very similar to those for stock production of hyper sport machines, making it possible to use tyre pressures closer to those recommended by your motorcycle manfuacturer. This is an advantage and certainly assists with setup. RACETEC™ RR SLICK compounds aree extremely versatile and designed and tested to cope with a wide range of applications in terms of both asphalt roughness and the associated operating temperature range.
