Metzeler K3 Racetec Interact Front Tires

General Features:

  • The new Racetec adopts INTERACT™ technology, the latest evolution of the patented 0° steel belt
  • The new winding process of a 0° steel belt reduces the contribution made by belts and carcass to stress resistance all along the profile
  • Lower tension in the crown area creates more flexibility and the tire can adapt itself better to the road surface, enlarging its footprint
  • High steel belt winding tension in the shoulder area ensures maximum and uniform pressure on the contact patch: the trajectory is therefore always precise, without any deviation

Tread Design:

The tread has the same design as Racetec K0, K1, K2, DOT racing tires. The performance-oriented development of land/sea ratio distribution respects FIM Supersport regulations, and most of grooves are concentrated on mid-lean area, leaving shoulders slick-like.
Pattern design has been developed to enhance up to excellence:

  • Dry grip
  • Consistency of performance
  • Wear regularity through maximized tread compactness
  • Line holding
  • Stability

The result is therefore a performance of the tire nearly like a slick, maximizing the rubber on the ground. 

Structure:

The application of CMT (Contour Modeling Technology), tested in competitions, guarantees fast corner entry and stable and precise trajectory for a progressive cornering behavior. The structure of Racetec K3 is strictly derived from the Racing Supersport version, with optimizations aimed to improve the road performance, with particular focus on the stability on straight line. Metzeler has deployed the most innovative technologies to Racetec:

  • Intelligent Tensioning Technology (differentiated tensioning of carcass and belt across x-section) to  widen the contact area at lean
  • Patented 0° Steel Belt construction that grants a higher dimensional stability in every condition of use

Compound:

Hi-performance chemicals, combined with an enhanced Curing system give the tire:

  • high performance stability, both on road and on racetrack
  • fast warm-up
  • regular wear, even at high temperatures coming form prolonged use or severe racetrack conditions.

(W-) rated for speeds of 168+ mph.

Expensive but well worth the cost This was the stock tire on my 2012 BMW S1000RR. I got 8000 miles from the stock tire, no track days, just road riding. I was so pleased with the grip and handling, as well as the miles attained that I replaced them with the same tire. They are a little spendy, but worth it in my opinion. July 18, 2013
Metzeler K3 Racetec S1000rr The K3 is the stock tire for my bike and i love it it lasted me 4000 miles running up and gown the greman autobahn. The tire has seen over 190mph and never gave me any issues. March 14, 2013
Best 'All-around' street/track tire on the market These tires heat up amazingly fast and they stick and grip like crazy at the race track as well as on the street and have excellent line tracking on cornering. Pretty decent wet traction as well. If you ride alot on street and at the track, I found these tires are the best to get as they have best all around performance on both. If you mostly ride at the track but need a street legal tire, then I suggest to go with the Pirelli Supercorsa SP but as they don't heat up as fast I personally don't recommend the Supercorsa's on the street unless you use them in hot weather. Get the K3! Great anywhere, everywhere. November 21, 2012
