Metzeler Racetec K2 Soft Rear Tires


  • 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

0° Steel Radial:

Innovative belt structure, with a single ply of steel bandinas wrapped at 0° around a radial carcass. Patented technology by Metzeler for both front and rear high performance tires. Steel features a higher stiffness rating than textile, and this allows the reduction of weight. Steel radial belt reduces the dynamic deformation of the tire under centrifugal forces, giving the tire an excellent high-speed stability. Mileage is also increased thanks to the more uniform heat distribution and wear characteristics are more uniform.

MAW (Metzeler Advanced Winding):

Depending on the cross section position, the steel cords are winded with differentiated spacing. On both front and rear tires, the cords are wider in the crown area for more elasticity and self dampening and closer in the areas involved in mid leans for improved stiffness during fast cornering.

Interact Multi Zone Tension:

Modular steel string winding tension: the performance of the compound depends on the stiffness of the structure. Performance exactly where needed for maximum adaptability to different riding styles.

CMT (Contour Modelling Technology):

Advanced design technology of tire contour tuned on high-performance riding style on modern sport bikes. Front and rear tire profile matching is optimized through the combination of different profiles, each of them optimized for a single lean angle. The final contour design of the set features the best performing behavior for every riding style and all modern bikes: predictability, grip limit feedback and cornering stability.

W-rated for speeds up to 168 mph.

Realy Good track day/race tyre.
The K2 give awesome grip and warm up time is ok. But for track day riding I would recommend tire warmers. They have plenty of feel and will let you know when they are about to let go on the side wall. The K1 front must be one of the best tires for late braking and late turn in....it gives you unbelievable confidence on the front end. Really good sticky tire,,,but don't expect to be doing 1000's of miles on them. The K2 rear allows you to pull long black lines out the corners with the feel it gives you. But don't expect to that for to many laps as they will not last. But over all I love these tires and will not use anything else on track.
