METZELER now extends its KAROO range towards road use with the new KAROO Street. Delivering excellent road performance, even in wet conditions, the new enduro tire is aggressively styled, with its knobby tread pattern that provides off-road capability. The tire has been developed for the latest generation of adventure, big enduro and dual-purpose motorcycles, capable of taking dirt roads in their stride. Main features include excellent handling and grip in comparison to its knobby tire competition, due to the sport touring derived profiles that deliver a typical on-road dynamic behavior; Enhanced safety with reliable grip in wet conditions, generated by the high silica compounds that promote chemical grip on wet asphalt; The KAROO Street’s layout of blocks and variable spacing between the knobs provides excellent dirt road traction especially in long-distance clay and hard-packed trails; Large sized blocks and their coupling to a stiff carcass, provides perfect stability at high speeds on road, even when fully loaded with luggage and passenger; and the tire offers high effective mileage due to abrasion-resistant compounds. The new KAROO Street will be available from March 2018 onwards.
