The Metzeler ME 888 Marathon Ultra Tyre is specifically designed for custom touring bikes and is an ultra-high mileage tyre, coupled with typical Metzeler performance and handling.

  • Outstanding high and low speed stability and smooth handling
  • Metzeler outstanding performance and handling
  • Specifically designed for custom touring Bikes
  • Consistent performance throughout the Tyres life
  • Improved wear regularity
  • Increased mileage and performance consistency

The Metzeler ME 888 Marathon Ultra Reinforced Motorcycle Tyre is the best partner for long and safe travelling on cruiser, tourers and their custom versions. Metzeler designed combined structure, profile, tread pattern and compound to determine the characteristics of the Tyres. The structure shape features a flat and wide geometry that allows any stress generated in the footprint to be dissipated towards the sidewall, reducing the fatigue and the wear process. To increase wear regularity, the transversal grooves of the tread pattern are discontinued by ‘compound bridges’, allowing the Tyre to have a solid and stiff Tread Design that reduces the stress transmitted to the belts and carcass plies. Also the edges of grooves are critical areas for wear regularity. The groove walls have different inclination to ensure the best operating angle in every position. The polymers of the compound are abrasion resistant, providing higher resistance to wear and hence high mileage. Longitudinal grooves have been included for water evacuation and even wear.

The tread pattern of ME 888 Marathon Ultra is an evolution of that of ME 880 with the target to ensure a high level of water evacuation whilst increase wear uniformity across the whole tread. There is also a relevant content of Silica in the compound formulation which ensures chemical grip on wet surfaces.

The ME 888 uses an innovative belt structure with a single ply of steel cords wrapped around a radial carcass at 0° (patented high performance technology by Metzeler for both front and rear tyres). This steel radial belt reduces the dynamic deformation of the tyre under centrifugal forces giving the tyre an excellent high-speed stability. Thanks to the more uniform heat distribution, mileage is increased and wear characteristics are more uniform. “Metzeler Advanced Winding” is a patented system for optimum spacing between the cords of the 0° steel belt. In certain sections of the tyre, the steel cords are wound with different spacing depending on the performance requirements on that particular area of the tyre. On both front and rear tyre the spacing is wider in the crown area for more elasticity and self-damping. For sections of the tyre used for mid lean, there is increased stiffness to support fast cornering. On the shoulder area on the rear tyre, the spacing is again wider for safe feedback and control when riding towards full lean.
