Race bikers need a tyre that offers the highest level of safety
– even if they ride with high speeds. Then a sport touring diagonal motorbike tyre
is needed to offer them maximum adherence even on wet roads, and maintain the motorbike stable when turning. Despite this extreme exposure, bikers expect the tyres to have a long life. Well-known tyre producers like Michelin
know the demands of their customers and offer appropiate sport touring diagonal motorbike tyres - diagonal tyres
are still available, even if, radial tyres
have a better speed performance
and are preferred by most bikers.
What are diagonal tyres?
Especially elderly bikers still use this type of tyres
, while modern bikes are usually fitted with radial tyres
. The steel wires of the casing's layers on diagonal tyres are crossed obliquely
- for race motorbike tyres the angle is also narrower. The sport touring diagonal motorbike tyres have specific dimensions , e.g. 6.40-15. 6.40 is the tyre's width
in inches, 15 is for the tyres's diameter
in inches. On mytyres.co.uk
you will find diagonal motorbike tyres in different dimensions.
