Begin press release:
The METZELER brand is pleased to present the 2019 METZELER CALENDAR that, as per tradition, presents two versions. The Classic one, now in its 25th year, is celebrating two-wheeled competition between the 60’s and 70’s with black and white shots. The thematic one is entitled “WAYS OF CRUISING” and is dedicated to the custom cruiser world;a world which the German tire brand has always had a strong presence. 2019 will also see the debut of the new CRUISETEC, a Custom Touring tire that optimizes the performance of V-Twins.
When it comes to tires, cruiser owners are historically very demanding and, although with different riding styles, these riders travel great distances enjoying the road. Their expectation for their tires is clear: they must offer reliability and confidence, regardless of road conditions, usage and weather.
The METZELER brand, known for being at the forefront of technology, offers the right choice for every rider with its custom tire range. Whether you ride the latest generation powerful cruiser and you want to perfect the performance of your machine, or you’re looking for a mileage-orientated tire with a wide variety of fitments, the new 2019 METZELER custom tire range delivers a product to meet every rider’s needs.
Whichever style a rider chooses, it’s important to enjoy the ride and the evocative imagery on the pages of “WAYS OF CRUISING”, which showcases innovative approaches and new styles within this segment alongside elements of classic cruising. The search for performance builds the bridge to the timeless charm of the CLASSIC calendar that brings to life the heroes of the past. From Barry Sheene, Angel Nieto and Börje Jansson (January-February) to Phil Read and Jarno Saarinen (May-June) and Giacomo Agostini (November-December), to name just a few, the calendar portrays them as they fight for those decisive fractions of seconds with bold decisions and tight curved lines to achieve victory.
