Metzeler has announced an agreement with the Isle of Man TT to become the event's sole official tyre supplier for five years, from 2023 until 2027.

Isle of Man TT X Metzeler agreement

Metzeler has been named the official tyre of the Isle of Man TT in a deal which will last until 2027.

The German tyre brand is well-known for its exploits in enduro, where it currently holds the first three positions in the EnduroGP series, but its latest move confirms it as a top brand on the asphalt, as it has become the Official Tyre of the Isle of Man TT.

The move comes after a difficult year on the roads for Dunlop in 2022, in which it suffered failures both at the North West 200 and at the Isle of Man TT road races

Metzeler will continue to supply its Racetec RR tyre at the TT, as part of its new deal. This is the same tyre as has been used by Metzeler-sponsored teams and riders in the past.

Paul Phillips, Head of Motorsport Isle of Man Department for Enterprise, said: “Metzeler are a welcome addition to the line-up of official sponsoring brands for this year’s Isle of Man TT Races. Our commercial objective is to work collaboratively with our Official partners to add value to the TT experience for everyone involved in the event. 

“Metzeler is already integrally associated with the TT and is the tyre of choice for many teams competing in the event, with a proven performance track record. We are sure that this will be a successful partnership that will grow in strength over the years to come.” 

 Francesco Pietrangeli, Motorcycle Marketing Director Metzeler, said: “The Isle of Man TT is one of the oldest and best known motorcycle races in the world and has a unique and timeless appeal. Metzeler tyres have been involved in Road Racing for some time and over the years have contributed to the successes of many riders by supporting them and making our Racetec RR tyres available to them. 

“We are very delighted with the agreement which represents the natural evolution of our commitment to Road Racing and it is also the best way to celebrate the 160th anniversary of the birth of our brand.”
