Motorcycle Tires Are Always Sliding In The Bends

You might be surprised to see the title. What, is the slide not going to cause the car to fall? Is it bad to slide? If it's always slipping, why are we still safe to go through every corner instead of falling out? Read the following article carefully and your doubts will be answered.

Because of the particularity of the motorcycle two wheel, the knight can not rely on four rounds or the natural balance of the tricycle to maintain upright and smooth movement, especially in the bending, we need the help of traction to smooth through every corner. Knowing what the limit of your crotch's traction is, it means knowing how fast you can go through it. Unfortunately, for most riders, the traction limit is almost impossible to measure.

Understanding where traction is coming from may help to solve the problem. Traction is a tire rubber layer of different chemicals, coupled with the exact amount of gas, different tread depth and different tire temperature combination of a product, the combination of different, traction will inevitably change.

Heat a fixed tire to the optimum tire temperature, tilt 45 degrees, and then increase the pressure exerted on the tires. At one point, the tyre will eventually slip-the weight that is loaded on the skid point of the tyre is 101% of the traction limit of the tyre data (or it may be assumed to be the same).

In actual riding, the ultimate traction calculation is not as simple as the above. In the process of tyre grip, it also "takes off" part of the material. It "takes off" things are different chemicals, including: oil, wax, and rubber mixed with a variety of pigments. The friction of the tyres and the ground and the resulting heat will grind off the ingredients. Have you noticed that there will be a ring of purple on the tires after the high-speed cornering? This ring is called "Glory Halo". "Rong Halo" is the tire inside the chemical because heat is removed from the tires produced.

The mixture of oily ingredients in the rubber makes the rubber softer and thus more fitting. When these oily ingredients are "taken off" by nature, the tires become dry, slippery, and the outer layers become like dead skins that are produced by intense sunlight. In this case, the "dead skin" must be removed to allow the fresh, soft rubber underneath the dead skin to come out. The way to complete the action of the dead skin is to rub, which usually requires a certain amount of slippage to complete. Tire engineers suggest that a 15 degree longitudinal slide gives the tyres the best friction and the most functional tire temperature. Do not slide here, in fact, the vehicle in this slide can still maintain a stable line, a small amount of sliding just to clean the tires of the "dead skin."

In the absence of external forces, the front wheels release fresh unused rubber in three ways: 1 Tyre and ground tilt, 2 grip friction, and 3 brakes. In a steady state, before and after the brakes and acceleration, the front and rear wheels are only inclined and rubbed to clean the dead skin.
The motorcycle instinct is to move vertically until it is forced to turn by some force, which is one of the forces in the front wheel. This forced movement creates friction between the front wheel and the ground, which forces the vehicle into the corners and finishes the entire curve in a certain angle. But even so, the tyre is still sliding, sliding outward, which is the dip angle.

The slide dip is a very interesting concept: imagine if you can stop the entire vehicle after tilting into the bend and then jump out of the car and push over the corners, you will find that the line of the car is much tighter than when you rode past.

The vector force is another factor that affects traction. It works like this: whether it is the front wheel or the rear wheel, the more the outer part of the tire's rubber circumference, will be shorter than the circumference of the inner tyre rubber, which means that, in the same amount of time, the external rubber will pass longer distances than the inner tire rubber, so that the external rubber will be faster than the inner tire rubber through the same distance. Internal tire rubber through the slow speed, resulting in the speed of the external rubber drag and drop, so as to produce traction, can not only clean the rubber "dead skin", but also help the vehicle to maintain a stable line.

In any corner, the tyre is always sliding at a speed that keeps the vehicle up and balanced. You can't bend--not even wear your tires to the point you need to change--if your tires don't slide.
