Celebrating the talent and passion conveyed by women riders throughout twelve months of imagery, the 2017 Metzeler calendar “Natural Born Lady Rider” was created as a tribute to female motorcycle pride. It emphasizes the determination shown by women of all ages to ride their motorcycles.
This Metzeler initiative celebrates the 125th anniversary of the productive activity of motorcycle tires, as it continues with the theme of the campaign, Natural Born Lady Rider, launched last November with a movie marathon lasting 48-hours. Focused on women motorcyclists: from the movies shown at Deus Leica Theatre in Milan comes a full-colour calendar, produced in a limited edition, showing professional athletes and pure bike enthusiasts, from all over the world yet united by their love for motorcycling.
