Roadtec 01 is the latest evolution in Metzeler touring tires, with a focus on enhancing grip on wet and low friction surfaces, an increased mileage and a high degree of adaptability to different motorcycles, riding styles and conditions. The contemporary answer to past and future needs - providing riding stability, comfort and handling on naked, sport and touring motorcycles.


  • Heavy Weight Motorcycle spec tire with increased stability from a 2-ply carcass, where standard rear tires have only 1 ply
  • Dual compound layout features a central stripe with high silica content mixed with carbon black, to increase mileage and stability, while shoulders have a full silica compound providing top notch chemical grip
  • The central stripe covers approximately 30% of the tread pattern section, with the remaining 70% of full silica compound equally split between the two shoulders
  • Similar compounds between front tires and rear tires shoulders provides a homogeneous contact feeling to the rider
  • Multi-compound tire with increased harmonization between compounds
  • Improved compounds solutions aid in both durability and grip so you can ride longer and safer
  • Structural elements fine tuning and Metzeler Interact technology promote adaptive behavior across a wide range of motorcycles and riding situations
  • Tuning of structural elements for balanced stiffness/flexibility across tire contour gives stability, precision and predictability in riding
  • Rebalanced tire stiffness for better adherence of rubber to tarmac
  • Variable 0° steel belt tension layout reduces movements and vibrations while enhancing precision and absorbing bumps, conveying the stress toward the tire sidewall
  • Belt and carcass tension upgraded for increased stability on rear tires during strong braking
  • Tread groove geometry and positioning grants long lasting performance
  • Tread design enhancing mechanical grip allows for increased confidence and safety feeling while riding
  • High transversal degree tread design gives increased mechanical grip for more safety when riding, even on difficult surfaces
  • Tread design as a whole grants a higher water drainage ratio compared previous generations
  • Groove placement and geometry fine tuned for all lean angles and riding in a straight way
  • Radial positioned grooves increase grip on wet roads with a focus on low friction surfaces, such as city streets and worn asphalt
  • Revised land/sea ratio provides higher wearing resistance in conjunction with tread design ensures consistent performance for the entire tire life
  • Larger and shorter contact patch provides reduced tire consumption so you can ride longer and further - up to 10% increased mileage vs. Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact tires
  • Contact patch holds a higher number of tread design elements, thereby increasing its efficiency
  • Footprint includes a higher section of the full-silica shoulder compound, which is capable of delivering the highest chemical grip on wet and low friction surfaces
  • Profile works in synergy with the improved compounds to ensure an extended product lifecycle
  • Extended mileage and performance consistency with enhanced precision and riding comfort
  • Unsurpassed rider confidence when leaning, braking and accelerating on all types of roads and highways
  • Increased grip across a wide range of riding environments, weather and temperature conditions
  • Surpasses 2015 test winner Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact tires in grip, mileage, and wet weather performance
  • Weight icon next to the product name on the tire sidewall
  • This motorcycle tire is tubeless
  • These sport touring motorcycle tires are W rated for speeds up to 168 mph
