          Description

          Metzeler Roadtec 01 Rear Tire

          ROADTEC™ 01 is the latest evolution in Metzeler touring tires. With a focus on enhancing grip on wet and low friction surfaces, increased mileage, and a high degree of adaptability to different motorcycles, riding styles, and conditions, the ROADTEC™ 01 provides modern solutions to past and future needs.

          • Increased grip on wet roads, with a focus on low friction surfaces (such as city streets and worn tarmac, low temperature), thanks to radial positioning of grooves
          • Rebalanced tire stiffness to allow a better adherence of the rubber with the tarmac micro-asperities, increasing mechanical grip even on lower friction surfaces
          • Belt and carcass tension parameters upgraded to increase stability on rear tires during strong braking
          • Increased mileage vs. Roadtec Z8 Interact (up to 10%), thanks to a different footprint shape (larger and shorter) which also enhances motorcycle handling
          • Higher wear resistance, obtained through a revised land/sea ratio on the rear tire in conjunction with the new tread design, ensures product performance consistency allowing users to enjoy the tire for its entire service life
          • Metzeler multi-compound rear on selected sizes, with increased harmonization between the different compounds
          • HWM (Heavy Weight Motorcycles) special version available to improve performances on motorcycles requiring them (see Metzeler website for details)
          • Tubeless (TL)
          • (W)-rated for speeds of 270 km/h (168+ mph)

          Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feel and traction. Good life. Bought these for a trip 2200 miles and very little wear so far. They see confidence inspiring on my ST4s. On a stretch of hwy 20 California below coastal 101I came onto a stretch of road covered in oil on the down slope. Bike began a slide, tires caught and nothing aggressive just caught. The tire on back doesn't wiggle around like PR4s. The 2 ply hwv on the back is perfect on my Duck. Well buy again.

          Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meilleur pneus que j'ai eu! Installé sur ma Yamaha FJR 2014. Meilleur pneus que j'ai eu! Meilleur que mes Michelin Pilot road 4 GT plus grippant sur les surfaces mouillée mais plus dispendieux a l'achat $$$ Pneu qui nous met toute suite en confiance. reste a voir la duré de vie. J'ai 5600 Km gonflé a l'azote pas vraiment de trace d'usure pour l'instant, a suivre.

          Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Tires! I bought these in 2017, and have since put almost 13,000 kms on them. The back is squaring off now and there is some minor scalping on the front. I'm sure I can still get another 3000 kms on these tires. These tires replaced the OEM Trailwings on my '07 V-Strom 1000. The Metzelers have literally transformed my bike. It is much more flickable, and I can lay the bike over in curves with confidence. Wet traction is second only to the Michelin Pilot Power 4's, and the Metzeler Roadtec 01's outperform the PP4's in the dry. I have done several long trips loaded up with luggage, and these Roadtec 01's have been a joy to ride on. I feel comfortable and confident on dry and wet roads on these tires. These tires definitely put the 'sport' into sport touring despite my V-Strom not being exactly a sport bike. I will definitely buy these tires again.

          Rated 5 out of 5 by from Infallable grip My bike came from the factory wearing sport oriented Dunlop tires that lasted about 11,000km before needing a new pair. I don't like to compromise on safety, so when my tires are the only thing between me and the road I feel it's worth investing in a top of the line touring tire. I'll admit to being quite a spirited rider, especially on an empty twisty mountain pass, and these tires have never missed a beat. My rear tire wore out after an impressive 18,300km so I replaced it with a new Roadtec 01, but the front will probably last to 25,000km or so. With the way these tires handle everything I throw at them, I'll probably be a Roadtec customer for life!

          Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed... After 10000 km, the front tire is scalloping... I was hoping to get at lease 15 to 20000 km. I'm looking for a replacement.

          Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Touring Tires Went through a couple sets of Angel GTs before trying these. These grip just as well, have better/smoother ride quality and just seemed to work better with my suspension. Only thing I didn't like was the noisy front tire as some have described. Good longevity and wear characteristics.

          Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic tires. I couldn’t be more impressed with these tires on my BMW K1300R. Im a year round rider in Vancouver and as soon as I got them on the bike I noticed a dramatic improvement. Some of this obviously is due to the tires being new (duh) but I was also struck with the improvement to handling and grip even over the previous tires when they were still fresh. Wet traction is phenomenal. It seems that there’s a lot of design and technology that’s really working in these tires and I couldn’t be happier with them.

          Questions

          What is the difference between 150/70-17 and 150/70-R17? Thanks in advance.

          Asked by: heli00
          The "R" means the tire is a radial tire, and a "-" or a "B" before the rim size means the tire is bias ply. Essentially the construction of the tire is different. Your owner's manual will recommend a specific tire size for your bike, and will have one of these before the rim size. You need to order the same as recommended in your owner's manual

          What is the difference between 150/70-17 and 150/70-R17? I've checked M's site and still can't figure it out.

          Asked by: Trod
          The R stands for Radial tire. A radial tire is manufactured using a different design technology than older Bias Ply tires. All current tire technologies use radial tires because of superior performance. The R in the tire designation has become redundant and that is why it is left off.

          Contemplating on buying a Metzler Roadtec 01 rear tire for my Yamaha yzfR1. I see a "HWM" model for heavy weight bikes, I guess it 2 ply instead of one, would it matter which one I bought? Would I give up some handling for durability? how about 50-55?

          Asked by: Nelson19
          My Duc ST4s I got about 9 thousand miles from a set with a bit left on the front.  HWV on back.

          This HWM option is confusing. The metzeler website tells you nothing about it. I entered my bike info there and still doesn't specify which tire to use. Google mentions any bike over 699cc is HWM, so that means i would want the HWM version for my FZ10?

          Asked by: DRNO
          I use the HWM on back of my Ducati ST4s and the regular on front. So yes on your ZX10.
