The Metzler Roadtec tire is the one for you if you wish to have a tire for your recreation sporty or sport visiting bike. It is going to provide you with good mileage and control. Good in wet climate and best for those of you who are commuting but also good for those of you who’re doing some long haul mileage. These are being made for activity sporty bikes whether or not you’re on a 600 or 1,000. Or maybe you are on probably the most recent crop of nakeds in the market, F07, F09, might be you’re zipping around on a Z800. A Roadtec is going to be the tire for you.
This is a new entrant to that sport touring tire market. And that is a new release of the previous Z8 interact tire. Metzler has updated the Z8 Interact with the Roadtec and there are a couple of things that they’re promising us with the brand new Roadtec. The first is better wet weather braking. This is surely a bold claim considering the wet weather breaking on Z8 was already fantastic and phenomenal.
Another thing that defines the Roadtec is the fact they revised the land to C ratio. When talking about these features, the land part of the tire is the raised sections of tread and then C section is the void between the raised sections. If you look at the tread in this tire, Metzler revised this a bit to combat one of the funky wear that can happen with tires. So what they did was they kind of transformed things to get better wear, lower road noise and to give a longer life to what was already a pretty long wear tire. The Roadtec is an outstanding tire for those of you who are seeking to put in long miles and for the moments you are really going to hit real world weather. For those of you who like commuting and those of you taking long trips where you know you will have bad weather, the Roadtec is going to take you safely through it.
