Metzeler Expands RoadTec 01 Range With New X-ply Sizes
The upcoming sport-touring Metzeler RoadTec 01 X-ply tires will provide fitments for older motorcycles as well as the new, smaller-capacity motorcycles. The RoadTec 01 X-ply tires are expected to be available this March.
Here’s what Metzeler says about the upcoming RoadTec 01 X-ply:
Compared to the radial version, RoadTec 01 X-ply features the use of different structures and compounds. In this way Metzeler applied the best solution for each and every application to meet the highest target performance for both radial and X-ply.
RoadTec 01 has been developed with absolute versatility in mind, enabling excellent wet performance, mileage and stability for pure road use. From short trips with a sporty riding style to adventurers or urban commuters, the range now meets the demands of sport-tourers, tourers, nakeds, enduro-street and supersport motorcycles from 150cc upward.
Special plastifying resins, enhancing compound mobility and adhesive properties, are combined with Silica to ensure that the RoadTec 01 also delivers incomparable grip in the wet. The relatively stiffer structures of the X-ply, coupled with chemical components and tread adhesives, therefore provide a very high level of grip, both in dry and wet conditions.
