Metzeler ROADTEC 02 Tires

Metzeler ROADTEC 02 tire

ROADTEC 02 is the first tire to use DYNATREAD, the patented adaptive tread design technology that allows it to adapt its behavior from Sport-Touring to Supersport based on the motorcyclist’s riding style, almost creating a new category of tire: the “Super-Sport-Touring.”

ROADTEC 02 is made with more than 43% of bio-based and recycled materials, as certified by a third party, Bureau Veritas. The use of this type of material also offers excellent results from a performance point-of-view.

This new motorcycle tire is aimed at those who use sport touring, naked, crossover, adventure but also supersport machines and who are looking for a tire with a sportier appearance and performance than those of a traditional sport-touring without giving up good mileage and safety, even on wet surfaces.
