METZELER ROADTEC 01 SE – The sporty side of touring
Following the success of the multi-award-winning ROADTEC 01 since 2015 in the sport-touring tyre segment, METZELER has decided to introduce the new ROADTEC 01 SE.
The ROADTEC 01 SE radial range completes METZELER’s catalogue, consolidating the strengths of the ROADTEC™ 01—its exceptional performance in wet conditions and high mileage—enhancing sports characteristics in terms of the grip and agility needed by supersport, naked and sport-touring riders.
To meet sports requirements that imply high performance at sharp leaning angles, the tread design for the ROADTEC 01 SE builds on that of the ROADTEC™ 01, with evolution towards a tyre with a slicker shoulder, optimising drive with a greater surface area in contact with the asphalt.
The front models of the ROADTEC 01 SE inherit the latest version of the full-silica compound used for the ROADTEC 01 and feature the same tread pattern in the middle section, a key aspect of its exceptional grip on low-friction surfaces. The shoulders are slicker, and the relative structural refinement optimises performance through half and full lean, improving agility and steering stability.
The rear models of the ROADTEC 01 SE use a bi-compound and, as for the front, feature a sportier evolution of the ROADTEC™ 01 tread pattern, aimed at offering greater drive at sharper leaning angles together with comfort and driving pleasure capable of satisfying even the most demanding riders, on long routes and winding roads. ROADTEC 01 and ROADTEC 01 SE: two products perfect for any adventurer with a sports attitude.

METZELER ROADTEC 01 SE is the best sport touring tyre according to British magazine RiDE
In a blind test that evaluated six of the best-selling sport touring tyres on the market, METZELER ROADTEC 01 SE is named as the best choice for consumers, with particularly high scores in steering and confidence categories.
The ROADTEC™ 01 SE radial range, in addition to consolidating high performance in the wet from low temperatures offered by ROADTEC™ 01, has also been developed to enhance the sporty characteristics of grip and agility required by those who ride sport, naked and sport touring bikes; and exactly these characteristics made the difference in the test organised by RiDE. In particular, the bi-compound METZELER technology applied to the rear tyre is combined with a sportier tread pattern design.
The British publication compared ROADTEC 01 SE with five rival products currently on the market and declared the product of the ‘blue elephant’ brand the clear winner of the comparison. The challenging twenty-two mile route nominated for the test included an alternation of motorway sections, main roads with flowing corners, secondary roads with poor surfaces and an urban section with mixed surfaces, in order to replicate exhaustively the characteristic usage of a touring motorcycle. . One of the most representative sport tourers of the segment, the iconic BMW R1250RS equipped with tyres in the sizes 120/70-17 and 180/55-17, was the designated tool used to make the comparison. The blind test method used meant that RiDE's expert testers were not aware of which product they had tested at the time of the evaluation and assigned a score from 1 to 10, in five different categories: steering, confidence, stability, ride quality and feel. At the end of the severe comparison, METZELER ROADTEC 01 SE was the absolute winner, obtaining the highest final score of 91 points out of a maximum of 100 and achieved RiDE magazine's recommendation as "Best Purchase".
ROADTEC 01 SE was also the only tyre to receive the maximum score of 10 points out of 10, from at least one of the two testers, in three categories out of five - steering, stability and confidence. In fact, particularly praised was the confidence that ROADTEC 01 SE is able to give the motorcyclist also at high speeds, thanks to the level of grip available even at low temperatures, and the light and precise steering felt from slow to fast corners. The final verdict of the magazine quotes: “The difference these made to the BMW was very impressive - it felt lighter, like it had better suspension – and worked amazingly from cold. The biggest improvement of any tyre here."
