Having been nominated Best Touring Tyre by the renowned German Motorrad Magazine, the Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact continues to impress, this time winning the Motorcycle News ‘Tyre of the Year Award’.

Motorcycle News Editor Andy Calton explained the rationale behind the award. “MCN experts thought long and hard over what products should be considered for this prestigious award. Staffers who ride bikes huge distances day in and day out, in all sort of conditions, came to a unanimous decision on the products of the year”.

Many things are taken into account when deciding which products should receive the annual MCN prize. Things such as innovation, relevance to the market, price and simply just how well the product performed.

The Metzeler Roadtec Z8’s score highly in all of these discussions. A tyre that really does perform well on a vast variety of bikes, in many different situations cannot be ignored. In all of MCN’s tests and riding experiences the Metzeler’s performed superbly well and lasted a long time.

Unlike the awards for Best Motorcycle in each type of market segment, the Best Tyre category offers just one overall winner, making this Sports Touring tyre’s accolade even more impressive.

Metzeler UK Product and Marketing Manager Jim Worland commented; “An MCN award is probably the most prestigious motorcycle industry accolade and to win with a product in the ultra-competitive Sport Touring segment is testament to the quality of the Metzeler brand. The Roadtec Z8 Interact has been on the market for a couple of years, but being a company that is constantly innovating, our compound chemists have developed an amazing product that is clearly the number one on wet roads as proven by independent comparison tests conducted by MCN and the German Motorrad Test Center. A tyre perfectly suited to the UK’s changeable climate.”
