Metzeler Roadtec Z8™: synonymous with safety

Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact™ is the safest sport touring tyre on wet roads.

As certified by the German Motorrad TestCenter, which carried out a test for which it bought the Metzeler products and those of its direct competitors.

To guarantee a high level of safety to motorcyclists, Metzeler decided to develop new tread compounds for its Roadtec Z8 Interact tyres with the clear objective of offering them not only the latest technological solutions in the area of wet handling, but also the chance of having a tyre that represents the new point of reference in all weather conditions, from wet and cold to dry.

The values taken into consideration by the Motorrad TestCenter test in the wet were: riding precision and characteristics, maintenance of trajectory under acceleration, ease of riding, grip when cornering, grip of the front and rear tyres in lean angle, grip in acceleration, handling on the limit, response when leaning and braking stability in the complete braking phase with ABS.

The motorcycles selected for the test were a Honda CBR600F ABS and a Suzuki Bandit 1250 ABS. The test took place at the Vizzola Ticino track network last January and February in the dry in slightly cloudy weather.

The Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact™ was not only the safest tyre in the wet, but also the fastest over the timed lap. Considering all the values taken into account, the Motorrad TestCenter crowned the Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact™ superior to its competitors in its segment.
