ROADTEC™ 01 SE ROADTEC™ 01 SE Choose the Metzeler ROADTEC™ 01 SE tires and discover the pleasure of driving safely and with high performance!


ROADTEC™ 01 SE is METZELER evolution in the Sport Touring segment that enhances handling and grip for supersport and naked motorcycles preserving mileage and performance in wet conditions.


Grip on every surface, extra grip in full lean

Even starting from the award-winner ROADTEC™ 01, the tread pattern design of ROADTEC™ 01 SE features a higher land/sea ratio on tire’s shoulders both on the front and the rear, which grants enhanced sportiveness and a muscular presence dedicated to the sporty share of sport tourers.
As a matter of fact, the center section of ROADTEC™  01 SE matches the land/sea ratio of ROADTEC™ 01 reaching the value of 82% in order to benefit from advanced water drainage technologies developed for the ROADTEC™ 01.
Moving sideways, the shoulders of  the ROADTEC™ 01 SE feature a land/sea ratio that swings from 90% to a slick rubber starting from 25 degrees of lean angle on, evolving the 84%-to-94% swing of the grand-tourer ROADTEC™ 01.
Thanks to this feature, ROADTEC™ 01 SE puts more rubber to the road at large lean angles, ensuring enhanced cornering thrust and directionality.

Mileage and performance consistency

ROADTEC™ 01 SE preserves the outstanding mileage of ROADTEC™ 01.
The front central footprint features a great amount of grooves that ensure mechanical grip, water drainage and safety, still lowering the specific compound stress to contain overheating and to enhance duration.
The rear endless center stripe minimizes slip to limit compound abrasion.

Safety on wet and low friction surfaces

The ROADTEC™ 01 SE inherits its tread design from the multi-awarded ROADTEC™ 01 with large improvements in terms of limit adherence at full lean.
The front tire features a great amount of transversal grooves that deliver mechanical grip and ensure water drainage is severe wet conditions.
The rear tire couples both steep and short grooves to meet complementary functions: the former improve traction on low friction surfaces; the latter prevent lateral slip and increase in-line stability.


Transversal grooves:
  • Ensuring mechanical grip
  • Drain the water when raining
  • Fine interaction with ABS
Larger land/sea ratio on shoulders:
  • More rubber to the road at full lean
  • Increased line-holding
  • Enhanced cornering thrust and edge grip


  • Full-silica compound enhance chemical grip and matches the mechanical grip ensured by the groove layout
  • Fine, homogeneous compound emphasizes chemical properties, ensures wear uniformity and Sport-Touring performance
Saber-shaped grooves:
  • Enhanced mechanical grip
  • Efficient water drainage
Drop-shaped grooves:
  • Increase traction on low-friction surfaces
  • Improve stability and motorcycle control in braking
  • Accelerate compound warm-up
New slick shoulder:
  • Increased grip until the limit lean angle
  • Improved safety feeling when cornering


  • Dual-compound scheme with a 40% - 20% - 40% layout.
    Center stripe is a balanced silica-carbon-black for high-speed stability and heat dispersion
  • Full-silica side stripes are for excellent chemical grip on wet and low friction surfaces, and quick warm-up for enhanced edge grip.
    Side compound match the phisycal characteristics of the front one, in order to ensure an homogeneous contact feel in lean
