135 points, 3rd place

As soon as you roll onto the road, the feedback is already there – the Roadtec 01 is really on its toes and after just a few meters gives clear feedback on how things are going with the reserves. The Metzeler also scores with exemplary self-damping. Comfort-oriented types of riders who like this slightly crunchy characteristic will have a lot of joy with this easily assessable rubber. The stability is okay, only if you have to go around the corner really quickly and diagonally, competitors such as B. Pirellis Angel GT more precisely on the chosen course.
