Anyone have experience with the RoadTec 01s vs. the Angel GTs?

I swore by the Angel GTs on my Aprilia, and have been comparitively unimpressed with the PR3s on the GRiSO I bought a few months ago.

Summers tend to be on the dry side where I live and I don't ride during the wetter ski season (Nov-Apr).  That said, if the RoadTec 01s have dry performance similar to that of the Angel GT, I'd be willing to give them a go this spring.

I am a Pirelli fan and have run Angels and Diablo's only on the GRiSO, none in stock at short notice so the Roadtec's were put one, they are in a different league to the Pirelli's they are superb

Thanks for the feedback sidrat. In what ways do you find the RoadTecs superior to the Angels?

question… Isn't Metzeler owned by Pirelli? are they actually different tires or simply a German plant?

ApriliaGuy - The grip in the dry and wet (especially Wet) is outstanding, they "feel" more glued to the road, the directional stability is better, they are also more comfortable, better in every way!. I love the Pirelli's and was not expecting a difference but they are a step change better.

Yes BB43215 - I am hoping they make some Pirelli's based upon the Metzellers, then i can get back to owning Italian tyres, to go with my Italian bike :-)

Thanks again sidrat. With better dry grip, wet grip, and probably a longer lifespan no reason not to give them a shot.

Any fresh opinions on the Metzeler Roadtec 01's now that they have been out for a while and they have gained some mileage?
I noticed in the latest motorrad test they end up only on the 6th place, with the old Angel GT's getting the first place, but I trust folks here with hands on experience more.

Link to test (in german but google translate does a fair job): [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I have Roadtecs on my R1200R and PR5’s on the GRiSO and to be honest, I have trouble finding fault in either and believe most modern tyre “problems” are either in the head or in the setup or a combination of both.
