I liked them. Worked well in the dirt, and pretty good on the road.

Not the most stable feel when leaned over... but very nimble feeling. I want a 2nd set of rims with them for ADV rides.

I just replaced them with a set of the new Scorpion Trail II.

My bad I was thinking K60 Scout...the Scorpion Corsas would be my next tire.

I Ride: 2013 red Hyper, motobecane fatbike, custom 29+ build
Just to add my info to the mix

Original scorpions lasted 8800 miles, changed front & rear to

Michelin Pilot Road 4's: 9500miles (rear needs changed soon but not front) Probably end up with 10,000mi on rear. Highly recommended over stock!

*95% road 5% gravel/dirt

I Ride: HyperStrada Rosso '15
Picking up my "new" HS tomorrow - with a fresh pair of PIRELLI Angel GT's.

I ride these since release a few years ago (with Biaggi on a flightdeck).

Good durability and confidence in the wet

Hi all,

Second set of Metzeller Sportec M7RR, yesterday, after 6000 km!
Those tires are fantastics, dry, wet, wide curves, mountain road, gravel. Always on top!
Just need to dismount center stand...
Perfect for fast cornering supermot riding or very fast curve knee down.
Full throttle all along curves is very addictive!
The limit of those tires are very far and when you're playing too much they are very preventing.
The road could be messy, it doesn't matter, grip is always here.
The mileage is short but it worth it.

Nobody tried them?

I Ride: Hyperstrada
Used Michelin PR4 since 2014.
This time I put on the new Metzeler Roadtec 01.

After 300 miles I am more then pleased. A nice bike got even nicer.
Very good stability and confidence. So far the best tires I have had on this bike.
I ride mainly on asfalt, dry and wet.

Michelin Pilot Road 4.
Handling (how well it turns in and holds a line): 4
Stability high speed: 3.5
Stability corners: 4
Dry Grip: 4
Wet Grip: 5
Braking: 4

Metzeler Roadtec 01
Handling: 5
Stability: 5
Dry Grip: 5
Wet Grip: don't know yet, but according to test as good as Michelin
Braking: 5

I Ride: 13' Hyperstrada, 00' M900Sie
Burned up a rear T30r to the cords in 6000 miles. Was quite disappointed in the rear. The front, however, is fantastic. No cupping to speak of yet, and the tire looks barely worn! It even looks I'll be able to get two more rears out of it before getting to the wear bars.

I got two rear Bt-023's for $220 total, so that's what I'm replacing it with this weekend. 3D printed a few balancing cones for the rear rim to put on my normal balance stand.

Metz road tec looks very promising. Considering it has the highest score compared with the PR4. This would surely be my next brand and model in line. Just pity that 4 wheel online isn't carrying this brand. (I have good discount with them).
