Motoworld Philippines in partnership with Metzeler Motorcycle Tyres, Yamaha Motor Philippines, Imprint Customs and Forged Philippines invited select motorcycle enthusiasts, vloggers and media outfits that will face this year’s 2019 Metzeler Lahar Experience last April 17, 2019 at Angeles City, Pampanga.

These special guests get an exclusive sneak peak at the parts of the route and some of the activities the participants will undergo the Lahar Challenge.

Using Yamaha XTZs installed with Metzeler MC360 Off-Road tires as their steeds for the day, the participants’ riding skills were put to test as they have learned new ways on how to maneuver the motorcycles across the unpredictable lahar, while others experienced the rough, beautiful lahar landscape by taking a special tour in a 4×4 vehicle. The special route took everyone through Sapang Bato, hot springs, streams and other points of interest in the lahar area. Participants were also challenged with exciting games such as the Fastest Lap Tandem Ride and Forged Fire Starting Challenge. With the use of Morakniv’s Eldris Neck Knife Kit of Forged Philippines, the participants even learned how to start fire – one of the most basic outdoor survival skills.

MC360 Metzeler Tyres

MC360 is METZELER’s off-road tyre range dedicated to specific segments of professional and amateur riders of several off-road disciplines: ranging from Motocross to Supercross, including Cross-country and Freestyle.

It is a versatile product which, with two specifications only, the Mid-Soft and the Mid-Hard, ensures high level dynamic performances on a wide range of different terrains, maximizing grip and traction in the turns, and ensuring an ideal behavior in all weather, on any terrain. Thanks to its high versatility, resistance and durability, the MC360™ enables professional and amateur riders to reduce the efforts and set-up needed on their bikes.

The whole-day affair was just a taste of what will be going down on May 4 and 5, when 2019 Lahar Challenge participants put their riding and non-riding skills to the test through a two-day challenge in the lahar area.
