compliant, superior grip
January 31, 2013(Sandy Hook, CT)
2800 miles on my GSX-R1000,< 200 highway miles, all DRY country road riding at reasonably aggressive speeds (former club road racer). Made every turn and ride a pleasure, until I 1st started noticing tire squaring off 800 miles ago(I am very in tune with what my tires and bike are doing). Side wear to the edge is scuffed & still good. If mileage isn't your concern, this tire is awesome.

I have tried them on my r1 and my zx6r on the track and street... I dont think these tires can be beat. They outlast the pirellis and cost half as much...you cant go wrong with these tires. Handling is perfect in every respect. I havnt ridden them in the rain however due to the fact it never rains in san diego. Who wants to ride in the rain anyway?
Great tire for my 400!

I mated this on the rear with a Qualifier on the front of my CB-1 (CB400F) and they work well together. The rear lasted only 2k miles, but it worked great for every one of them. I have another ready to be spooned on.

We use the race version of this tire on the front of our race bike. A race version is not available for the size we need in the rear, so we use this tire for endurance racing. We get the same grip and feedback from this tire as we do from the race one. Plus, this tire will last us 6-8 hours of racing on hot Texas tracks. Another racer, using this same set-up, got first place overall last year! Can't go wrong with this one!
Great Tires, Better for the track than the street

Simple as that, they are very soft rubber, warm up fast, stick well. Not so great for dispersing water, tires are already significantly worn after 1000 miles.
Great track tire, piss poor street tire

These work great on the track, they warm up quickly and grip exceptionally well. 2-3 track days which equates to about 250-300 miles and the right sides are completely done. (Stock 600cc bike~20 turns 1.1 miles) On the street, I was able to ride the rear for another 560 miles before it was square and past the wear bars. I have no idea how anyone can claim they got 5000 miles out of these, they must have added a ZERO, or been riding in the slowwww group on a 250. This is not a rain tire!
Awesome track day tire...Gixxer 1000

Awesome track day tire, excellent dry traction, do not require tire warmers. I will buy these tires again and again. Have never tried them in wet conditions. Last set I got 5/6 track days out of them. Awesome price at Superstore!!

When I bought my R6 it had the Michelin Power Pure 2ct's front and rear and I just got these installed on front and rear and went and hit HWY28 for a minute and didnt even scrub these or let them warm up and it was night and day difference. The profile of these tires make them just fall into the corners, these corner with no effort and immediatley I was gettin alot more lean angle and was gettin a knee down barely leaning off. They didnt slip one time and I have 10 times the confindence.

This is my second set...I would say all in all the tire is awesome...tread life is typical. 3500 miles. however all the other benefits you receive. I would recommend them to anyone.

I have ridden a K6 GSXR 1000 in A group at track days since 2004 with several groups at different tracks (Barber, Virginia Intl Raceway, Carolina Motorsports Park, Summit Point Raceway, New Jersey Motorsports Park) and I've used this tire at them all with no issues other than the tire predictably going off at the end of the day. Are there better "race " tires out there, sure, but for the price and tread life as well as grip you won’t find a better tire in this price range
