The Racetec k3 is super sticky!!!!! And it has a very good bumb absorption.

This is a awesome dry weather tire. I actually did a full track day in Houston with 3500 miles accumulated on the tires and had no grip issues at all. As for riding in the rain I had to keep the bike in rain mode to limit wheel spin

These tires are just as good if not better than pirelli supercorsas. Serious grip and super stable at full lean, hard braking, trail braking, and corner exit. If you like the pirellis but want a firmer front tire carcass these are the way to go.

Excellent all around tire. Tread life isn't great, but sport bikes are race machines not commuters. I did get caught in the rain once though, so I played around a little. The back tire started coming up under heavy before the ABS tried to intervene on the front.
Awesome for grip

Just went from Continental Sport Attack to these, in K3 hardness. Absolutely amazing. They warm up very quickly, keep a lot of heat even at moderate speeds on the road. Cornering is progressive and stable. Fraying the edges and I didn't even realize it. Definitely more grip than the Contis. I suspect they'll only put up with 1-2 track days, but since the only thing between me and the road is this tire, faster wear is worth the grip.
Never ride in the rain, so no idea of wet grip.

Great track day at Infineon on my BMW S1000RR. I was very confident on the K3's. They never stepped out and provided fantastic traction out of the corners. Will buy them again.

This has the best traction and feedback, especially over rough pavement.

This tire is outstanding on dry pavement. Riding my S 1000 RR aggressively on the street, I am very confident that this tire, same as the OE tire, will do what I ask of it.

Incredible grip right from the first turn on these. You can just about keep full throttle on turn six at thunderhill without any drama. Kudos to the maker of these puppies for bringing this level of performance to the punters out there.

Wow what an amazing tire this stuff just rails thru the turns without even flinching one bit. Durability second to none. Try one and believe .
