dont make the mistake of dismissing these

had my '03 xb9s since '07...2k miles on. it needed new tires immediately so i bought a set of podiums. been running podiums and stealths since. recently i bought dunlop sportmax Q3....terrible! i feel like i'm riding on gravel the entire time. can't get comfortable on them. just ordered more podiums , cant wait to get back on the ragged edge!!!

sticky

No comparison with the Dunlop's I usually run. This in conjunction with the Shinko Raven I put on the back, makes cornering a thought process instead of a physical chore. I know they will not last as long, but would rather my tires grab the road, instead of just skimming the surface. Installed on a Buell Cyclone.

great tires

I've had the same on my Hayabusa 1300 GSXR since I bought it. They handle just as great wet or dry, especially when cornering. Never been more confident on controlling my bike with these tires and for the price, can't beat them. When my tires wear down I will be ordering another set.

Great for BMW R1100RT

I have selected this tire along with the Podium 006 for the rear on my RT. Great traction and easily builds your cornering confidence. Slightly twitchy in the wet when being pushed. I brake 95% on the front only and therefore I use up my front reasonably quickly. Tire replaced when it had 7,500 miles on her due to me selling the bike and she whole have given a further 2000 miles easily.

2010 NINJA 250 YAKYAS

Purchased this tire in August of 2013. I put about 100 miles on it each day, 5 days a week. Its tread is still looking pretty good and during the wet season last year I didnt have any issues that stand out. Great product, great fit and great price!

Decent Tire

Bought for an FZR600. Traction is good, seems to be wearing a little quicker than I would like, but not bad. Can't vouch for Wet as I haven't ridden in the rain.

Good tire for a great price

This tire is darn good and ya can't beat the price. I use them on my CBR929rr and my CBR954rr. I am a mildly aggressive rider and it suits my needs well.

Beware

Put about 3000 on mine. Tread not that great. Also mine developed a bump. Imagine a blister on your finger. The skin is there but there's a pocket. It feels like it's a re-tread and a section developed an air pocket. Ride is 50 miles a day. 25 on smooth cement and 25 on asphalt.

dont ride wet

Don’t ride wet and tires have less than 150 miles on them so can’t testify to wet or tread life, but smoke the conti motions that came off of my bike.

Great tire so far.

I put this tire on and i cant believe the difference. First thing i noticed was how confident i felt of the grip when i cornered fast. The bike just falls into every corner every way you want it too. Cant rate on the wet traction or tread life but so far a great product, and for the money you cant beat it.

Good Tire, No problems

I bought a front tire for my daughter's bike and she hasn't had any problems with it, even on wet roads.
