General Overview

Notes: Original tyres for 2014 690 Enduro. The on road performance is very good, giving me the confidence to really throw the bike into corners. They give a smooth ride, and do not send vibrations back through the handlebars. They offer good traction and braking performance in the wet.

As an added bonus, they are also almost oblivious to grit on the road. It was not uncommon to finish a ride with my riding buddies (all on road bikes) cursing the grit, and me querying where?

However they are not suitable off road in greasy conditions let alone mud. OK on lightly gravelled shingle, but all over the road in heavy shingle. Certainly would not willing to do 100kph+ on shingle with these ones.
Photo at 1998 kms. Started life being ridden easily as I was breaking in bike, but it then was ridden more aggressively :-)
