Notes: I didn't really do much really wet tarmac on this tyre. The little I did it felt and gripped fine without pushing it. There is a line around the tyre on the sides where there is no traed knobs coverage, so that looks like you could run out of rubber on tarmac in the wet but I can't say with so little rain riding done on it. Might have more stars if I knew it could do it.

Notes: Good confidence and cornering ability, lacks a bit of straight line drive off the corners. But very good in general.

General

What bike was used for this review? KTM 990 Adventure

Tyre Life

Riding styleTyre lifePrice per km
Aggressive riding 5,500 km 2.2 cents per km
Notes: 2mm left in centre when changed as too little drive available. Only has 10mm to start with, if they had more depth they would be even better value.

General Overview

Notes: For the really cheap price it performs very well in most areas. Centre of tyre just gets used up to quick compared with the edges, but it's on a 990 so torque abuses the tyres. I happily run 25psi on gravel and on the road where I could not inflate to get more mileage from it.
End of life pic, centre nearly gone but sides un-touched. Still corners well on tarmac and gravel just lacks drive now.
