I bought these as a friend had them over a summer of riding, and said for a cheap tyre they were good. I got them at the end of summer, and fitted them to my Fazer 1000 commuter. Dry handling is as good as any other mileage tyre with decent feedback, but in the wet, cold winter weather, they’re not so good! The rear spins up much earlier than expected, and with very little warning. The front isn’t good on tar banding, or smooth wet tarmac. And in cold greasy conditions, I’ve had several slips and slides. Dry weather they’re ok, and wear seems to me better than most. Wet weather I’ve got no faith in them. Can’t wait to change them as I’m a 365 UK rider,!
