mostly country roads
Better suited to track use and hot summer days be careful to warm up because the difference from cold to warm is severe and they do take a time to work once warm they are brilliant with good feedback .but if it's a cold day forget it they give no warning. But if the sun is shining enjoy
Rode these tyres only on track, and they were the best tyres i have ever ridden on track. Used Michelin 2CT, Supersports Evo's and BT S20's, they just feel like planted accelerating out of the bend on lean angle. The wear on the sides is a bit troublesome, have used the tyres for 3 track-days and the groves on the side are gone. Still plenty of groove on the middle patch.

wasnt a popular tyre in as people has always been accustomed to Pirelli SC but for me this tyre is the best for aggressive riders.
It perform best in hot and dry condition but also is the one that i can trust in the wet. Ridden in heavy storm on the twisted highway but i never need to speed down too much like i have been in Pirelli SC which sucks too much on the wet.
Clocked 4000km now, which i emptied 2 full tanks on the track and still the tyre is still in their 40% condition(10% track, 70% on highways, 20% on country roads). might change it after i hit 1000 or 2000km more or 1 more Sepang trackday as i can sells it as 2nd hand rather than use it up and throw away

Spent a weekend at pembrey and they were like glue they felt planted every where, but wear could be a prolem as im down to the markers after two days,but it was very hot both days, anyone with a bit of a confidence issue go buy some r10s there awesome.
Fitted for the last session of a trackday at Rockingham, replacing Pirelli Diabli Rosso Corsas. I built up speed slowly but don't think I needed to. By the end of the session I was the fastest I'd been all day. I don't think I was anywhere near their limit - I need to learn to hang off the bike a lot more for these tyres. Have been playing with the rearsets to try and help me get off the side. Looking at the wear I was right on the edge of the rear and they were absolutely planted. Felt like they had hooks on them.
They just felt good immediately. I think you'd need to be pretty good to want more in the dry.
Conditions were warm and dry. Think I was running 30F/28R and I think they are medium compound both ends.
