Good for all weather

lgomgf - July 30, 2021

Just fitted brand new before going to the Nordkapp in Norway and after riding 8k kilometers on my Super Duke GT I'm coming home happy and will fit new ones again. On my bike lasted as mentioned above only 8000km. But survived torrential summer rain, 8 degrees wet roads and 35 degrees sunny days without a problem.

Got these fitted from new and don't regret it at all. Only issue is during "Spirited cornering" can and has spun a few time so warm them up alot first. Wet they are brilliant as well as dry. 4 out of 5 my assessment.
