UPDATE: Sorry for the delay, weather has been shite, then double demerits, so I haven't taken the time to go out for a hard ride. Ended up going out last night for some Isle of Man TT do it yourself racing with some mates.
In short, they're f*cking fantastic.
They heat up incredible fast and offer great grip straight out of the gates. To quote Baron, the front is inspirational. I know a couple corners where at full lean there are some ripples where I've had the RS10's and Rosso II's wash out the front on me before, but these stuck true. I thought I must have been going slower since the front didn't push, but checking back on my camera, nope, roughly same speed and lean as last time.
I turned the TC to 5 and power to Low and then Medium to see if I could get the traction kicking in, but the rear never decided to slip. Haven't done a really hard drive on Full with TC 1 so can't comment there.
They feel a bit like a mix of the RS10's with their stability and rail like tendency, but with more input like the Pirellis. Wear so far is excellent.
Hard braking doesn't seem to upset them at all as I slammed on anchors from 260kph down to 60kph, and then 160kph to a dead stop. No squirreling.
Been caught in a few storms too, and I've got plenty of confidence with them in wet conditions.
Currently, I am completely satisfied with them as far as road going tyres go.
I'll definitely be buying another set, and would highly recommend them to anyone thinking about trying them out.
