Pirelli scorpion trail 2 review
« on: July 12, 2017, 13:05:47 »
These tyres replaced the stock tyres on my Veek once they where spent.
  Initial impressions where favourable less prone to " tramlining" on linear features  and no peculiar traits whilst having plenty of grip dry and wet.
   Things changed for the worse as they wore rapidly culminating in needing new  rear and front after about 5 k.
   The front had cupped horrendously and was like riding on a fifty pence piece whilst the rear gave the impression of falling off a ledge as you tipped in.
   In Fairness I'm a 97 kg bloke the bike was loaded with gear and it was a v spirited day up and down the Stelvio pass that saw 3 mates on  new Ktms loose there back brakes😮 I reckon this provoked the extreme cupping  but hay that's what they're for .
   I'm back on PR 4s now and feeling much happier.

Nice to know. I thought about these once my A40's are done, I'll just get pr4's.
My mate has metzeler next on this dora and his front tyre went like that too. I thought it was the weight of the triumph,  perhaps not.

Nice to know, the original Scorpions did almost exactly the same but sooner...
It's pronounced 'twenty-one-twelve'
