Road 5 & Angel GT II

Excited to see these tires as they are yet another leap forward for traction when the roads are wet, last a reasonable time and offer sport bike grip.

Too soon for any comparison tests, but they will come. Right now I only see the Angel GT II available at Revzilla.

I'm really interested to try the new Angel GT design. I've had good luck with the tires but my tendency towards long trips and my liberal use of the throttle still means I eat up the rear in about 5 - 8k depending on conditions (who knew that 90+ F temps and 85-95mph cruising speeds would wear a tire?)

Right now I have an angel on the back with 5k on it and a Rosso III on the front at the angel up there finally was done with almost 9k.

Same affliction. I don't really have speed limits where I live. I average near triple digits if traffic permits. I've never gotten more than 4K out of a rear, even with dual-compound. I'm hoping my new PR5's can brake that mold. The uneven wear of front vs. rear pisses me off more than the mileage.

I'm more bothered by wearing down the center before I've hit the wear bars on the edges with the rear. I already bias my road trips towards winding back roads but I like going places and invariably end up slabbing or riding otherwise straight-ish roads (which is when the high speed cruising comes into play). I actually did the opposite on the front, I was well past the wear bars on the sides with a decent amount of life left in the center. Thinking at least in the front the Rosso III will wear more evenly.

Im on my 3rd or 4th set of Angel GTs. I tend to only weekend in the twistys and the occasional trip to work. On the last 2 sets I have been wearing the sides up way before the middle. It took me awhile to notice these things never get any heat in them unless its a really hot day. And there is no feedback from them, they always seem to grip fine in the corners but I never get any feedback to reassure me. I love the life I get out of them but I will be going back to a more sports type on my next set looking for that stickiness in the corners.

Im considering the Angel GT's, and now also the GT II's. Old Shinko 705's are awful. I want very fun and very well handling. Tire life is less important. Of course touring as well. Will I be fulfilled with the GT's or do I need sportbike tires?

I've heard really great things about the Road 5.

I tried the Angel GT's and really didn't like them at all. I wonder how the version 2 will be.

Scorpion Trail II's, Angel GT II's, or Diablo Rosso III?

They're good. Hard to say how good because my local roads are so scary I don't get to hoon it like I used to in the states. I'll say with DTC off, it will come out of a slip and launch the front on some roads that used to just spin away on my PR3's. As far as wet traction, I always had great confidence in the rain on all my tires, which I mostly attribute to overall bike stability.

Real test of PR5's will be wear. This is what I hope to gain the most.
