First 500 miles on RoadSmart3
Replaced the Metzeler Roadtec01 HWM after some mixed experience with the Dunlop RoadSmart 3
Very quiet operation
A little harder turn in compared to the Metzeler
Very stable in fast sweepers
Quickly reached maximum lean angle without any pucker factor
Excellent high speed stability up to the limiter at some 140 mph
Tracks very well on bad road surfaces and takes tar snakes much better than anything I had before
Very stable under hard braking
No difference to the Metzeler in the rain
I trusted the tire after a few miles to a degree I never got to with the Metzeler. Not ideal tire for canyon carvers, but for me an excellent all around choice.
If I get 5000 miles out of the rear I am satisfied. Front tire has still the little rubber thingies (how do you call them actually). Surprising if I consider the riding style......
