Riders discount supercorsa sale

They are having their usual start of the season sale on the supercorsa v2 DOT tires.
I know it's a limited use tire. Just passing along the info.
Call for their best price, it's about $10 cheaper than the website.

I think mine lasted 1000 miles and my fronts are to the wear bars. Rears are ok.

They are great street tires and for many they will serve them well at the track right up to advanced pace at that pace riders typically have switched to race tires.

Re: Riders discount supercorsa sale

I spooned the front tire on last week. I'm getting pretty good at it. I would never try it on a magnesium or carbon fiber rim, but on a cast aluminum stock wheel, it's not that bad.

Something I've noticed is that the tire carcass get amazingly flexy when the wear gets down to and just past the wear bars. My wear on the fronts are most noticeable in that 1:30 to 2:15 region (if 12 oclock is the top of the tire and 3 oclock is the edge of the tire). The tire thins so much here that you can very easily deform the tire with just mild hand pressure. Compared to a brand new tire, the carcass is very flexy. You feel it on the first couple turns on cold tires, a very slight movement of the front until heat builds up and you get some stiffness back.

Brand new, I have no complaints about the tires.

Once I wear out these, I'll buy some treaded SC1's. Won't bother with the slicks until I get into advanced.

Pirelli's have soft shoulders compared to other tires. Dunlop's are much stiffer. Plus the sport tires start out not as stiff as touring tires. The more you do it the easier it gets. It really is all technique - when I first started changing tires I struggled - these days very quick and easy - well when my shoulder is not blown up.
