PIRELLI Angel™ GT II

The latest Model in the Angel Tire Series, previously "ST", then "GT" and now the "GT II".

https://www.pirelli.com/tyres/en-ww/...et/angel-gt-ii

Not sure when they'll be available here in the USA...hopefully in time for 2019 Riding Season.

The twin Parallel Grooves look nice. Might address the complaints about not being able to foretell when they're near wearout?

I began using Angel STs, moved onto the GTs and hope to try these GT IIs soon.

Re: PIRELLI Angel™ GT II

I like the GT’s and will definitely make these my next set of tires when they come out. Could be some deals to be had on the current GTs when these are released.

Re: PIRELLI Angel™ GT II

I mentioned in the Michelin GT-5 thread elsewhere, that I am on my second rear Angel GT (a new front is in the garage.) Like K13M, I just mounted a new rear Angel GT to my Triumph Sprint ST. These new ones look interesting. After a long weekend of chasing CJS350 out to Death Valley and back on "cheese grater" roads in the desert, I am well on my way to needing another! LOL. I will definitely consider the Angel GT-II's.

(For what it's worth: I live in Oklahoma with lots of straight roads; I give an edge to tires with some wet weather worthiness; I like pushing it in the mountains several times a year, but don't need "maximum" roadracer type grip; and I am a bit "price sensitive.")

Re: PIRELLI Angel™ GT II

Looking forward to wear reports from early adopters!


Love my Angel GTs and wouldn't switch without a reason.


Revzilla and Bike Bandit say they're in stock. Quite a bit more expensive, both list price and sale price.

Re: PIRELLI Angel™ GT II

I hope they are affordable, or it wouldn't make any difference to buy them for increased mileage. And increased mileage is the only thing I can see much improved. Would be nice to get another 1000 miles out of a rear.
