Maxxis Supermaxx ST
while driving a Triumph Sprint RS
Driving on mostly country roads
for 5000 spirited
This was my second st of Maxxis St. After the last set I was going to buy something more premium, but I was skint; and these only cost £130 a set..
If anything my opinion of these tyres is even better than the first set, Grip and handling at this price, or anywhere under £200 is unbeatable.
These were fitted to the review bikes at the launch of the KTM 790, and non of those hacks had anything bad to say about these tyres, despite some initial reservations. They are honestly the best tyres I have ever used in the wet that are not just purely wet focused.
They were developed with the assistance of BSB legend Chris Walker, and he did a great job.
However, they are only a single compound tyre, and they wear like buggery. My bike has just got an MOT advisory for the rear after less than 5000.
You can tell they are a soft compound by the tearing on the edges after any enthusiastic cornering ;-)
I would highly recommend these tyre if you don't do a high mileage, and ride anything under 130HP
I am going to try Avon ST, next.
