MICHELIN Pilot Sport
The Pilot Sports is a motorbike tyre that is frequently recommended by many bike enthusiasts. The Pilot Sports have been described as sport tyres which give you everyday use. These tyres offer the accuracy of a racing tyre coupled with the high levels of control that you would expect from a road tyre. The Pilot Sports have less feel than Avons, however, they make up for this by giving you a smoother ride. Some riders have noticed that they do not benefit from a dual compound and thus have a tendency to flat-spot occasionally. These tyres have fantastic longevity and wear but in terms of grip, the Pilot Sports don’t inspire as much confidence as some of the other brands.
