Impressive grip

Big Carlo - April 12, 2021

Bought a GS 1250 that came with new trail 5's. Been down to Rome with the wife on the back and full luggage along with some hard road riding by myself over the winter and wetter days never had any issues in the wet or dry. The rear lasted about 4k miles which I thought was really good, only on the last ride where I went out with a pal in his car going some questionable speeds down some good roads did I notice a drop off in performance. Looked at the tyre and realised it now needs changing. Over all a great tyre I actually think its much better than the power 5's that are on my 2020 R1 I find them to slide about and limit your ability on the road

Aitch - March 23, 2021

I fitted these tyres to my 650 V Strom for my trip to Grenoble and had the best time riding with 3 friends on there GS 1250s and a friend on his MT 900 tracer and feel I took the tyres, if not to there limits, definitely to mine, keeping up and going ahead in the twisties. I am just about to fit them to my XT1200 as I ride mostly road
