I went with Bridgestone s16 hyper sport pros. Used them on the track and road and have been great from the moment fitted.

Re: Tires

Michelin Power RS. Iíve used the Dunlop Q3 for years and loved it. My track times were great and canyon rides were fun and confident. Until I tried the power Rs. The soft carcass of the Michelin gives your premium corner entry feel and confidence far superior to the Hard carcass Q3+. The Q3 will tend to get a greasy feeling when it reaches max temperatures which some trick riders like to use to their advantage. I donít feel this with the power rs. The q3 tends to wander into a corner where as the RS will conform to the entry angle and grip your line immediately. The final thing I will address is the skill required to use each time, the Dunlop has a slightly higher learning curve where as he power rs is very forgiving. Itís longevity seem similar with both.
