I had a 2CT and it lasted 9km, and I did alot of riding on it, it held on v. well untill the end, when it ended in smoke.

I run powers front and rear and love them, warm up so quick, knee down action non stop and handle hard braking really well too.

They are decent street tires but towards the end of their life they get really greasy. Also be aware these tires will let go without warning especially on the exits of corners as you are moving onto the harder compound.

Took my 2ct's to the track monday. Let me tell you...AWSOME!!! Only bad thing on them is the 'cold tare' on the middle. They don't heat evenly...due to the dule compound. Now, I slipped twice, but like they say, if your not sliding in the corners, your not going fast enough lol...j/k!!!!

They held up great and man are they all cheesed up. I can post pix 8)

2ct's for my R6...
