I live in the Seattle area and am on my 3rd rear and 2nd front. I have never had a problem with them in the wet, and I do manage to do a fair of that type of riding around here.


Ride every day, it's good for you.

No terrible issues in the wet here either and I've run through a crapload of em on several different bikes and like the above post,,,,, I ride quite a bit in the rain just because I commute on the bike everyday. They might not be the grippiest in the wet but dang, just looking at the tread design should sorta give ya a hint that they might not be Pilot Powers and they just might vibrate and rumble a bit at low speeds.

Look good

I just installed a set of the 705's on my wee and they look hot! I look forward to riding them, although I think I might sell the bike soon.
