Just installed Conti RA 2's ....
I got 5,000 out of the trail wings. The rear was flat in the middle and down to the wear bars on the side. Like a pyramid with a flat top. The front wore pretty weird. Good tread in center but wear bars on the side? A perfect v shape. Bike handled well but have a long trip coming up so i got the RA 2's.
Not sure about these yet...
Very rounded profile but then again, the old tires were wore to a different shape which made turn in pretty quick.
So far the RA 2's seem "lazy" ??? More effort to turn in due to different profile? I know as a tire wears, it is a gradual handling change as the shape changes etc.
they seem to stick real well, track good, but just seem to be a little lazy on the flickable end... will see about mileage.
