Pirelli Introduces the Diablo Superbike PRO Tires
The new tires are available in original equipment homologated 17-inch sizes for the front: 120/70R17; and rear: 180/55R17 and 190/55R17, so there is no need to adjust geometry, swing-arm length or gearing to be able to fit them.
The PRO compound’s lower operating temperature, often encountered on the first laps on track, benefits riders with quicker tire warm-up and improved compound flexibility, reducing the tendency to cold-tear.
“This advantage comes from a compound derived by an innovative production process and the use of the latest generation polymers, a formula specifically dedicated to competition preparation and long lasting trackday riding,” a company statement reads.
Moreover, at high tire temperatures the PRO compound is characterized by a lower thermo-plasticity.
“The slick tread design avoids all potential wear triggers, specifically in colder conditions, and improves the riding feeling versus standard racing DOT tires.”
“Diablo Superbike PRO is therefore the perfect combination of a racing profile, hyper-sport structure and a new generation of long lasting compound to deliver great braking stability and precise cornering, confidence at lean angles all the way to the maximum and optimal trajectory for the highest corner exit speeds.”
