    My blades shoes are getting tired, and i need to start looking for new ones.

    I do 10-15 trackdays a year, nothing super fast, usually in the intermediate group. Also use my bike for work on nice days, not much wet riding.

    Was thinking about the supercorsa sp, or maybe battlax rs10. Any thoughts?

    I've got Bridgestone s20 evo on mine, can't fault them at all, seem grip well from the get go and not had any issues with spinning or loss of traction at all. Can't comment on how long they last but from review's I found when looking wether or not to change them they seem to be well thought of. They've got the harder compound centres to so hopefully won't square off

    Is this a wind up ? If you do 10 - 15 trackdays a year then you'd of been changing your tyres at least 2 or 3 times in that period

    Cant fault the Metzeler interact k3, there is also a newer Racetec RR.

    Mileage isnt great though, a rear would get you through 2 maybes 3 trackdays at a push.

    Supercorsa SP are a great road/track tyre load of grip and reasonable life, or SC if you want megga grip but less life?
    I have used the Dunlop D212pro on road and track also, again mega grip but short life, both crap in winter though lol

    How long does the Supercorsa SP last then?

    Why are you selling them so quickly?

    I get 1800 miles from the supercorsa SP on the road . They wear as a pair both need changing together.

    There's nothing like new rubber, so I started the new year with new tyres a couple of weeks ago when i did my first track day of the year. I've now booked my 2nd for May 9th.
    I was tempted to put them on my road bike, but my PR4's are probably better suited to a road only bike.

    try new s21 they will give you good milage and decent grip
    I had rosso corsa and did 5 track days and last track day was not great as tyres could not deal with gas on or breaking hard bike felt weird I would change tyres after 4 track day most if not 3 really

    also new tyre just came out from Michelin rs they seem to be good

    super corsa and racetech are great tyres and can be used without tyre warmers etc but the miles are pretty crapo s21 you can get around 4.000 miles I commute 40 miles a day
