Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa Front Tires The Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa Tires are the most versatile hypersport tire for road and track use. The profile and structure make it a reference point in the segment thanks to the excellent support ensured in inclination and rapid realignment coming out of bends. Made with the most modern EPT design technologies developed in the WSBK ensuring maximum grip on road and racetrack. Based on latest feedback from WSBK Riders, the front tire compound guarantees maximum support under heavy braking and corner exit. This concept of 'high grip with high stiffness' was maintained by combining compounding tools (dedicated reinforced carbon black and resins) which increase tread life and wet safety. The result of this development is a compound with both a racing and street soul. Diablo Rosso Corsa Tires offer a new way to measure tire performance evaluating the ability to transfer the bike's power to the ground and expressing this as horsepower available on the ground. Thanks to the use of data acquisition equipment normally used for Superbike applications, Pirelli was able to measure the necessary parameters accurately to calculate the power transferred to the ground by the bike and hence by the tires. The results showed that, coming out of the turn, at the moment the bike is at maximum acceleration, DIABLO ROSSO Corsa is able to transfer at least an additional 10 HP to the ground in comparison to the other tires tested. The increased power transferred from the bike to the ground thanks to the new DIABLO ROSSO Corsa means faster acceleration coming out of turns, higher speeds in straight areas, and above all, faster lap times. Features Three zone ultra high performance tires Delivers track performance on and off the track Positioning of grooves optimized for use on road and racetrack Profiles and structures set the new benchmark of the segment ensuring high support while leaning and fast stand up while accelerating out of the corner Pirelli patented EPT (Enhanced Patch Technology) optimizes the contact patch for the best grip on the road and on the track By adopting Enhanced Patch Technology (EPT), DIABLO ROSSO Corsa ensures quick warm-up and a consistent hi-performance level lap after lap together with excellent performance recovery after stop go Pure racetrack performance combined with the comfort and predictability you expect from a high-performance street tire World Superbike development technology improves structure and compounding Continues with the aggressive Rosso tread design W speed rating for speeds of 168+ mph

Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa Rear Tires The Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa Tires are the most versatile hypersport tire for road and track use. The profile and structure make it a reference point in the segment thanks to the excellent support ensured in inclination and rapid realignment coming out of bends. Made with the most modern EPT design technologies developed in the WSBK ensuring maximum grip on road and racetrack. Three zone compound on rear represents the ideal way to offer the best performance where required in very different conditions (racetrack and road). The differentiated compounds between shoulders and centre zone are the winning solutions engineered to give to DIABLO ROSSO Corsa racing performance on racetrack and long lasting durability on road. High mileage is guaranteed by materials with high mechanical resistance in the central zone, while the high hysteresis shoulder compound gives steady grip response and incredible traction even at high lean angle.

when replacing for the first time i struggled to get the second side of the visor to sit properly. the tear off points are visible when you first put the helmet on, once you start riding it is easy to look past them. i appreciated the pack of free tear offs with my purchase!

this helmet turns heads. you want the cute girlies staring at you when you are sitting at a stop light?! buy this helmet, when you wear it you literally start to reek of testosterone you look so good. this is a great helmet to ride in, great aerodynamics! a little pricy but how much is your head worth to you?
Yes, I recommend this product.
