Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Rear Tires Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires add two-compound technology to the already renowned Pilot Power range. While 2CT technology originated in MotoGP racing, Pilot Power 2CT tires are intended for the most demanding sportbike riders, who use their bikes both on the road and for track days. Its tread surface is divided into three separate areas, incorporating two different rubber compounds. This helps provide numerous benefits in terms of dry grip, lean angle, handling and progressive acceleration and braking on wet surfaces. Features Real Moto GP technology from the tire company that has won 15 consecutive GPWorld Championships 20 softer rubber mix on the edges of the tread yields phenomenal cornering grip Unprecedented lean angles 51.2 degrees in the dry on Michelin's test track Precise handling and feedback Lap times within 7 of Michelin Moto GP slicks when fitted on Colin Edward's Yamaha Moto GP bike at Malaysia's Sepang circuit in February 2006 Track Day tire that is equally at home on the road

I didn't purchase this tire from Revzilla, but look forward to make a big purchase for track day; thanks to their #1 service!
This set of 2cts is one of few excellent sets that offer the best riding experiences. A lot has changed since switching from the stock Dunlops; like stepping in to a different universe.
Improved handling; IMO my zx6r is much more sensitive now than before. It doesn't take much effort in fact none to lean through cornering. Increase confidence; I was always cautious before entering a corner, almost afraid that I might lose the back end. I've made some mistakes but the 2cts are somewhat forgiving because of that softer compound on the sides and they stick well. Once or twice now I was coming through a corner and suddenly had to slow down. Well, one lesson I've learned is not to slam on the brakes, so I downshifted. The 2cts slid for a "a bit" and caught grip instantly coming down from 4th to 2nd in dry conditions. As for wet conditions, I don't want to push the limit there :P However, ridden once or twice in the wet both on stock dunlops and the 2cts...60 on a corner 2ct wins.
The only downside to this or maybe not is its truly meant for cornering than straight stretches. So don't drag race smh :P as I did many times. I'm left with half maybe less tread in the middle hard compound of what is left in the shoulders (see pic).
