The tread pattern looks great. I need to mount a new set and would consider trying them, but I looked at SWmoto and they don't have them in stock.

I hope that they are good because the videos on the website are the greatest wank I have ever seen.
There was some extemely dramatic music being played to support the image of someone riding a bike. Hardly informative or ground breaking.
And what the F%^k is "Celestial Comfort", I think I paid for that once in Bangkok.

It does seem as if the marketing types got a bit carried away

Some of the hype is due to the guy Michele C. riding the Hyabusa 32xx miles in 24 hours (avg. 132 mph) for a world record distance/time and the tires holding up. Not mentioned in the video, but it is elsewhere if you search on their Angel ST tire.
