Mounted today so I can't tell Too much. First impressions are positive, really steady.

In the next days I'll try to do more. I'm coming from conti sport attack (7500 km)

I also have Pirelli Angel, I think they are real good! Have had them for over 5000 km now, and their are a lot left for them to go!
They work in both wet and dry. But I don't have so much to compare with, going to test the pr3 next time.
SMT mods - LeoVince cans, 16t front sprocket, SM-Heatsheilds, re-mapped, sport suspension, belly pan, Bi-xenon HID headlight. So Far!

I made some km with those tyres and I can say that are really good.
They are really stiff and precise in getting into the corners. I like it.

I feel a little more 'slippy' than the sportAttack, but I think this is due to different temperatures (in Italy temps have dropped about 10°C in the last week).

I'll update when I'll try on the wet

Today it was raining around the Garda Lake, so I tested the tyres with wet ground.

I love them.
After a not short warm Up period, they really vive you a nice feeling. I'm not a race guy, but I got fun, this morning :)

I’ve just fitted Pirelli Angel ST tyres to my SMT. My previous tyres were PR3 and oem Conti Attacks.
I like the tread pattern of the Angel, overall the tyre has a more sporty look than the PR3. It is also a cheaper tyre to purchase in Aust.
I can’t comment on the performance so far, I’ve only done 600klm. I’m interested to see how good the tyre is once it has reached the second half of its life. As mentioned in the PR3 posts, I found the dual compound tyre to be a little off putting when getting worn.
Also curious to see what milage I get. I got around 10k on the PR3. Even though it still had some tread left in the centre, it was spinning and sliding a lot.

I also fitted pirelli angel st a few days ago. I had them on my previous bikes and I love them.

I wanted to try PR3 but they were 100 EUR more than angels, 380 EUR vs 280 EUR.

How much are these tires at Aus?

I always end up paying more for the pilot roads but I get slightly more miles from them so it balances out

Hey guys,

What kind of mileage are you getting out of your ANGEL? I've got about 5000miles on the rear and it's looking pretty thin. I'm a little disappointed - had hopes for 6500miles :?

I easily got 10K out of my Angel ST tyres. They are a great sport\touring tyre and were pretty good in the wet. I would happily run the ST's on my SMT again, but for now I'm going to try the Pilot Power 3 for comparison. IMHO, I reckon the Pirelli Angel is a better looking tyre on the SMT than the PR2, PR3 and PP3.

Do people actually buy tires for how they look? That's ridiculous. lol.

No. But I won't buy a tire for how it looks. Some tread patterns are just plain ugly. :)

Haha, there probably are people out there that would buy on looks alone. I didn't mean to over emphasise on the tyre looks, just meant to say that it looks better.. sportier.. on the SMT than the PR's and PP's. But it is only my opinion.

Sure there are and looks do matter. While the primary reason most of us pick the SMT is it's broad range of performance qualities,
Looks were no small part in the decision on this aggressive looking bike.
Just look at how reluctant we all are to adding the CalSci windscreen...which I hear will fix most of our air flow issues.
I'm thinking real hard on getting one for long trips though, haha. :lol:
