The com­pounds and pro­files

Motorcycle Monthly - - Pirelli -

Pirelli was the first com­pany to in­tro­duce the bi-com­pound so­lu­tion in some rear sizes of en­duro street tyres with the orig­i­nal Scorpion Trail. With the new tyre that bi-com­pound rub­ber lay-down is on all of the rear tyres in the Scorpion Trail II range.

It’s in the pro­files where the Scorpion Trail II tyres score the big­gest in terms of feel. The pro­files of the new tyres are de­rived di­rectly from those used for the An­gel GT sport tour­ing tyres.

Thanks to a shorter, wider, con­tact patch area, the pro­file helps to re­duce and level the wear of the tread, giv­ing greater mileage.
