Excellent all round tire This is my second purchase of this tire for the same bike and I will buy it over and over again! This tire is way above the mark for the money. It offers extremely good front end feel and feedback that is easily decipherable. It holds the line you pick, like it is on a rail. There is no wandering with this tire, it is completely solid. It also allows on the spot line corrections with no drama whatsoever. Deflection is also a non issue with this tire, riding curvy mountain back roads for my daily commute, I routinely encounter gravel, sticks, leaves and the occasional, unfortunate critter that is now a lot thinner. Of all the times these encounters were unavoidable full contact, the tire came through with flying colors leaving absolutely no reason for any pucker factor. Wet traction is as good as any other front tire I have spooned on. I of course decrease speed and lean angle when riding in the rain so it is not like I push it just to see if I can find the limit. As for wear, it is not a high mileage bun for sure but it seems to last as long if not a bit longer than your higher priced boutique stickies. The only negative thing I can say about the Podium is that they evidently no longer offer it in my rear size. The rear tire is just as excellent as the front. You just can't go wrong with the Podium, whether you are a new rider or a moderately aggressive rider. You will love this tire and I (would if I could) guarantee it!!!! P.S. Revzilla Customer service is totally AWESOME!!!!!!! June 25, 2015

Awesome. I had one of these on my 01 Buell and never had any traction problems even with all the torque. Snapped two belts never slipped the tire once. Great price. June 5, 2014
Great tire for the price I purchased this tire solely based on price, I had read other reviews saying it didn't have great traction so was hesitant, after getting the tire installed of have to say in my circumstances it is a great performing tire! Although a little slow to heat up. No slipping, great wet traction and tread life is decent. If you're unsure about this tire, don't be . It's well worth it! May 12, 2014
