Reviews & Questions
I was both curious and a little skeptical of the unique looking tread on the Anakee 3's. Like many comments I had read, I didn't think the 3's would do that well off the pavement. I had been planning on trying a set of Anakee 2's, Having put 38,000 + miles on my 1200 GS, on another brand. (BTW I have been happy with my other tires, just wanted to see if I could find something better). I watched a couple of videos on the Anakee 3's and decided to give them a try.
New tires almost always feel great when you are coming off a set with 7 - 9 thousand miles on them. So how these feel down the road will tell the tale. I live in the Sacramento Mountains in south central New Mexico. So I am fortunate to have miles of twistys and sweepers on pavement, and lots of dirt logging roads, and gravel to ride. I have to ride 2 miles on a "marble like gravel road" just to get to pavement from my house. I went out by myself the first day and put 168 miles on them. As part of the ride, I rode up and down the 12 mile road up to the Sierra Blanca Ski area twice -6800 ft elev. to 10,500 ft elev. It is full of tight twistys, 180's and blind corners. With each trip up and down, as the tires got scrubbed in, I started hitting the corners harder and faster .. the tires felt better and better. I was really impressed with their grip.
I had 200 miles on them by the weekend. Since I had them roughed in and the "new tire slickness" gone, I felt confident enough with them to take my girlfriend out for a ride. The 3's did great. In fact the first long up hill (It is 1 1/8 mile) twisty and curvy the whole way) I startled her .. not intentionally. I have never tried to scare a passenger. I went into one corner leaning more than I ever had with her. Since we ride these roads a lot she is very familiar with that stretch of hiway. When we stopped for fuel, she said "Wow! thought you were trying to scrape your pegs! You have never leaned us so far over like that !!"
I always ride pretty conservatively with a passenger. The fact that these Anakee 3's grip so well, allowed me to ride a little more assertively with her. We rode 221 miles that day, accompanied by one of my riding buddies. Very happy with these tires. As I said earlier, the miles will tell When I have 6,000+ miles on them i will let you know how they have performed. I'm attaching a couple of photos. One of us coming down a rocky road riding 2 up. The tires never slipped once, I came down sitting on the saddle, rather than standing on the pegs because they gripped so well. The other is from a ride in the Capitan Mtns on a 29 mile ride. They were great on that ride also had 2 short water crossings, some soft sand (not deep) Have not been in rain yet so can't say anything about wet traction on pavement.
On-road, they corner magnificently and handle securely in wet conditions. They are smooth and I have gained significant confidence in these tires.
Off-road, they certainly handle mundane conditions such as dirt roads and two-tracks. The only time I have had issues was with very muddy, slick conditions I encountered in a 20 mile stretch. Other riders had TKC-80 type tires and had an easier time. I never went down; however, I was completely drained at the end of that experience. To be fair, though, everyone was uncomfortable (but none of the others could believe I made it through on street tires.)
As I said, I have put 8,000 miles on the tires and just bought a new pair. The wear was not significant; however, I had in my mind that this would be the mileage where I would replace them. I am very pleased that I am replacing them while they still have significant tread life. Great tire.
I have a 2012 650 Vstrom, Purchased in late Feb 2013 and have logged 11K miles thus far in preparation for a cross country journey. Bought these tires at 3K miles to replace the stock Bridgestones, which never felt quite confident underneath.
Here in NC, I've had plenty of mountain twisty rides, wet rides and a fair amount of off road dirt miles on these tires, with confidence abound.
Today, took it over the top (hence the review). At 8K miles on these puppies, I was off road in one of our National Forests in NC. It was a great road, which was taking me towards a deep water put in for kayakers. As I neared the trail's end, I should have paid a bit more respect to the last road sign.." Road Maintenance Ends Here".
Following a 4X4 with hefty suspension, I make my way towards the water.. and the grade starting to go down, down, down hill.. and the ruts got very deep, like whoops on a motocross course. Prior rain, also added some mud in the deep sections.
All I am thinking is: will my ABS screw me over and make me race towards the water for a big bath and "How am I going to get back up?"
Well the ABS hung in there somehow, yet getting back up was not going to be without those muddy ruts getting the best of me... a fall to the side in the middle of one deep rut had me a bit stranded. I had a kayaker give me a hand in uprighting and stabilizing the bike while I got my muddy self back in the saddle. Clutch, throttle, man diaper and some forward momentum, these Anakee 3's carried me right back up this precarious monster. Once safely at the top, found a place to dismount bike, calm the nerves and pay some serious respect to my bike and the tires which totally exceeded my expectations.
Anakee 3's ROCK!!
The problem arises off road. The tires aren't well suited to gravel and mud. It was so bad that I decided to swap them out for a set of Heidenau K60 Scouts. Now I have reasonable (but not great) on road handling and significantly better off road handling.
The Pirelli were absolutely horrible, I've lost the front wheel many times in low speed turns, they did not inspire confidence at all on the wet and going off-road would have been suicidal.
The Anakee 3 are a huge change from those awful stock tires, on all scores!
The grip is excellent, they warm up very quickly (i live in a hot country though) and they never ever made me lose confidence.
Lean angle, agility and stability are excellent. They are not too noisy nor vibrate (Both wheels have been balanced). I read it was an issue for some but honestly there is nothing to complain about and I am very sensitive to noises.
Another thing that surprised me is the improvement on braking and the later intervention of the ABS (on dry), compared to the Scorpion Trails.
Wet traction is good (for my riding type on wet roads), I never tried to push them to the limit, but I've never been surprised either! I live in the Caribbean and the rainfall is intense and daily, their wet performance was an absolute must for me and I am very satisfied in that regard.
I only did mild off-roading on good dirt roads at mid speeds so far, I can't really tell how they would behave in mud or heavy off-roading.
I would recommend those tires to anyone with a big dual-sport bike doing 90/10 on-road/off-road and looking for an awesome grip in all conditions, on asphalt and good dirt roads.
I initially didn't like their design that much compared to the Anakee 2, but now that i see them on my wheels I simply love them, they look very aggressive and technical, it may sound stupid but even this design inspires confidence in how they can perform on the road.
In my 10 years of riding I've come to a never contradicted conclusion: Michelin is a manufacturer you can trust.
Thanks Revzilla for the great prices and service!
The Anakees 3's have comparatively excellent grip, both wet and dry, and on a 1,200 mile trip through the Arkansas twisties, my confidence was restored, to the point that my boot soles now have a nice bevel, and the tires are wearing fine, with plenty of tread left.
The only con I have with these is that they have a shallower profile, so that transitioning between left-right-left quick sharp turns takes more effort than the OEMs. The bike is no longer as flickable as it once was #such that a 600-lb ADV bike can be considered "flickable"), so there is a little more planning involved in setting up multiple tight turns, but the excellent grip of the Anakee 3's is a fine tradeoff, one which I'll happily live with.
With that said, I would recommend this tyre for street biased riding.
