Pirelli Angel
« on: February 08, 2014, 05:41:53 pm »
Im currently riding on Pirelli Angel ST tyres. Im under the impression the ST stands for Sport Touring? Triumph recommend these as OE. Pirelli do a GT version of the Angel but Triumph have not tested these and will not recomend them. Is anyone using the GT version and can you tell me if they are any good.

I replaced the stock ST with  GT when I got a puncture last year... Harder compound but seems to be lasting very well and still giving me all the stick I need.. Have not felt wrong footed yet even in rain, gravelly roads and one farm track in North Italy!!!

I've got 5k on the ST's with about another 4 or 5 left on them.  The're cheaper than the GT series in the US, I will probably stay with them.  Good stick and they seem to last.

I was under the impression the GT replaced the ST and I have never heard that Triumph do not recommend them.

As my bike is now back from the factory it is also having fitted new Gts to replace the worn Sts.

Cannt pick up the bike until I return home. I had no problems with the STs and just kept to the upgraded GTs

Hello,

have you mounted the recommended specification "A" for heavy duty motorcycles  :164: or the standard ones?

Cheers,
