    Supermaxx Diamond Tyre Test Results

    If you’re looking for new sport-touring tyres for your motorbike and you’re not sure which to go for, you can always look to the opinions of independent experts. See below our collections of reviews from various magazines

    “The bizarre-looking ‘Diamond’ pattern on the shoulder of the tyre dishes out mindblowing wet weather skills, able to corner hard on the road in iffy conditions. It’s not supersport rubber, and although the Diamond is one of the best winter tyres available, their abilities are based on the road – or the novice track session.” – April 2014

    “Well Maxxis were bang on with their mileage claims, 6500 miles on the rear and it looks as though there is another 1000. Not bad at all for a set of tyres that cost less than £200. Having lived with the SuperMaxx Diamonds over the past few months the best thing about these tyres is the mileage range they offer vs cost. Not many of us who ride all year round can afford sticky tyres every 2000 miles…

    With regard to their grip and handling characteristics, all I can say is about 70% of UK riders would be more than satisfied with them. they grip well in the wet and can deal with full lean on a roundabout with no problem. The confidence issues start to arise when you start pushing them. By pushing them I mean trailing the front brake as you tip into a bend and gassing the rear as you exit. I’ve not had the Speed Triple sideways with the rear and never felt the front start to tuck but what I have discovered is the wriggling sensation that the Diamond tread pattern is infamous for. To be honest, with this sort of durable hard compound tyre you wouldn’t normally be able to ride other brands as hard as you can these, but that tread pattern on the sides generates more heat and therefore gives more grip than the compound would normally allow.” – Andy Stevens, Visordown, September 2011
