Just thought I was pass along some info to you guys. I took off a perfectly good Pirelli MT 16 b/c I wanted a softer terrain front, looking for a little more bite with the front end. I put on a Pirelli Scorpion Pro Front tire. The one that is DOT legal and looks like a copy of the Michelin S12 front. I figured since the tread was almost identical, it would perform close enough to what I was used to in the past. Anyway, brand new tire, 1 90 mile Enduro at Cloudcroft, NM this past Sunday and about 75% of the knobbies are chunking and all the knobs are rounded off like the tire had 4 races on it. I didn't even ride that hard, I was just trailriding. The S12's would hold up much better in the rocks. Like 10 times better. It never felt good riding on the Scorpion Pro either. I never had any confidence in the front end all day. I wouldn't use this tire again even if it was free. Pirelli makes good stuff, I've never had this happen before with any of the other Pirelli tires. In fact, the MT-16 front has been on my bike since I bought it last year and looks and performed WAY better than this new Scorpion Pro piece of crap. So I'm not against Pirelli, just this particular Scorpion Pro front. I guess it could have been a bad day at the factory in Brazil when this tire was produced, but I won't be taking another $80 chance to see if it was just a bad batch. It's junk.
