    I have ridden pure slicks that had more cornering traction on dirt.

    I wonder why they're so bad. I've never used them, but the tread pattern looks like it'd be good for hardpack. What's your theory Shiggy?

    I really do not know. They were designed to be a loose/wet condition tread. Just no grip when leaned.
