I've had the Black Panthers for about 4 rides now (100 miles, 2.6 X 2.35). They are great tires going up because of their low rolling resistance and weight, BUT they don't appear to have very good cornering traction, especially on off-cambered turns (current conditions are muddy, loose). I low-sided my bike twice in 30 minutes because I intuitively expected a certain grip performance but got something else instead, and I am running out of elbow and knee skin.
So, I'm wondering if the Bull Horns are better cornering tires than the Black Panthers (for front tire applications). Does anyone have experience swapping the two? Did you have a similar observation for the Black Panther not being a good cornering tire in wet, loose condition?
I would like to buy the Bull Horns but the pictures suggest just a slightly deeper knob, and I am not sure if that will buy me anything.
