At the first sight, PHANTOM™ SPORTSCOMP RS tread design recalls to the memory the old glory of Pirelli PHANTOM™.
For a closer look, the differences immediately spring to mind: the PHANTOM™ SPORTSCOMP RS stands out from the previous version for the less aggressive and a smoother tread pattern design, differentiated for front and rear tyre.

PHANTOM™ SPORTSCOMP RS features race-oriented profiles derived by Pirelli Superbike technology.
In order to better suit the modern needs of track riding, Pirelli adopted design and manufacturing technologies, which aim to obtain a sharper profile: footprint varies by lean angle. The result is great handling coupled with a broad ledge for lateral grip.
Only the 0° radial structure with 90° Rayon plies ensures the right stiffness distribution form shoulder to crown, granting and at the same time high speed stability.
Thanks to the combined design of front and rear tyre profiles, PHANTOM™ SPORTSCOMPS RS enables improved precision and feeling throughout the whole cornering process:

• Easier corner approach
• Enhanced line holding
• Improved potential for greater acceleration on corner exit.
