Pirelli Diablo Superbike Slick
The official tyre of the WSBK and BSB championships.
The Pirelli Diablo Superbike Slick is the most popular and well known slick tyre in the world. These tyres as 100% as used by the likes of Rea in WSBK, Brookes in BSB and Locatelli in WSS. Massive high levels of grip and performance straight out of the blocks.
New tyres in the range for 2021 include the following:
125/70R17 and 200/65R17 - the control tyre size in both BSB and WSBK. For those looking for the ULTIMATE race tyre - look no further. The new front offers more stability and control under heavy, deep corner braking. The new size rear creates a larger contact patch at a higher lean angle and interestingly the new compounds are not only offering more outright grip, but better consistency of grip through the tyres life. New compound mixes see more choice than ever before depending on the riders needs. These sizes MUST be run in pairs. Mixing them with the previous size tyres will cause set up issues with the bike.
190/60/17 - the tyre of the World Supersport Championship is now available to buy. Like its bigger brother does on a Superbike, these tyres offer grip second to no other on a Supersport bike. Pair these up with the 120/70/17 front.
A new SC3 compound is available in most of the Diablo Superbike range yet. James hasn't got his hands on any to try yet, but when he has had chance to use them, we know he will be quick to update the site and tell you all about them. The information we have received from Pirelli points to them being the PERFECT tyre for those track day riders wanting to use the latest size tyres, get exceptional grip and life whilst not sacrificing any performance. Watch this space for more information.
As in 2020, No Limits has sole access to a development tyre from 2019. The 200/60/17 SCD, in short, is an SC1 designed to protect against high heat degradation. We have found this tyre gives the grip of a standard SC1 tyre, but extends the tyre life on further from the standard SC1 tyre (the grip level lasts longer). These are in short supply (only 100 at time of publishing this listing and we have priced them to sell at just £199.99!!
A quick guide to the Superbike compounds:
On the front, the softest SC1, the slightly stronger medium SC2 and the new SC3 tyre.
On the rear, the super-soft SC0, soft SC1, Medium SC2 and new SC3 tyre
All NHS (Not for Highway service) motorcycle tyres are only for pure racing and cannot be used on public roads.
Pirelli continues to stress the importance of the correct tyre pressure setting & tyre warmer strategy to achieve optimum performance and durability over full race distance. If you require help with this, please contact James in No Limits Race Support.
