Default Re: Slick vs Semi-Slick

Surely though when you corner in the wet you have greater grip with a semi than a full slick, they are proven to disipate water better, giving you greater grip. Just think about it though, it doesn't need proven maths to show positive results. Increased surface pressure though a smaller surface area will cut to the tarmac better than a wide footprint that a slick has.

Not only this but they stop as much rooster trail spraying up your rear end getting you wet because the water doesn't just leave contact at the centre of the tyre.
