On the road, warm-up is quick, turn-in light-effort. When I mentioned the excellent small-bump absorption to Conicelli, his eyes lit up. "I'm glad you noticed that," he beamed. Mid-corner and high-speed (at times, very high speed) stability are top-tier, as well. Furthermore, the tire doesn't want to fall into corners or stand up while braking. Even when trail braking on different machines, I was able to continue steering into the corner without exerting additional muscle. IRP works.
