BSB: Pirelli introduces new front slick

After a dramatic final round in 2017 saw a three-way battle and Shane Byrne claim his sixth British Superbike Championship title, this season’s competition is getting under way at Donington Park this weekend. Pirelli will be there too, supplying the massive Superbike and support class field for an eleventh consecutive season.

 

The 2018 season will be contested over 12 rounds, ten hosted in England, one each in Scotland and one at the very un-British TT Circuit Assen in the Netherlands. Pirelli will bring a total of 4,000 slick, treaded and wet weather tyres to each of these events.

 

Riders in the Superbike class will continue to have the option of four customer range Pirelli Diablo Superbike Slick tyres that were originally developed in the World Superbike series. For 2018 a new front tyre option has been introduced, with a specification which sits in between the existing SC1 and SC2 options and was the most widely used option in the 2017 World Superbike series. The tyre uses the same compound as the softer SC1 but utilises a different structure to improve stability under heavy braking. Utilised in pre-season testing, Pirelli reports it has been well received by riders.
