Sweep Ver2 Testing
10 September 2013
Sweep Racing Version 2 tyres tested by RCF1.fr (in English) and the results are positive.
Sweep have introduced their version 2 tyres. They are clearly marked "v2" on the label.
Our friends at RCF1.fr originally produced a French testing video and they have now made an English version.
In summary 3 brands of tyres were run on an outdoor asphalt track with air temperature of 25-30 C (77-86 Fahrenheit) and track temp of 50-55 degrees C (122-130 F). That's a hot track and we'd be running Ride R1's with those temps.
The Sweep v2 Medium Rears with Medium Fronts are reported to work well in these conditions.
In the video the first 10 minutes shows the actual testing with English text over French commentary. At approximately 10m 20s into the video the debrief explains the results in English.
