PIRELLI TIRE COMPOUND GUIDANCE:
The "old days" of tire compound for race tires being a simple choice of Soft, Medium, Hard, corresponding with the rubber compound being appropriate for cold, intermediate, and hot track temperatures respectively are GONE! Compound choices for the latest generation of Pirelli race tires are more wide open and subject to rider preference rather than being a simple matter of how hot the track surface will be.
There are TWO choices for Pirelli Front DOT race tires, SC1 and SC2. The SC1 tire has a softer carcass design while the SC2 has a stiffer carcass. This translates into the SC1 tire having more "feel" at the expense of hard braking stability, while the SC2 tire has greater stability with less feel on corner entry. Another way to characterize that is the SC1 tire feels more "squishy" under braking, while the SC2 feels more solid. Some riders prefer the feel of the SC1 and some prefer the SC2. Some BIKES perform better with one or the other as well, depending on geometry and suspension setup. Some times a bit of experimentation is necessary to see which works best. The important thing is the SC1 and SC2 are not differentiated by which works better or lasts longer at certain track temps. We still hear riders saying "SC1 is soft for cold track temp, SC2 is harder for hot track temp" and that is just WRONG these days.
The Pirelli Rear DOT race tires are available in THREE compounds, SC0, SC1 and SC2. On the rears, as opposed to the fronts, the intended use in terms of track temperature is relevant in choosing a compound. However, the compounds are the exact OPPOSITE of what most people assume. The SC0 Soft compound is intended exclusively for HOT track temps and smooth track surfaces. The SC1 Medium-Soft compound is intended for the widest range of track conditions, including hot track conditions. The SC2 Medium compound is the most durable and resistant to cold tearing at cooler track temps and still works fine up to moderately hot track temps. For track day use, either the SC1 or SC2 are good choices, with the SC1 recommended for warmer track temps and use for faster riders as it will offer more grip and (in general) better wear characteristics on hot track surfaces.
