Query on Vreds Ultrac Sessanta

Guys, recently changed my tyres to non rft....

I drove for about 100 miles on the new tyres and yesterday had my first "emergency" braking....

Going at 50/60 mph and had to apply the brakes quite violently....

the stopping distance wasn't great and think ABS was kickin in "too much"....

Weather condition was dry and cold.

I think that the stopping/ braking performance was better with the shitty bridgestone rft...

Normal driving in the dry, the grip is similar to the bridgestones.

Anyone can comment on the braking performance of the Vreds?

As others have said,you'll need to put a few more miles (500ish) before they're properly scrubbed in.

What they said!.I'm running the same tyres.At least 500 miles will scrub them in nicely and you should be happy after that.
I wouldn't try too much spirited driving before then!
