Are those tyres on the right way around mate, normally the chevron tread faces forwards when the tyre rotates?

Just curious like…

Been thinking about getting them for ages, and should have. I went for aride on Saturday, first time in a fortnight, all the snow and ice had gone, or so I thought!
After my loop down and up the valley I went further and hit a very large and thick ice sheet across the lane. I was on it before I knew it, lost the back end and crashed down onto my back. Fortunately, I was only bruised and winded. Rode on home ego shattered.

You can pick up a new Ego from ebay mate

Finding a winter tyre in stock might be harder though


Glad you’re ok though
