We say

Thanks to its new nose rocker, the Rictor is very easy to use. It's particularly forgiving in softer, more chopped up conditions. Though initially it feels a bit of a pussycat, when you ramp up the speed and the edge-angle, it can deliver the goods. It gives out very strong edge-grip, has a smooth, classy ride, and feels ideal for long, fast turns.

Tester Comments

Roddy Willis
Easy and relatively cheap in this category, the tip made turn-initiation easy. But it still has lots of grip
Lee Townend
The Mercedes-Benz of the group: smooth, fast and classy
