Heidenau K60, 130-17", new redesign/longer life - who has a pic???

there is a redesigned 130-17" K60 out there that was a redesign for better life, but can't seem to find a pic. Does it have a center wear bar like the new 140 & 150? The original 130-17" had very poor tire life vrs price paid. Wondering how this redo is going to compare to Mefo? Who's got a pic?

I have a just purchased K60 in 130/80-17 from Black Dog Cycle Works - it says "Scout" on the side and was just shipped at the beginning of September.

The tread looks virtually identical to the previous K60 and it has none of the solid center strip elements.

This link shows the tread on each size pretty well.

i read his comment about new design
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...7&postcount=10
i swear i read elsewhere it now had a center strip.
this tire was from his brand new batch?
so maybe a different rubber compound?
deeper tread?

I’m looking at the newly designed K60 Scout but in the 150-70-17. I noted that the 130 photo in the above ^^ link doesn’t have the new design (center strip you’re referring to), just the 150. So maybe its only on the 150.

Here’s a photo of the new design. It’s not mine, found it on the web. The jury is still out on whether I get a set…lots of great reviews on the Scouts but I want to read more actual experience with this new design.

each size has a different design. the 140-17" has the same center bar as the 150 after it wears down a bit.

Here's a clear picture of the rear tire.

Heidenau K60 Scout 130/80-17



Indeed the centre blocks are NOT connected.
