    Overall Tire/Tyre Review

    There aren’t currently many reviews for the Continental Road Attack 2. The rear is rated significantly better than the front. If it weren’t for the front tire reviews the Continental Road Attack 2 would be rated higher. This tire uses a somewhat new technology called traction skin which provides stick almost immediately and reduces break-in time. Reviewers agreed there was a noticeable, positive difference in break-in time.

    On GSX1400, 2,000km ride report, sharper tire profile lets bike tip in quicker, but also contributes to wander on the road.

    Felt that the traction skin helped with initial tire handling, more on the sporting side of sport/touring.
