    Tire/Tyre Description

    The Continental Road Attack provides a zero degree steel-belted tire, with the performance of a sports tire and the longevity of a touring tire. The modern compound for the contact patch delivers excellent grip on wet and dry roads for sports and all-year-round touring riders. Provides a very high degree of off riding comfort and big safety reserves in the breakaway phase thanks to the carcass construction’s 0° technology. Light handling and balanced behaviour under varying conditions, thanks to the MCD (Multi Curvature Design) of the tire profile.

    6 reviews. 4.5 of 5 stars. On a Hayabusa – replaced factory BT-56, deep tread and sticky compared to BT-56. Another reports the tire falls very easily into turns. On a ZRX – no surprises on wet or dry, got 8,000 miles from the rear. On a 2007 V-Strom DL650 – liked them better than the Pilots, Road Attack provides solid dry, rain, cornering, stopping power.
