best sport touring tyre in wet

If you’re looking for a sport touring tyre that offers excellent security in the wet and great mileage, then the ContiRoadAttack 3 is the tyre for you.

In a recent independent test by the highly respected Motorrad Magazine, our ‘GT’ specification ContiRoadAttack 3 topped the standings in both wet braking and durability.

A crop of six of the very latest sport touring tyres including the new Michelin Road 5, Metzeler Roadtec 01 and Bridgestone T31 were all put through their paces on a BMW R1200RS by Motorrad’s highly experienced team.

Braking in the wet from 100kph, the ContiRoadAttack 3 GT stopped dead in 42.4 metres, while at the same time last placed tyre was still doing 26.9kph. Our unique Rain Grip compound, combined with a re-engineered tread pattern work in harmony to give riders a real confidence boost when riding on wet tarmac.

ContiRoadAttack 3 wet performance

When it came to mileage, after covering 3,600 kilometres the rear tyre was 54% worn, and the front only 39.5% worn, making the ContiRoadAttack 3 GT the most durable of the size tyres tested on both the front and rear wheel.

The durability of the ContiRoadAttack 3 range is aided by our unique Multi Grip technology, which creates a dual-compound style tyre from a single piece of rubber. A carefully controlled rubber curing process creates a durable central area, which gets gradually softer towards the shoulders for a progressive increase in grip levels as you transition into corners.

It also benefits from our popular Traction Skin technology, which produces a micro-rough surface during the moulding process to give riders increased grip from the moment a new tyre is fitted, drastically reducing the initial scrubbing in period normally associated with new rubber.
