Best sports bike tyre on the road

In the May edition of German magazine  PS, their team of top motorcycle product testers have been putting a range of hypersport tyres from six different manufacturers through their paces.

Included in this range of six leading hypersport tyres was the ContiSportAttack 2, as used by California Superbike School UK across their entire fleet of track bikes. The other five products tested were as follows:

  • Bridgestone S20 EVO
  • Dunlop SportSmart 2
  • Metzeler Sportec M7-RR
  • Michelin Pilot Power 3
  • Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa

The tyres were put through a series of test in both wet and dry conditions, with the ContiSportAttack 2, which features our unique Traction Skin technology and Black Chili compound for fast warm up times scoring 29 out of a possible 30 points for handling in the dry, the highest of any tyre tested. It also scored a perfect 10/10 for handling in the wet., again the highest of any tyre tested. It also came top of the table in the dry steering accuracy tests with 29 out of a possible of 30 points scored.

The ContiSportAttack 2 also scored 9/10 for its performance under braking in the dry putting it joint 1st in that test, and took a joint 2nd place with 27 out of a possible 30 for feedback in both the wet and dry tests.

Following the test the magazine rated the ContiSportAttack 2 as the “Best On Public Roads” of all the tyres they tested saying it sets the “absolute reference” whilst praising the precise and neutral handling from the tyre.

Our latest hypersport tyre features all of our core technologies including Traction Skin which minimises the need for scrubbing in. Continuous Compound Technology creates a multi compound style tyre from a single piece of rubber, eliminating the feeling of “step” that riders often experience moving from one rubber compound to the next when transitioning in corners.
