Say hello to the all new ContiSportAttack 3 – our most advanced hypersport tyre to date!
Officially launched last week under sunny blue skies at the Red Bull Ring, the ContiSportAttack 3 sets new standards in both handling and performance at high angles of lean in both dry and wet conditions, which we got the chance to test on the latest BMW S1000RR along with former MotoGP rider Alex Hofmann. Other high performance machines are available, it’s just the one that caught our eye!
The ContiSportAttack 3, which is handmade in Germany, features a substantial improvement in levels of wet grip, thanks to a completely revised tread pattern which aids water drainage from around the contact patch, and our latest RainGrip compound, the result of extensive research and development by our expert chemists at Continental. The size of the contact patch has also been optimised to improve overall grip on both wet and dry surfaces.
Continental’s new Grip Limit Feedback Technology delivers unparalleled levels of feedback at high angles of lean, giving riders much greater control at the very limits of the tyre. The carcass design, which features a zero degree steel belt, has also been fine tuned to deliver superb stability and precise handling on the very latest breed of sports bikes.
Our innovative MultiGrip Technology, which creates a dual-compound style tyre from a single piece of rubber, has also been improved to make the tyre more durable, giving riders more mileage than it’s predecessor. Our core Traction Skin Technology is also included, which increases rider safety and reduces the need for scrubbing in thanks to the micro-rough surface which can be found on the tyre from new – increasing initial levels of grip from the moment the new tyre is fitted to the bike.
Ideal for fast road riding and the occasional track day!
