ContiSportAttack 3 reviews

Our latest sporty road tyre, the ContiSportAttack 3 has once again impressed in an industry leading independent test undertaken by top magazine Motorrad.

Motorrad’s team of six experienced testers put the latest hypersport tyres from six major manufacturers to the test in a series of test scenarios, with the ContiSportAttack 3 topping the road section which covered an extensive route all the way from Germany to Spain’s Alcarras Circuit and back again.

Overall scores from Motorrad’s road test were as follows:

  • Continental ContiSportAttack 3 – 93/100
  • Metzeler Sportec M7 RR – 91/100
  • Pirelli Diablo Rosso III – 90/100
  • Dunlop SportSmart 2 Max – 90/100
  • Bridgestone Battlax S21 – 89/100
  • Michelin Power RS – 89/100

This year Motorrad have also subjected all six hypersport tyres to a mileage test, and we are pleased to announce that the ContiSportAttack 2 topped a further road test which took place once each tyre had covered 4,000 miles. This is further proof of the improved performance consistency our engineers have been able to deliver throughout the life of this latest tyre.
