Best adventure motorcycle tyre

It may only have been on the market for a few months, but the ContiTrailAttack 3 has just topped the motorcycle industry’s most respected independent tyre test!

Six manufacturers submitted their latest road-biased adventure motorcycle tyres to be tested by the experienced independent team at Motorrad, who were all equipped with identical BMW R1250GS motorcycles using 120/70 R19 and 170/60 R17 sized tyres.

In total, the ContiTrailAttack 3 scored a total of 320 points from a potential 350, finishing ahead of competitor products including the Michelin Anakee Adventure, Metzeler Tourance Next, Dunlop TrailSmart Max, Bridgestone Battlax A41 and Pirelli Scorpion Trail II.

On dry country roads, the Motorrad team praised the precise feedback and fast warm up times, stating that “B-roads handling belongs to Continental!”

ContiTrailAttack 3 tests

With it’s upgraded RainGrip compound and revised tread pattern, the ContiTrailAttack 3 takes our wet weather performance to altogether new levels. Testers noted that it was a big improvement over our previous generation tyre, offering excellent grip and predictable feedback when riding at the limit.

Our engineers have also gone to great lengths to improve the durability, claiming class leading rates of wear, so it was reassuring to see that the ContiTrailAttack 3 topped the tables when it came to tyre wear after 3,500km of riding!

Summing up, the magazine said that “curve junkies are clearly on the TrailAttack 3, which has experienced a noticeable development spurt, not only from it’s predecessor, but also the competition in everyday usage and wear.”
