Nick Sanders - after his Parallel World 50,000 km solo global trip on his Yamaha R1 in 2008 :
"The Road Attacks were not just good, they were incredible. I have circumnavigated the world 7 times, more than anyone else, and in my experience I have never come across such a tyre. I used 3 sets of tyres to ride 33 000 miles and a final set to get home from the USA.
Each set covered 11 500 miles. Admittedly, in certain areas such as Bolivia and the various deserts I crossed in the Sudan and Northern Kenya I rode them beyond their legal limit, but this amount of mileage is unheard of in sports tyres on a sports bike. In the past I have managed to achieve 8000 miles on the equivalent 190 tyre but the Road Attacks made these pale by comparison. But, mileage is not the only story. The big story was how they faired on the terrain. There is no doubt in my mind that this Parallel World journey crossed most of the worst roads and tracks that exist for a non-dual purpose bike. The Nubian crossed was soft but sandy and the tyre tread swept the loam and dirt with impunity. It was hard, but just possible. The Didi Gugalu Desert in Northern Kenya was a track with wall-splitting rocks embedded in the surface on what is one of the hardest roads I have come across. I worked hard not to hit these rocks but when inevitably I did, the rubber coped incredibly well.
There were times when if I had ridden on the roads I did with tyres I didnt trust, I would not be here to tell the tale. I go for sponsors whose products I believe in and I have to have the best."

"...pitched head to head against Bridgestone 020s, Metzeler Roadtec Z6 and Michelin Pilot Road... Conti claims it offers enough grip to satisfy the demands of proper performance bike riders... fast unplanned direction changes on unfamiliar mountain switchbacks proved drama free... the following day on Contis handling circuit the Road Attacks were superb... warm up time was minimal, grip superb and stability and precision of turn-in excellent... riding a Daytona 600 I almost forgot the Road Attacks were a sports touring tyre... on the wet handling circuit the Road Attack shod Fazer 1000 was superb with the front generating a huge amount of grip and the rear having to be ham fistedly abused with the throttle in order to get it to spin up... one other factor to tempt buyers: its price, youre looking at £150 per pair."

"...the Road Attack tyre benefits from a 12% larger footprint than its closest competitor which reduces stress on the tyre meaning a softer compound can be used... In my Yamaha report I complained about the bikes lack of surefootedness, and attributed that vagueness to its D252 tyres. Thankfully this point was quickly confirmed by the noticeably more grip and feedback the Contis provided, a factor that improved the machine considerably... The 20minute track session pushed the tyres to their performance limit and although the race track is not what these tyres have been designed for it was good to get them up to serious temperatures... again they responded well, very well when you consider they are sports-touring tyres... they do everything you could possibly ask of them, and do it well... whats even more encouraging is the super competitive pricing... if Continental isnt the name you might instantly think of when youre in the market for some new sports-touring rubber, maybe its time that it is"
