We are pleased to announce the arrival of the first five sizes of the new ContiSportAttack 3 hypersport tyre range in the UK.
Launched at the Red Bull Ring in 2015, and featuring our unique Grip Limit Feedback technology, the new ContiSportAttack 3 sets new benchmarks in terms of high performance tyres for sports bikes.
The ContiSportAttack 2 was well known for it’s excellent dry grip and light, neutral handling, but our engineers in Germany have completely revised the tread pattern for the new tyre and incorporated our latest Rain Grip compound to deliver huge improvements in the wet. Tyre life has also been improved to give you more miles for your money.
In 2016 it will be the official tyre of California Superbike School UK, who will fit it to their fleet of Ducati track bikes used by both students and coaches.
The sizes available in the UK as of today are as follows:
- 110/70 ZR17 M/C 54W TL – Front
- 120/70 ZR17 M/C (58W) TL – Front
- 150/60 ZR17 M/C 66W TL – Rear
- 180/55 ZR17 M/C (73W) TL – Rear
- 190/55 ZR17 M/C (75W) TL – Rear
Other sizes in the range include 190/50 and 200/55 rears, with further deliveries are expected later this month. A full list of ContiSportAttack 3 sizes can be found here.
The new ContiSportAttack 3 has been fine tuned to suit the very latest high performance sports bike, offering greater stability than it’s predecessor, along with more precise handling. An enlarged contact patch also boosts overall grip levels. Grip Limit Feedback has been developed to give riders an early warning when they are reaching the limits of the tyre, so that they can ride right on the edge with confidence.
Ex-MotoGP rider Alex Hofmann tested the tyre at Assen on his KTM 1290 Superduke R, and you can watch his video in full below:
