It’s that time of year again, when the whole motorcycle industry up sticks to Milan for the annual EICMA show.
Today we’re pleased to announce that we’ve unveiled two new tyres which will be added to our 2018 range in front of a large crowd in the north Italian city.
- ContiRoadAttack 3 CR
We’ve been the dominant force in classic endurance racing for several years now with the hugely popular ContiRoadAttack 2 CR used by the likes of Phase One Endurance, Neate Racing and Alf’s Kawasaki to name but a few UK squads.
Next year we’re upping our game once again with the all-new ContiRoadAttack 3 CR.
Based on the award winning ContiRoadAttack 3 sport touring tyre, it promises to offer a huge leap forward in terms of wet race performance, whilst also offering greater outright dry grip and maintaining the high levels of stability for which it’s predecessor it famed.
The compound has been tweeked to offer optimal performance in endurance races, and the custom 150/65 R18 rear size has been designed to provide maximum traction on corner exit.
We expect this tyre to be available in the second quarter of 2018.
- ContiAttack SM EVO
Designed for use on supermoto and small capacity sports motorcycles, the Attack SM EVO boasts high levels of outright grip and nimble handling.
Based on the original ContiAttack SM, which has been an OE fitment for both KTM and Husqvarna, the EVO includes a brand new compound which improves performance when faced with changing road conditions as well as increasing mileage.
The new EVO also receives our unique Traction Skin treatment, with a micro-rough surface on the tyre from new to provide additional grip levels from the very first metre of it’s service life. It also works to greatly reduce the initial scrubbing in period.
A refined zero degree steel belt construction continues to offer great high speed stability alongside improved feedback for increased rider confidence.
