In the latest issue of Performance Bikes, the team have been looking back on their time with some of the great bikes they were lucky enough to get their hands on in 2016.
As well as running through all the mods and setup changes, they’ve also picked their ‘Tyre of Choice’ for each machine – with two premium Continental tyres featured!
- ContiRaceAttack Comp Endurance – Yamaha YZF-R1 ’16
“OE Supercorsa SPs were nervy on the road.
These were the perfect compromise: loads of grip, good feel from cold and even in the damp.”
The endurance version of our hugely popular ContiRaceAttack Comp is the most aggressive road tyre in our range.
With a more versatile compound than dedicated race rubber, there’s no need for tyre warmers, which can also make it ideal for trackdays where you want to spend more time riding and less time on setup!
They actually showed their track credentials by topping the time sheets in a blind tyre test by the same magazine in 2015,with Jeremy McWilliams on board at Rockingham to put them through their paces.
- ContiSportAttack 3 – BMW S1000XR ’16
“I don’t have one single negative comment about these tyres.
Grip was never an issue, hot or cold, wet or dry.
They handled predictably, were lasting well and are also competitively priced.”
Our very latest hypersport tyre topped the prestigious Fast Bike blind tyre test in 2016, and boasts a huge increase in wet grip, without compromising on the famous dry road grip the SportAttack family are famous for.
It’s also the official tyre of California Superbike School UK.
