By now you’ve probably heard about the new Continental TKC 70, mainly because we haven’t stopped talking about since it was launched right here in Wales in the summer of 2014!
More biased towards use on the road, but more than capable of tackling more rugged off-road terrain, we believe we have created the perfect adventure tyre for those who spend most of their time on the tarmac, but who still want the option to go exploring!
One of the many top journalists invited to the launch last year, Chris Moss has tested plenty of tyres in his time. Prior to the two days of test riding both on and off-road, it’s safe to say Chris, along with others, were somewhat sceptical. After all, trying to create a “do it all” tyre could have easily resulted in it being a jack of all trades, and master of none.
However, in his review posted in September following the launch, Chris described the new TKC 70 as “a revelation”.
“I’ve got no option but to declare the new TKC 70s as staggeringly capable tyres, and a real surprise. As a dual purpose tyre I’d have no hesitation in recommending them” says Chris. He then went on to state “For adventure bike riders who spend most of their time on the road, they’re perfect. And whenever those guys want to tackle a bit of lighter, less extreme off-road terrain, the TKCs will fit that bill too.”
