Why should you choose a Sport-Touring tire?
If you are someone who lives by the motto “I’m not going anywhere without my bike,” and you are thinking about changing tires, Continental wants to help you understand why sport-touring tires just might be your best option. If you use your bike to travel, to have fun on the road, and also for everyday use, you need tires capable of keeping up with you without losing performance. What are their advantages?
- Versatility: This is their greatest strength. If there is something that characterizes sport-touting tires, it is that they have touring abilities without sacrificing sportiness, in addition to being effective for everyday journeys. This range allows the user to move over all types of roads in safety.
- Performance: Sport-touring tires have nothing to envy to sport tires for road use. They are exposed to high demands on very powerful motorcycles, they are designed for heavy motorcycles, with passenger and luggage, that’s why they are strong tires. Equipping your motorcycle with the right tires is essential to achieve total efficiency on the asphalt, without losing safety performance or mileage.
- Technologies: To offer versatility as well as performance, sport-touring tires have to be developed with all the technology that the segment needs. Continental applies in this range all the work of the R&D department to obtain the best grip regardless of the road and its different conditions.
At Continental we know the importance of this range, that’s why we work continuously to offer the best sport-touring tires on the market. Today we introduce our best options: the ContiRoadAttack 3, the ContiRoad, the ContiMotion and the ContiTrailAttack3.
The ContiRoadAttack 3 tires have a touring style and a performance that does not decline over the miles, making it a perfect choice for those who choose to travel with their motorcycle without giving up a sporty ride. They offer excellent safety performance in the wet thanks to the Rain-Grip technology applied by Continental, which guarantees maximum grip in the most difficult conditions.
Among the technologies that make the ContiRoadAttack 3 one of the most outstanding tires on the market are MultiGrip technology (makes even uniform wear of the tire thanks to temperature control) and TractionSkin technology (prevents the tire from “skidding” when it is freshly installed).
The ContiRoadAttack 3 tires are the most premium option of Continental’s sport-touring range and their performance has been guaranteed on numerous occasions by industry specialists, here you can see the opinions published by media such as Motorrad Magazine or Mopedreifen. In order to satisfy all users, Continenetal has several sizes compatible with most models and different types of bikes: 17″, 18″ and 19″ front and 17″ and 18″ rear, plus a ‘GT’ version with a more resistant casing for heavier touring bikes, there are even sizes for the most common bikes of the Trail-asphalt segment of the market.
The ContiRoad was launched only a year ago and has already become rider favorite. They are considered the ‘little brother’ of the ContiRoadAttack 3, as they aim to satisfy the need for safe, durable and high performance motorcycle tires at a more accessible price. In fact, these tires share some of the technologies with the ContiRoadAttack 3 such as ZeroDegree or RainGrip technology.
Versatility is also a quality of the ContiRoad, as it is presented as an option compatible with many types of motorcycles and valid for mixed urban, touring and sport use. The ContiRoad has also passed the filter of experts, from specialized journalists to brands. For example, KTM has chosen these tires to fit its latest 2021 KTM 890 Duke as its original tire.
The ContiMotion responds to the most economical segment as it has an unbeatable quality-price ratio. They have been created to respond to any road conditions and Continental has also applied ZeroDegree technology to the rear tire to provide greater stability and handling. In terms of mileage, ContiMotion tires are ready to go on the road without worrying about the durability of your tires.
While not technically a sport-touring tire, for adventure riders who put in a lot of highway miles, the ContiTrailAttack 3 was designed for you. First introduced in Continental’s range in 2019, the TrailAttack 3 is positioned as the most asphalt-friendly option for lovers of adventure bikes (90% road/10% off-road).
For its design and construction, Continental’s latest-generation technologies have been taken into account, including TractionSkin, MultiGrip, EasyHandling, ZeroDegree and RainGrip. Thanks to the combination of all these technologies and the confidence of a product made in Germany, a ContiTrailAttack 3 offers excellent performance throughout its service life, whatever the road conditions. So much so that even after thousands of miles, they remain fully usable.
