1. Expertise: Third generation
The ContiTrailAttack family was first released in 2007 with a second-generation rolling out in 2012. Ongoing research, improvements, tweaks, and
developments by Continental’s Korbach-based engineers, led to the release of the ContiTrailAttack 3 in 2019. After more than 10 years of development, this third-generation mixed-use further consolidated Continental’s lead in the adventure tire market.
2. Advanced technology applied
For its design and construction, Continental’s Next-Generation Core Technologies play a big part in the ongoing improvements featured in the ContiTrailAttack 3, including:
- MultiGrip: This is a compound vulcanized at different temperatures that provides more resistance/strength in the central tread area to endure for miles so it doesn’t “wear down”.
- TractionSkin: prevents the tire from “skidding” when it is freshly installed. The initial running-in of the tire is eliminated by providing it with a “micro-rough” surface, thus making it the safest tire from the start.
- ZeroDegree: this technology optimizes impact absorption and guarantees the user extreme stability at high speeds.
- RainGrip: This exclusive Continental compound gives the tire more grip on wet or slippery surfaces, also increasing mileage.
Thanks to the combination of all these technologies and the reliability of a product made in Germany, a ContiTrailAttack 3 has been obtained with excellent lifetime performance. So much so that even after thousands of miles, they are still fully usable. In addition, the rider has a tire she can trust right from the start, since the warm-up time is very short and the tire can be operated at full performance from the first mile and a half.
3. Developed and made in Germany
The ContiTrailAttack 3 are developed and manufactured in Germany’s Korbach factory, the famous ContiDrom development center, and tested on the fast German autobahns. At Continental’s Engineering Center, more than 1,000 scientists, designers and engineers are dedicated to inventing, developing and testing with the goal of achieving the performance that every user is looking for.
4. EasyHandling, the last rabbit pulled out of the hat
Of all the technologies presented by Continental in the ContiTrailtAttack 3, EasyHandling is the one that stands out the most.
