Hanover/Korbach, May 20, 2016. In the latest sports tire test by motorcycle magazine "Fastbike," June/July/August 2016 issue, the new Hypersport tire ContiSportAttack 3 ended up right on top of the podium after what was a fast-paced marathon. After more than 1,000 kilometers on the racetrack and 17 individual disciplines, the racing tire from Korbach came out ahead of the pack and was declared the test winner.
"It has an extremely high grip level, it handles well, and is stable and exceptionally accurate. (...) It gave an impressive performance, even when it came to wet handling," concluded the test crew. The test included seven road-homologated sports tires, which all had to complete an extensive test cycle. Stability when cornering and in straight lines, traction on varying surfaces, grip during the first and last lap, as well as "dry" and "wet" lap times were just some of the items on the tire testers' agenda.
