Hanover/Korbach, May 29, 2017. Very soon after its launch in March, Continental’s new motorcycle touring tire ContiRoadAttack 3 recorded its first test victory. The German motorcycling magazine MOTORRAD trialled six sports touring tires in sizes 120/70 ZR 17 (front) and 180/55 ZR 17 (rear) in its 12/2017 issue. The result of these tests put the newcomer from Korbach in first place.
Key evaluation criteria included handling, behavior at the limit and in wet conditions, grip during acceleration and at lean angle positions, steering precision, cornering and straight-line stability – and, at the end of the day, the ContiRoadAttack 3 came in first.
In particular, the testers commended the sporty, country road tire for its incredible performance over many years. Continental has been able to significantly enhance the positive features of the tire once again, especially in wet conditions. The new tire is therefore able to continue the success story of previous Continental test winners. The testers were won over by the new tire's sophisticated solutions that incorporate exclusive Continental technologies like MultiGrip, TractionSkin, ZeroDegree, RainGrip and EasyHandling.
The qualities of ContiRoadAttack 3 impressed the testers immensely: “Conti always did build very sporty tires for country roads and we have awarded them the ‘Country roads’ purchasing recommendation time and time again in the past. The brand new Road Attack 3 is no exception. At the same time the developers have reworked the wet performance of the new tire with such effectiveness that, not only are they able to celebrate their first stage win as king of the country roads, but also have the 2017 test victory in the bag.”
