Con­ti­nen­tal Spor­tat­tack 3 SIX GREAT BITS OF BIK­ING EQUIP­MENT


Motorcycle News (UK) - - 2016 Missions Spring Edition -

What are they? Conti’s sporty road tyres. Who are they for? Road riders who might in­dulge in the oc­ca­sional track so­journ. What’s new? Conti prom­ise the big­gest im­prove­ments on the new tyre come in longevity and wet per­for­mance. It says an in­creased ‘land-sea ra­tio’ helps boost the mileage, with more rub­ber and fewer grooves through the cen­tral band to re­duce wear. Conti are also in­tro­duc­ing a new tech with the ad­vent of Griplim­it­feed­back, which they prom­ise will give more feel for the lim­its of lean. Sizes: Front: 110/ 70, 120/60, 120/ 70 – all 17in. Rear: 150/60, 160/60, 180/55, 190/50, 190/55, 200/55 – all 17in. MCN says: “Warmed up quickly on-track and gave instant con­fi­dence and let me have fun on a 196bhp su­per­bike. They feel more like trackday tyres than ev­ery­day sports rub­ber, which is an im­pres­sive feat,” Michael Neeves,
