ContiSportAttack beats all-comers in latest sport tyre magazine test.

Leading German magazine "PS" pitted the tyres against each other on all aspects of motorcycling, including cold weather performance, braking stability, straight line stability and of course handling which was measured on the test track.

The ContiSportAttack was up against stiff opposition, opposition that maybe in the past, Continental have not had a competitor against in this sector of the market. This has al changed now, as the german brand excelled against tyres such as the Bridgestone BT-016, Dunlop Qualifier RR, Metzeler Sportec M3, Michelin Pilot Power 2CT and Pirelli Diablo Rosso.

The tyres were given a five star rating system for their credentials, and measurements were also taken for size, weight, acceleration, braking and lap time.

The ContiSportAttack didn’t drop many stars, in fact it only dropped four in all meaning that cold running, handling, precision, cornering stability and braking stability were all given top marks with the testers commenting that riding their bikes fitted with this tyre "made them smile within the first few metres".

Dirt vs. Street -- Tire & Bike

"Dirt" Tire on the Street:
(1) Accelerated Wear
A less-than 3000 mile life wouldn't be surprising.
(2) Decreased Traction
You're more likely to find the back end "sliding out" when you attempt to brake or turn suddenly.
(3) Increased Vibration
"Knobs" don't roll as smoothly as other tires.
You can find plenty of "knobby" tires that are DOT approved, and street legal, like the Dunlop 606, or Continental TKC80.
But you'd be better served by a tire such as the Metzeler Tourance or Michelin Anakee -- sacrificing some "dirt-worthiness" for increased tire life and street capability
