Continental Road Attack 2 180/55ZR17 Rear


  • Compound technology provides even more grip on wet roads
  • Continental Traction Skin Technology for safety
  • New design means greater dynamics

Hanover, October 2009. The ContiRoadAttack 2 from Europes leading tyre manufacturer Continental is a new development for sports bikes and sports touring bikes. Continentals development engineers in Korbach in the German federal state of Hesse have adapted the tyre tread and compound to accommodate the latest findings in tyre technology, which means that this tyre achieves more grip on wet roads and more on dry asphalt than its popular predecessor. Handling and mileage performance has also been increased.

These results were achieved through a range of design measures in tyre development. Continental Traction Skin Technology, for example, uses a special coating in the tyre mould to prevent the release agents required when baking the tyre in the mould from remaining on the tyre afterwards. The running-in time needed for the tyre is therefore safe and extremely short. This makes the new ContiRoadAttack 2 the first tyre to offer complete riding safety as soon as it is fitted.

The new tyre offers a further safety benefit on sports bikes and sports touring bikes, thanks to its Continuous Compound Technology - the combination of a soft compound on the sidewall with harder rubber across the middle of the tread increases safety during cornering, without having to sacrifice high mileage performance. The use of Black Chili Compound containing silica and carbon black, as used in the racing world, means faster heat build-up, something that is important for grip, especially on wet roads. The tyre structure was also redesigned to achieve greater riding dynamics and grip. This involved marrying the steel belt casing with the special tyre contour to further enhance safe handling and precise steering response.
