Compound technology provides even more grip on wet roads
Continental Traction Skin Technology for safety
New design means greater dynamics
The ContiRoadAttack 2 from Continental is a new development for sports bikes and sports touring bikes. Continental have adapted the tread and compound to accommodate the latest findings in tyre technology, which means that this tyre achieves significantly more grip on wet and dry roads 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 which eliminates the need for a release agent which would normally adhere to the tyre surface during the curing process. The running-in time needed is significantly reduced making the ContiRoadAttack 2 the first tyre to offer complete riding safety from the moment 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 shoulder area 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 warm-up times, 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.
