CONTINENTAL TRAIL ATTACK 3? and road attack 3 experiences
« on: September 26, 2018, 11:22:03 PM »
Hi everybody. Anybody tried the Continental Road Attack 3 yet? I'm very undecided to go with them or the Conti Trail Attack 2s for my Explorer XCA 2017 because the latter are specifically built for adventure machines and the former aren't , al though they come in the required sizes. Any comments on this subject? Also, anybody knows when the Trail attack 3s are coming out? thanks, Ozzie  :062:

I have changed my mind on my next set of tires and I am going to have the road attack 3 as my next set.  If you can wait a few months I can tell you how it goes.  Currently have almost 9K on my OEM set and they still have a little life left in them.

Thank you mate. I fitted the Conti Road Attack 3 already and I will pick up the bike in 2 weeks with new rubber. Will let you know how it goes.

Guys sorry it took me so long!

AWESOME FEEL!!! man just incredible grip, no need to worry about slippery in the beginning as they are prescuffed, NO NOISE!! of course we are talking about ROAD 3 so they are for road.

Don't hesitate, man they made the Metzelers look horrible.  I'm going for the Trail Attack 3 next as they are a bit more robust for big bikes and I like the tire paint a bit more.

Enjoy them and let me know how they went!

Hey folks, any new reviews or updates on Conti Road / Trail Attack 3s????

I know I've heard good things about the earlier versions. Needing a new pair of shoes for herself and very curious about these...

Pints owed for any thoughts!  :031:

In my area, the Trail Attack 3's are available, but the remainder Trail Attack 2's are significantly cheaper. I just ordered a set of 2's.

Umm, not quite, I don't think any manufacturer would go to the trouble of "pre-scuffing" tyres. You will find that they do away with the usual tyre release agents, as they have a special coating on the mold. Oh, yeah, I like how they also put the writing on the sidewall the CORRECT way, just like it should be, perhaps one day other manufacturers will take note!!  :002:
