ROAD ATTACK 3
RANKING: #4 Sport Touring Tire
Performance oriented pattern design for better drainage in wet conditions. More improved wet grip due to an optimized compound. The EasyHandling technology bestows the tire with linear handling even if stabilizing gyroscopic forces are nominal (e.g. when turning). Simultaneously, accuracy and groundingfeeling are improved at benchmark level – applies to all riding situations in this segment. Comfortable and easy for all demands, whether on long rides or winding roads. Balanced characteristics from the first to the last mile. TractionSkin, a revolutionary new micro-rough tread surface, virtually puts an end to tire break-in. This is possible due to a new mold coating technology which eliminates the need for tire-release agents. MultiGrip makes it possible to use a homogenous grip grading with a single compound thanks to temperature controlled curing of the tire during the production process.
Great in dry
Mixed reviews on wet handling
The Continental Road Attack 3 is a well rated tire. Mileage is slightly lower than competitors but it is still praised by riders.

49 reviews. 4.9 of 5 stars. On a 2012 R1200GS, have over 7k miles, no complaints. On a Triumph Tiger 1200 XRT, got over 16k miles, great grip in wet and dry, don't scallop, on their second set.. On a 2018 Triumph Bonneville T120, made a great difference in handling, more easily falls into corners, feels more planted. On a Nighthawk 750, felt like was riding more in the bike vs on the bike.
