Continental Sport Attack 2 Tires
THESE TIRES GRIP, AND THEN GRIP SOME MORE
I have yet to take them to the track, However from the first time I rode on these tires after about 5-10 miles I felt an incredible difference and improvement in grip, especially after my last set of dunlop sportmax tires that came factory on my CBR600.
Those tires would feel a little iffy when I would lean aggressively.
These Sport Attack 2's do not fail to keep reminding you that they're gripping even in the most aggressive lean angles. I say this because I have gone all the way down to the foot pegs a few times and they just flat out hold the grip. I have all the faith in the world in these tires every time I hop on the bike to ride.
I have been in some moderate rain with these tires as well, but aggressive riding isn't exactly something that I want to do when the roads get slick. But no troubles in the wet.
I don't tend to do much up right riding as the bike is usually leaned during a trip longer than it is upright, and with that said I have put about 3,200 miles on these tires and the front tire could easily see another 5-7k. The rear tire however after 3,200 miles of pretty aggressive riding is showing its wear and will probably only see another 1,500 to 2,000 miles at most before it is replaced. (personal preference) so I'd say almost a 5,000 mile tire for the rear if your're riding aggressively.
I'll take the 5,000 miles and amazing grip to pair with it over and over.
All in all my next rear tire purchase will be a repeat. Could not be more satisfied.

Perfect tire all the way 'round
I test rode the 2012 BMW S1000RR when it came out all those years. And although it's not the bike I have now, the handling feels exactly the same. I would buy the tire over and over without hesitation!!!

So I bought a rear tire before I bought the front. The rear was very nice ride, no issues at all. When I bought the front tire and installed it, I different story happens here. I almost died.... Seems like there has been a huge recall on a lot of continental tires, mine was one. One night I was riding home and I did a high speed pull down a nice straight road when all of the sudden I started to get ungodly tank slap, it was so violent that I lost control over front brakes(no pressure availible due the the integrated steering damper on my 2012 cbr1000rr ) and I was starting to lose control of the bike. Somehow I survived, got the bike serviced to find out the front tire was in recall. All in all I think revzilla should notify anyone who bought anything that has a recall. I could have died, but instead just fractured my knee on my frame from the violent tank slap that could have ended my life. If the bike tire was as good as the front I would possibly buy there again. . .

Great tires at a good price. I've done a few long trips and some spirited weekend rides, including a track day, and the tires still look good and are holding up. I would purchase these again, no question.

Normal tires (such as my old battlax's) require a break in period in order to remove the surface layer of slick rubber. So do these, the only difference is with the Conti Attack 2 tires that distance is all of 1 mile. No joke. Which leads one to thinking it must be soft rubber.. also wrong. I live in southern Mass and just put 2000 miles on these tires in one week traveling to upper Maine near rockport, many rides around Maine and then the jurney home and the treads have not budged. As far as traction goes try to make them slip. I dare you. These come stock on the 2014 s1000rr and Ive taken them into turns until i scrape peg without the slightest worry they will let me down. I could go on forever about how beast these tires are but one last comment: the ride home from Maine was through intense rain storms, on the highways and off, still gripped like a champ. I avoid riding like a suicidal maniac in the rain but the confidence was still there with these tires. Highly Recommended.

VERY sticky tire
this tire is EXTREMELY sticky... with the more track oriented profile it also dips much easier and with much more presicion than the previous tires i've had (pireilii and metzler) i have only put 500-600 miles on the tire but so far the tread wear seems to be spot on... normally i cant tell by now if it's gonna wear abnormally or anything i don't care for.

I had the Stock Metzler tires. These give me more confidence.
