Continental TKC70 Dual Sport Tires

Bridging the gap between the more off-road oriented TKC 80 Twinduro Tires and the Trail Attack 2 Tires, the Continental TKC70 Tires make an excellent 60% on-road and 40% off-road option. Featuring innovations you've come to expect from Continental like 0° steel belt construction for superior stability and comfort even at high cruising speeds and Continuous Compound-Technology, the TKC70 tires adapt to changing conditions with ease. 

Specifically designed to help alleviate the complaints of short wear-life of the TKC80 Tires, the TKC70's are equally at home on light trail work as they are on slab. The usability of a slightly more street-oriented design is apparent and provides a high level of grip in all wet and dry conditions thanks to Continental's Rain Grip Compound. Aggressive siping and self-cleaning grooves add to the inclement-weather prowess of the TKC 70. When the open road calls, expect excellent mileage for long trips on asphalt and quiet, high-speed stability due to the central band on the rear tire.

An ideal ADV Tire choice for larger displacement bikes like:

  • KTM 1190 Adventure
  • Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200
  • BMW R1200GSW
  • Suzuki V-Strom 1000
  • Yamaha Super Tenere

Continental TKC 70 Tires 3.8 5 40 40
So far so good I'm using two rear's due to my front being an odd 18" rim and almost impossible to find an actual front adventure tire in that size. That being said, I love these tires so far. They have a very aggressive look, but handled the pavement very well on my last trip to the mountains. I hit the fire roads and some well groomed trails and the grip was better than expected. I can't comment on wet pavement performance, as I have not driven in the rain with them, but I have no doubt they would push water well. But to be honest, I live in the U.S., have a weather app, and ride the bike for fun on days I know it's not supposed to rain...so there's that. October 29, 2015
Great compromise for adventure riders I can say I have tested this tire in a number of conditions. I did some offroad training on this tire (dirt,grass,gravel) and then took it on a 6000km roadtrip which was mostly highway. This tire performs well in both situations. On the twisties I never felt I was lacking traction (even in the wet) and in the dirt it held up quite well. I'm getting close to needing a new rear after about 10000km but I blame all the straight highway riding. I think gravel road is just about how much "off pavement" they can handle, but what you lose in offroad ability you get back in the smoothness of the ride on road. That solid ring of rubber around the rear makes keeps the vibrations down on the road. September 26, 2015
Buy the rear tire only, great tire! Front tire shakes horribly! Couldn't wait to get these tires on my Tiger XC. From the first day to now, 2000 + miles the front tire has had head shake from 25 mph up to as fast as i dared to take it. After returning to the shop three times for re-balance and checking the spokes there was no change. Sent e-mail to Continental a month ago and received no response of any kind! Very disappointing! With that said, the rear tire is FANTASTIC! 2000 + miles total on it with 1500 miles two up and loaded to the hilt, very little wear showing. Off road traction is better than expected. I expected a lot! Handles great in wet and dry weather, hot or cold. Absolutely love the rear tire! September 26, 2015
Great Tire, Serious Manufacturing Issues These tires really are the sweet spot between the TKC80 and the Trail Attack 2, having become my favorite all around tire. That being said don't waste your time. After 2 fronts with head shake issues at 50+ mph. The front tires I've had are obviously out of round with an undeniable wobble. I would say keep looking until Continental fixes the issues with this tire. September 23, 2015
Good Tire So far these tires have performed well on Gravel Roads and on Pavement. They seem to be the perfect balance for my riding style on Vstrom 650 September 23, 2015
wasting money wobble on front tire after 4000miles.did about 5000 miles total mostly on dirt (dempster/dalton highway )on my alaska trip.bad on wet pavement. September 22, 2015
waisted my money, dont waist yours... any freeway with the grooves cut in will cause your bike to have "serious front tire wobble". Im sure that can happen to any tire, but I had to slow down to 60 mph and ride in the slow lane. also pretty noticeable vibration on normal smooth roads. Yes the tire pressure is correct... Ive put about 500 miles on the tires and cant take the stress anymore. Just ordered another set of tires. going back to the 90/10 Metzler Torrence Next. those are the OME tires.. I should have stuck with them in the first place.. live and learn and inform others.. : ) front tire is noisy too. continuous harmonic humming sounds. to be fair... Rear tire is nice. grips well, feels good, looks great, but its getting swapped too. I want matched tires... September 19, 2015
Product has serious flaw The good: The rear tire has good traction and handles well. Tread life seems to be about average. Does well in dirt but finds its limits quickly in mud or sand. I would buy another rear tire in this model. The bad: Front tire is dangerous at highway speeds. There is a wobble that can be annoying to downright scary. Road conditions, and whether you are loaded seem to exacerbate the issue. Went on a 5000 mile trip with five different bikes ranging from KTM 1290 to BMW 800. All bikes had brand new TKC 70's on. Everyone of the bikes had a wobble with the front tire. The only thing that varied from each bike was the speed at which which you were going experience the shaking. Also, the front tire center blocks have strange wear patterns from side to side. Conti will blame the wear pattern on improper inflation which is incorrect. We all five checked the air pressure before each days ride to ensure tires were within specs. And all 5 have the same uneven wear on the center blocks. Conti will also tell you that they have never heard of the wobble issue. However, there are enough reviews around to show that this is not an isolated occurrence. My friend almost died because he attempted to power through the wobble while passing a car on I-25. Bottom line is rear tire is a great tire. Front tire is dangerous. September 16, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Tim N: I wanted a tire between the trail attacks and the TKC 80.
I have no complaints so far, I now know I wont ever go with any less tread, but may try a little more at some point in time.
They are great for what I foresee me doing, mostly paved road, with weekend voyages down gravel and rocky dirt roads.
Oct 4, 2015
Dominic P: Looking for good on-road and off road performance. Aug 19, 2015
A L: These are a fine choice on gravel and highway conditions. Mud not so much and not that great in deep sand. That is to be expected looking at the tread design. They run quiet on the pavement and I have about 4K on the back tire. It is about done. Aug 15, 2015
Jeff P: After reading the reviews on ADVRIDER I decided it was a good choice based off of the general thoughts of the dual sport community. Have now ran the Mefo, TKC80 and Conti Attack I am interested in seeing how this new tire performs Jul 27, 2015
William J: Cause there the best !! Jul 25, 2015
Lionel N: This will be my second set. The original set lasted well beyond my expectations. They are great in the dry, wet, twisties, and dirt (unless riden in mud). Jul 14, 2015
TrongHai L: Love the tire with 70% road and 30% off road Jul 14, 2015
Salvador V: Based on the positive reviews, and a fan of continental tires, I decided to give this tire a chance. So far I put over 2500 miles on it and i have nothing negative to say. The tire has performed better than expected on the road in all different kinds of weather. Still have not taken it off road yet. I highly recommend this great all around tire! Jul 13, 2015
Houck c/o M: Wanted to try out the new product. Jun 15, 2015
Robert H: Needed a more dirt oriented tire, but not as aggressive as a TKC80. Jun 6, 2015
Paul A: Hoping to increase mileage over TKC80 Jun 3, 2015
Terry A: Based on forum research for my application, as well as other reviews. Jun 2, 2015
Daniel W: Looking for a rear tire to compliment the TKC-80 on the front of my R1200GS ADV. I had been running a Tourance (not Next ) on the rear and it worked pretty well, just looking for something more dirt - orientated. After 500 miles ( highway,
backroad and dirt roads), the rear TKC-70 seems to be working pretty well although at this point, I am not convinced it will be better all-around tire than the Tourance. Time will tell.
May 4, 2015
Cliff D: My tkc 80 rear tire burned off too quickly, and I wanted to try a semi off road tire to match the tkc 80 front tire to try that combination. May 1, 2015
Julian C: i ve read lot of reviews and these seem to meet my needs in terms of 70 to 80 road use and 30 20 off road use. also because they last long and behaves well in all weather conditions. bmw r 1200 gsa W Apr 30, 2015
Albert H: Looked cool, had good reviews, my old tires were shot. Apr 30, 2015
Diego A: Its the perfect dual sport tire, Apr 28, 2015
David W: Need more of an aggressive tread than the types that came on the GS, and don't want full knobby TKC80s. Apr 27, 2015
David R: TKC80's dont last long enough, hoping these will! Apr 23, 2015
B M: Currently running TKC80s; need a more 50/50 tyre. My KTM friends are telling me how amazing these tyres are in the rain! Apr 23, 2015
Doug D: looking for a duel sport tire that will last over 2,000 miles but still work off road. Apr 22, 2015
Dean M: Continental is my tire of choice but, the Trail Attack are too street oriented and don't handle so well off road. My BMW R1200 GSA came with them from the factory and turned out to be my highest mileage tire in 43 years of riding. The TKC-80s, I've heard (never ran them) wear out within 3K. I look forward to getting these TKC-70s and giving them a try. I'm sure they are going to be a great tire! Apr 19, 2015
Keith H: Street performance w some dirt road capability Apr 18, 2015
Steve T: Good on line reviews and write-up in Cycle World. Apr 16, 2015
Kevin W: Looking for a good cross over tire reviews were good. Apr 10, 2015
John P. W: I really wanted the Heidenau K60 Scout, but I can't wait any longer. In my research and reviews think this might be the next best option, so I will give it a try. After putting about 6,000 miles on the rear which was mostly paved roads I have retired this to try the K-60's next. These tires handled well with no road noise and great traction. They seem to have a lower profile. Apr 1, 2015
Harlan S: reviews Apr 1, 2015
D M: Reviews, videos, and friends' advice Mar 27, 2015
T M: My Metzeler Tourance was worn out after approximately 8500 miles. Was looking for a new DS tire with little bit more off road
Feb 24, 2015
Kenny C: Availability, reviews, and capabilities of this tire led me to the choice. If I had the time to wait, I may have purchased the Heidenau K60s instead. Contis are great tires - I don't have any reservations about giving them a shot on my next Adventure trips (Big Bend and the Continental Divide from NM through CO to MT and back to TX! Can't wait for the trip! Feb 16, 2015
Doug M: I have heard good things about this tire. Dec 9, 2014
robert b: The TKC 80 is a fabulous tire on my WR250R, wanted to try out the TKC 70 on my new WR250X. Nov 6, 2014
Rob H: Want something a little bit more street oriented (have to face reality), quieter, and better wear than TKC80s on my GSA. Most of my off-road riding is on dry packed dirt anyway, not a lot of mud or sand. Really looking forward to these! Oct 4, 2014
A shopper asked: Hi, is this tire M+S rated? Jan 13, 2015

enrique u: I dont know what MS means.
What I can tell you is that the TKC 70 is the best 50%-50% I ever used.
If your ride is on streat and gravel it is perfect.
It has a great grip in rain.
If you use it in sand or mud it wont work.
Jan 13, 2015
Reply to enrique Good answer? Yes (3) No (0)
TallChief C: To my knowledge, the M+S rating (mud and snow) never applies to motorcycle tires - it is an automotive tire only designation. Generally, if a moto tire has large, deep voids in the tread, such as a knobby style, it will do well in mud. Dual-sport tires like the TKC 70 are biased toward good pavement performance, but will be adequate for up to semi-loose dirt, shallow sand, and small gravel roads without much finesse or work. Anything more challenging and you will be working the bike more and relying on riding technique to not get you stuck.

Snow is a condition I don't think I have read much about or experienced for motorcycling riding, other than ATV bikes, but light slush would probably be handled reasonably by a tire with good wet traction, which this tire is supposed to have.

james c: it is, but don't think you can go to extremes with it,

Vladimir M asked: This summer I'm riding from MN to CO, to ride The Boreas pass and the Monarch pass. I can't seem to decide between the TKC 70 or Karoo 3. I'm leaning towards TKC 70 because of road performance but I'm not if they are aggressive enough for the off-road rides I mentioed. Will the Conti do the job? Mar 26, 2015

Allen K: I installed a set of TKC-70's on a 2008 BMW R1200 GS Adventure. The prior two sets were TKC-80's. Though I only have approximately 1500 miles on the tires the most dramatic difference has been the handling on paved roads particularly in corners. At high speeds the front does tend to wander a bit; not bad unless you plan on riding at 90+. Compared to the Metzler Tourance the TKC-70 feels better planted and inspires confidence in corners. Upright riding feels comparable to any tire with a rounded profile. The obvious difference in performance is in the dirt; the 70, lacking the large square knobs as the 80, does not dig in soft loose conditions. However on fire trails and pack dirt conditions the 70 is right at home. And with the solid paved road performance I have been very happy with the TKC-70! Mar 27, 2015

Duane E N: I have not yet put these tires onto my bike, but they are planned to go on just before a trip to Alaska from MN on my GS Adventure. I looked for a higher mileage tire with more tread for our dirt road journeys. I think they will work well for my use, but an aggressive would be the best for rugged trail use. I'll do a tire update after my June/July trip! Mar 27, 2015

jose luis h asked: Has anyone had any experience with this tire on a Triumph Tiger 800 (roadie)? I currently use the Anakee 3 which is great on paved roads & fairly decent off road, but am looking to try the TKC70 as it is a little more aggressive for taking off road. Dec 30, 2014

Allen K: Hey Jose! I recently installed a set of TKC-70's on a 2008 BMW R1200 GS Adventure. The prior two sets were TKC-80's. Though I only have approximately 300 miles on the tires the most dramatic difference has been the handling on paved roads particularly in corners. Compared to the Metzler Tourance the TKC-70 feels better planted and inspires confidence in corners. Upright riding feels comparable to any tire with a rounded profile.

jose luis h: Thanks Allen! I think I'll give them a try. Most of my riding is paved and the A3s are ok on fire roads but it looks like the Tkc80 is more like the A2, a little more aggressive than the A3. I think the tkc80 will be slightly better than the A3 for my needs. Thanks again. Jan 6, 2015

Curvin B asked: How is performance in the rain/wet roads? Apr 27, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Allen K: Since I live in Southern California there has not been much (any) rain to offer me the opportunity to do any extensive rain rides. However, with the little I have done I can say that the tires gripped well on flat open road as well as in the twisties. Overall I've been very happy with the TKC70. My only complaint is that at higher speeds(85mph+) the front does wander a wee bit. Nothing that is frightening, but indeed noticeable when riding a loaded BMW 1200 GS Adventure. Apr 28, 2015
Reply to Allen Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Dave Y: Wet performance is quite good, borderline excellent... same comments for dry. I have about 3,000 mi on them so far. Previous tire was Michelin Anakee 3's, which were not so good in wet. Having some wear concerns on the front, but had similar issues with the Anakee, so not sure i'd blame the tire - must be bike related? Rear wearing just fine. Have not yet been offroad, but have plans to do so next month. Apr 27, 2015

William N: When I first put the TKC 70s on my KTM 990 Adventure, I experienced the same wobbly front end that others mentioned. It was never dangerous, but noticeable. Glad to say that it has gone away completely with some miles on them. They feel like a good street tire in the dry and wet. They do well in lighter off road use. Very happy with them. Sep 20, 2015

William J: They do pretty good for the most part, just dont push it. I had the front tire slip away a bit on the highway, Of course i was pushing a bit..70MPH in a left hander down I5 into oregon during a downpour. other than that they seem to work pretty darn good. I put 3 thousand miles on them so far and thats the only issue. Apr 27, 2015

Jim j: I found these to be the best all round tire I've used. It preformed excellent on both wet and dry roads riding through Mexico. Very confidence inspiring on my 1200GSA. Swapped the rear for another one at 7000 mikes and I probably could have gotten another 1000! Apr 27, 2015

Vincenzo M: I live in L.A. so I haven't had the chance to test it in the wet yet but so far are doing amazing on and off road. The only "problem", if you can call it a problem is that the bike vibrates quite a lot over 110mph Apr 28, 2015

Vincenzo M: So far 4k and both tires still looks in an amazing shape. I'm not that good off road, I'm learning right now, I did fire's roads and some sand and I felt very comfortable and the bike feels very stable. On the street it's incredible how much you can lean the bike in a curve .
Tires are very quiet at high speed
The only "issue" is that, the front tire, starts wobbling quite a lot over 115-120 mph
So far are te best tires for me

james c: my answer was over 8000 miles on them, but on my BMW 1200 GSWA, 2014, they are were not good on the highway, above 70 mph, the front end would wobble,

on other motorcycles, no problem, I talked to the Continental Rep, and I told them of my problem, she asked, do you have one of those new BMW's, I said yes,

I hope this helps.

Laura O asked: I have TKC70 tires on my 2012 Triumph Tiger 800XC. I've been super happy with them at high speeds on winding paved roads. They've also seemed to preform well off-road (except sand - could have something to do with the rider!) I am new at dual-sport riding - can anyone give advice as to what I tire pressure I should have when I'm riding off-road?? I have friends who ride dirt bikes and they say 15-20psi but that seems way too low since the recommended street pressure for these tires is 40psi. Any help would be appreciated. Oct 17, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Allen K: Hi Laura! Your question is indeed a very good one however it comes with multiple answers. The variables come into play depending on the terrain and bike weight. I am not familiar with the weight specs on the Triumph Tiger, but depending on the bike weight combined with rider and pannier weight, you may start at 32 rear and 28 front. Depending on the terrain you may go lower but you risk the possibility of a flat by pinching the tire against the rim should you run into a rut or rock. Again, you could go lower if you remove the panniers and any other weight. Should you encounter loose aggregate or sandy conditions, you may go lower into the 28 rear and 24 front. My advice would be to carry a mini motorcycle compressor with a pressure gauge and experiment. Take the bike off-road and lower the tire pressure a couple of pounds and feel the effects as you ride. With the larger contact patch you will have more grip but turning/cornering will be sacrificed. When the terrain becomes hardpack or you return to pavement you should air-up as the tire can overheat should you ride too long. Also the turning/cornering will improve once the pressure is back to spec after returning to pavement. Keep in mind that while you can ride off-road with your bike with this tire, it is not a dirt bike. The bike is heavy and the tires are not knobbies as found on the TKC80. A dirt bike will weigh far less, have more suspension travel and have aggressive knobby tires. The TKC70 allows you to venture away from pavement but not too far.

Go Forth And Ride!

Jim j: Not to worry sand is everyone's nemesis! I rode my GS down the baja and through Mainland Mexico and was very happy/impressed with the TKC 70's. I did try different pressures off road and didn't notice much difference in handling. I did the same trip 4 years ago with TCK80's and ran them at 20 pounds riding into Mikes Sky Ranch (SAND!) and it made quite a difference. I think pressure affects the nobbies more. I'll choose the 70's over the 80's any day because of the mileage and on rode performance. Oct 18, 2015

Josh R: I have a '14 BMWr1200gs with these tires. Recommended street pressure is 36 psi, I bring it down to 25 for the sand. Have to run them on the light side off road and very light in the sand. Running street pressure will cause you to washout all over Oct 17, 2015

Brad W: I have mine on a V-Strom 1000 and just run the same pressure on and off road, seems to work fine. You could maybe run down to 35 but I don't think I would go much lower. Oct 17, 2015

A shopper asked: Looking to buy these soon from Revzilla for my Super Tenere. Has anyone out there any clue as to how long these actually last with 90% of the time on pavement, 2-up? Not an aggressive rider, mostly 60 mph avg. , but the off road riding down here in Honduras requires an aggressive grip.. Thanks Aug 25, 2015

Josh R: I've put on a few thousand miles on them, nothing to much. 90% has been on road and some of that has been 2 up and I couldn't tell they were dual sport tires. They are wearing evenly and still have plenty of tire left. I have also gone off road, in both woodlands and desert, the tires hook up way better than I thought being the tire is advertised as a 70/30. Not a knobby tire for sure but hooks up great for what they are. Better than advertised. I will be getting these tires again once I wear though them. This is on a 2014 BMW r1200gs Aug 25, 2015

Mario T: Have them on my BMW GS 1200 Adventure since 03-2015. 5500 miles sofar, all paved roads, no off-road. Excellent grip on road, less noisy than my previous Anakee 3's, they inspire confidence below 60 miles/hr but do produce some vibration in the front end at higher speeds whereas the A 3's were rock solid. At 5500!miles the rear is starting to flatten, the front displays uneven wear on the individual blocks. I would buy them again but will also continue exploring other tires to broaden my experience. Good luck. Aug 25, 2015

Duane E N: I just completed a trip to Alaska, putting about 8500 miles on the tires, a lot of rough pavement, and a fair amount of gravel roads, with a fully loaded BMW R1200GSAw. The tires are pretty much done for at this time, and will be changed out shortly. My partner had Heindau's on, and they held up a bit better, but they aren't radials. Hope that helps! Aug 25, 2015

A shopper asked: Can these tires be run with tubes? Need the 90/90 and 130 x 17 for my KLR 650. Jan 19, 2015

Charles S: Yes. I am running a 90/90-21 on the front of my Husky Terra. Be advised to use plenty of soapy lubricant between the rim and the tire. I didn't and the tire did not seat evenly making for a self-induced humpy ride. Easy fixed by deflating the tire and using dish detergent. It self centered on the rim just fine. Sep 8, 2015

A shopper asked: I have a 2006 Buell Ulysses that I want a more agressive tread for off road and really like the looks of the TKC 70. My rear tire is 180/55R-17 and it doesn't show it in this size. How will a 170/60R-17 compare? Will it work? Dec 6, 2014
