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 usability of a slightly more street-oriented design has been improved and is apparent with the TKC 70. An ideal ADV Tire choice for larger displacement bikes like the KTM 1190 Adventure, the Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200, the BMW R1200GSW, the Suzuki V-Strom 1000, the Yamaha Super Tenere and other similar models. 


  • Provides a high level of grip in all wet and dry conditions
  • Equally at home on light trail work as they are on slab
  • Excellent mileage for long trips on asphalt
  • Quiet high-speed stability due to the central band on the rear tire
  • Aggressive siping and self-cleaning grooves add to the all-weather prowess
  • Ideal ADV Tire choice for larger displacement bikes

Continental TKC 70 Tires 3.8 5 57 57
Great tires, great service! My TKC70's arrived in less than 24 hours! Went on really easy - and didn't even need balancing on the rear, as were spot on. However, there isn't a signature mark on these tires indicating their heavy spot - but, when balancing, they really didn't need it. :) Definitely buy these if you're a 60/40 road/offroad rider - well worth it!

Bad Vibration from front tire The front tire made my Super Tenere vibrate horribly. The faster I went the worse it got. After 60mph I was afraid to use the front brake. I had to replace it after 500 miles. Revzilla took good care of me with the replacement process! The rear tire works fine. I only have the 500 miles on it so I can't comment on tire life yet but it worked fine on the highway, on canyon roads and on jeep trails. August 18, 2016
Just Plain Dangerous on 2004-2012 R1200GS I've had 5 sets of Tourance on my 2008 GS, and I thought I'd look for something with better off-road performance. The TKC 70 has that, but the on-road manners are so bad that I consider it unacceptable. The front, due to the dual-hardness compound, wears so that most of the pressure is on the center row of blocks. Lighten the front end at over 75 with throttle, passing or into a headwind, and the side blocks completely unload and you have almost no steering. The head will start to wave side-to-side and you feel trouble coming. I'm glad I went back to Tourance for my trip to Germany, they were like a locomotive on the Autobahn. The TKC 70 fornt is also louder than a TKC 80 or an Anakee Wild. Not a knobby rumble but a semi truck whine. The newer GS's with wider tires seem to do better, and the TKC 70 rear is much better than the front. I may try a TKC 70 in back, and switch between a Tourance or an Anakee Wild in front, depending on what I'm doing. July 29, 2016
Best adventure tired The TKC70 does well on the road in all conditions and is acceptable for moderate off road use. This my fourth set. July 26, 2016
Great so far! I've only put about 1400 miles on them so far, but it was a trip to Arkansas. They have excellent grip all the way to the edge. No chicken strips on the rear and almost none left on the front. We were on open roads, so the lean angles represented respectable speeds. Knock on wood, I've not had any of the front end wobble I have read about. I have also not ridden with them in the rain yet so wet traction and tread life I left blank. Four stars since I don't have enough wear on them to vouch for tread life. I would recommend. July 16, 2016
Better on highway than off The TKC 70s were installed on my '09 R1200 GSA and to date have run over 10k with slight wear just starting to show on the front. They run smooth and quiet on the highway but do not like any kind of lines, cracks, or grooves running parallel with your direction of travel. Constantly feels like you will thrown from the bike at any given moment. Have been riding the fire roads in the Medicine Bow range in WY and they do not like loose gravel at all. 10k and no rain so can't report on wet traction. In short: if you're looking for off pavement tires, look further. If you want some great wearing highway tires with the occasional off road, these are a great value. July 15, 2016
Good tires, questionable on grooved pavement I put a set of these TKC70s on my 2009 R1200GS. I wanted a tire that was better suited to fireroads than the Tourance EXPs that were on it. The tires are typical Continental quality: well-made, average price, etc. Hopefully they will last longer on my GS that the set of TKC80s I had a couple years ago. I've only got about 1,000 miles on them so the jury is out about tread life. They work fine in the rain. My only question about these tires is how they react to grooved pavement. We don't have a lot of it here in NC, but on sections of highway that are grooved, the tires tend to wander. They remind me of the ancient Metzler ME33 Lazers I had on an airhead years ago. My best guess is that I need to play with the tire pressure to get rid of this sensation. Anyhow, I recommend the TKC70s. The only caveat is if you have to deal with a lot of grooved pavement. Then I'd pass. June 14, 2016
Excellent tire for BMW 1200GSA I've been running this tire for about 15,000 miles now on a 2014 BMW 1200 GS Adventure. I've used them on all types of conditions: 100+ MPH fully loaded with gear, Superstition sand dunes, Pismo beach, Utah dirt roads, mud, rain, single track trails, basically every street and dirt condition imaginable. These are great tires. They are quiet, excellent street grip, and have enough dirt capability for most situations. Yes, they pack up with mud but that is like 0.1% of my riding. Hard pack they are great. Soft sand, they lack the bite of a full knob to get underway, but they work well enough to get moving even fully loaded with camping gear. About 5000 miles out of a rear, and double that for a front. I am not easy on tires and ride aggressively, so I'm happy with the mileage. When I first purchased, there was a slight wiggle in the front at high speed. That went away after a hundred miles. Nothing even remotely dangerous even at 100MPH, just a slight weaving, that is now gone. Either that or I'm so used to it my brain doesn't register it anymore. The Anakee 3 (stock tires) had no bite on soft sand and couldn't get the bike moving. Good street tire, but only for hard pack fire roads. The Karoo 3 is very noisy on the road. Only got 2000 miles out of the rear. The turn-in was very strange for the first 500 miles and took a long time to get used to. The TKC70 felt normal out of the box with no strangeness. May 27, 2016
