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 4.6 5 5 5
Great for all wheather, great grip wet or dry... I just did a 4000kms trip with them on a BMW r1200 GS Adventure, through the Mayan route in southern Mexico. They wobble a bit on highways if you speed past 150 km/hr. In wet pavement they work amazingly better than Heidenau, in dirt-mud they offer a great grip. After the trip they still seem to have about 2/3 of life time. March 22, 2015
Good on/off road tire, but.... Much better off-road than Trail Attack 2's. Great street riding too. The grooved pavement on Southern CA freeways is not their friend tho. Tires create a kind of a wobble or shimmy on grooved pavement. Not scary, but not as smooth as TA2's. I've got 500 miles on them now and the wobble seems to be lessening, or I'm getting use to it.

Awesome !! Very nice tire ! Very quiet ! Tread Life no comments yet ! Little too expensive ! Compare to the previous models ! So far happy ! January 26, 2015
TKC 70 : The best adventure tire I had I have a BMW 1200 GS 2013 (water cooled) and ride in Uruguay, South America. I tried the Micheline Anakee3, poor grip on dirt. The Karoo 3, uncomfortable on paviment, poor grip with rain and doesnt last long. Now I have the TKC 70. By far Continental TKC 70 is the best for adventure riding. TKC 70 is great on paviment and has good grip on mauntain trails and dirt roads. It laks of grip when driving on sand or mud. I had them for 600 KM riding on paviment, rain and dirt and performed very well. I think TKC 70 is a great tire for most adventure drivers up to now the best!! Enrique January 3, 2015
Continental New TKC-70 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. 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! January 1, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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
orientation.
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.
Regards
Enrique

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,

I like them after they broke in, but when I went in a wet field, the front end slips some,

I will get another set.

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

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

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

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
