Continental continues to advance the performance levels of the adventure touring/dual sport market with the release of the new ultra-high performance Trail Attack 2. Designed specifically for touring riders who demand ultra high performance and mileage from their large capacity adventure touring/enduro machines.
Advanced adventure touring/dual-sport tire for large capacity bikes:
Engineered to meet the demands of today’s modern powerful, high performance adventure touring/enduro machines
0° steel belt construction on the rear tire delivers superior stability and comfort even at high cruising speeds and high loads
Reinforced carcass on the front tire utilizes a newly designed tread pattern to ensure higher precision and optimized wear
Improved touring compound offers high grip in all wet and dry conditions combined with excellent mileage for long trips
Exceptionally quick warm-up time
Stunning new tread pattern adapted from the Conti Attack family
Makes it possible to use a homogeneous grip grading with a single compound thanks to a temperature controlled curing of the tire during the production process
Zenith area, wear resistant for increased mileage
Provides an extremely safe and short tire break-in. This is possible due to the revolutionary raw tread surface, which is the result of a new mold coating technology which eliminates the need for tire-release agents.
120/70ZR19 K 60W TL / 170/60ZR17 K 72W TL - OEM for KTM 1190 Adventure
Excellent traction and long wearing.
This is my third pair of Trail Attacks on my GS. These tires have proven to be high performing and long lasting.
The pair I just replaced were the Trail Attack tires (no number 2 in the name) logging 10K miles before the rear tire wore down to the tire wear indicator. The front tire still had some miles left but was cupping and also exhibited some wallowing at low speed. I replaced the rear with the previous rendition Trail Attack. The front was replaced with the Trail Attack 2. Only time will tell if the "2" will cure the cupping and low speed wallowing.
Most of my riding is on the road with some occasional gravel and hard packed dirt. The tires handle these situations easily. I can't vouch for any serious off road riding but I rather doubt they are appropriate for the task.

Great Road Biased Adventure Touring Tires
I have run nearly all dual sport/adventure touring tires on the market between a KLR 650 and DL 650 in the past ten years. For road use the original Trail Attacks were my go-to tire. This is my first experience with the Trail Attack 2 and they offer phenomenal grip and feedback, I've yet to have any movement when pushed at a brisk pace. They require next to no scuffing in period, warm up quickly on cold mornings and inspire more confidence than the original Trail Attacks. They also work reasonably well on fire roads if the tires are aired down and you're realistic with your expectations of a 500 lb top heavy bike in the dirt.
The original Trail Attack tires tend to get a little slippery in the last few hundred miles or their life when wearing out, nothing major but I wait to see if these do the same. That would be my only complaint running through five sets of the originals. I can live with a tire getting slippery in the last 500 miles considering I get around 8000-9000 out of a set.

Amazing street tires, no break-in, quite good on gravel!
These tires came standard on my new R1200GS, and I thought I would have to get rid of them right away. To no surprise they have been proven to be super fun, sticky tires on good pavement. However I did about 400 Miles of gravel on a trip through Montana and Idaho and they performed similarly to my friend's Heidenau K60's! I will say that they have no discernible grip in mud! Very tricky there.
They are wearing a bit faster than I would have liked, I expect I will get somewhere about 7-9000 miles.

E R: I use this tire on a ktm 1190 adventure R: I really like the grip on this tire, They do not last as long as i wished they did (im a very aggressive rider) but i do feel safe at high speeds ( cornering 150/190 kph) . My old conti attack 2 tires have 3500 kilometers on them; They still has about 20% life left but i sliced the side wall on a dirt road. ( i have a set of tkc80 for off road )Jul 21, 2014
John R: Low cost tire that had good reviews from users.Apr 7, 2014
Terry M: Better choice for roads in my area.Feb 14, 2014
James M: I had read these are excellent street tires in terms fo wear and handling with light off road capability. This describes what I wanted in a tire. So far I am very pleased. The tires are round requiring minimal balance weights. The road grip is excellent and confidence inspiring. I'll need more miles before judging the durability.Dec 16, 2013
A shopper asked:Hey, I wanted to get these tires for my Duke 690 2008. Previously I've just been using diablo corsa tires but would like to get a good set of dual sport tires for it, mostly for long distance road use and a little bit for fire trails, but very seldom. What would you suggest?Jan 31, 2014
Ronald W:These are excellent tires for my loaded, 2-up R1200GS Adventure. 95% of my riding is on-road with my wife on the back. Fully loaded I have a real 8k on my rear Conti 2. This compares with 6K on Anakee 2's, about 6k on Torrance(non EXP). Conti is the best wearing and quietest tire of this group, provides an excellent grip dry or wet. My next choice is the Torrance. I went to Alaska 2 up and needed a rear tire @7k. Tire was shot. EXP was done @4.5k. Anakee 2 is a good tire, not up to the Torrance or Conti in regards to handling. Anakee 2 is too load for my riding.Feb 3, 2014
Kenneth B:Yes, these are a great set of tires for the riding you described. Perfect for all weather on road and a great handler on packed and semi-loose fire trails. Gravel can be hairy but I think that's with all tires; stand up for more stability!
I am on my second set. My first set lasted about 18,000 miles and could have gone more. I wanted a fresh set going into winter.
I have always been a fan of Continental tires going back to my mountain bike days. They make great lasting tires.
They shouldn't disappoint you. Enjoy your ride!Jan 31, 2014
Michael S:I put a set on my Suzuki V-Strom 1000 in July 2013. Put about 5000 miles on them including a 3K mile trip from Kansas to western Montana. Mostly 2 lane paved roads but did a few short fire roads and they held up great. Just starting to get a flat spot but I suspect they will last at least 8k miles. Handling is much better than the original Dunlops the bike came with. Grip and cornering are much improved as well. Will buy the same tires when these wear out.Feb 2, 2014
Scott L:The Trail Attack 2 is just the later version. I don't know all the technical changes, but the first version, front tire would often cause a wobble as it wore in. I have not had that problem with any TA 2s I've had, but definitely did with the first version.Jun 26, 2014
Dennis M:I have no experience with a Trail Attack tire. The ones on my bike are Trail Attack 2 Z. Had to go look at them. All I can say is I just made 3k to Arizona, Rode US191 from Alpine to Morinci and back. Rode NM 152 NM15 and NM35 through Gila NF. They were fantastic.Jun 26, 2014
