Continental Twinduro TKC80 Dual Sport Tires 4.5 5 62 62
Great 60/40 tire For an aggressive big bike, big block tire I love the TKC. Provides great off-road abilities and is predictable on-road. It doesn't have a long life but it is a great 60/40 tire that offers confidence on or off road. July 28, 2014
Great fit for so many bikes This is a great tire for so many applications. For such an aggressive tread, you can still smoothly lean the tire over on pavement at speed with very little loss of control and it stays smooth. Awesome tire, supposed to last a long time, and goes from highway speed to instantly chewing dirt on trail. A true dual sport tire. July 15, 2014
Great product All and all this is a do anything tire, That wears quite well July 7, 2014
Better on and off road than many 80/20 tires I'm very impressed with these, after about 200 miles on dirt roads and about 800 miles on pavement. These handle very well on roads, and are obviously very good on loose gravel roads or trails. I prefer these on pavement to many "80/20" tires with less aggressive treads. July 7, 2014
2006 Ulysses XB12 I was hesitant to pull the trigger on these, but after 2000 miles I have to say all doubts were erased. I ride 60% slab and 40% on improved fire roads and gravel roads on my everyday commute. I wanted something that was better in gravel. They take some getting used to on pavement; a little noisy and the front has a bit of a rumble in corners. After a couple hundred miles they settle down(or maybe I just got used to it). They are amazing in gravel, I mean they really stick and the front never wants to wash out, even in corners. Pros: They look amazing. Really changes the look of the bike that was always somewhere in between a regular XB and a real ADV bike. I get a lot of compliments on it now. Very confidence inspiring off road. Haven't been in mud yet. Decent in wet grass. They don't look like it, but they corner just fine on wet pavement. I ride a lot in the rain and have had no slips, even at intersections. Minimal vibrations; confident at 75mph and cornering. Cons: The rear does wear fast. I've heard it wears quickly at first and then settles down. We'll see. Keep in mind, the knobbies on these are way bigger than they look in the photos, so it's noticeable when they wear down even a little bit. They take some getting used to. You won't feel like you're on a rail like you do with Sync's, Trails, or Angels. Overall Be honest with your riding style. If you are 60/40 or want to be, spend the extra coin and get them. You'll probably jump to 50/50. I wouldn't get them if I was mostly pavement due to the cost and wear issues. Though if price wasn't a factor I would purchase purely on looks alone. They really do change the look of a Uly. It's a great tire and is worth getting at least once. June 23, 2014
Great 50/50 Tire 1500 miles of on and off road adventure riding in Tenn. Great on road. Hard to tell you are riding on knobby tires when of pavement. Great off road traction and handling. Front tire shows no noticeable wear. Rear is about 1/4 of tread worn. I expect to get 3000 to 4000 mile on rear and twice that on front. Off road performance makes short tread life worth it. Original equipment Dunlops sucked off road and lasted only 1200 miles. Continentals are huge improvement over factory tires. June 12, 2014
Good combination tire for dirt and street My dirt riding is off pavement, but not offroad - lots of fire/jeep roads in the desert, but very little trail/single track. I bought these because I also ride the pavement out to where it ends. For tires with knobs, these handle very well on the street, run smooth, good grip even in the corners. For tires that have big, wide, street-friendly knobs, they dig in well in the dirt and keep me moving and stable where the factory tires on my Yamaha wr250x didn't. These are one of the few tires with any dirt capability that came in the right 17-inch size for my wr250x. June 2, 2014
Great grip, short tread life, rear punctures The front tire has been on my KTM 1190 Adventure for just over 5,000 miles and still has some life left. The rear lasted 2,500 and received 4 punctures. Of the 2,500 miles, about 35% was on dirt roads. The rock punctures happened between 2,000 and 2,500 miles when the tread was pretty diminished. There is a lot of casing exposed between the treads especially when they wear down on the 170/60-17's my bike takes. May 27, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Robert T: Great tires off road and surprisingly good on road. The only shortcoming is that the rear tire is good for a maximum of 2,500 to 3,000 miles at the very most the way I ride. I travel at highway speeds loaded with camping gear for over 600 miles to go and come from where I ride and camp whenever I make a weekend trip . It looks like the front TKC 80 will get close to 9,000 miles. Jul 29, 2014
E R: bought them to have an off road set of tires for my 2014 ktm 1190 adventure R. Great grip off-road very poor grip off road! ( i ride aggressive ) Jul 21, 2014
Thomas B: Couldn't get a Heidenau front tire for my Honda NC700XD so opted for the TKC-80 front to go with the Heidenau rear. The TKC-80 is softer and doesn't last as long as the Heidenau, but on the front should last quite long enough. The tread on the TKC-80 is good for my intended purpose of gravel roads. Jul 21, 2014
Allen M: Other adventure riders recommended this tire. Jul 19, 2014
Jose V: These tires are the only true duel sport made for the WR250X rims. Jul 17, 2014
Eldrick A: For me the optimal mix of grip on/off road and decent mileage (on the front anyway). 990cc's tend to shred the rear in semi-short order. Jul 11, 2014
fou d: have not found anything else similar for my MTS 1200.

Kristen T: The TKC's are currently the only offroad tires for the BMW R1200GSW (new watercooled models) in the factory sizes 120 front, 170 rear. They also have a softer compound which wears quickly, but also have excellent grip on the road. I'd rather replace the tires regularly than crash. May 19, 2014

Darrin B: Running them on my gs1200a and loving them. They wear out quickly, but unmatched for my style of offroad riding coupled with predictable on road traction. Dec 29, 2013
Barry R: I put these on my F800GS and the off-road traction is superb, I rode the length of Baja and never worried about traction when riding off-road. I just wish they lasted longer. But for now I love the way my bike can go anywhere with these tires. Dec 23, 2013

A shopper asked: I have a Triumph tiger 800XC. The owners handbook says I need a tube type tire. I'm interested in the Heidenau K60 scouts. Do you have these for my bike? Nov 15, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (2) No (0)
Jason R: I had a 800gs and ran the K60 scouts on the rear and the TKC 80's on the front. It was a great combo! I got almost 12000 out of the scouts and the TKC's really bite where I needed it off-road. At real slow speeds (like putting in traffic to get to a traffic light) the scouts can feel a little weird and wiggly, but I found this to be pretty normal. I have a friend that has the tiger 800xc and did the exact same thing and he loved both tires. I will do the same for my new Yamaha Super Tenere. You can't go wrong with this combo. Nov 17, 2013

Josh K asked: Do Conti TKC80 tires come in a Tube Type version? I only see a 90/90-21 TL 54T listed on your website? Can a tube be placed in a tubeless style tire? Apr 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Keith M: Funny you ask. I carry a tube with me even though these are tubeless tires because one of the service guy's at Bob's BMW suggested I do this several years ago prior to a trip across Labrador during which I bent a front wheel and it would not hold air. The tube saved my trip and ran for another four thousand miles without vibration or problem until I got the wheel straightened at Woodie's in Denver. I always carry tubes when traveling to remote places with tubeless tires. I'm not sure how I will use them on the new GSW wheels though as the valves are in a funny location. Apr 9, 2014

Stuart H: I use the tubeless type on my KTM with tubes, and have done so for years . Only a few spoked wheels out there factory made for tubeless applications (BMW and I think the Aprilia Capo Nord, and I think both rims are made by Behr). Would not recommend going the other way- using a non-tubeless tire for tubeless but using a tube on a tubeless tire no worries. Apr 9, 2014
Reply to Stuart Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Andrew G: Even if tubeless you can still throw a tube in it. My F800GS has the 90/90-21 on it right now with tube in it. Apr 24, 2014

Stuart H: KTM 990 ADV. TKC-80's getting 2500-4000 miles on rear depending on how "sporty" I get in rocky terrain. 5000 on fronts. Fronts cup after 3000 if you don't keep the pressures at recommended levels. They're fun and versatile. Not noisy or too vibrational. Still my go-to choice. Nov 8, 2013

Mark K: I have a KTM 990 Adventure

I've put about 1500 highway miles on my Conti TKC 80's they haven't worn that well, but I've put about 500 miles of Trail Riding on them....they've been great!

It really depends what you plan on doing with them.

Roger Z: About 4500 miles is what I got on the Conti...that being said 2200 of that was pavement. It was just at the wear bar and could have run probably another 800 to 1000 safely. I don't wait until the last minute to change. Nov 3, 2013

A shopper asked: Looking to put this on my NC700X. But the back tire is 160/60zr17. What would be the best fit given the lack of an exact match? Jul 15, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Stuart H: If it were me I'd go with the 150 rear and not the 170. You won't have to worry about fitment and it's nice to go a tad smaller in the rear so you can get the tire spinning quicker when needed (off road that is). a 170 rear tire off road is pretty monstrous. Dirt bike tires rarely exceed 120. Your bike isn't heavier than a 1200GS and they spec 150 for their rear if I recall correctly. My KTM 990 also specs a 150 rear and I've been toying with going 140. They are a nice handling tire off and off piste so have fun! Keep slightly less pressure in them if off road for long stints. Proper tire pressure is key to longevity in the TKC. Jul 15, 2014

jason d: You would need to measure the clearance to your fender. If you have 3/4" get the closest size down. You'll need it if you happen to encounder mud. Unexpectedly it does happen. Last thing you need is a jammed up wheel and a wreck. That said these wear exceptionally well. I rode 3200 miles from Phoenix to Madison wi in May. Half off road the rest on the interstate or state hwy. They are still about 65% rear and 75% front. This on fully loadrd bmw f650gs so similar weight. Jul 16, 2014

A shopper asked: I live off the grid and have to travel a 5 mile rough gravel road to hit blacktop. My street tires weren't cutting it so I put the Continental Twinduro TKC80 on my Honda VFR800. The tire's air pressure specs say 35psi for the rear tire. Honda bike specs say 42psi/rear, however that's for a street tire. Any suggestions on what to air the TKC80 at? Front tire psi is close enough: 35 per tire and 36 per Honda specs. May 28, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Stuart H: Follow the tire manufacturer's advice. I have used TKC-80's exclusively for years and they hold up well at recommended pressure. Tendency is to run them low off road, but since you're on and off going in to town then you probably aren't airing them down anyhow. The tires cup if under-inflated on a constant basis. Front TKC has a higher pressure rating, so I usually back off 3-4 pounds from recommended and call it good. I live in AZ and the pavement can get hot, so that gives me a little cushion. 32R and 36F. Will drop them down to as low as 25R and 29F if I'm going to be off road for a long stint. The front TKC will get you to 5000 miles with no problem. As for the rear, I get anywhere between 2800 and 4000 depending on how sharp the terrain off road is and how much fun my wrist is having... May 28, 2014

Keith M: I ride specification inflation on TKC80s on the road and drop to 26 psi front and 28 psi rear for off road riding. This works well for me on a 2014 R1200GS with gear. I also run the 26/28 psi on the paved sections (up to 80 miles) as well so I don't have to switch back and forth with my air pump. May 28, 2014

Chris Van M: Yes if you have the rim size that they sell. Also be careful with the width. These are for the bigger bikes with wider swing arms. So measure the width of the swing arm up front, check to see if it will clear your chain, and not be too wide for your rim. Apr 15, 2014

A shopper asked: What size should I select for my KTM 500EXC? Oct 7, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Stuart H: I think you only have the one option for the front if you're running a 21" front rim. For the rear, I'd opt for the 120 on the width. A 140 MIGHT fit in there, but your lack of horsepower (vs a 690 or 990 KTM) may have a hard time getting the 140 spinning the way you're used to off road. The TKC will likely be heavier than a dirt tire as well. Plus, an OEM dirt bike rim may do funny things to the 140 anyway. I'd guess you usually run a 110 rear for a normal dirt tire. You'll lose some height on the TKC's vs dirt tires too. Please post your review of the tire as I've always wondered how the TKC would be on a small dual sport rig. My guess is you'll have an all new appreciation for what your 530 can do. Oct 8, 2013
