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. 

Features:

  • 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
  • Eligible for Continental's free 3 year roadside warranty

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.

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.

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!!

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!

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!

Compromise
I just completed a 3,200 trip on the TKC-70 tires (front and rear) on my 2014 R1200GS. The trip was almost entirely on-pavement with some gravel sections. Previous tires were a TKC-80 Twinduro front and a Heidenau K60 Scout Rear (yes, the 150 width fits the rim), but those were worn and I wanted to put on a rear tire that was the correct size that would deal with a longer trip on pavement. I did long stretches of grooved concrete interstate travel on the new TKC-70. For the first 300-500 miles the tires tracked the grooves quite a bit, but I maintained interstate speed at 75-80 MPH. After 500 miles the tracking was less, although it was still noticeable, but I was able to confidently pass other vehicles while riding speeds that sometimes were over 90 MPH to make a pass. I've certainly had tires that were worse with respect to tracking grooves. The tires performed well on hard-packed gravel roads. The tires also performed well in the rain and in turns. Only issue was the tracking of grooves on concrete interstates while riding 75 MPH or more during the first 500 miles. The tires did very well on curvy asphalt roads around Glacier National Park and were more fun to ride on curvy asphalt than the TKC-80. After 1,000 miles, the tire started to feel very comfortable in all conditions and the tracking was almost unnoticeable even on grooved pavement at speeds over 80 MPH.

I read several reviews of the TKC-70 that mention "head shake." I've owned four BMW motorcycles (R100; R1200RT; F650GS; R1200Gs). In my opinion, the newer R1200GS can be susceptible to "head shake" regardless of the tire you put on it because of aerodynamic issues that can be created when you ride a tall, relatively light weight, off-road styled bike laden with non-OEM accessories at fast speeds on an interstate -- passing trucks, winds, and the road are going to move you around. If you mostly ride grooved freeways at 80 MPH, this may not be your tire (and the GS may not be your bike). This tire does nothing exceptional and is a competent "all arounder," which is what I wanted for this trip.

After 3,200 miles, I predict that the rear would reach 6,000 miles and the front would also reach about 6,000-8,000 miles (maybe more). At my next service, I will likely put the TKC-80 Twinduro back on the front and keep the TKC-70 on the rear until I find the holy grail -- a rear option that lasts longer, rides smoother, and has more grip.

First - You should know, I'm a Heidenau guy
I bought these because my summer plans are all tarmac based and thought I would try these out. I have been very happy with my Heidi's. They are stable and predictable. The TKC 70's are good and bad. The rounded profile makes them quicker and easier to turn in. The ride is smoother than the Heidis, however then is an instability in the front that doesn't seem dangerous or frightening but doesn't give me CONFIDENCE that the Heidis do. Just running 75-80mph on the Interstate it sometimes feels like the front is light and skating. Thinking about putting the Heidi front back on for my Summer adventure. I recommended these tires because I think these will be favored by certain types of riders. Me? I am really hoping they start making the K60 Scout in the proper size for my 14 R1200GSA.

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.

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.

Tkc 70 track day
I purchased the set of TKC 70's because I was looking for a more road tire than off road. Anyway I recently completed a street riding class at Sonoma Raceway by Reg Pridmoore, great class, so we were on the track for about 130 miles that day really putting the bike through all it could handle and the tires were not the limiting factor! Great grip and handling they didn't get chewed up on the track and I ran them to the edge of the tread. I'm very pleased with this choice. On the freeway around here they tend to drift a bit on the grooved concrete, and I haven't rode in the rain yet so not sure how they handle wet. Haven't taken them off road either that's why I went with more street tire. I have great confidence with this tire, and I think it's going to be a good choice for my summer riding adventures. Hope this helps.
