Title: Continental Trail Attack 2s
Post by: Garththomas on July 14, 2018, 04:09:53 AM
I had hoped to replace the Scorpions with TKC70s but I pnly had a week to do it and the rears werent available from the local distibutor and that went for Shinkos and Avons as well, they were all on back order. So I went for the Trail attack 2s which were in stock.
 So far Im glad I did, the reality of my riding is mostly asphalt with some gravel and occasional dirt and grass. When I bought my X it already had 6,000kms on it so I dont know what the scorpions were like brand new but they werent very confidence inspiring off asphalt and that was why I was hoping for the tkc70s
At first ride the trail attacks felt like they were glued to the ground and I thought, great they are slowing my bike down but as I got used to them I found they are very good on asphalt and much better than the scorpions on gravel. The tread appears more aggresive than the scorpions and the tires feel more solid. I got 22,000kms out of the scorpions so maybe thats why I am so impressed with the continentals but I dont think so.

I've been running mine on the Trail Attacks since new having had them on a previous bike. Like you almost all tarmac but some dry trails. Really great on the road and very good mileage.

I had the trail attack 2ís on my bike for 8000 miles, they had about 2mm tread left when I changed them. I really liked them in the dry and found them particularly good on cold wet roads in the UK. I never went off road with them.
