Continental has launched a new ContiSportAttack 2 into the highly competitive hypersport road tyre market.
 
The ContiSportAttack 2 has been developed to meet the highest expectations in terms of handling and safety. Conti’s design engineers developed the new tyre’s profiles and casing constructions to deliver smooth, progressive handling from upright to maximum lean angles and to have greater precision during high speed manoeuvres.
 
A higher silica content in the new Black Chili tread compound makes the ContiSportAttack 2 safer in wet and cold conditions while also improving tyre life. Also featuring Continuous Compound Technology (CCT), the compound undergoes complex, carefully controlled temperature differences across its width during curing. The single compound then takes on the performance properties of a dual-compound tyre with a stiffer tread centre for increased mileage and better acceleration transfer, and more flexible tread shoulders for increased grip and safety during cornering. Another advantage of CCT is that it eliminates the step change sometimes associated with dual-compound tyres when moving from one compound to the other, giving the ContiSportAttack 2 a more continuous transition feel.
 
Not finished with the tread of the new ContiSportAttack 2, the engineers also utilised Continental’s unique Traction Skin. This is a micro-rough texture of the tread surface of the new tyre that optimises mechanical adhesion and safety and minimises the scrubbing-in process. Traction Skin technology is a result of a new mould coating technology that eliminates the need for tyre release agents.
