Conti Roadattack evo 2

Post by Thirdway » Sun Jun 21, 2015 7:42 pm

Anyone tried this newer version ?
Read a few reports that put them ahead of the PR4 on dry roads and not far behind in the wet either.
Probably going to go for PR4s but the better dry handling of the Contis is a temptation.

Didn't get an Evo. They didn't have one in and they're quite a bit dearer than the RA2 I got apparently. I'd used the older normal RA previously, I think I've had 3 and always thought they were good. Any roads the RA2 is just as good, if not better than the older one. We've literally had everything but snow this weekend and it's been excellent. Stupid speeds A roads, single tracks with water washing over them off the mountains, bends with the stone missing and just the shiny tarmac on and it's been rock steady everywhere. We went to Ullapool and round abouts, so anyone who's been fortunate to ride them roads knows what I'm saying. I was probably getting the power on a bit earlier out of bends. If I can squeeze another 500 miles out of this version I'll be pretty chuffed.





In other words, I've ragged the arse off the Mofo and it's been faaahhhooookin ace 8-)

From what I've read they keep their profile well too which I prefer. Despite great handling I think the low down CoG of the SMT doesn't work so well when the tyre starts getting a flat so that's quite important.

The RA2 just have a solid central part of rubber which should make them last longer and they look identical from the back and side profile wise. I've got a Sport on the front. They just work for me, can't fault them.
