I just received mine on Tuesday - no back order from the source I ordered them from (petes superbike). I'm installing them on my new 19/17 wheels tomorrow - lets see how they do...

Its worth the wait since I can still put on a few hundred or a thousand klicks on my current Conti's T/A's.

Cheers,

Loved em. And they did great in the dirt. I was stunned at the traction on and off road

Hi Alon,

I'm looking for the Trail Attack 2 in the 90/90-21(54V) size. It curently comes as OE fitment on the big 2013 KTM's & BMW's.

Just spoke the guy at Petes Superbike. He said they did not receive any stock for the Trail Attack 2 as yet & have an ETA for the 15th of July.

I guess that arrival date must be for the 90/90-21. I mounted my 19/17 setup today and so far I love them - need to scrub the, some more and then hit some twisties :)

Yes it is for the 90/90-21. They're fabulous tires. I'm curious to know how the handling on the 17/19 set up & what rims have you got on?. Are they the rims from Woody's ?
Enjoy the new tires & ride safe

I went with the Alpina 19/17 setup and 110/80-19 and 150/70-17 a d a solute my love the setup. True tubeless and the handling is incredible. I chose the Alpina o et the woodys because I didn't need bomb-proof strength for my street wheels and i didn't want wheels that had to be sealed for tubeless.

I put a 120 19" on front & 170 17" on the rear (Woody wheels.) the bike handles nearly as well as my 690 SM did- it totally transforms the feel of the Adv. The TA2's were very sticky even when new. I've not ridden them off pavement yet.

Hoping to go for a decent length tarmac/gravel ride today - will report back soon but so far, the TA-IIs are very impressive on hot roads.

How many miles do the TA2s last?

I've got 4000 miles on mine and I'm wondering if they can make it to 10000?

I've got about 8K on my back tyre and I'm about to order some new ones, front looks like it needs changing at the same time, still legal but not in great shape, quite worn on the sides.
Grip is still great though.

On tarmac they are like any street racing tire I've ever tried before. Good grip also in tight corners and wet tarmac. Recommended!

On gravel they are WAY better than expected! With lowered pressure (1.7/2.0 bars, normal 2.4/2.9 bars) they had "full grip" in low as well as high speeds (100+ km/h) through both gravel, stony gravel and sandy gravel (!). As long as it's dry! Recommended...

In sand (think beach) they laugh you in the face where you stand. As expected. Not recommended.



Well yes, I tried them in the mud mostly for fun of course. Bike crashed after only a few meters! Well at least I gave it a try! Obviously not recommended!


After 2300 km on the 1190, riding it fairly hard, the back wheel worn maybe 2 mm on the middle. The front looks brand spanking new still!


I have the 1190 EDS and only use for road riding with very small loose dirt if and when encountered.
I have just replaced my Conti Trail Attack 2's, with another set of the same.
I got 12,000KM's wear out of them and they had another 2000 left on them. I like to lean the bike hard where applicable, I got very eaven wear across the whole tyre, i rode it to the edge..
THis tyre sticks so well to the bitumen that I had no reason to replace them with anything else.
In the wet they inspire confidence, I have not had any wiggle or wobble and at the higher speeds no problem at all.
I run the pressures as follows F36 - when hot it gets to 37
R42 this suits my riding syle, I also ride with the preload set at 1 rider and 1 bag and the bike is absolutely planted through every corner.
As soon as I see apex at the corner I accelarate evenly and consistently and leave all bikes behind me... The Vtwin power is just so beautiful that it makes me want to sing a song about it...

Lurve riding my bike...

Hey mate any chance of a photo, I think you may have set a record.
