Default Continental, ExtremeContact SPORT tire review -with Motec Data (MotoIQ)

Hey guys,

Check out MotoIQ.com's tire test of the brand new Continental ExtremeContact SPORT -which debut earlier this month:


“Same level dry performance as a Michelin Pilot Super Sport”. That is a HUGE statement by Continental when the PSS is hands down the segment leading benchmark. Continental is extremely proud of their brand new ExtremeContact™ Sport tire that was just released earlier this month as a replacement for their ExtremeContact™ DW tire. We logged nearly a thousand miles on the new Sport in both the wet and dry, and put it up against the outgoing DW in a back to back test at Palm Beach International Raceway to see if it lives up to Continental’s claims.


In the article:

-In-depth analysis of the new (from the ground up) ExtremeContact Sport.
-Street review in the dry and wet.
-Track Test at Palm Beach International Raceway.
-Motec Data overlays back to back testing the Sport with the outgoing DW.
-Subjective Handling reviews.
-Deciphering Continental's product lineup.

Interesting that they both grip better and wear better under extreme use. That's some black magic, there.

To top it off, the 265/35/18 version weighs in at just 24lbs. I loved my ExtremeContact DW's, so it's safe to say I just found my new set of tires.

Interesting. The DW's have been great for road use with some regular twisty canyon runs and lasted me 3 years. But I have 0 track experience so I can't refute your comment.

Read the article. Most OEM-equipped street/track tires have a similar tread design.

I'm sure you're talking about the old DW. Try reading the article. The new DW is a completely different tire that is far more track durable -on the lines of a PSS.

when was the "new dw'" released? i might be referring to the new ones i dunno. this was summer 2015.

i should state that "everyone i know who uses them" consists of about 4 people and its purely based on opinion. but these are ppl i know who track often so i took their word for it. they could be great tires, but i had enough convincing to choose otherwise.

You're thinking of the old ExtremeContact DW.

This NEW ExtremeContact SPORT (not a DW) was released last month - 2/2017 and is a completely different tire. Maybe read the article.... :sigh:
