I recently installed a pair of Conti Sport Attack 3, and really love them for canyon riding. They feel like they have a little softer carcass than the original tires. Steering is very neutral and a tad quicker than the S21 imho. And I like the fact that the compound change is gradual instead of three strips side by side.
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Sure, I also like the plush feel of the a tire with softer carcass, but I am also keen to experience the benefits in feel of a stiffer one on the track.</p>
I have to say with the narrow rear tire the number of options for so called hypersport tires for the Vitpilen is limited. On my list there are the s22 as a solid choice and the conti sport attack 4 as an equivalent variant.
But I am also thinking about the Dunlop Sportsmart TT for maximum track performance knowing that confidence on wet roads will shrink to an even lower level than before. :/
Would love to read more about your experience on tires for the Vitpilen!
