Excellent feel on fire roads in WV mountains! Above average traction in the rain, 2500 miles and tires show very little wear

Great do-it-all tires

I bought a pair of TKC70 for my VFR1200XD to replace stock Scorpions that were gone after 5000 miles. So far after 1000 miles this tires are doing what asked. They have good grip on tarmac both wet and dry. Much better than stock on gravel roads. The front tire gives a little noise that you can only hear below 30 mph.

Great on road, just okay off-road

Just finished a 1450 mile ride through southern Utah and did 100 miles off-road. This tire is a great road tire, but off-road, it would be better for smooth dirt roads, not so much for the rough stuff. These tires don’t handle sand well, but on heavy adventure bikes, what tire really does?

Impressive rain tire

I just returned from a five day adventure riding trip in Ecuador on a V Strom equipped with TKC70 tires. Conditions at altitude were cool and somewhat rainy. The paved roads were in good condition. Stone, paver roads were also in good condition. These tires have outstanding performance especially in the rain so much so that when I get home I am going to remove the new tires on my adventure bike and install the conti's.

Great Adventure tires

These tire are great. Carving up the paved canyons or exploring the forest they do it all. This is my second set of tic 70's. The first set lasted over 4500miles on a 950 Adventure, not bad.

Continental TKC70 Tire Combo

These tires are going on my BMW R100GS. They're replacing my Kenda Big Blocks tires. I am using these tires because they are less of an offroad tire set, yet they will work on gravel roads if I happen to come across them in my journeys.

TKC 70s - Two rear tires per each front tire?

I have just changed out the rear tire on my 2013 Super Tenere' with a second TKC 70. I rode the first one for about 6500 miles but it was becoming too bald for an upcoming 3500-mile trip to BC and back and it was cupping. The front tire is also a TKC 70 and it has about 4750 miles on it but it is also cupping. I would like to get at least 12,000 on that front unit, but I doubt that will happen. The TKC 70s are a good choice for my riding habits, but 90% of my mileage is on pavement. However, when I do get onto the gravel and some dirt, they are a big improvement over the Metzelers that were on the bike when I bought it slightly-used. I think that high inflation pressures are beneficial with the TKC 70s, and I ride with a fairly full load which may be just a bit too far rearward. I think that is why the front tires are cupping because I can feel a slight wobble at high speed which I believe is due to a light front-end, and I am making some adjustments to correct that issue. I will begin travelling with my small tank-panniers and also move my Jesse side-panniers as far forward as possible to reduce rear-end loading while increasing front-end balance-point loading.

A: I am on my 3rd set of TKC-70s. Excellent mileage. 10 k miles for me. Works well on any large ADV bike. Only one complaint front tires where odd. They look like cupping but nothing is felt in bars.
Tubeless tires good stiff sidewall for heavier bikes.
