Continental's Grand Prix Attack is a new breed of race tire. It's specifically designed for the front wheel, using a narrower 22mm contact patch for efficient aerodynamics and precise handling.
The Black Chili compound uses smaller carbon particles which have more contact points for improved grip and the ability to form more easily around imperfections in the road surface for lower rolling resistance. The smaller particles also fit closer together for longer tread life. The Vectran breaker wards of flats but is also supple for less rolling resistance and greater comfort than other puncture resistant barriers.
The Grand Prix Attack Tire is available in 700c x 22mm (22-622 ISO) and features a 3 ply casing for a total of 330 TPI. 110-120 recommended PSI. Claimed weight: 175 grams. Black.
The Grand Prix Attack is designed to be paired with the Force Comp tire on the rear wheel.

Fast and great at gripping road
In combination with a Conti Force on the rear wheel, this tire is one of the best that I have ever tried. I have ridden it for over 500 miles on Zipp 404, didn't have a flat (yet), and from the wear, it looks like one should expect 3000 to 3500 miles. This tire must have low rolling resistance because I have posted very good times in 5 triathlon races. Highly recommended.
