Continental 0100145 Grand Prix Attack/Force Combo TPS-700 x 22/24 Black Tire with Black Chili is for hardcore racers. Front and rear tires have different tasks. Steering and braking forces are transmitted on the front, while the rear transmits the driving forces and bears the majority of the cyclist's weight. Subsequently, the two tires in the Continental tire positioning system (TPS) have been designed differently. Both tires are made with Vectran puncture protection and show wear and tear levels via indicators in the tread, details that show professionals are at work. Both tires are equipped with Black Chili Compound, which is a rubber filler material that provides 30 percent more adhesion to the road, 26 percent lower rolling resistance and five percent improved mileage. Specs: Color - black with black skin foldable; Black Chili - yes; Weight - 400 grams; Recommended PSI - 110; Maximum PSI - 120; PU - 5.

Just changed front Conti Attack tire: installed February 18 and removed on October 3. Got over 5300 miles (with over 220,000 feet of climbing). Plenty of tread remaining but I was starting to worry a bit about the appearance. It's been a bit "hairy" around the edges since installed. The drying and checked appearance of the tread is what made me change, though probably could have extended use to 6k miles.
About flats? Pretty sure I had but two or three in that tire over the distance. Glass, thorns and wire are big here in San Jose. The tire rides well, handles like a dream and is quite quick. Mostly used commuting on city streets, and on weekend country rides.
What tire did I replace it with? Another Conti Attack. Wheels? Zipp 30 w/ alloy rims.
After being somewhat disappointed with the tires that came stock on my mavic sls wheels I started doing research. I was getting a flat every 30-40 miles, which is ridiculous. I needed something that was durable enough to train on and grippy / light enough to race on. These were the result.
The front 22mm and back 23mm makes sense. Not sure if it really makes a difference but I love it. The tires feel grippy in all weather. Rain, snow, mud, I've never had to worry. Even better is that they are super durable. I ride over all sorts of crap - in upstate NY they like to throw down gravel and oil and let the cars beat it down. Cheap, but those rocks are sharp and can puncture tires. I've had zero issues with these. The first flat I get is my notice to get a new set of tires, usually around the 2-3k miles mark.
I'll usually wear them down until the barrier, a sort of Kevlar weave in the tire, starts showing through in spots. The rear tire always goes before the front...
I'm currently living in central Australia (the outback) where the roads are terrible!!! Most of my riding is in the 90-95F and the rare ride at over 110F with road temps hotter than that. Thorns here cause a lot more flats that anywhere else in the world i have ever ridden. After over 2000 miles of this, these are my findings.
Front tire (attack) still has the molding line going down the middle. Other than the rubber getting a rough pattern on it, the tires still look new. After 2K miles, I haven't got a flat yet.
Rear Tire (Force) They still have a lot of life according to the wear markers but I'm now at over 2K miles starting get get some peeling from all the glass I've hit over time.
I'm using Michelin Ultra Light Road tubes on these and they seem to be a great match. I'm still amazed at how well these have held up in the heat and bad roads.
