It should be no surprise that your front and rear tires serve different roles on the bike. All you need to do is see the differences in their respective wear pattern and wear rates. With that fact in mind, the Continental Grand Prix Attack Clincher Tire is a front-specific tire built to offer maximum cornering traction.
Like their GP 4000s, it uses Continental's Black Chili rubber compound. The special compound increases tread flexibility to ensure road-hugging compliance. This extra grip will give you the confidence to drive the bike deeper into corners, allowing faster exits. Get yourself off the front of your local criterium, and this tire will help you stay there. This flexibility gives the tire better rebound over irregularities in the road surface, reducing rolling resistance as well. The nano-sized Black Chili particles effectively "fill" the voids naturally inherent in typical rubbers to increase the amount of rubber in the contact patch of the tire. This reduces tire wear at the same time it aids traction.
The Continental Attack Front Tire is slightly narrower than its Force rear counterpart. At 22mm it gives you an ideal balance between traction and aerodynamics. Its dynamic siped tread pattern is front-specific. It has a Vectran layer sandwiched in place between the tread and the 330tpi casing for added flat resistance.
