Continental Road Bike Tyres

Continental is a world leader in tyres – today they are one of the top 5 automotive suppliers worldwide. Founded in Hanover, Germany in 1871, they continue to make some of the best road bike tyres on the market and are still proudly handmade in Germany.

 

At Reid Cycles, we stock some of Continental’s best-selling bike tyres: real all-rounders, combining an ideal level of performance with puncture protection and low rolling resistance.

 

The special Continental puncture protection is down to Vectran breakers, a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre. Like spider silk, Vectran is designed to have enormous tear resistance at a very low weight. It is also much more flexible and protects more effectively than its nylon competitors.

 

Another Continental innovation is the advanced BlackChili compound, which decreases rolling resistance. This long lasting rubber tread mixture – made exclusively by Continental in Germany – has revolutionised bike tyres. Great for wet weather, BlackChili improves rolling resistance by 26% and gives 30% more grip than activated silica compounds.

 

These road bike tyres are ideal for roadies and commuters across Australia looking for serious puncture protection without sacrificing speed.

 

Versatile and reliable, we’re confident these will soon become your favourite set of tyres. Check out some of the other brands and great bike tyres (such as Kenda) that we carry.
