The tubular tire of pro road racers and triathletes.
Each year, Continental gets requests from ProTour teams and professional triathletes for sponsorship. They all want the same thing...Continental Competition tubulars!
Recently, Simon Gerrans of Orica-GreenEdge won this year's Liege-Bastogne-Liege and wore the yellow jersey at the 2013 Tour de France. Our tyres are again at the forefront on the UCI ProTour. Add these wins to the fantastic achievements of Jonny and Alistair Brownlee in winning triathlon gold at the London Olympics 2012, Commonwealth Games 2014 and the World Triathlon Championships in 2013.
It is the combination of the dimpled BlackChili profile, and the reliable construction that keeps all of these athletes coming back for more.
The BlackChili compound increases grip whilst lowering rolling resistance without affecting wear - truly phenomenal!
One layer of the cut resistant Vectran under the tread instead of the previous two nylon breakers reduces weight and improves rolling resistance and rolling comfort. The German manufacturing process of the Competition hasn't changed. As previously, the worlds best pros only trust the handmade production of our seamstress team and our production staff in Korbach.
