With Continental’s PolyX Breaker®, the car expertise is brought into the bicycle tyre segment: Polyester has been used successfully for years in car tyres and was tested many times. The extremely resistant polyester fibre is tightly woven crosswise. In this way, a very high fabric density is reached which not only makes the Breaker more resistant to foreign objects but is also especially resistant to punctures. The rolling resistance is not negatively affected by the PolyX Breaker®.
Tyres with DuraSkin® sidewall protection have to be able to roll with the punches. They are used under the harshest conditions. On messenger bikes, the tyres skid along curbs; on touring bikes, they cross continents without wearing out. In racing cycling, they have to endure tough tests such as the Paris-Roubaix. The high-quality polyamide fabric protects the tyre casing against the worst conditions. These tyres stand out thanks to their brown sidewalls.
Continental Premium tyres are made or the highest performance. They use the latest technologies developed with the world’s most successful athletes. The tyres are also handmade by experienced specialists in Korbach, Germany. Only the best materials is used for the highest quality and exceptional properties.
