Continental new products 2017
“Handmade in Germany” – with eleven of the eighteen UCI World Tour teams now riding on Continental, more athletes than ever before are trusting in “deutsche Technik” bike tyres from Korbach, Germany. For us this is both a compliment and at the same time incitement to continuously improve our tyres.
Head tucked in, arms straight: speed lovers may well have found their perfect tyre companion with our new Attack & Force III tyre set. Focussing on agility and grip, it will convince both ambitious triathletes and any cycling enthusiast with the ‘aero bug’. Meanwhile gravel bikes become more and more popular, as these true all-rounders are expected to go anywhere and everywhere. That’s why we have the popular Grand Prix 4-Season and the new Speed King CX [32mm] to enable you to ride your bike safely and efficiently in new territory.

As an urban adventurer the new Double Fighter III is a Mountainbike tyre with real versatility. Light rolling and quiet on tarmac, yet grippy on tracks and gravel roads, it is ideal for transforming an off road bike to a nippy city racer.
Both milestone and motivation at the same time. With three production plants, Continental offers choices of quality and price in each segment of the cycle market, tailored to the individual needs. Starting with the Premium tyres from Korbach in Germany, followed by the Performance line for the medium price segment and to the established Sport line. There is one common denominator between all three build levels: being developed and tested in the Continental research and development centre in Korbach.
