Another highlight is its Vectran Breaker that delivers exceptional resistance against cuts for a more confident ride. Ready for race day, this tyre comes kitted out with a range of ride-enhancing technologies including tubeless ready technology, which makes it an ideal choice of upgrade for competing road, time trial and triathlon events.
Black Chili Compound - With Continental's unique tread compound, which is produced only in Germany, the brand has revolutionised the sport of cycling. With the legendary Black Chili compound it has answered the eternal question of the best balance of grip and rolling resistance for cycling. The latest polymers as well as specially developed carbon black particles and filler materials guarantee unique performance, be it on a road, time trial (TT) or triathlon (Tri) bike.
Vectran Breaker - Vectran is spun from liquid crystal-polymer. This way a thermoplastic, multiple-thread yarn is created. As a comparison: This partially crystalline fabric is more cut-resistant than aramid and its tensile strength is five times higher than that of steel. A Vectran breaker is lighter, more flexible and effective against cuts than a comparable nylon breaker. Without effecting rolling resistance.
Active Compound Technology and Lazer Grip - The revolutionary approach in cycling. Embedded in the tyre construction the Active Comfort Technology (ACT) absorbs vibrations and smoothens your ride. This model's Lazer Grip is designed to make you one with the road. The lazered micro profile structure expands over the tyre’s shoulder and provides outstanding cornering.
Tubeless Ready - Coming complete with tubeless ready technology, the Continental Grand Prix 5000 TT TDF Road Tyre (Limited Ed.) allows you to benefit from tubeless advantages such as the ability to run lower tyre pressures. As a result, you'll notice increased stability, lower rolling resistance and fewer chances of flats or punctures.
