Continental bike tyres have been adapted to cope with many different situations and the team is always working on new iterations which up the ante in an increasingly competitive area of the market. Continental mountain bike tyres range from classic cross country and trail to full on downhill options which are designed to take serious punishment and help riders grope their way through mud and gravel. You can even get tyres designed for ice and snow which have special spikes for added grip and bite on slippery surfaces.
Continental road bike tyres run the gamut from sporty slicks designed to help fitness fans keep in shape to racing specification freewheelers which go above and beyond what most triathletes would expect from their tyres. They have produced tyres designed for use on indoor tracks in Olympic conditions, so there is little need to question their credentials.
With Continental tyres bikes can give the rider the confidence boost they need and if your stock kit is in need of an upgrade then its range is worth considering. For riders who will more usually be tackling the daily commute there are city and touring oriented tyres which have added protection against punctures and even safety systems to keep you on the right track. Even the particularly specialised Cyclo Cross market is covered by its products, so if skin tight suits and flying mud sound like your idea of fun then Continental can continue to support you in all of your off-road cycling endeavours.
