The tubular tyre 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!

Jonny Brownlee has been winning World Cup triathlons on them throughout 2012, Chrissie Wellington was also a big fan and all of HTC Columbia's wins were undertaken on them. That's not forgetting Cadel Evans 2011 Tour de France win overall...

In the UK, Rapha Condor JLT swear by them, getting them around the tough Tour Series circuit in safety, as do Madison Genesis, Team UK Youth and Metaltek-Scott.

It is the combination of the 22mm dimpled Black Chili profile, and the reliable construction that keeps all of these athletes coming back for more.

The latest Competition tubular features our Black Chili compound, which 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.

For carbon rim use, please use our Carbon Rim Cement
