The benchmark in puncture protection
Vectran is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran is a liquidcrystalline polymer (LCP) and is spun from the melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed further to a multi-strand thread. Vectran has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight: Exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bicycle tyre as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran Breaker does not adversely affect the rolling resistance.
Fit the GP 4 Season or Top Contact for the ultimate 'under the tread' Vectran protection as they both feature 2 x layers.
