About Continental Grand Prix 4-Season Folding Tyre - Unboxed

All season, 4 Seasons... Continental Grand Prix 4-Season Folding Tyre takes them all.

Thanks to its DuraSkin anti-tear fabric, the Grand Prix 4-Season holds up under extreme conditions. In the Paris-Roubaix race, the ‚“Hell of the North", cyclists equipped with DuraSkin enhanced tyres have the fewest tyre related problems during the race. Incorporating a special wear resistant carbon compound, this tyre gives high durability combined with excellent adhesion on wet roads and at low temperatures.

With the 23 mm and 25 mm versions, the Grand Prix 4-Season makes it possible to select the right tyre for various road qualities and comfort requirements. A double VectranBreaker belt under the tread raises the puncture and cut protection to the highest level.

Technologies

DuraSkin- Tyres with DuraSkin sidewall protection have to roll with the punches. These tyres are used in the harshest conditions. On messenger bikes, the tyres skid along curbs, on travel bikes, they cross continents without wearing through and in professional cycling they have to endure tough tests such as Paris-Roubaix.

Vectran Breaker- An innovation in puncture protection. Vectran is spun from Vectra liquid crystal polymer, which results in a thread that is thermoplastic and has multifilaments. This semicristalline material is harder then aramid, has five times higher tensile strength than steel and in addition, is also lighter than comparable nylon thread.Vectran maintains these attributes even in the most adverse weather conditions.
