The ideal choice for fixed gears, single speeds, and urban bikes, the Grand Prix Urban combines a modern profile design with the latest technology. It offers a race-tuned construction while simultaneously damping for comfort—the perfect mix for the urban ride.
With Continental's unique and legendary BlackChili tread compound, produced only in Germany, they have revolutionized the sport of cycling. This compound answers the eternal question of the best balance of grip and rolling resistance for cycling. Regular test wins confirm the measurable and noticeable advantages for cyclists, established in the lab and on the road. The latest polymers, as well as specially developed carbon black particles and filler materials, guarantee ultimate performance.
This tire also offers superior puncture resistance with PolyX Breaker technology, using an extremely resistant polyester fiber in a tightly woven crosswise pattern. The result is a very high fabric density, which makes the Breaker more resistant to foreign objects and especially resistant to punctures, while not affecting rolling resistance.
