About Road Race Tyres
These tyres are for racing style bikes that use clincher/hooked rims, these are the most common fitment and hook onto the rim and require an inner tube. There is a wide choice of tyres within this category and the right choice is important. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures so getting a balance is extremely important. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI(Threads Per Inch) and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. If durability is your priority and speed is not so important look towards the puncture resistant tyres and consider going for a wider tyre, these will be less prone to punctures and offer a bit more comfort. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice, these use a softer compound on the cornering surface to maximise grip.
About the Continental brand
More than 100 years experience in the development and production of bicycle tyres has made Continental a unique company within the industry. Continental is the only German bicycle tyre manufacturer to produce its tyres in Germany. Knowing this serves as a mighty incentive to our engineers and everyone else involved in the manufacturing process to constantly strive for further innovations. In our technology and development center in Korbach, we are constantly developing new revolutionary technologies such as the unbeatable Black Chili Compound and the ultimate Vectran™ Breaker anti-puncture technology, both used at the top end of race sport. These technologies demand sophisticated processes to ensure our legendary end-product quality, and these innovations as well as the new “ProTection” and ”RaceSport” technology for MTB tyres, can only be manufactured in our factory in Germany – “Handmade in Germany”. In order to offer the best tyre for any application, we rely equally on dialogue with our professional racers, hobby cyclists and everyday bike riders. This results not only in high-end products for top sports applications such as the new Podium TT or the revolutionary downhill tyre “Der Kaiser”, but also tyres for everyday use like the new innovative combination EcoContact/EcoContact Plus as a companion to the latest e-bike trend. As a global player, Continental also maintains high-tech production facilities outside of Germany, where Continental tyres are produced for you with an equal degree of care and dedication. One thing all Continental bicycle tyres have in common is that they are developed in the technology center in Korbach, Germany, where they also undergo strict inspection. Our heart and soul is behind the phrase “Handmade in Germany”, with all of its products and technologies.

Magazine reviews for Continental Ultra Race Folding Road Tyre
Review from Road Cycling UK
Made in the Far East and designed and marketed as a mid-range sporting road tyre, Continental's Ultra Race is offered in a choice of wire or folding bead in both 700x23c and 700x25c formats. We are looking at the probable biggest seller in the shape of the folding bead 23c example, which weighs a claimed 220g. Add 50g for the wire bead, which saves Â£6.
Like its fellows, it features a 60tpi carcass fabric laid up in Conti's multi-layer pattern and has a Safety System anti-puncture belt of tightly-woven Nylon and Kevlar fibres. The result is comfortable, quickish and handily resistant to puncture without challenging race rubber for outright speed.
The tread is Conti's old black natural rubber compound rather than the Black Chili found on the firm's more expensive German-made offerings but is perfectly serviceable, providing the supple, grippy and durable ride for which the original Grand Prix of the 1990s was renowned.
In fact, were the tread pattern the same polygonal block outline rather than the new 'race-orientated' design, it would be hard to distinguish the Ultra Race from its revered ancestor. Which is no mean recommendation.
