Continental TravelContact DuraSkin 26" Touring Tyre -
You can’t develop a tyre for globetrotters on the drawing board, so that is why all of Tilmann Waldthaler’s experience has been put to use in the development of the Continental TravelContact DuraSkin 26" Touring Tyre. His requirements were obvious: a robust carcass with a high carrying capacity and protection against chafing and cuts, effective puncture resistance and last but not least, a tread that makes it possible to explore paths around the world quickly and safely. A foldable version is of course also available to take along as a spare. The TravelContact is ideal for touring all kinds of routes.
To make these tyres ultra durable Continental have doubled up on the puncture protection with SafetySystem and DuraSkin. SafetySystem Breaker is made up of Kevlar-reinforced, high-strength nylon fabric. Puncture and cut-resistant but nevertheless light and fl flexible, the tyre adjusts quickly to the surface below. Without raising the weight or rolling resistance noticeably, it protects the carcass against foreign objects and contributes to a longer lifespan of the tyre. While the DuraSkin sidewall protection have to be able to roll with the punches. They are used under the harshest conditions. On messenger bikes, the tyres skid along curbs; on touring bikes, they cross continents without wearing out. In racing cycling, they have to endure tough tests such as the Paris-Roubaix. The high-quality polyamide fabric protects the tyre casing against the worst conditions. These tyres stand out thanks to their brown sidewalls.
