Whether you’re riding as a messenger carrier or riding tours, DuraSkin makes it so your tires go without wearing out. During races, they must endure inclines and declines.

PolyX Breaker - proven technology
Continental's PolyX Breaker features an extremely resistant polyester fiber, woven tightly crosswise. This creates a high fabric density, which not only makes the Breaker more resistant to foreign objects but is also especially resistant to punctures. And while you get added protection, you won’t sacrifice rolling resistance.
