Special winter tyre for e-bikes.
Thanks to its non-slip tread pattern and special winter tyre compound, this premium tyre offers a lot of grip on slippery snow and wet-cold surfaces. Developed by Continental's experts especially for e-bikes, the product is a reliable companion through the cold season. Handmade in Germany.
Vectran is a synthetically produced high-tech fibre with a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran is a liquid crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran is spun from the molten liquid polymer Vectra and processed into a multi-fibre yarn. Spider silk as well as Vectran have an enormous tear strength at lowest weight.
The resistance is proven by many applications of Vectran: Holding ropes for astronauts, spinnaker sails, submarine cables, cut-resistant clothing. Vectran can be found wherever extreme durability is required. The Vectran fibre has a tensile strength five times higher than steel, is fatigue-resistant and therefore extremely resilient. Just the right properties to be used in a Continental top tyre as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than comparable nylon breakers without negatively affecting rolling resistance.
The tyres with the Continental ECO logo benefit from over 100 years of experience in the development of mopeds and motorcycle tyres. Optimized and recommended for e-bikes up to 25 km/h, they guarantee low rolling resistance and good puncture protection thanks to their particularly high-quality construction. The durability was especially tested on e-bikes to counteract premature wear caused by the additional driving force. In addition, several models such as the Top CONTACT Winter II Premium have the ECE-R 75 test mark, which also permits use on fast e-bikes up to 50 km/h.
Tyres marked with the dynamo symbol have a special tread pattern in the side wall and are particularly suitable for the use of accompanying dynamos. The dynamo runs more smoothly and does not slip through even in wet conditions. The design of the dynamo knurling can vary depending on the tyre model.
