Continental // Building an Enduro Game Changer
For many years now, Continental have been pushing the boundaries of tyre technology, innovative designs and excelling performance. Development of their new 27.5 range to cater for all riders in all disciplines they are at the fore front of keeping you planted when you ride. Supporting teams all over the world and resulting in plenty of top level accomplishments, they are able to design rubber that not just works for the best but tested and developed by them also.
The past 2 years Continental have been also developing a UK based Enduro team to tackle the World & National series. This year getting on board with Saracen, Shimano, Mavic, Marzocchi and more, they have built up one stunning machine.
