Continental Sprinter Tubular Road Cycling Tyre


  • Efficient competition tyre which plays to its strengths at criterium and triathlon events.
  • Neutral slick profile for direct road feel and super-fast acceleration.
  • Good puncture protection thanks to SafetySystem anti puncture breaker belt.
  • Excellent grip, high mileage and efficient rolling thanks to BlackChili Compound.
  • Weight - 275g


BlackChili Compound

This unique tread rubber mixture which is only produced in our German factory has revolutionised bicycle tyres.

BlackChili Compound improves rolling resistance by 26 % and provides 30 % more grip than activated silica compounds.

Premium tyres with BlackChili Compound also impress with higher mileage and unlike many multi-compounds, provide a constant ride from the first to the last kilometre.


SafetySystem Breaker

The SafetySystem Breaker is made up of Kevlar reinforced, high-strength nylon fabric. Puncture and cut-resistant but nevertheless light and 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.

Tyres with the SafetySystem Breaker also provide good comfort properties.

Damien Super fast rolling compared to the tufos I was previously using and much lighter too, just hope their as durable, ive only done a couple of hundred k on them but they are a lot more compliant as well, very impressed so far .
Simon Good quality tyre, I use these regularly and they do last well. Note there is no tread they are slicks. Delivery was good
Howard First time with tubular tyres, these were the cheapest I could find. They're easy to fit, are really grippy and fast rolling. My only slight gripe is they look quite skinny fitted, like 23mm tyres.
louis The best all round training/racing tubular for the price. Always perfect construction, always durable. Not the smoothest feeling tubular, but still one of my favourite. I always carry a Sprinter as a spare wherever I ride. I know it will get me home safe.
Mr moon I think the sprinter is the best price/performance tire. So I always use this tire.
