Conti's Fastest, Most Reliable Urban Tire Yet
The Continental Grand Prix Urban 700c Tire combines speed with reliability — the two qualities you want in an urban tire. Much like the Continental Grand Prix race line of tires, the urban version has an extremely fast-rolling tread pattern and tacky rubber for excellent performance on the road.
Conti incorporated their proprietary Black Chili Compound into this tire, which grips the road more than almost any other rubber compound on the market. The Black Chili Compound strikes the balance between speed and grip, providing low rolling resistance while still giving the rider control and confidence on the road.
The Grand Prix Urban only comes in a 35mm width, which may seem a little wide for some speedy city slickers, but we assure you that this extra width greatly aids the tire's performance on bumpy roads and the occasional pothole. Urban roads are hardly ever smooth, and the 35mm width absorbs shock but still allows the tire to roll fast.
Finally, this tire delivers the most desirable quality for any urban commuter — puncture resistance. Conti's proprietary PolyX Breaker puncture protection system blocks debris from damaging the inner tube, but it does not add too much weight to the tire.
