Continental Ultra Sport III Wire Bead
The Continental Ultra Sport III (Wire Bead) is completely renewed, sporting a dynamic tread pattern design. The road cycling tire matches with a race bike, as well as a classic city road bike.
Advanced New Compound
Based on activated silica compounds, this technology was originally intended as a performance level compound, but after intensive development at Conti's Korbach Research and Development Department Facility, an advanced new compound with outstanding grip and cross-country properties was developed.
This new rubber mix, given the self-explanatory name "PureGrip", is ranked just behind the BlackChili Compound and is being used in Continental Tires' performance products both in the road and mountain bike sectors.
Whilst providing great grip, it is also long-lasting and highly durable - both characteristics of Continental tires, which are exclusively manufactured in their factory in Hefei (Asia).
Suitable for E-Bikes
For Continental's E-Bike tire the trusted company falls back on over 100 years of experience with moped and motorcycle tires.
All of Continental's city/trekking tires are rated to a standard speed of at least 25 km/h. Those tires marked e50 are also certified for S-Pedelecs. With their high-quality structure, puncture protection is high and the rolling resistance is low offering protection from premature wear brought about by the additional driving force.
Completely revised, with a dynamic profile design.
Fits on the race bike, as well as the equipment of the city road bike.
Performance for racing
Reliable puncture protection
Available in a range of dimensions

So i needed a 700x28 for my commuter bike, and tire was perfect. I was worried it would be too slow, as I generally ride 25's on my race bikes, but this was the perfect combination of durability and speed. Great product.
