Suitable for all road race and time trial applications, the Continental Podium TT has been updated with a featherweight Vectran puncture barrier for reliable race-day performance. Conti's Black Chili rubber compound and 180 TPI casing (three ply) delivers excellent handling in all situations along with a very low weight and rolling resistance. Manufactured in Germany.
While it was conceived as a time trial specific tubular tire, the Podium TT is also very popular with professionals for regular/normal races. The reason for this is its construction. Utilizing the latest Black Chili Compound, this tire, available 22mm and a 25mm width, is not only super fast but its Vectran Breaker offers excellent puncture prevention.
In addition, the 22mm width version of the Podium is lightweight at only 225 grams. A low weight means low rotation energy. The thickness of the tread was reduced to 0.7mm, which is still enough for special race days. The newer 25mm version willl take advantage of the latest generation of wider aero wheels.
