The Continental Grand Sport Light Clincher Folding Tyre is part of the Grand Sport family build on a solid 60 TPI casing, NyTech breaker and the durable and super grippy PureGrip tread compound. Conti have designed each tyre for a particular use. The Grand Sport Light, in contrast, to the Extra and the Race versions, has been designed as a competitive tyre, the reduced PureGrip compound saves weight, but at the cost of longevity. A good level of puncture protection is provided by the NyTech Breaker.
Continental's NyTech Puncture Protection has been developed based on the proven Continental SafetySystem Breaker. Its nylon fabric makes it resistant to punctures and cuts like Kevlar reinforced high strength fibres, but offers lower rolling resistance and reduced weight. The NyTech breaker sits between the SafetySystem and the PolyX Breaker as a more effective puncture protection casing in the performance sector. The PureGrip compound is based on activated silica compounds, this technology was originally intended as an 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 their BlackChili Compound and is being used in our 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 tyres, which are exclusively manufactured in Conti's factory in Hefei (Asia).
