Product News: New Continental Gravel Tyres

Terra Trail and Terra Speed are Continental’s all-new gravel-specific tyres and the latest range caters for a combination of conditions and riding styles

Press Release

Continental, the global market leader in road tyres, has thrown its hat into the gravel market with the launch of two new ‘TR’ tubeless ready tires: Terra Trail – for riders wanting versatility and adventure – and Terra Speed – for those seeking comfort, velocity and performance.

Designed and handmade in Continental’s headquarters in Korbach, both tyres  are made with Continental’s premium Black Chili Compound, feature their ProTection Technology, and are ‘TR’ tubeless-ready. They are also available in two colorways – black/black and black/cream.

Terra Trail

Available in two sizes, 650 x 40B (440g) and 700 x 40C (460g), Terra Trail is a tyre that offers unrivalled versatility, thanks to the aggressive tread pattern, offering steadfast traction across a multitude of terrains. This gives the rider the freedom to experience adventures with the ability to switch, uncompromisingly, between tarmac, gravel, muddy trails and other surfaces. Ideal for wet and more challenging conditions, this is the knobbliest tyre in the Terra range, designed to give the cyclist the ultimate confidence on their bike.

Terra Speed
As the name suggests, Terra Speed is the faster tyre in the range due to its reduced prominence in tread pattern, which generates less rolling resistance. Ideal for performance-seekers or those riding on less challenging surfaces, this model is available in four sizes: 650 x 35B (390g), 650 x 40B (400g), 700 x 35C (400g) and 700 x 40C (420g).

Like Terra Trail, Terra Speed is unwavering when it comes to grip, and is the perfect companion for rides and races in dry, dusty and loose conditions.
