Five New Tire Sizes for the ContiRoad

The ContiRoad sport touring tire is now also available for bikers in the displacement class up to 300 cc.

The five new dimensions of the sporty all-rounder will go on sale gradually by the second quarter of 2024: as 17-inch front tires in sizes 100/80 and 110/70, and as 17-inch rear tires in three sizes: 130/70 and 140 /70 and 150/60.

Fast-growing segment: motorcycles up to 300 cc

With the five new entry-level sizes, Continental is equipping riders of motorcycles with a displacement between 125 and 300 cc with the performance their bikes deserve. The vehicle category is particularly popular because of its economy, efficiency and adaptability, and is convincing more and more customers in the main markets of Asia, North and South America and Europe. For example, the displacement class between 250 and 499 cc has tripled its market share in Germany in the past ten years: from 4.7 to 14 percent1.

For sporty tours and everyday driving fun

Thanks to its convincing properties, the ContiRoad, even in the five new dimensions as a diagonal tire, perfectly masters the balancing act between sporty driving and driving pleasure in all weather conditions in everyday life. Its optimized silica mixture offers particularly good wet grip and therefore more safety on wet roads. The Continental engineers adopted the tread design from the larger radial tires. More material in the profile of the wear zones ensures high mileage and reduces costs per kilometer.

The carcass and contour of the tire are designed for playful handling and at the same time stability at higher speeds – even with maximum load. The short warm-up phase also contributes to this. Gonasagren Nair, product manager for Motorcycle Tires at Continental: “Our five new diagonal tires guarantee easy accessibility and driving pleasure in equal measure. The ContiRoad also provides a direct driving feeling when things need to be more dynamic on the home circuit.” This is due to the carefully coordinated interaction between profile, construction and compound. The result is a very sporty running surface that creates an ideal connection between mileage, stability, and self-damping. When it comes to wet and dry grip, the ContiRoad can even compete with much sportier tires. Its flexibility and range for different riding styles and conditions could hardly be greater: it is suitable for use even in extremely poor road conditions.
