Continental, tire specialist
Continental was born in 1871 in HANNOVER in Germany under the name of "Continental-Rubber-und Guttta-Percha Company". The Hanover factory then manufactures soft rubber products, and already full bandages for trolleys and bicycles.
In 1892 Continental was the first German company to manufacture bicycle tires, called "pneumatics".
In 1904 Continental was the first company in the world to create grooved tires for cars.
In 1909, the aviator Louis Blériot was the first man to cross the English Channel by plane. The wings of this aircraft were covered by "Continental" materials.
In 1920, the company merged with major rubber companies and became Continental Fummi-Werke AG.
In 2015, Continental is the world's fourth largest tire manufacturer after Michelin, Bridgestone and Goodyear and employs nearly 160,000 people worldwide.
Continental remembered that before 1900, it already produced rubber bullets and that in 1920 it manufactured tubes for leather balloons and sponsored since 1995 major football events including the European Cup and world Cup.
In the field of cycling, more than one hundred years of experience in the development and production of tires and ongoing collaboration with riders and cyclists have given the company a well-deserved reputation. Continental sponsors many athletes in the world of mountain biking, road cycling and triathlon, teams like the BMC Racing Team, as well as sporting events like the FIFA World Cup and the Tour de France.
Its technology and development center in Korbach is constantly on the lookout for revolutionary new technologies and has developed the "black chili" composed of nano technologies, allowing a reduction of the rolling resistance and a better adhesion, an improvement of the performance and less rapid tire wear. Continental has also introduced "Vectran" technology in the manufacture of its tires, which makes them more resistant to cuts and punctures.

The brand produces tires, hoses and pneumatic accessories (hose glue pots, inner tubes, rim flanges, valve extensions).
The Continental Grand Prix range has become a benchmark among road bike tires offering lightness, strength and good performance (we find the GP 4000, GP 4000S and GP 4000S II).
