For a second year Continental supports the worldwide Eroica series, a real must do for lovers of vintage cycling culture. Originally started in 1997 in Italia there are worldwide spin-offs of this legendary event meanwhile.
The challenge: to ride the gravel courses dressed in vintage or vintage-inspired cycling gear and on historical or vintage-style bikes.
Available solely at the event series, Continental has created a limited Eroica collection, consisting of exclusive L’Eroica tyres and a vintage clothing collection.
Technically up to date, with its brown sidewalls and the original Conti Sport tread from 1982 the Grand Prix Classic (25-622) is the perfect choice for true vintage race enthusiasts.
The GatorClassic Tubular (28” x 25 mm) also comes with the latest technology whilst the tyre’s whole design is aimed for the glorious L’Eroica vintage look. Both tyres are “handmade in Germany”.
The exclusive clothing collection consists of a retro wool jersey, a vintage designed T-Shirt, as well as a matching race cap. All pieces have been exclusively selected and transport the event’s remarkable vintage spirit.
