1871 Deutsche Technik
More than 100 years experience in the development and production of bicycle tires has made Continental a unique company within the industry.
Continental is the only German bicycle tire manufacturer to produce its tires in Germany. Knowing this serves as a mighty incentive to our engineers and everyone else involved in the manufacturing process to constantly strive for further innovations.
In our technology and development center in Korbach, we are constantly developing and using new revolutionary technologies such as the unbeatable BlackChili Compound and the ultimate Vectran™ Breaker anti-puncture technology, both used at the top end of race sport.
These technologies demand sophisticated processes to ensure our legendary endproduct quality, and these innovations, as well as the ProTection and RaceSport technology for MTB tires, are exclusively manufactured in our factory in Germany – “Handmade in Germany”.
In order to offer the best tire for any application, we rely equally on dialogue with our professional racers, ambitioned hobby cyclists and everyday bike riders.
As a global player, Continental also maintains high-tech production facilities outside of Germany, where Continental tires are produced for you with an equal degree of care and dedication. One thing all Continental bicycle tires have in common is that they are developed in the technology center in Korbach, Germany, where they also undergo strict inspection.
Our heart and soul is behind the phrase “Handmade in Germany”, with all of its products and technologies.
