Improve your race time while riding on the Continental Sprinter.

Light enough for racing and durable enough for training, the Continental Sprinter Tubular Road Bike Tire features four layers of polyamide casing to protect against punctures. The German-made Sprinter Tire gives you a smooth ride, offers high mileage, and features natural rubber and activated silica compound (ASC). Continental's ASC enhances the tire rubber's grip on both wet and dry roads, which improves cornering safety and reduces rolling resistance. Inflation on this three-ply tire is 115 to 170 psi.

Very difficult to mount on the rim

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Very smooth tire. Appears to be able to stand up to ordinary road debris. Requires week to 10 days of stretching on the rim before gluing. Even then it requires the strength of King Kong to remount it. I recommend tape instead of glue because of the difficulty in mounting. Next time I will buy the Grand Prix, but at $59 the Sprinter is a value.

Decent tire if you get in on Sale

Pre-Stretch for 1 week on a rim at 160psi and you will get the tire on easier, the butyl tube holds air quite well, it is a true 22mm tire but does not ride any worse than than other tires at 110psi. Durability is good and cut resistance as well, a 25mm version is out now but usually not on sale...:(

Does these measure true 22mm or do they run a little wider, more like a 23mm?

Crap tire

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I making my patriotic duty as an American as they must have some small ass rims in Germany. These are a god dam nightmare to mount and I not joking you need to be Conan or some other muscle bound ass to mount these things. Not good when your a puny cyclist that has little to no upper body strength after long periods of caloric deficit. DO NOT BUY EVER spend the extra dough on a better tire that mounts properly.

Best value for the price

Awesome as an everyday or training tubular tire. Handles excellently with Conti's Black Chili rubber, good ride quality considering the butyl rubber tubes, seems quite puncture and cut resistant as I have run the 22mm's on over 15 miles of gravel/dirt fire road with no issues. Wear is much better than a "race" tire like Vittoria CX's.

Pros: Inexpensive, durable, long-lasting, good grip, made in Germany

Cons: sizes (22mm is slightly skinny and 25 maybe a little too wide)

ride quality not as good as latex tubies, heavier than "race" tires

Really Great Tires

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I only ride on tubulars and these have proven to be an excellent all around tire. I run them with Stans and have had excellent luck. I have tried other brands but keep coming back to these. These are priced right, decent weight and ride well but the biggest factor is they hold up.

Are these 25mm wide or 22mm? 700x25x22

Are these 25mm wide or 22mm? 700x25x22

Just received this tire in the mail. It was 22mm wide.

Great Alternative

Made the upgrade to Tubular's this year and have been very happy, I ran GP4000's for the first half of the season and needed to replace the rear after wearing it out. Bought a pair of sprinters and couldn't be happier. I currently have more miles on the sprinter and the rear looks like its still ready for more.

Nice ride but ...

    Easy to mount, not overly expensive, good control and acceleration, smooth ride. First 100 miles got a 3 mm horizontal cut on front tire. Holds pressure well. Solid construction overall. Comparatively this tire was flat free about as long as Tufo S3 Lite. I was expecting a little more puncture resistance with the Conti and was disappointed. Overall prefer it's handling characteristics over S3 Lite however the latter rode faster. Concerning flats I had better success with Tufo S33 Special and Tufo Hi-C although both tires ride slower for me over Conti and S3. I'll probably buy again depending on how successful the repair process goes. I may have to send this one to Tire Alert in Florida, I hope they're still in business - their web-site seems to be down.

    Nice ride but ...

    Have been repairing tubulars since 1973 - takes time but they fix. Takes the right materials, good eyes and something or someone good to listen to. You got to stay after it, the good ones - higher dollar, higher pressure - are worth the time. I have to admit I am at max. 142 lb.s which makes a difference!

      This is a great tubular. I ran a set of these on my Zipp 303 for the entire summer, not just racing but training as well. Probably put 1400 miles on this wheelset last summer and these babies are still looking good. No cuts or major nicks and the no typical back tire wearout. Yet, during any rainy rides they were not scary to be on, good rubber. I am running 25's. These will not disappoint, and the price is right.

      Is it made in China or Germany? Black Chili...

      Is it made in China or Germany?
      Black Chili or ASC compound?
      conflicting info on both; please clarifiy. THX

      Continental Tires are all still made in Germany, at least all of them to my knowledge. I just bought a pair of these and "Handmade in Germany" was boldly stenciled on the side.
