One of the best selling tubular tires on the market, Continental's Sprinter is light and durable. This do-it-all tire is perfect for all forms of racing - from criteriums and road races to time trials and triathlons. At 275 (700x22) grams, it rivals many top tubulars for low weight. The BlackChili compound ensures tread rubber that will last so you can get many trouble-free miles out of a tire.The casing is constructed from three layers of Continental's proprietary polyamide casing. This casing gives the Sprinter a light and firm but resilient ride quality.

The BlackChili compound is derived directly from Moto GP racing and offers lots of high end technology. It is essentially a blend of natural and synthetic rubbers. The natural rubber is mixed with 'nano' sized soot particles, who's surface properties are optimized to deform around surface objects and inconsistencies in the road for better grip. These small particles also form a tighter bond with each other improving compound strength for improved longevity and shear strength. Thanks to these polymers and carbon fillers, the BlackChili delivers one of the strongest and most durable tread available, as well as having exceedingly low rolling resistance. Under the tread is a nylon puncture protection breaker strip. It delivers excellent puncture protection while not affecting the ride quality of the tire.

In summary, the Sprinter is a proven, performance-oriented tubular tire that is super durable and chock full of value. Year after year the Sprinter has been an Excel staff favorite, and continues to be a top seller.
