Limited Edition; handmade and fast enough for the pros
These Tour de France LTD tubulars are handmade in Germany by Continental, sewn and vulcanized by the same hands that make the pro tires. They use the same top-level, German-produced BlackChili compound rubber that gives the Competition family excellent grip, low rolling resistance, and relatively long wearing, and Conti's signature fine file ALX tread design.

I need to start off by saying I was coming off a set of FMB Paris Roubaix 27mm tires on my Bianchi Infinito CV. They actually measured out to 29mm once broken in. That being said, I wanted to go back to a 25mm tire for better clearance knowiing I would give up some comfort in my ride by doing so. I put the new Competition TdF's on and they measured exactly 25mm. I started with 110 psi and ended up at 75 psi in the rear and 70 psi in the front. From a ride stand point they are as CLOSE to the FMB's as you'll get and soooo much faster. I am very happy with the Conti's and have to admit I was never a fan, I typically ran Vittoria, FMB or Veloflex for the past 7 years.
Fantastic tires and BikeTiresDirect was great, I ordered the tires on Saturday and they showed up on my door on Monday. Can't beat that kind of service.
