Traction Has A New Name — Hydrotal
Continental's brand new line of gravity tires has arrived! This means a full range of big, beefy, downhill-focused bruisers with no shortage of grip, tooth, cornering confidence, durability and monster traction available in four condition-specific models — from hardpack trails to loose and muddy downhill lines.
The Continental Hydrotal 29er is specifically designed for extreme traction through loose and muddy downhill terrain with aggressive, widely-spaced 3D-stepped lugs and massive, toothy shoulder knobs for extra bite when things get messy. The Hydrotal 29er is ready to party, equally at home in the front or rear. Available in a super-soft downhill casing, the Hydrotal's unique proprietary lugs flex to conform to uneven, loose, wet and muddy terrain, locking your traction in for ultra-confident handling through the steepest and deepest of lines.
