Exactly like the Competition tire, except with less rubber - GREAT TIRE IN 19mm or 23mm
I ride the continental Podium 19mm size, and it's a great tire. In fact I would rate it the most dependable tire, in its' size classification. Note The primary (and only) difference of this tire, compared to the competition tire is that continental shaved weight by reducing the quantity of rubber used in the podium - outside of that, it's the same tire as the Competition tire. Note the 19mm can hold up to 220 psi, not 170 psi, as shown in this company's ad. For road use, and not gravel or harsh conditions. The rubber will get cuts if you run over rough gravel, however the vectran seal stops flats and leaks from occurring. The 19 mm weighs a scant 195 grams, and grips like a mother. Buy this tire and you'll be happy, very happy you did.
