Continental Releases Conti Motion
Cambrian Tyres, the UK importer for Continental motorcycle and bicycle tyres, describes the Continental range as the fastest growing motorcycle tyre brand in the top seven. New for 2008 in the Continental range is the Conti Motion (pictured). Available from March 2008, the Motion is dubbed as the “world’s first entry level sports touring radial tyre.”
The tyre is built for year-round use and is said to provide “great value for money” as it offers a high service life yet costs less than other tyres in its sector. The longer mileage is reportedly achieved by using new formulated polymers in the compound along with a modern, force orientated tread pattern.
The zero degree steel belt construction provides better stability and more comfort than standard radials and so the Motion will really appeal to riders requiring performance and mileage on a budget.
Continental also launched the ‘ContiGO’, for H & V rated bikes along with new sizes in many of their other models including a Race Attack custom option, thus expanding this successful tyre range to a broader customer audience.
