Time trial specific tubular with Vectran protection
The new Podium TT (time trial) has been developed both by our craftsmen in Korbach, Germany and also by pro cyclists from BMC & Lotto-Belisol.
Using their combined expertise, we've restructured the old 19mm Podium by minimising the amount of tread rubber to reduce weight (0.7mm), replacing it with a high-tech and very lightweight Vectran breaker underneath. Vectran is used in all our premium clincher and tubular models, and the Podium is now no exception!
Tougher than aramid, Vectran is a clear winner in strength to weight testing, ensuring rolling resistance on such a speed critical tyre such as the Podium is not compromised.
The Podium is the best choice for dedicated time triallists and triathletes.
The tyre will still withstand the rigoures of a full British club time trial programme, as was also tested by a select band of UK riders during its development.
