Engineering excellence in all we do
Deutsche Technik since 1871 Over 100 years of experience in the manufacturing of bicycle tyres has made Continental into the unique, outstanding company that it is today.
This uniqueness shows in the range of our products for cyclists. Continental tyres are not only designed in the technological and development centre in Korbach (Germany), but are also mostly produced here too. As a global company, we also have hi-tech branches outside of Germany but our focus is naturally "Handmade in Germany".
That's why Continental is the only bicycle tyre manufacturer in Germany and one of the last major bicycle tyre manufacturers in Europe. This is the spirit that motivates our engineers and everyone involved in the production to create new ideas such as the Der Kaiser ProJekt downhill tyre and the famous GP4000S with its puncture protection technology and also our Black Chili compound. Innovations that underline the "handmade" technological competence of our factory in Korbach.
