Continental Terra Trail Performance Shieldwall 700x35 Folding Gravel/CX Tire
While Conti sells top-tier, race-ready tires, they also produce a lower-tier performance line for riders who are not relying on their rubber to reach the podium.
Unlike many of its similarly-priced competitors, the Terra Trail comes tubeless-ready, meaning you can run those grippy lower pressures without fear of a pinch flat. The tubeless setup also wards off any small punctures with the clotting sealant that is added to the inside of the tire.
Along with the tubeless puncture protection, the Performance line comes with Conti's proprietary Shieldwall system, which prevents sidewall slashes and other punctures from breaking into the tire casing. For a budget-level puncture protection system, Shieldwall works extremely well, providing confidence and reliability.
One of the main reasons why Conti is one of the leaders in the bicycle tire industry is due to their excellent rubber compounds. They use PureGrip in the Terra Trails, which was developed for high mileage, puncture resistance, and grip. The PureGrip rubber offers outstanding grip and higher-level speed properties than its competitors.
