Continental debuts Revolution Tubeless Ready tire range

By Caley Fretz

Continental is adding a new line of tires between their current lightweight Race Sport and heavy-duty UST options. The range, dubbed Revolution Tubeless Ready, or RTR, offers up a full UST bead and mid-weight casing for full tubeless compatibility. It is clearly aimed directly at riders who prefer tubeless tires but don’t like the fragile sidewalls of the Race Sport line or the extra weight that comes with the full UST version — the vast majority of riders, in fact.Continental’s use of a 4-ply casing with one rubberized ply, rather than three regular plies as used on the Race Sport line, increases sidewall protection and overall durability without much weight gain. Each tire uses Black Chili rubber and every model will retail for $65. The RTR line is available in four tread patterns, the Mountain King, Trail King, X-King, and Race King, and will weigh 25-30% less than Continental’s UST tires. Each tread option is available in 26” or 29” diameter, and 2.2” or 2.4” width. Continental expects to debut 650b options by the Eurobike trade show this fall.

Claimed weights:Race King RTR: 550 grams/X-King RTR: 570 grams
