CONTINENTAL tire Urban Taraxagum 28 "| 700 x 35C VectranBreaker Limited Edition
The Urban Taraxagum from Continental is the first series-produced bicycle tire with dandelion rubber from Germany.
The tire combines a modern tread design with the latest technology and convinces with a coordinated race structure and at the same time pleasant cushioning - the right combination for everyday life in the city. The Urban is therefore a good choice for fixies, single speeds and commuter bikes. The tire from Taraxagum is adorned all round with stylized dandelion plants on the side wall and proudly shows what it is made of. A black reflective stripe blends in harmoniously and provides lateral visibility when you roll through the city on the Urban.
The project is embedded in an overarching sustainability strategy that takes economic, ecological and social aspects into account. The considerably shorter distances between the regional cultivation areas and Continental's European tire plants mean that logistics and transport costs can be reduced and resources can be used more sustainably. This is how sustainability comes into series production. Give something back to your city with the Urban Taraxagum!
handmade in Germany
These tires are among the highest quality made by Continental. They are sewn by hand in the Korbach factory and set special standards in workmanship and quality.
Vectran is a synthetically produced high-tech fiber with a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran is a liquid crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran is spun from the melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed into a multi-fiber yarn. Spider silk as well as Vectran have an enormous tensile strength with the lowest weight. A higher puncture resistance and lower weight are the advantages of the Vectran-Breaker. Vectran is cut more resistant than aramid, five times more tensile than steel and lighter than a nylon thread without affecting the rolling resistance. It therefore offers the ideal protective layer for the tire. Vectran was developed for airbag systems in the automotive and aerospace industries.
