Brand new Continental Competition Pro LTD - AL tubular tire.
This particular tubular tire is the extremely rare Pro Limited version. This is a special version only supplied to sponsored pro teams, and they are normally not available in public cycling stores. This edition is the AL diamond pattern with an all-round competition tread, which is one of the most popular Pro Limited tires, and used by the pros in many road races.
Pro Limited is considered as the holy grail of tubular tires, and even teams who are not sponsored by Continental, sometimes use them in an unbranded version for the most important races.
The main difference between the regular competition tubular and the Pro LTD is that this tubular features a latex inner-tube, which makes the tire even lighter and improves grip and puncture resistance.
This AL edition is an 'all-round' version used for most regular road races, where weight and puncture resistance is in perfect balance.
These AL tubular tires have been aged in storage for a pro team for several years, so they are therefore ready to race. This is a process that pro teams use because it improves the resistance of the tires to punctures by making the rubber drier and therefore less able to pick up small rocks from the road.
