General Information
Absolutely wonderful clincher tire made by Contintental; wears exceptionally well; I can still use mine, (though I have opted for the new Tufo tubular clincher), after several hundred miles all over Europe, US and Middle East.  The foldable capability (new bead technology, not using the metal wire of old) was popular in the 80s and into the 90s - made carrying a spare very easy. Continental still sells clinchers under the Grand Prix banner for less than $50.00.

Brand Information(click to expand)
 The Continental AG (in Germany commonly known as Conti) is today one of world's largest tire manufacturers. Most bicycle tire production is located in Korbach where tubular tires are still handmade. In the early years they were very successful (for example, in the years 1896 and 1897 they paid out a 55%-dividend!) and have grown from a plant with 250 employees in 1875 up to 13.000 in 1914. This rapid development originates from the prosperity of the bicycle industry, itself quickened by the invention of the pneumatic tire.
