Continental Ultra Sport III Wire Bead

The Continental Ultra Sport III (Wire Bead) is completely renewed, sporting a dynamic tread pattern design. The road cycling tire matches with a race bike, as well as a classic city road bike.

Advanced New Compound

Based on activated silica compounds, this technology was originally intended as a performance level compound, but after intensive development at Conti's Korbach Research and Development Department Facility, an advanced new compound with outstanding grip and cross-country properties was developed.

This new rubber mix, given the self-explanatory name "PureGrip", is ranked just behind the BlackChili Compound and is being used in Continental Tires' performance products both in the road and mountain bike sectors.

Whilst providing great grip, it is also long-lasting and highly durable - both characteristics of Continental tires, which are exclusively manufactured in their factory in Hefei (Asia).

Suitable for E-Bikes

For Continental's E-Bike tire the trusted company falls back on over 100 years of experience with moped and motorcycle tires.

All of Continental's city/trekking tires are rated to a standard speed of at least 25 km/h. Those tires marked e50 are also certified for S-Pedelecs. With their high-quality structure, puncture protection is high and the rolling resistance is low offering protection from premature wear brought about by the additional driving force.


  • Completely revised, with a dynamic profile design.
  • Fits on the race bike, as well as the equipment of the city road bike.
  • Performance for racing
  • Reliable puncture protection
  • Available in a range of dimensions

  • B-Stock - This product has one or more B-Stock units available. These units can be purchased at a discount (see option select).

    Great tire for the price
    by Gooniezneverdie

    Used these to replace of continental ride tour 700x28c tires. While this tire is very slick looking and smooth rolling, it lacks the aggressive grip found on other tires. Now, obviously the price point of this tire vs the continental super sports plus on my other bike is substantial and both are clearly made different, do not let that scare you! These are great tires to throw on a road bike for daily riding and stylish slick looks. (I did not get the colorway version). If you are looking for aggressive grip and high end qualities, there are other options. But this tires is definitely an elite in the entry class road bike tire market for the price and specs! And oh so easy to put on a 700x28, compared to other continental tires I've installed (super sport plus, ride tour)

    Ultra Sport is ULTRA GOOD VALUE
    by blueriderthom

    Continental name guarantees quality. I've never been disappointed in the Ultra Sport tires. I used to log 250 mi/week downtown PDX to Hillsboro and return. Living in Bend area and riding Cascade Lakes, Lower Bridge and McKenzie Pass I've rarely had anything but good traction and very few punctures. Kudos to W Bike Works for stocking the tyre, selling it at a fair price pt and doing every delivery pronto.

    Meaty tire tire for smooth ride

    Great tire at 30mm, smooth ride @ 100psi. Holding up well after 200 miles or so. I'm a big guy 6' 3" 260lbs. Great on the flats, not so much on the hills.

    Excellent value for commuter bike!

    So i needed a 700x28 for my commuter bike, and tire was perfect. I was worried it would be too slow, as I generally ride 25's on my race bikes, but this was the perfect combination of durability and speed. Great product.
