Outstanding all around tubular!
by jkelly
SW Georgia

I have Continental tires on almost all of the bikes in my house (10 bikes right now). Two wheelsets are tubies the race wheels on my tri bike wearing GP 4000s and my go-to road bike wearing Sprinters. The Sprinters are great tires! I've got nearly 2000 miles on them with very little wear and zero flats. They are reasonably sticky and roll very easy. Except for race specific tires - these will be my go-to tubies!

Nice rolling, long lasting
by Yuri Lipkov

These tubulars have been my favourite for quite some time. While not the lightest out there, perhaps that's a good thing because they last well and have good puncture resistance.

Good BUT.........

Good tire, wears and performs well....however, on 4 of the last 6 conti sprinters I purchased, I experienced a SIGNIFICANT hump, or bump near the stem. I am an expert at applying tubular tires, trust me it's the tire, not tire installation technique. I had to drill a bigger hole, use tape and feather the tire on the rim....this happened on 3 different was over $1,000 so when I went on a long ride and the hump got worse, I wanted to burn the dam thing. And it's just Conti's, not any of the other tires I put on. Just FYI, good tire, but I had frustrating humpissues with just this brand of tire.

I made it almost two miles before I had a flat!

I recently acquired a 1970's road bike to restore that had tubulars. I was going to switch to clinchers, but thought it might be fun to have one bike again with sew-ups. I used to ride on them all the time. I bought them based on many good reviews. When I see a lot of good reviews, and only one or two bad ones, I usually discount the bad ones.

I finally got everything finished and took the Maserati for its maiden voyage with two new Continental Sprinter Tubulars. I made it almost two miles when I got a rear flat. It was a tiny stone fragment. Are you kidding me? I guess I should only use them on inside board tracks. No, that probably won't work either. There might be a splinter that will puncture my Sprinter

Best tubular tire you will ever find at this price!

I ride tubulars on my road bikes and fixed gear bikes 90% of the time because tubulars simply feel better and give a superior for to clincher tires. The conti sprinter is very durable, long-lasting, smooth, fast, straight mounting, and as good as eries that cost twice as much and dont hold up as well.

super fast tire for racing but not for your weekend ride.

I had this tire on my 50mm carbon rim for 8 months now. I use it on every Tuesday 45 mile country side race. This is the only tubular I have so can really compare to other tubular but I will compare to my clincher conti. 4000s and Mich. Pro4. instead.

The ride is harsh if you're riding on bad surface. You can feel every bump on the road. If you're riding on a smooth surface. Its super fast and you just glide on the road. This thing spin up so fast. I can climb with no problem. Im surprise that it can climb better then my other set of wheels. I wish they made 23mm or 25mm cause its so smooth. Its spin faster then my 4000s. The only problem is that you have to keep it at 135-165psi to get its benefit. There is a BIG difference riding it on 140-165psi compare to under 130psi. I haven't had a flat yet after 1440 miles. Front tire still look good and back might need changing soon. I will buy these again. If not then I will try Tufo S3 lite.

This is pretty much my go-to tubular anymore use them for everyday and the occasional sportif. Decent amount of wear - usually can get at least 2000 miles (up to 3000 if I'm real lucky) out of them. They are supple and roll well and are decent in the rain. Only average on puncture resistance - The GatorSkin version naturally is better - all though I had my share of punctures with them which is why I usually just go with the regular version.

Pump up this tire to 150 lbs or more. The Black Chill compound sticks to the road like glue at high speed. After several months of riding on city and open roads I have not seen one mark of damage of any kind. You must pre-stretch this tire prior to mounting or forget it, it is not going on. For road riders and racers who insist on tubulars, this is the only tire to buy.

Very good traction, perfect for crits. Seems to be durable as I was skeptical at first. No flats so far, little rocks and other sharp objects don't stick to it as much as other tires I've used. Overall I am very satisfied. Probably the best value out there. I have them mounted on a light carbon wheel set for racing andor hard climbing rides (I use heavier clinchers for regular training rides). I've gained so much confidence with their durability that I go to long rides with no tools, spares or CO2, just a can of Vittoria Pit Stop inflator in my jersey (hope my luck doesn't run out )

The tire is a tight fit initially so make sure that you stretch them out. I have rode them for about 500 miles now. They have good grip even in the rain. I race them about twice a month and at high speeds they are fast, and grip well.
