Continental unveils new wheelie tire

Tire-maker Continental unveiled a range of new products this week, including an industry-first: a tire designed specifically for making riding wheelies easier.

With the same shape as some of their traditional off-road treads, the tire is 300 grams lighter and has a special "springy" rubber compound that will allow you to lift the front end more easily and keep it lofted.

The company says it is responding to increased demand from riders who aren’t satisfied with keeping two wheels on the ground.

The new tire, the WheelieGoodTire, is on sale now. Both 26-inch and 29-inch versions are available.
