Adventure Racers can be presented with a mixture of tough geographical conditions in various races, from rough trail running to gravel lined roads therefore footwear and tyres need to take all those stresses and strains in their stride!
Choosing the right footwear and the right road bike tyres is essential, they can help with increased grip, ride comfort and rolling resistance. We are more than a car tyre brand; we also offer award winning grip for bike tyres and we continue to enjoy a successful relationship with adidas footwear to provide grip for their premium running and trail shoes – ideal for your adventure racing.
In February 2019, we became the official partner of the Irish National Adventure Race Series (NARS). The Continental Tyres National Adventure Race Series contains two categories: ‘Expert’ and ‘Sport’.
At the end of each adventure racing season, races in the Continental Tyres NARS are reviewed and assessed for eligibility and suitability for the upcoming year. The Continental Tyres NARS does not have any input in to the organisation or operation of any of the qualifying events in the series. They are independent events that have reached a standard that is required for selection to compete in the series.
