Continental tyre amnesty - get a pair of Grand Sport Race tyres free

Get a brand new pair of Grand Sport Race tyres and inner tubes worth £72 when you trade in your old tyres

Continental are offering a pair of their brand new Grand Sport Race tyres in return for a pair of old tyres (any non Continental brand) with a pair of inner tubes worth £71.88. The promotion runs until 31st July at selected dealers and some sportives, and they’re only asking you to complete a feedback form on the new tyres in return for their generosity.

To partake in the offer you need to take your bike to a participating dealer where they will remove your old tyres and fit a pair of brand new Grand Sport Race in 23 or 25mm width with new Race28 inner tubes. They’ll dispose of the old tyres on your behalf. 

This offer runs from 15th May to 31st July, but Continental says that dealers have a limited supply, and once a dealer exhausts their supply prior to 1st June, the offer is no longer available. So the hint is to not hang around if you want to make use of this offer, and get down to your nearest dealer sharpish. With a new pair of tyres fitted, customers will be asked to give their feedback of the new tyres at their website. Doesn't seem too much to ask in return for a brand new pair of tyres.

The Grand Sport is a brand new tyre from Continental available in three variations; Light, Extra and Race. The latter is a racing and training tyre featuring a 180tpi casing with a NyTech breaker to protect against flats, and the new PureGrip compound is said to provide high levels of grip.

There are also three events that you’ll be able to do a tyre swap, where they’ll have about 100 tyres so again you don’t want to be back of the queue.  The events are the Welsh Wild West Sportive (25th May),  Dragon Ride (8th June) and the Dartmoor Classic Sportive (22nd June).

You can see the full list of participating dealers at their website

Makes me glad i keep old tyres now. They come in handy as frame protectors when transporting the bikes in vans, slotting between bikes.

I'll swap a couple on to some rims and take them to the LBS which happens to be in the scheme..

I have rung a few shops and they all say you need to take your bike in and they then swap tyres and tubes. Rejected my offer to make life easier by just bringing in the tyres!
