Podium TT The time machine. TT stands for time trial. Entire tours are decided in the fight against the clock. This is reason enough to offer particularly fast tyres. While it was conceived as a time trial tyre, the Podium TT is also very popular with professionals for normalraces. The reason for this is its construction. Thanks to the latest Black Chili Compound, this chrono specialist, availablein 19 mm and 22 mm width, is not only super fast, but its VectranBreaker offers excellent puncture prevention. In addition, the 22 mm width version of the Podium is lightweight at only 205 g. A low weight means low rotation energy. The thickness of the tread was reduced to 0.7 mm, which is still enough for a few tough race days. The ultrafast slick tread shows how fast it really is even when it’s not moving.
