The StraddleMaster carcass comprises multiple layers of high-tech fabric running diagonally from one bead to another at specially designed angles. The result is an extremely stable carcass, exceptionally strong sidewalls for protection against damage and outstanding deflection properties. The introduction of V-ply technology allowed significant improvement of the rolling resistance when compared to cross-ply tires.
The excellent deflection properties of the Continental StraddleMaster are the result of the exceptionally sturdy tire construction.
