Continuing its strategy of supporting cycling at levels from grassroots to pro, CST Tires is sponsoring the Tour of Qinghai Lake for a sixth consecutive year. CST is the only designated tire for the 13-stage, UCI-sanctioned race, which runs July 16-29 in China’s Qinghai province.
The company is also sponsoring a team competing in the Tour, Ningxia Ticai Livall Intercontinental. The riders of Ningxia Ticai Livall Intercontinental are racing on tires developed by CST in cooperation with a cycling team from Italy, Team Bardiani.
Taking advantage of the prominence of the Tour, CST is using the race as an opportunity to launch an additional four new tires:
C1922, the Cito, is a lightweight, high-performance road tire which features remarkably low rolling resistance and an attractive selection of sidewall colors.
C1768, the Heathen, offers superior traction and excellent cornering performance. This MTB tire’s superior puncture protection delivers a worry-free ride.
C1747N, the Jackrabbit II, is an exclusive racing tire designed specifically for MTB XC racing. A lightweight carcass and ingenious pattern design not only provide C1747N with excellent grip, but also meet high-speed riding requirements.
C1955, the Serratus, is a durable tire that performs well on pavement or off-road, featuring a pattern design which effectively reduces rolling resistance.
In order to optimize performance and to best meet riders’ needs, all of these tires were developed using feedback from pro cyclists. CST is proud to provide pro racers and recreational riders alike with high-quality tires developed in the spirit of skilled craftsmanship.
