The Podium is a dedicated time trial / triathlon tyre which is aimed to provide low rolling resistance whilst maintaining durability at a low price. With a retail price of 49.99, a slick 19mm tread and fast Black Chili compound providing a long service life, the Podium gives the best characteristics for those riding individual events. The 700c version weighs 250g providing durability and good puncture protection as well as low rolling resistance. A 650 version is also available, again with a 19mm slick tread.
Valverde uses them, as have many top cyclists over the past few seasons. When the racing turns to the 'race against time' our teams switch from the Competition to the Podium to save weight & time..
