Continental has released two new commuter-oriented tyres, one for traditional bikes and one that's e-bike specific. The Ruban and eRuban Plus make up a new category of tyres that the brand calls SUV-Allrounder. 

Continental says that the two new tyres, with their wide-profile and big knobs, took inspiration from mountain bike tyres. However, unlike mountain bike tyres, the new tyres will be more efficient on tarmac. A fast-rolling centre tread combined with large side-knobs means that commuters can quickly dash down the road, or drop into sectors of dirt path and singletrack if they want to.
