Will Conti's new tubeless road tyre install on a Mavic UST rim. Watch to find out

How well does Continental's new GP 5000 tubeless road tyre play with a Mavic UST rim? Watch the video above and you'll find out. 

In case you missed it last year, Continental finally launched a road tubeless tyre, in the shape of the all-new GP 5000. Don't worry, there's a regular clincher version too.
