Attributes which have also convinced a lot of magazines. e.g. the British magazine 'What MTB' tested our all-rounder to test win!
- Fills the gap between the Mountain and Race King
- BlackChili compound provides outstanding grip and low rolling resistance
- Fast, high grip and excellent self-cleaning tread design
- A dense central tread provides smooth rolling, whilst raised outer knobs provide sure cornering traction
- Handmade in Korbach
In the research and development laboratories for Continental bicycle tyres in Korbach, Germany, the staff and engineers have been looking for the solution to one of the fundamental problems of tyre construction: The running properties of the rubber compound of a tyre are largely determined by three interacting factors: static friction (grip), rolling resistance and mileage.
The dilemma is that you improve one of these factors, and in turn, worsen at least one other factor.
A tyre with maximum grip wears out faster and rolls slower. If one makes the tyre faster or more durable, then this in turn reduces grip.
With the then current highest standard of compound technology, the Activated Silica Compound having already reached a very high standard of compromise, our developers wanted to take compounding to an even higher level.
This lead them to venture into new territory, exploring new ways so that in 2005 they made a breakthrough in mixing technology, the first steps to what is now known as BlackChili.
This revolutionary compound is based on the latest findings on polymer and other raw material research.
For BlackChili we refine newly developed synthetic rubbers with natural rubber with the proven high-performance tread compound.
We use these rubbers with special nanometric carbon soot particles, which are optimized in shape and surface properties for best uses for the intended tyre. BlackChili Compound reaches an unprecedented of performance.
Tyres with BlackChili Compound reach an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to the previous best Activated Silica Compound, BlackChili tyres have 26% less rolling resistance, a 30 % higher friction value (grip) and a 5 % increase in mileage.
BlackChili technology never stands still as it is continuously developed and tailored to the individual applications of new Continental tyres as they continue to be produced out of the Korbach factory.
Whether on the road or mountain bike, speed and grip advantages are very noticeable. The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tyres with BlackChili Compound can only be produced exclusively in our German Korbach factory.
Better than ever before, the new Continental ProTection casing. The extra all-round puncture protection layer renders the casings especially durable and intensive to damage or penetration from foreign elements.
Treads and sidewalls are equally protected, and are 25 % lighter and offer 30 % more puncture protection than their predecessors protected by DuraSkin. Rolling resistance and absorption has also significantly improved.
The new Made in Germany technology allows it to withstand even the hardest trails across the world. Whats more: theyre universally usable, are inspired by BlackChili Compound and have an aesthetically pleasing sidewall design.
The new Revolution Tubeless Ready bead improves the application of Tubeless Ready Tires.
For optimal results with sealing for tubeless use and whilst riding, we recommend the application of the new Continental RevoSealant.
Uncompromisingly designed for use in mountain bike racing:
the RaceSport carcasses combine logical light construction and noticeably better protection against flat tires at the very highest level. Together with famous professional mountain bikers, we have created the perfect starting basis for competition tires.
Handmade in Germany, they offer a 30 % better protection against flat tires than Supersonic tires. The construction makes the difference – particularly fine and high-grade nylon fabric with an expensive, protective, rubber lining and a universal foot.
Together with the legendary Black Chili Compound, the ultimate combination for XC racing and marathon events.
Pure Grip Compound:
Based on activated silica compounds, this technology was originally intended as an performance level compound, but after intensive development at our Korbach Research and Development Department Facility, an advanced new compound with outstanding grip and cross-country properties was developed.
This new rubber mix, given the self explanatory name “Pure Grip”, is ranked just behind our BlackChili compound and is being used in our performance products both in the road and mountain bike sectors.
Whilst providing great grip, it is also long lasting and highly durable – both characteristics of Continental tyres, which are exclusively manufactured in the factory in Hefei (Asia).
