The Continental Premium tyres have been designed to deliver top performance. They are equipped with the latest technologies, which have been developed together with the most successful athletes in the world. They are handmade by the experienced specialists in Korbach (Germany). Added to this are selected materials for the highest quality and outstanding properties.
The rolling characteristics of the rubber compound of a tyre are determined by three interacting factors: Static friction (grip), rolling resistance and mileage. The dilemma: If one of these factors is improved, at least one other factor deteriorates in return. Black Chili Compound is the name of Continental's revolutionary tread compound based on the latest findings in polymer and raw material research. For Black Chili, Continental refines newly developed synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber to produce particularly high-performance tread compounds. Conti adds nanoscale carbon black particles to these rubbers, which are optimised in shape and surface properties in order to match the compound to the respective application of the tyre. Tyres with Black Chili Compound achieve an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to activated silica tyres Black Chili tyres have 26 % lower rolling resistance, 30 % higher static friction value (grip) and 5 % higher mileage. Whether on a Road bike or MTB - the speed and grip advantage is clearly noticeable! The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tyres with Black Chili are produced exclusively at Continental in Korbach.
The reference in puncture protection. A synthetically produced high-tech fibre with spun silk as a natural model. Vectran is spun from the molten liquid polymer Vectra and processed into a multi-fibre yarn. Enormously tear-resistant at the lowest possible weight - just right to be used as puncture protection in a premium tyre by Continental. And this without affecting the rolling resistance.
