Dominance has a name: Der Kaiser 2.4 Projekt folding tyre by Continental
For almost 2 years, Conti engineers worked on this project together with the best Downhill and Freeride riders on the planet. Richie Schley's reaction: " You created a monster!" This monster is supported by wedge shaped side lugs that offer progressive cornering. That keeps Der Kaiser controllable even when pushing to the limit. The center tread rolls quickly and bites into the ground when braking. The newly developed Apex and double carcass increase Der Kaiser's torsional stiffness and impact resistance more than ever before. The 2.4" carcass qualifies Der Kaiser a an agiler weapon, made for the most difficult World Cup runs. Handmade in Germany.

Note from the manufacturer: Der Kaiser Projekt is a competition tyre with less mileage!
Continental Premium tyres are made or the highest performance. They use the latest technologies developed with the world's most successful athletes. The tyres are also handmade by experienced specialists in Korbach, Germany. Only the best materials is used for the highest quality and exceptional properties.
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. Black Chili Compound, the revolutionary compound from Continental, is based on the latest findings on polymer and other raw material research. For BlackChili, Continental redefined newly developed synthetic rubbers with natural rubber with the proven high performance tread compound. These rubbers are used 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 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. 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 Continental's German Korbach factory.
The new discipline is called Enduro, which has been becoming increasingly popular for some time now. It is the technical challenge of rapid, hard descents and exhausting ascents. This requires the combination of a puncture protecting construction and fine rolling characteristics as well as excellent grip. The proven ProTection layer protects the tyre reliably against cuts and puncturing without significantly increasing the weight. The additional apex side wall stabilization reliably protects the tyre against puncturing even if the tyre pressure is low. There is also the option of weight optimization by riding the tyre together with Continental RevoSealant making it " Tubeless Ready" . With an anti-skidding BlackChili Compound tread, optimum pairing is achieved when efficiently driving uphill and downhill puncture-free.
