Black Chili Compound
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. 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.
Tried and tested. The PolyX Breaker™ brings automotive know-how to the bicycle tyre segment. Polyester has been used successfully in car tyres for years and has proven its worth there many times over. The extremely resistant polyester fibre is tightly woven crosswise. This results in very high fabric density, which makes the breaker not only resistant to foreign bodies, but also particularly resistant to punctures. Rolling resistance is completely conquered by this breaker.
