Welcome to mud: the Mountain King folding tyre by Continental
In muddy Cross Country races the Mountain King has already proven itself, now this tyre is available for Cyclocross. Thanks to the deep tread, the Mountain King bites into the ground and even on hardpack the lugs roll well. The side lugs are intentionally separated from the center lugs so that when you are taking corners you get lean into them and maintain grip. The BlackChili compound performs great in cold temperatures and the tyre is self-cleaning. The testers' opinion: tracks like a train.

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 Korback, 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.
Better than ever before, the new Continental ProTection casing. The extra all-round puncture protection layer renders the casings especially durable and insensitive 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. What's more: they're universally usable, are inspired by aesthetically pleasing sidewall design. The new Revolution Tubeless Ready Bead improves the application of Tubeless Ready tyres. For optimal results with sealing for tubeless use and whilst riding, Conti recommends the application of the new Continental RevoSealant.
