Premium tyres, manufactured to achieve peak performances. Latest technologies, developed with the most successful athletes in the world and handmade by experienced specialists in Korbach (Handmade in Germany). Selected materials for highest quality are used here.

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.

The ProTection technology gives tyres the perfect blend of smooth running, grip and puncture protection. This is made possible by an additional all-round puncture protection layer, which makes the entire tyre particularly resistant and insensitive to puncture. Despite the extra ply, the tyre offers very good damping and rolls cleanly over the toughest trails. Another feature of German-made ProTection technology is Tubeless Ready. The revolutionary Tubeless Ready base allows easy and uncomplicated mounting of the tyre. For optimum results in sealing and in use, Conti recommends the use of the Continental RevoSealant.

ECO 25
The tyres with Continental ECO technology benefit from over 100 years of experience in the development of moped and motorcycle tyres. Optimised and recommended for e-bikes up to 25 km/h, they guarantee low rolling resistance and good puncture protection thanks to their particularly high-quality construction. The durability was tested especially for e-bikes to counteract the premature wear and tear caused by the additional driving force.

I had 29" Mountain King before and I loved them. Good durability, good grip (also in wet) and great Rolling.

Now I discovered these 2,8" 27,5ers and I have To say these are at least as good as the old ones that I had.
Great grip, great Rolling. Strenght and durability Will see after some time.
I have ridden for example with Forecasters, Rocket Rons, Kendas, Bontrager xr4's but the Mountain King's are easily Best option for me.
I do trail riding mostly. Some endurotrails sometimes and small bumps. I ride aprox 25-50 km per time about 2-5 times a week.
Some internetforums said that these are not very strong fom the sidewalls but My previous 29" Mountain King seemed To last forever and I rode them in the rocky conditions also.
I assembled 2,8" 27,5ers to a i35 rim as tubeless. Actual width (sidewalls) is 71-72 mm and height (rim outer circle) is about 67-69 mm.
Weight from the box was 831 g and 822 g. So they are Light also.
Hope these last long as My old ones did but we'll see about that.
