Let's get dirty: der Mud King tyre by Continental
When other tyres reach their limits, the Mud King shows its claws. With the wrong tyre a Downhill ride in the rain is the highest level of punishment. With the Mud King it is pure joy. Its aggressive lug design rides the muddiest mud no problem. On top of that the rolling resistance is low and the tyre is self-cleaning. The 2.3" version leaves plenty of room for tyre, mud and frame. The carcass of this kingly dirt eater is based on the double layer Downhill Kaiser and Baron tyres. Additionally Apex is added to strengthen the sidewalls and protect against impact flats. More mud? No problem!

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 sidewalls of freeride and downhill tyres are subjected to extraordinarily high loads. A rubber profile between the carcass layers ensures stability. The Apex sits on the tyre bead and reinforces the sidewalls of the tyre. The tyre is thus protected from impact with the rim during rough rides over rocky ground. The tyre stays more upright when cornering. It does not bend over the sides of the rim when subjected to transverse loads, and always stays true to the course.
