Let's get dirty: the Mud King Tyre by Continental


When other tyres are at their limit, the Mud King shows its claws. With the wrong tyre downhill in the rain is the maximum penalty. With the Mud King a royal pleasure. Its aggressive lug design grips even the deepest mud without mercy. The exceptional self-cleaning properties and low rolling resistance are also outstanding. In 2.3" width there is enough space for tyres, mud and frame. The carcass of the royal dirt tiller is based on the double ply downhill base of the Emperor and Baron. Additionally reinforced with Apex, the Mud King defies insidious punctures. The next low pressure area won't be an issue.

Technology:

Premium
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. Black Chili Compound is the name of Continental's revolutionary tread compound based on the latest findings in polymer and raw material research. 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.

Apex
Used successfully for years in passenger car tyres, the Apex stabilises the tyre during cornering. A technology that also makes sense for large-volume bicycle tyres: the Apex is a rubber profile that is placed between the carcass plies on the base of the tyre. It stiffens the sidewalls of the tyre and thus minimises torsion under high lateral loads. In addition, the stiffened sidewalls reduce the risk of puncture and prevent the tyre from slipping off the rim. These properties predestine the Apex for Conti downhill and freeride tyres: the operating pressure can be further reduced in favour of grip without having to accept spongy cornering behaviour or an increased risk of puncture.
