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.
Uncompromisingly designed for use in Mountain bike racing: The RaceSport carcasses combine consistent lightweight construction and extraordinary puncture protection at the highest level. The construction makes the difference - particularly fine and high-quality nylon fabric with an elaborate, protective rubber coating and universal base. Together with the legendary BlackChili Compound the ultimate combination for XC-Race and Marathon.
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. BlackChili Compound is the name of Continental's revolutionary tread compound based on the latest findings in polymer and raw material research. For BlackChili, Continental refines newly developed synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber into 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 BlackChili Compound achieve an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to activated silica tyres, BlackChili 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 BlackChili Compound are produced exclusively at Continental in Korbach.
