BlackChili - It’s All About How You Mix It
With Continental's unique tread compound, which is produced only in Germany, they have revolutionised the tyre market for cyclists. With the legendary BlackChili Compound they have answered the right formula for the best balance between grip and rolling resistance for cycling.
Regular test wins confirm the measurable and noticeable advantages for the cyclist, established in the laboratory and on the road. The latest polymers, as well as specially developed carbon black particles and filler materials, guarantee unique performance.
Active Comfort Technology
A fresh approach to cycling. Embedded in the tire construction the Active Comfort Technology absorbs vibrations and smoothens your ride.
Lazer Grip, to make you one with the road. The micro profile structure expands over the tire’s shoulder and provides outstanding cornering.
Vectran™ - The benchmark in puncture protection
Vectran™ is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran™ is a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran™ is spun from the melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed further to a multi-strand thread. Spider silk-like Vectran™ has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight: Exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bicycle tire as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran™ Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran™ Breaker does not adversely affect the rolling resistance.
