Black Chili Compound: With Continental’s unique tread compound, which is produced only in Germany, they have revolutionised the sport of cycling. With the legendary Black Chili compound they have answered the eternal question of the best balance of grip and rolling resistance for cycling. The latest polymers as well as specially developed carbon black particles and filler materials guarantee unique performance, be it on a road, gravel or a mountain bike, for time trialling or downhill.
Vectran Breaker Puncture Protection: Vectran is spun from liquid crystal-polymer. This way a thermoplastic, multiple-thread yarn is created. As a comparison: This partially crystalline fabric is more cut-resistant than aramide and its tensile strength is five times higher than that of steel. A Vectran breaker is lighter, more flexible and effective against cuts than a comparable nylon breaker. Without effecting rolling resistance.
Active Comfort Technology: The revolutionary approach in cycling. Embedded in the tyre construction the Active Comfort Technology absorbs vibrations and smoothens your ride.
Lazer Grip, to make you one with the road. The lazered micro profile structure expands over the tyre’s shoulder and provides outstanding cornering.
Tubeless Ready: Continental’s carcass construction is robust and impervious against damage and penetration from foreign objects. The result: versatile, low weight and an attractive design. In addition, tyres made using this technology can also be used as Tubeless or with an inner tube. All Continental Tubeless Ready tyres are Hookless compatible to its limited max pressure. Please check wheel instruction and tyre packaging for detailed information.
