In this chapter, we explain the technologies that the manufacturer uses for this product.
BlackChili-Compound - the mixture makes it The Gretchen question of cycling. The running properties of a tire's rubber compound are largely determined by three interacting factors - static friction, rolling resistance and mileage. The dilemma: If you improve one of these factors, at least one other will get worse in return. A tire with maximum grip wears faster and rolls slower. If you make the tire faster or more durable, its grip decreases again.
With its BlackChili Compound, a tread compound that is always based on the latest findings in polymer and raw material research, Continental has delivered a lasting response to the cycling scene. Depending on the area of use of a tire, we specifically tune the mixture recipe - whether for racing or mountain biking, for time trial or downhill.
For BlackChili, they refine special synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber to form particularly high-performance tread compounds. Continental then applies carbon black particles to these mixtures, which in turn are optimized in terms of their shape and surface properties. The complex mixing technology is so sensitive that tires with BlackChili Compound are only produced in Korbach.
Compared to conventional silica compounds, this means higher mileage [+ 5%], a 26% improvement in rolling resistance, plus 30% more grip and consistent ride characteristics from the first to the last kilometer.
Active Comfort Technology The revolutionary approach in racing cycling. Integrated into the tire construction, the Active Comfort technology absorbs shocks and provides a superior driving experience.
Lazer grip Make you one with the street. The laser-cut micro-tread structure focuses on the shoulder area of the tire, giving you increased cornering grip.
Tubeless - the user-friendly tubeless system The TL technology is specially designed to adapt tubeless to the demands of racing cycling. Easy to assemble and reliable in use.
Specially designed, the tubeless foot seals off particularly by its shape and ensures a stable grip on the rim. Continental recommends the use of appropriate TL-Sealant.
