Continental developed a tread pattern that is studded enough to work well in muddy conditions, yet roll like a semi slick in a straight line. The tall shoulder lugs do provide great bite in the loose and wet corners and of course, their special BlackChili compound boosts grip in all situations whether they be hard & dry, cold & wet, roots, off-cambers, grass or stone. When the tire deforms under impact with the ground, the BlackChili compound absorbs the shock and propels you forward like no other tire. It's fast, grippy and it lasts as long as a harder compound tire, giving you great value for money and the 32mm RaceSport version is UCI legal.
Designed without compromise for use in mountain bike racing: The RaceSport casings combine consistent lightweight construction and noticeable superior puncture protection at the highest level. In cooperation with renowned professional mountain bikers we have created the perfect basis for competition tires. Handmade in Germany, they offer rolling friction and puncture protection of World Cup quality. The structure makes the difference: a particularly fine and flexible nylon fabric with elaborately manufactured protecting rubber lining and universal base. Together with the legendary BlackChili Compound, this is the ultimate combination for XC and Marathon Race.
Continental refine newly developed synthetic rubbers with natural rubber with the proven high-performance tread compound. They use these rubbers with special nanometric carbon soot particles, which are optimized in shape and surface properties for best uses for the intended tire. BlackChili Compound reaches an unprecedented of performance. Tires with BlackChili Compound reach an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to the previous best Activated Silica Compound, BlackChili tires have 26% less rolling resistance, a 30 % higher friction value (grip) and a 5 % increase in mileage.
More than 100 years experience in the development and production of bicycle tires has made Continental a unique company within the industry. Continental is the only German bicycle tire manufacturer to produce its tires in Germany. Knowing this serves as a mighty incentive to our engineers and everyone else involved in the manufacturing process to constantly strive for further innovations. In our technology and development center in Korbach, we are constantly developing new revolutionary technologies such as the unbeatable Black Chili Compound and the ultimate Vectran™ Breaker anti-puncture technology, both used at the top end of race sport. These technologies demand sophisticated processes to ensure our legendary end-product quality, and these innovations as well as the new “ProTection” and ”RaceSport” technology for MTB tires, can only be manufactured in our factory in Germany – “Handmade in Germany”. In order to offer the best tire for any application, we rely equally on dialog with our professional racers, hobby cyclists and everyday bike riders. This results not only in high-end products for top sports applications such as the new Podium TT or the revolutionary downhill tire “Der Kaiser”, but also tires for everyday use like the new innovative combination EcoContact/EcoContact Plus as a companion to the latest e-bike trend. As a global player, Continental also maintains high-tech production facilities outside of Germany, where Continental tires are produced for you with an equal degree of care and dedication. One thing all Continental bicycle tires have in common is that they are developed in the technology center in Korbach, Germany, where they also undergo strict inspection. Our heart and soul is behind the phrase “Handmade in Germany”, with all of its products and technologies.
