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.
