A crucial issue of cycling. The sliding properties of a tire's rubber compound are determined by three interacting factors - static friction [grip], rolling resistance and mileage. The dilemma: If one of these factors is improved, at least one other factor deteriorates. A tire with maximum grip wears faster and rolls more slowly. If the tire is made faster or more resistant, its grip is reduced.
With BlackChili Compound, a tread compound always based on the latest discoveries in research on polymers and raw materials, Continental has given a lasting answer. Depending on the application of a tire, the compound formulation is specifically adapted - both for competitions and for mountain biking, for time trials or for downhill. For BlackChili, Continental refines special synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber to produce particularly performing tread compounds. Soot particles are then added to these mixtures, which in turn are optimized in terms of shape and surface properties. The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tires with BlackChili Compound are produced exclusively in Korbach.
Designed without compromise for MTB / road use: RaceSport carcasses combine a light and constant structure and significantly better puncture protection. Together with renowned mountain bike professionals, Continental has created the perfect starting point for competition tires. Handmade in Germany, they offer puncture protection and rolling resistance reduced to World Cup levels. The construction makes the difference: a particularly fine and quality nylon fabric has been used with the protective rubber coating. Together with the legendary Black Chili Compound, it is the definitive combination for XC and Marathon Race.
