This MTB tyre bridges the ap between the Race King and Mountain King II models by Continental. It is designed for both XC and trail use as it delivers fantastic speed as its main priority. Continental has also equipped this model with their BlackChili compound, which provides unrivalled grip, self-cleaning and low rolling resistance. Its cleverly designed tread pattern also ensures ample traction and the rolling sensation of a much slicker tyre. Ready for every off-road ride, this MTB tyre comes complete with a ProTection layer under the tread and in its sidewalls for brilliant resistance against cuts and punctures.
BlackChili Compound: The crucial balance. The rolling properties of the rubber compound of a tyre are primarily determined by three interacting factors – stiction [grip], rolling resistance and mileage [longevity] . The dilemma: If you improve any of these factors it can have a detrimental effect on at least one of the others. A tyre with maximum grip wears quicker and rolls more slowly. If you then make a tyre roll faster and more durable, grip, in turn, is reduced.
With our BlackChili Compound, a tread compound which is always based on the latest knowledge of polymers and raw material research, we have supplied the cycling industry with an enduring solution. Depending on the application of a tyre, we adjust the compound formulation for the specific discipline – for road or mountain biking, time trialling or downhill racing.
How does that work? For BlackChili, we refine special synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber to high-performance tread mixtures. To these mixtures we then add soot particles, which in turn are optimised in shape and surface properties. The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tyres with BlackChili Compound are produced exclusively in our German Korbach plant.
ProTection Technology: The ProTection technology gives our tires their perfect mix of fast rolling, grip and puncture protection. Four plies under the tread and three in the sidewalls make this possible. The whole tire attains greater resilience and becomes less vulnerable to damage.
