Black Chili Compound
The rolling characteristics of the rubber compound of a tyre 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 in return. Black Chili Compound is the name of Continental's revolutionary tread compound based on the latest findings in polymer and raw material research. For Black Chili, Continental refines newly developed synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber to produce particularly high-performance tread compounds. Conti adds nanoscale carbon black particles to these rubbers, which are optimised in shape and surface properties in order to match the compound to the respective application of the tyre. Tyres with Black Chili Compound achieve an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to activated silica tyres Black Chili tyres have 26 % lower rolling resistance, 30 % higher static friction value (grip) and 5 % higher mileage. Whether on a Road bike or MTB - the speed and grip advantage is clearly noticeable! The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tyres with Black Chili are produced exclusively at Continental in Korbach.

ProTection Apex
Enduro is the name of the discipline that has enjoyed increasing popularity for some time now. It is the technical challenge of fast, hard descents and strength-sapping climbs. This requires a combination of puncture-proof construction and good rolling characteristics as well as excellent grip. The proven ProTection ply safely protects the tyre from cuts and punctures without excessively increasing the weight. The additional Apex sidewall stabilisation protects the tyre safely from punctures even at low pressure. For weight optimisation, it is also possible to run the tyre together with Continental RevoSealant to make it tubeless ready. With a grippy BlackChili compound tyre, it's the perfect pairing for efficient uphill and puncture-free riding.

The tyres with Continental ECO technology benefit from over 100 years of experience in the development of moped and motorcycle tyres. Optimised and recommended for E-bikes up to 25 km/h, they guarantee low rolling resistance and good puncture protection thanks to their particularly high-quality construction. The durability was tested especially for E-bikes to counteract the premature wear and tear caused by the additional driving force.
