Trail King

Continental

  • this tire shines on enduro bikes and "all mountain" bikes with a suspension travel of greater than 140mm, thanks to its comfortable and voluminous casing

  • multitude of small knobs guarantee best traction on any difficult trail

A new relationship between grip and rolling resistance

  • This unique tread rubber mixture which is only produced in our German factory has revolutionized bicycle tires.
  • BlackChili Compound improves rolling resistance by 26 % and provides 30 % more grip than activated silica compounds.
  • Premium tires with BlackChili Compound also impress with higher mileage and unlike many multi-compounds, provide a constant ride from the first to the last kilometer.

The advanced new compound

Based on activated silica compounds, this technology was originally intended as an performance level compound, but after intensive development at Continental's Korbach Research and Development Department Facility, an advanced new compound with outstanding grip and cross-country properties was developed. This new rubber mix, given the self explanatory name “PureGrip”, is ranked just behind Continental's BlackChili Compound and is being used in our performance products both in the road and mountain bike sectors. Whilst providing great grip, it is also long lasting and highly durable – both characteristics of Continental tires, which are exclusively manufactured in the factory in Hefei (Asia).
