Details & Technology

Casing (choose from the following)

  • ProTection Apex

    Enduro specific casing designed to give hard hitting protection but keep the rolling weight lower. A protection layer sandwiched between 240tpi layers with extra 180tpi layers under the tread

  • Shieldwall

    ShieldWall combines the optimum combination of high puncture protection and low rolling resistance with low weight. This is made possible by an additional, all-round puncture protection layer, which consists of a finely woven cross fabric

Compound (choose from the following)

  • Black Chili MTB

    Black Chili is continental's signature compound, and uses the latest knowledge and technological advancements to maximise grip and traction while keeping it fast rolling and durable. Depending on the intended use of the tyre, the blend is adjusted from gravity orientated soft grip, all the way up to fast rolling race tyres

  • Pure Grip

    Based on activated silica compounds, this technology was originally intended as a performance level compound, but after intensive development at their German R&D facility, an advanced new compound with outstanding grip, elasticity and rolling properties was developed
