Details & Technology

Casing (choose from the following)

  • ProTection

    The ProTection technology gives Continental tyres 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 tyre attains greater resilience and becomes less vulnerable to damage.

  • RaceSport

    the RaceSport carcass uses light constuction to provide 30% better protection against punctures than the previous lightweight option

  • 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

  • Performance

    The Performance casing is designed with longevity, durability and intensive use in mind

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

  • Standard

    Standard single rubber compound focussed on durability, longevity and performance
