CycloKing is a first-class competition tyre that combines safe cornering with smooth rolling characteristics. The versatile and smooth-running tread adapts perfectly to any surface and the uncompromisingly fast and World Cup-tested RaceSport carcass offers excellent grip, high mileage and efficient rolling thanks to the Black Chili Compound.
Black Chili Compound
This is the name of the revolutionary tread compound based on the latest findings in polymer and raw material research. For BlackChili, Continental refines newly developed synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber to produce particularly high-performance profile compounds. Continental adds nanoscale carbon black particles to these rubbers, which are optimized in shape and surface properties in order to adapt the compound to the respective application of the tire.
Tyres with BlackChili Compound achieve an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to activated silica tyres, BlackChili tyres have 26% lower rolling resistance, 30% higher grip and 5% higher mileage.
Uncompromisingly designed for use in mountain bike racing: The RaceSport carcasses combine consistent lightweight construction and noticeably better puncture protection at the very highest level. Together with renowned professional mountain bikers, Continental has thus created the perfect starting point for competition tires. Handmade in Germany, they offer 30% better puncture protection than Supersonic tyres. The construction makes the difference - particularly fine and high-quality nylon fabric with elaborate, protective rubber coating and universal foot. Together with the legendary Black Chili Compound the ultimate combination for XC-Race and Marathon.
