The Speed King is the tuning tyre for racing machines and carbon hardtails with minimal weight. The drive-oriented profile geometry with the lowest rolling resistance requires a trained hand. The tyre has an uncompromisingly fast and world cup proven RaceSport carcass. Thanks to the BlackChili Compound it offers excellent grip and efficient unwinding. The tyre is a pure competition tyre with reduced mileage.
BlackChili - It's all in the mix
The unique tread compound, which can only be produced in Germany, revolutionises bicycle tyres. BlackChili Compound improves rolling resistance by 26 % and at the same time offers approx. 30 % more grip compared to activated silica compounds. The premium tires with BlackChili Compound also convince with higher mileage and - in contrast to many multiple compounds - consistent driving characteristics from the first to the last kilometre.
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.
