Hot on the scoring hunt with the Continental Sprinter featuring the reliable Safety System Breaker puncture protection. Its flexible carcass and non-slip rubber compound keep the contact even in fast 90° curves and due to the low and good acceleration it is certainly the fastest on the last 400 meters.
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.
Continental SafetySystem - Systematic breakdown protection
The SafetySystem Breaker is made of kevlar-reinforced, high-strength nylon fabric. Puncture and cut-resistant, yet light and flexible, the tyre adapts better to the ground. Without noticeably increasing weight or rolling resistance, it protects the carcass from foreign bodies and contributes to a long service life of the tyre. Tyres with SafetySystem Breaker also offer particularly comfortable driving characteristics.
