    Having achieved legendary status, the Race King heralded the advent of the current Continental ‘King’ range. Two World Championships on the Race King, as well as countless other wins. When it’s dry, the Race King is as fast and provides as much traction as can be asked, and rolling resistance rivals that of many road tires. The ProTection models are developed and hand made in Germany
    with our best materials such as BlackChili compound and Revo Tubeless Ready
    they guarantee significantly better rolling resistance and puncture protection as a result.

    Technology:
    • Premium: Continental Premium tires are made or the highest performance. They use the latest technologies developed with the world’s most successful athletes. The tires are also handmade by experienced specialists in Korback, Germany. Only the best materials is used for the highest quality and exceptional properties.
    • Black Chili Compound: The running properties of the rubber compound of a tire are largely determined by three interacting factors: static friction [grip], rolling resistance and mileage. The dilemma is that you improve one of these factors, and in turn, worsen at least one other factor. Black Chili Compound, the revolutionary compound from Continental, is based on the latest findings on polymer and other raw material research. For BlackChili, Continental redefined newly developed synthetic rubbers with natural rubber with the proven high performance tread compound. These rubbers are used with special nanometric carbon soot particles, which are optimized in shape and surface properties for best uses for the intended tire. BlackChili Compound reaches an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to the previous best Activated Silica Compound, BlackChili tires have 26 % less rolling resistance, a 30 % higher friction value [grip] and a 5 % increase in mileage. Whether on the road or mountain bike, speed and grip advantages are very noticeable. The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tires with BlackChili Compound can only be produced exclusively in Continental's German Korbach factory.
    • ProTection: Better than ever before, the new Continental ProTection casing. The extra all-round puncture protection layer renders the casings especially durable and insensitive to damage or penetration from foreign elements. Treads and sidewalls are equally protected, and are 25 % lighter and offer 30 % more puncture protection than their predecessors protected by DuraSkin®. Rolling resistance and absorption has also significantly improved. The new Made in Germany technology allows it to withstand even the hardest trails across the world. What’s more: they’re universally usable, are inspired by aesthetically pleasing sidewall design. The new Revolution Tubeless Ready Bead improves the application of Tubeless Ready tires.
