Technical details

A new relationship between grip and rolling resistance

  • This unique tread rubber mixture which is only produced in our German factory has revolutionised bicycle tyres.
  • BlackChili Compound improves rolling resistance by 26 % and provides 30 % more grip than activated silica compounds.
  • Premium tyres with BlackChili Compound also impress with higher mileage and unlike many multi-compounds, provide a constant ride from the first to the last kilometre.

The advanced new compound

Based on activated silica compounds, this technology was originally intended as an performance level compound, but after intensive development at our Korbach Research and Development Department Facility, an advanced new compound with outstanding grip and cross-country properties was developed. This new rubber mix, given the self explanatory name “PureGrip”, is ranked just behind our BlackChili Compound and is being used in our performance products both in the road and mountain bike sectors. Whilst providing great grip, it is also long lasting and highly durable – both characteristics of Continental tyres, which are exclusively manufactured in the factory in Hefei (Asia).
