The high performance tire in the field. Faster than the standard GP 4000 S II model due to a lighter tread construction.
The reference in puncture protection.
A synthetically produced high tech fibre with natural silk. Vectran™ is spun from the molten liquid polymer Vectra and further processed into a multifilament yarn. Extremely tear-resistant for minimal weight – perfectly suited to be used as puncture protection in Premium tyres from Continental, and without affecting rolling resistance.
With our unique tread compound, which is produced only in Germany, we have revolutionised the sport of cycling. With the legendary BlackChili Compound we have answered the eternal question of the best balance of grip and rolling resistance for cycling. Regular test wins confirm the measureable and noticeable advantages for the cyclist, established in the laboratory and on the road. The latest polymers as well as specially developed carbon black particles and filler materials guarantee unique performance, be it on a road or a mountain bike, for time trialling or downhill.
