BlackChili Compound: It’s all about how you mix it. With Continental's unique tread compound, which is produced only in Germany, They have revolutionised the sport of cycling. The legendary BlackChili Compound has 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.
Lazer Grip: The lazered micro profile structure expands over the tyre’s shoulder and provides outstanding cornering. Lazer Grip makes you one with the road. Active
Comfort Technology: The revolutionary approach in cycling. Embedded in the tyre construction the Active Comfort Technology absorbs vibrations and smoothens your ride.
Vectran™ Breaker: Vectran™ is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran™ is a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran™ is spun from the melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed further to a multi-strand thread. Spider silk like Vectran™ has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight: Exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bicycle tyre as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran™ Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran™ Breaker does not adversely affect the rolling resistance.
First ride with the dongle this morning and I'm thrilled!!! I did the group ride without being dropped which is why I got the bike. There is a 5 mile stretch where they crank it up to 23-24 mph and I had been getting dropped there even though I could maintain 20 on my own. NOT this morning!! I had been disappointed that I still was just short and still couldn't ride with my friends, I was thinking of selling the bike. Thank you, thank you for offering this! It was so exciting rolling in with the group to coffee at the end of the ride!
