With Continental’s Black Chili compound, a tread compound which is always based on the latest knowledge of polymers and raw material research, Continental has supplied the cycling industry with an enduring solution. Depending on the application of a tire, Continental adjusts the compound formulation for the specific discipline – for road or mountain biking, time trialing or downhill racing.

How does that work? Black Chili refines special synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber to high-performance tread mixtures. To these mixtures it then adds soot particles, which in turn are optimized in shape and surface properties.
