The Continental Competition tubular is the tyre of pro road racers and triathletes.
It is the combination of the dimpled Black Chili profile and one layer of the cut resistant Vectran keeps all of these athletes coming back for more.
TECHNICAL DETAILS :
Continental refine newly developed synthetic rubbers with natural rubber with the proven high-performance tread compound.
They use these rubbers with special nanometric carbon soot particles, which are optimized in shape and surface properties for best uses for the intended tyre.
BlackChili Compound reaches an unprecedented of performance. Tyres with BlackChili Compound reach an unprecedented level of performance.
Compared to the previous best Activated Silica Compound, BlackChili tyres have 26% less rolling resistance, a 30 % higher friction value (grip) and a 5 % increase in mileage.
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 tire 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.
