The famous tubular tire as Lightweight Edition! The tire is graced by the "Lightweight by Carbon Sports" writing for a really precious look, especially in combination with the Lightweight carbon wheels.
Competition is equipped with Continental's Black Chili Compound and Vectran puncture protection breaker. One layer of the cut resistant Vectran under the tread instead of two layers of nylon used before reduces the weight and improves rolling comfort and rolling resistance.
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 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 bike 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.
The latest Competition tubular features their BlackChili compound, which increases grip whilst lowering rolling resistance without affecting wear - truly phenomenal!
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.
More than 100 years experience in the development and production of bicycle tyres has made Continental a unique company within the industry. Continental is the only German bicycle tyre manufacturer to produce its tyres in Germany. Knowing this serves as a mighty incentive to there engineers and everyone else involved in the manufacturing process to constantly strive for further innovations. In their technology and development center in Korbach, they are constantly developing new revolutionary technologies such as the unbeatable Black Chili Compound and the ultimate Vectran Breaker anti-puncture technology, both used at the top end of race sport. These technologies demand sophisticated processes to ensure legendary end-product quality, and these innovations as well as the new “ProTection” and ”RaceSport” technology for MTB tyres, can only be manufactured in Continental's factory in Germany. In order to offer the best tyre for any application, they rely equally on dialogue with professional racers, hobby cyclists and everyday bike riders. This results not only in high-end products for top sports applications such as the new Podium TT or the revolutionary downhill tyre “Der Kaiser”, but also tyres for everyday use like the new innovative combination EcoContact/EcoContact Plus as a companion to the latest e-bike trend.
