The king of the World Cup: the Speed King RaceSport 26"/27.5"/29 "folding tire from Continental
26/ 27.5 /29er X 2.2''
Anyone who knows the Offenburg XC course knows what the Speed King was developed for. Hard, dry surfaces where only one thing counts: speed. The semi slick is reduced to a minimum of rolling resistance and weight. The slightly inflated outer lug gives grip in curves and allows you to keep up the speed. The middle section consists of flat, wedge-shaped studs that keep rolling resistance low and provide sufficient traction on the rear wheel. The voluminous 2.2 RaceSport carcass offers reliable puncture protection in racing and can be driven with low air pressures. The extreme properties of the tire also come at a price: reduced mileage and limited wet grip. A thoroughbred racer - handmade in Germany!

premium tires, made to deliver top performance. Latest technologies, developed with the most successful athletes in the world and handcrafted by experienced specialists in Korbach (Handmade in Germany). Exquisite materials for the highest quality are used here.
The running properties of the rubber compound of a tire are largely determined by three interacting factors: static friction (grip), rolling resistance and mileage. The dilemma: if one of these factors is improved, at least one other factor deteriorates in return. Black Chili Compound is the name of Continental's revolutionary tread compound, which is based on the latest findings in polymer and raw material research. For black chilli, Continental refines newly developed synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber into particularly high-performance profile mixtures. Conti adds soot particles in the nano range to these rubbers, which are optimized in shape and surface properties in order to adapt the mixture to the intended use of the tire. Tires with Black Chili Compound reach an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to the activated silica tires, black chili tires have a 26% lower rolling resistance, a 30% higher coefficient of friction (grip) and a 5% higher mileage. Regardless of whether on a racing bike or on an MTB - the speed and grip advantage is clearly noticeable! The complex mixing technology is so sensitive that tires with Black Chili Compound are only produced at Continental in Korbach.
Uncompromisingly designed for use in mountain bike racing: The RaceSport carcasses combine consistent lightweight construction and noticeably better puncture protection at the highest level. Together with well-known professional mountain bikers, Conti has created the perfect starting point for competition tires. Handmade in Germany, they offer 30% better puncture protection than Supersonic tires. The construction makes the difference - particularly fine and high-quality nylon fabric with elaborate, protective rubber coating and a universal foot. Together with the legendary Black Chili Compound, the ultimate combination for XC-Race and Marathon.
