BlackChili Compound
The Gretchen question of cycling. The running properties of a tyre's rubber compound are largely determined by three interacting factors - static friction, rolling resistance and mileage. The dilemma: If one of these factors is improved, at least one other factor deteriorates. A tyre with maximum grip will wear faster and roll slower. If the tyre is made faster or more durable, its grip is reduced again.

With the BlackChili Compound, a tread compound that is always based on the latest findings in polymer and raw materials research, Continental has provided the cycling scene with a lasting answer. Depending on the area of application of a tyre, the compound formulation is specifically adjusted - whether for road bikes or mountain bikes, time trials or downhill. For BlackChili, Continental refines special synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber to produce particularly high-performance tread compounds. Soot particles are then added to these mixtures, which in turn are optimized in shape and surface properties. The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tires with BlackChili Compound are produced exclusively in Korbach.

Uncompromisingly designed for use in mountain bike racing: The RaceSport carcasses combine consistent lightweight construction and noticeably better puncture protection at the very highest level. Together with renowned professional mountain bikers, Continental has thus created the perfect starting point for competition tires. Handmade in Germany, they offer rolling resistance and breakdown protection at world cup level. The construction makes the difference: a particularly fine and flexible nylon fabric, elaborately manufactured, protective rubber coating and universal foot. Together with the legendary BlackChili compound, this is the ultimate combination for XC and Marathon Race.


  • Impressive at cross-country races and marathons, for hardtails and race fullys
  • Low rolling resistance, a voluminous carcass and very good self-damping properties
  • Low profile: best conditions for frequent riders who can do it
