Continental Tires – Cycling Expertise from Korbach Since 1871

Continental bike tires contain knowledge and experience accumulated from 150 years spent manufacturing tires: the company from Hanover began with solid tires for carriages and bicycles back in 1871. As the first German manufacturer of pneumatic bicycle tires and developer of the first grooved tire, “Conti” established their reputation as an innovative quality tire manufacturer. Then the first tubeless tire and first driverless vehicle followed, among other things. And with the first serial bicycle tire made from dandelion rubber, the Taraxagum, Continental received the German Sustainability Award. Nowadays, Continental - as the only German bicycle tire manufacturer - still produces their high-end products in Germany. All Continental bike tires made from the BlackChili compound are developed, produced and tested exclusively in Korbach under the strictest test criteria.

The Continental BlackChili Compound – Maximum Grip & Minimum Rolling Resistance in One Bicycle Tire

Identifying new bike tire requirements and channelling these into creating suitable products is an important part of Conti's DNA. In addition to experienced engineers, Continental also relies on their extensive interactions with the “Conti Family”, made up of the Atherton race team, as well as professionals like Danny MacAskill, Patrick Seabase and Jan Frodeno. The development process then results in revolutionary tire compounds and extremely resistant Continental inner tubes that cover every cycling discipline and wheel size. Examples include the legendary BlackChili compound, ProTection Apex technology for Continental MTB tires and Vectran breaker puncture protection for Continental road bike tires, among others.

The BlackChili compound is produced exclusively in Germany and possesses unique properties, revolutionising the approach to the fundamental conflict between grip and rolling resistance. Special synthetic rubbers are mixed with natural rubber and soot particles optimised down to nanolevel. This mixture is then processed to form a high-performance tread rubber compound. The compound formula is adapted to the requirements of the relevant cycling discipline. As a result, Continental tires are able to provide maximum grip and high mileage with minimal rolling resistance.
