Dominance has a new name! For almost 2 years Conti engineers worked together with the best downhillers and freeriders on this planet on the Rammstein project. Richey Schley draws as a result: "You created a monster"! The monster is supported in the corners by wedge-shaped shoulder studs that deliver progressive cornering behavior. This makes the Kaiser Project 2.4 well controllable even at the limits.
The ramps in the middle area roll off quickly and bite into the ground during braking. The more advanced APEX and a double carcass make the Kaiser more torsion-resistant and puncture-resistant than ever. The 2.4 carcass qualifies it as an agile weapon made for the toughest World Cup tracks. "Handmade in Germany".
This unique tread rubber mixture which is only produced in Continental German factory has revolutionised bicycle tyres. The resultant compound showed a new relationship between grip and rolling resistance. This "Elevated level", as it was previously known, was given the name "BlackChili". The latest polymers, nanoscale soot particles and optimized fillers all guarantee a unique performance, from downhill MTB tyres to the time trial tires of the ProTour, they are second to none in their respective areas. BlackChili Compound improves rolling resistance by 26% and provides 30% more grip than activated silica compounds. Premium tyres with BlackChili Compound also impress with higher mileage and unlike many multi-compounds, provide a constant ride from the first to the last kilometre.
The sidewall of freeride and downhill tires is subjected to extraordinarily high loads. A rubber profile between the carcass layers ensures stability. The Apex sits on the tire core and reinforces the sides of the tire. The tire does not impact on the rim during rough rides over rocky ground. The tire stays upright better when riding around bends. It does not bend over the sides of the rim when subjected to transverse loads, and always stays true to the course.
