Continental Competition Tube Tire - 622

Continental Competition Tube Tire - 622

The Grand Master.
The Competition stands for true handwork with a needle and thread. It is one of the most dependable tyres in the pro peloton. It has proven itself time and time again on the world stages often accompanying prominent cyclists to their victory. Continental is proud of their Competition, that is why they always keep it on the road to victory. The Competition was the first tyre in their range to be equipped with BlackChili Compound and Vectran™ Breaker. Made in Germany!

BlackChili Compound
This unique tread rubber mixture which is only produced in Continental German factory has revolutionized 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 tyres 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 fi rst to the last kilometer.

Vectran™ Breaker
Vectran™ is spun from Vectra liquid crystal polymer, which results in a thread that is thermoplastic and has multifilaments. This semicrystalline material is harder then aramid, has five times higher tensile strength than steel and in addition, is also lighter than comparable nylon thread. Vectran™ maintains these attributes even in the most adverse weather conditions.
