The Grand Prix Force is the tuning rear tyre for agile handling and grip-strong propulsion with your racing bike or triathlon bike. With the Force you get a tyre for a comfortable rear wheel with good grip. With the excellent puncture protection provided by the Vectran puncture protection insert, nothing can go wrong during training and during the race. With the tyre you have excellent grip, high mileage and efficient rolling thanks to the BlackChili compound.
BlackChili - It's all in the mix
The unique tread compound, which can only be produced in Germany, revolutionises bicycle tyres. BlackChili Compound improves rolling resistance by 26 % and at the same time offers approx. 30 % more grip compared to activated silica compounds. The premium tires with BlackChili Compound also convince with higher mileage and - in contrast to many multiple compounds - consistent driving characteristics from the first to the last kilometre.
Vectran - The reference in breakdown protection
Vectran is a synthetically produced high-tech fibre with a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran is a liquid crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran is spun from the molten liquid polymer Vectra and processed into a multi-fibre yarn. Spider silk as well as Vectran have an enormous tear strength at low weight. Just the right properties to be used in a Continental top tyre as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than comparable nylon breakers. The Vectran Breaker does not influence the rolling resistance.
TPS - A pioneering front and rear tyre system for racing bikes
The TirePositioning System takes the last ounce of what is technically feasible at present. Motorcyclists have known for a long time that different demands are placed on a front wheel tyre than on its rear counterpart. The narrower front tyre reduces drag and improves steering. A tread compound with optimised grip provides the necessary grip, especially when cornering in wet conditions. The wider rear tyre has improved traction and comfort thanks to larger contact patch. Thanks to a compound with optimised rolling resistance and a larger contact area on the rear wheel, abrasion is reduced. The result is a groundbreaking front and rear tyre system for bicycle racing, found in the GP Attack and Force combination.
