Time Trail - Conti's specialist when it comes to the tough competition against the clock. This tyre turns every triathlon and time trial bike into a fighting machine - with an ultra-fast semi-slick professional, reduced puncture protection, excellent grip and efficient rolling ability thanks to BlackChili Compound.
This is a competition tyre with optimised rolling resistance and limited mileage!
The reference in puncture protection - A synthetically produced high-tech fibre with spider silk as a natural model. Vectran is spun from the molten liquid polymer Vectra and processed into a multi-fibre yarn. Enormously tear-resistant at the lowest possible weight - just the right thing to use as puncture protection in a Continental premium tire. And all this without negatively affecting the rolling resistance.
Black Chili Compound
A difficult question in cycling. The running properties of a tyre's rubber compound are largely determined by three interacting factors - static friction [grip], rolling resistance and mileage. The dilemma: If one of these factors is improved, at least one other will deteriorate in return. A tyre with maximum grip wears faster and rolls slower. If you make the tyre faster or more durable, its grip is reduced again.
With the BlackChili Compound, a tread compound that is always based on the latest polymer and raw material research, Continental has provided the cycling scene with a lasting answer. Depending on the area of application of a tire, the compound recipe is specifically adjusted - whether for the racing bike or mountain bike, for time trials or downhill.
