Black Chili Compound
At Conti, Black Chili means above all that grip, rolling resistance and durability are all on one level
become that one might almost believe in magic. Continental simply uses the very latest and best technologies. Polymers, soot particles and fillers optimized down to the nano range guarantee the unique performance of the Black Chili compound. It revolutionized the basic conflict between grip and rolling resistance. Approx. 30% more grip and a 26% improvement in rolling resistance compared to the silica compound ensure better performance and safety.
Continental tires consist entirely of this high-quality rubber compound. Thus, the tires can be worn down to the carcass without losing the first-class properties of the rubber!
Anyone who has ever driven a tire with Black Chili would not want anything else!
A higher puncture resistance and lower weight are the advantages of the Vectran breaker. Vectran is more cut resistant than aramid, 5 times more tensile than steel and lighter than nylon thread without affecting rolling resistance. Thus, it offers the ideal protective layer for the tire.
Vectran was developed for airbag systems in the automotive and aerospace industries.
