CONTINENTAL tires The Emperor Project 26 x 2.4 Black Chili Apex
After 2 years of development Conti read their new tires go on the runway and the testers were enthusiastic. Freeride legend Richie Schley commented: "You created a monster!" The Emperor 2.4 is due to its special profile always stable on the slopes. The tunnels in the central region provide good rolling behavior and excellent braking performance. In the curves it has an almost perfect fit for his shoulder lugs. A double carcass and the Apex technology guarantee an extremely high load capacity and breakdown resistance.
This tire has a particularly soft and grippy / sticky rubber compound. He is a pure competition tire with reduced mileage.
handmade in Germany
These tires are one of the top quality finishings produced most from Continental. They are sewn by hand in the factory in Korbach and put in workmanship and quality special standards.
Black Chili Compound
Black Chili means at Conti especially that grip, rolling resistance and durability combined on one level
be that one might almost believe in magic. Here Continental is just a only the very latest and best technologies. Polymers, down to the nano range optimized soot particles and fillers guarantee the unique performance of the Black Chili compound. He revolutionized the basic conflict between grip and rolling resistance. Approximately 30% more grip and an improved 26% less rolling resistance to the silica compound, provide better performance and safety.
Continental tires are completely made of high quality rubber compound. Thus, the tire can be worn down to the carcass without the superb properties of the rubber to lose!
Anyone who has ever driven a tire with Black Chili want anything else!
This technology took Conti its car tire production and transferred them to selected large-volume bicycle tires. Apex is a rubber profile, which is located between the carcass and the foot of the tire. The stiffened sidewalls minimize the distortion of the tire at high lateral loads and the risk of breakdowns. 360 TPI in 6 layers guarantee a high load capacity of the tread to stiffen without the tread. Apex tires are ideal for downhill and freeride. For this purpose, the tire pressure in favor of the grips can be reduced without risking to take a greater Durschlagrisiko.
