CONTINENTAL tire Race King 26 x 2.20 BlackChili ProTection
The Race King starts the new season with a modified profile and a revised side wall. Above all, better interaction between rim and tire prevents air loss when the tire is to be driven tubeless.
The king of the race track is constantly conquering new titles and defending the old ones. Many professionals swear by this tire. Thanks to constant further development, Conti has made this tire even faster, safer and improved self-cleaning. The rolling resistance is very similar to that of a slick tire, which guarantees a high speed. Despite everything, the tread develops a lot of grip on dry, compact and sandy soils.
Handmade in Germany
These tires are among the highest quality produced by Continental. They are sewn by hand in the factory in Korbach and set special standards in workmanship and quality.
At Conti, BlackChili means above all that grip, rolling resistance and durability are combined at a level that you can 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 BlackChili compound. It revolutionized the basic conflict between grip and rolling resistance. Approx. 30% more grip and a 26% better rolling resistance compared to the silica compound, ensure more performance and safety.
Continental tires consist entirely of this high-quality rubber compound. Thus, the tires can be driven down to the carcass without losing the first-class properties of the rubber!
The ProTection technology gives the tires a perfect mix of smooth running, grip and puncture protection. It achieves the improved puncture protection through a continuous additional layer, which increases the resistance to injuries of any kind. However, this does not reduce the good running properties of Conti tires. Another great feature is the tubeless ready function. Due to the reinforcement, tires with ProTection casing are best suited for tubeless assembly with sealing milk. The additional material minimizes the formation of micropores and thus speeds up sealing immensely.
