CONTINENTAL tire Race King 29 x 2.20 BlackChili ProTection
The Race King starts the 2018 season with a modified profile and a revised sidewall. Above all, a better interaction between the rim and the tire prevents air loss if the tire is to be driven tubeless.
The king of the racetrack is constantly conquering new titles and defending the old. Many professionals swear by these tires. Due to the 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 Korbach factory 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 one can almost believe in magic. Continental simply uses all of the 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% improved rolling resistance compared to the silica mixture ensure more performance and safety.
Continental tires are made 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!
The ProTection technology gives the tires a perfect mix of smooth running, grip and puncture protection. The improved puncture protection is achieved through a continuous additional layer, which increases resistance to injuries of all kinds. However, this does not reduce the good running properties of Conti tires. Another great feature is the tubeless ready function. Thanks to the reinforcement, tires with ProTection carcass are best suited for tubeless mounting with sealing milk. The additional material minimizes the formation of micropores and thus speeds up sealing enormously.
