CONTINENTAL tire Speed King II 29 x 2.20 RaceSport Black Chili
Anyone who knows the Offenburg XC course knows what the Speed King was developed for. Hard, dry surfaces where only one thing counts: speed. The SemiSlick is reduced to a minimum of rolling resistance and weight. The slightly inflated outer lug gives grip in curves and allows you to keep the speed high. The middle section consists of flat, wedge-shaped studs that keep rolling resistance low and provide sufficient traction on the rear wheel.
The voluminous 2.2 RaceSport carcass offers reliable puncture protection in racing and can be driven with low air pressures. The extreme properties of the tire also come at a price: reduced mileage and limited wet grip.
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!
Anyone who has ever driven a tire with black chili doesn't want anything else!
