Description

Each year, Continental gets requests from ProTour teams and professional triathletes for sponsorship. They all want the same thing...Continental Competition tubulars! Recently, Simon Gerrans of Orica-GreenEdge won the Liege-Bastogne-Liege and wore the yellow jersey at the 2013 Tour de France. Continental tyres are again at the forefront on the UCI ProTour.

Add these wins to the fantastic achievements of Jonny and Alistair Brownlee in winning triathlon gold at the London Olympics 2012, Commonwealth Games 2014 and the World Triathlon Championships in 2013.
In the UK, Rapha Condor JLT swear by them, getting them around the tough Tour Series criterium circuit series safely, a series which they stormed to victory.

It is the combination of the 22mm or 25mm dimpled Black Chili profile, and the reliable construction that keeps all of these athletes coming back for more.

The Black Chili compound increases grip whilst lowering rolling resistance without affecting wear - truly phenomenal!

One layer of the cut resistant Vectran under the tread instead of the previous two nylon breakers reduces weight and improves rolling resistance and rolling comfort. The German manufacturing process of the Competition hasn't changed. As previously, the world’s best pros only trust the handmade production of our seamstress team and our production staff in Korbach.

Note: For carbon rim use, please use Continental Carbon Rim Cement.

Black Chili

This revolutionary compound is based on the latest findings on polymer and other raw material research. For Black Chili Continental refine newly developed synthetic rubbers with natural rubber with the proven high-performance tread compound. They then use these rubbers with special nanometric carbon soot particles, which are optimized in shape and surface properties for best uses for the intended tyre. Black Chili Compound reaches an unprecedented of performance.

Vectran

Vectran has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight: Exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bicycle tyre as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran Breaker does not adversely affect the rolling resistance.
