BlackChili: The BlackChili Compound used in Continental tyres, reach an unprecedented level of performance. BlackChili tyres have 26% less rolling resistance compared to that of the previous best Activated Silica Compounds. BlackChili tyres also deliver a staggering 30 % more traction as well as a 5 % increase in mileage. BlackChili technology never stands still as it is continuously developed and tailored to the individual applications of new Continental tyres as they continue to be produced out of the Korbach factory in northern Hesse, Germany. Once you get a set of these tyres out on the road, speed and grip advantages are imediately noticeable. The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tyres with BlackChili Compound can only be produced exclusively in Continentals German Korbach factory.
Vectran™ Breaker: Vectran™ is spun from a Vectra liquid crystal polymer, which results in a thread that is thermoplastic in nature with multifilaments. This semicrystalline material compound is harder than aramid, has five times higher tensile strength than steel and in addition, is also lighter than comparable nylon thread. Vectran™ maintains these attributes even in the most adverse and demanding weather conditions.
