Special Edition For The 2020 Tour de France
Conti's number one selling tire has been updated and it's all about making your ride faster, smoother, and more puncture resistant (20% better, they say).
Lazer Grip - The lazered micro profile structure expands over the tire’s shoulder and provides outstanding cornering.
Active Comfort - The revolutionary approach in cycling. Embedded in the tire construction the Active Comfort Technology absorbs vibrations and smoothens your ride. 330tpi, 3-ply construction of the clincher version increases the overall stiffness of the tyre and improves stability in high-speed corners, all while reducing rolling resistance.
BlackChili - With our unique tread compound, which is produced only in Germany, we have revolutionised the sport of cycling. With the legendary BlackChili Compound we have answered the eternal question of the best balance of grip and rolling resistance for cycling.
Regular test wins confirm the measureable and noticeable advantages for the cyclist, established in the laboratory and on the road. The latest polymers as well as specially developed carbon black particles and filler materials guarantee unique performance
Vectran - Twenty percent better puncture resistance than the 4000S. Vectran™ is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran™ is a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran™ is spun from the melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed further to a multi-strand thread. Spider silk like Vectran™ has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight: Exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bicycle tire 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.
