The all arounder versatile competition and trail tire, sure footed in turns and comfortable. Good grip and available with various technologies. Smoothly rolling tire that adapts to any terrain with its special tread.
Black Chili: It’s all about how you mix it With our unique tread compound, which is produced only in Germany, we have revolutionized the sport of cycling. With the legendary Black Chili Compound we have answered the eternal question of the best balance of grip and rolling resistance for cycling. Regular test wins confirm the measurable 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.
Black Chili Compound: It’s all about how you mix it The crucial balance. The rolling properties of the rubber compound of a tire are primarily determined by three interacting factors: stiction [grip], rolling resistance and mileage [longevity]. The dilemma: If you improve any one of these factors, it can have a detrimental effect on at least one of the others. A tire with maximum grip wears quicker and rolls more slowly. If you then make a tire roll faster and more durable, grip, in turn, is reduced. With our Black Chili Compound, a tread compound that is always based on the latest knowledge of polymers and raw material research, we have supplied the cycling industry with an enduring solution. Depending on the application of a tire, we adjust the compound formulation for the specific discipline – for road or mountain biking, time trialing or downhill racing. How does that work? For Black Chili, we refine special synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber to high-performance tread mixtures. To these mixtures we then add soot particles, which in turn are optimized in shape and surface properties. The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tires with Black Chili Compound are produced exclusively in our plant in Korbach, Germany.
ProTection: The perfect combination of smooth running, grip, and puncture protection. The ProTection technology gives our tires their perfect mix of fast rolling, grip and puncture protection. Four plies under the tread and three in the sidewalls make this possible. The whole tire attains greater resilience and becomes less vulnerable to damage. Benefits: Adheres well to the terrain, even on the toughest trails Very good damping characteristics Black Chili Compound ensures smooth rolling and the required grip Tubeless Ready: The revolutionary Tubeless Ready base enables the tire to be mounted easily. Tubeless Ready: Our carcass-construction is robust and impervious against damage and penetration from foreign objects. The result: versatile, low weight and an attractive design. In addition, tires made using this technology can also be set up tubeless or used with an inner tube.
