Now considered a legendary tyre, the Race King heralded the advent of the current Continental MTB tire range. Irina Kalentieva won two World Championships on Race King tyres as well as countless other wins. When it’s dry, the Race King is faster, cleaner and safer. Rolling resistance is almost on a par with race bike tyres. The RS and ProTection models are developed and produced in Korbach, Germany with best materials such as BlackChili Compound and they guarantee significantly better rolling resistance and puncture protection respectively.
Pure Grip Compound: Based on activated silica compounds, this technology was originally intended as an performance level compound, but after intensive development at Conti's Korbach Research and Development Department Facility, an advanced new compound with outstanding grip and cross-country properties was developed.
This new rubber mix, given the self explanatory name "Pure Grip", is ranked just behind our BlackChili compound and is being used in our performance products both in the road and mountain bike sectors. Whilst providing great grip, it is also long lasting and highly durable – both characteristics of Continental tires, which are exclusively manufactured in the factory in Hefei (Asia).
Continental has over 100 years experience manufacturing tyres for the bicycle and automotive industries. Continental conducts its technological development and production in Germany, manufacturing products for everyday riders through to professional racers. Continental tyres have been ridden to Olympic gold in track, cross country, and triathlon events; as well as Tour de France victory by Cadel Evans; and supplies UCI Pro Tour teams suchs as BMC, Lotto Belisol and Orica GreenEdge.
