Choose alter road, choose Terra
The perfect adventure companion. Be it multiday endurance tours, or the shortcut on your way home. The new gravel Terra Speed series by Continental gets you there. Made to get you over the rough and smooth.
- Compound: BlackChili.
- Foldable aramid bead core.
- Version: Tubeless Ready.
Better than ever before, the new Continental ProTection casing. The extra all-round puncture protection layer renders the casings especially durable and insensitive to damage or penetration from foreign elements. Treads and sidewalls are equally protected, and are 25% lighter and offer 30% more puncture protection than their predecessors protected by DuraSkin®. Rolling resistance and absorption has also significantly improved. The new Made in Germany technology allows it to withstand even the hardest trails across the world. What’s more: they’re universally usable, are inspired by BlackChili Compound and have an easy, fast, safe designed without compromise for use in mountain bike racing: The new Revolution Tubeless Ready Bead improves the application of Tubeless Ready tyres.
In the research and development laboratories for Continental bicycle tyres in Korbach, Germany, the staff and engineers have been looking for the solution to one of the fundamental problems of tyre construction: the running properties of the rubber compound of a tyre are largely determined by three interacting factors: static friction (grip), rolling resistance and mileage. The dilemma is that you improve one of these factors, and in turn, worsen at least one other factor. A tyre with maximum grip wears out faster and rolls slower. If one makes the tyre faster or more durable, then this in turn reduces grip. With the then current highest standard of compound technology, the Activated Silica Compound having already reached a very high standard of compromise, our developers wanted to take compounding to an even higher level. This lead them to venture into new territory, exploring new ways so that in 2005 they made a breakthrough in mixing technology, the first steps to what is now known as Black Chili. This revolutionary compound is based on the latest findings on polymer and other raw material research.
Tubeless Ready tyres can be used both with and without an inner tube. To use it without a tube the tyre is sealed with a special sealant. The revolutionary Tubeless Ready bead allows easier and less complicated assembly of the tyre. All mountain bike tyres from Continental are Tubeless Ready in the ProTection and Performance formats.
