The cycle racing tyres supplied by Continental to the top teams competing in the Tour de France are the exact same Continental tyres that are available at your local dealer. BlackChili technology is used exclusively in all team issue products where carbon black particles incorporated into the compound ensure a real advantage in performance.
They push the boundaries of the compromise between rolling resistance, wear rate and grip. The use of liquid crystal fibre Vectran underneath the tread means the racing tyres are not only more puncture-resistant, but also weigh less and offer further reduced rolling resistance. This year, riders like Rob Hayles, Mark Cavendish, Cadel Evans, Alejandro Valverde and Tom Boonen are relying on the hand-made tyres from Continental.
