About Continental Grand Prix GT Folding Clincher Tyre
The Grand Prix GT offers extra longevity at the highest level earning it the tyre endorsement GT (GrandTour). BlackChili Compound and the tried and tested Grand Prix profile offer outstanding grip in combination with the extra puncture protection of wider PolyX Breaker. It's the perfect balance between the grip of a fast rolling race tyre like the GP4000S and the durability of Grand Prix 4 Seasons. It's an ideal tyre for Endurance Races, Audax events or commuting through the road debris of city streets.
Wider PolyX Breaker protects against foreign objects under the tyre tread.
Long life durability - ideal for Audax events and multi-day races
Outstanding grip thanks to the BlackChili compound and a proven tread profile
Continuous, three-ply casing effectively strengthens the sidewalls without adding more weight.
Total 180 tpi for stronger sidewalls
Black Chili Compound
Handmade in Germany
Black Chili Compound - Continental engineers have been looking for the solution to one of the fundamental problems of tyre construction. They solved it by inventing Black Chili Compound.
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.
Continental refine newly developed synthetic rubbers with natural rubber with the proven high-performance tread compound and then combine these rubbers with special nanometric carbon soot particles, which are optimised in shape and surface properties for best uses for the intended tyre. The result is Black Chili Compound which produces an unprecedented of grip and performance
PolyX Breaker - brings PKW know-how to the bicycle tyre segment: Polyester has been used successfully for years in car tyres and been tried and tested many times. The extremely resistant polyester fibre is woven tightly crosswise. In this way, a very high fabric density is reached which not only makes the Breaker more resistant to foreign objects but is also especially resistant to punctures without any negative effect on rolling resistance.
