CHOOSE ALTER ROAD, CHOOSE TERRA For your way off-road. For more comfort. For the adventure. Be it the long tour, or the shortcut on your way home. The Terra gravel series by Continental gets you there. Made to get you over rough and smooth. BlackChili 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 the BlackChili 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 trialling or downhill racing. How does that work? For BlackChili, 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 BlackChili 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 BlackChili Compound ensures smooth rolling and the required grip Tubeless Ready: The revolutionary Tubeless Ready base enables the tire to be mounted easily. ShieldWall System: Tubeless ready and puncture protection for riders on a budget The ShieldWall system combines the optimum combination of high puncture protection and low rolling resistance with low weight. This is made possible by an additional, all-round puncture protection layer that consists of a finely woven cross fabric. This gives the tire a high resistance to punctures and damage. Despite its additional ply, the tire has a very good damping property and a high degree of flexibility to adapt perfectly to the ground. The revolutionary tubeless ready bead allows easy and uncomplicated mounting of the tire. For best results in sealing and in use, we recommend the use of Continental RevoSealant sealant. 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. We recommend the usage of our Revo-Sealant. E25: Suitable for E-Bikes For our E-bike tire we fall back on over 100 years’ experience with moped and motorcycle tires. All of our city/trekking tires are rated to a standard speed of at least 25 km/h (15.5 MPH). Those tires marked e50 are also certified for S-Pedelecs. With their high quality structure, puncture protection is high and the rolling resistance is low offering protection from premature wear brought about by the additional driving force.
