Under the slogan the Mountain King rules the Alps, Continental is to launch a completely new series of MTB tyres at the upcoming Eurobike Show. This series contains 4 different profiles, sizes and qualities, from hi-end to entry level, including tyres with Conti’s last year presented Black Chili compound.

But that’s not all; Continental will also present completely revised and improved tyres in road race and in City & Trekking.

The Mountain King (see photo) is Continental’s jack-of-all trades. In widths 2.2 and 2.4 it is just right for CC, marathons, touring and All Mountain cycling. The Supersonic and ProTection versions manufactured in Germany also offer Conti’s new Black Chili compound. This compound contains a special mixture of new polymers and carbon fillers in order to make Continental race and MTB tyres the fastest and safest in competition. The Supersonic variant addresses the needs and desires of fast CC racers with an eye to weight-tuning.

For gruelling Alpine crossings, the Duraskin-reinforced ProTection version it is the safe choice. With its reinforced sidewall and the extra spicy, extra soft Black Chili compound, the Rubber Queen ensures that the rider stays on track and rake in curves like with no other tyre, but the Rubber Queen is also light-footed as it takes any trail.
