The race tyre with efficient propulsion, phenomenal braking power and precise cornering. Its tread pattern is directly derived from the toughest World Cup tracks.
Black chilli compound:
Conti have revolutionised the cycling scene with the unique tread compound, which is only produced in Germany. With the legendary BlackChili Compound, they were able to provide a lasting answer to the eternal question of whether grip or rolling resistance is important.
Regular test wins prove the measurable and tangible benefits for the riders in the laboratory and on the road. The latest polymers and specially developed soot particles and fillers guarantee unique performance.
Successfully used in passenger car tires for years, the Apex stabilizes the tire in curves. A technology that is also useful for large-volume bicycle tyres. The Apex is a rubber tread, which is placed between the carcass plies on the base of the tyre. It stiffens the sidewalls of the tyre and minimises the torsion of the tyre under high lateral loads. In addition, the stiffened sidewalls reduce the risk of puncture damage and prevent the tyre from slipping off the rim. These characteristics predestine the apex for our downhill and freeride tyres: The operating pressure can be further reduced in favour of grip without having to accept a spongy cornering behaviour or an increased risk of puncture.
