Olympic – The tubular for Olympic athletes.
Continental’s development target for this tire can be described easily: Faster! Lighter! Better! The rolling resistance is further reduced without compromise; the last unnecessary gram of the tire has been cut. This tire is the pinnacle of Continental’s tubular range, manufactured and hand-sewn using carefully selected components at the German factory in Korbach. This makes Olympic II the specialist in all track cycling disciplines.
This unique tread rubber mixture which is only produced in the Continental German factory has revolutionized bicycle tires. The resultant compound showed a new relationship between grip and rolling resistance. This “Elevated level”, as it was previously known, was given the name “BlackChili”. The latest polymers, nanoscale soot particles, and optimized fillers all guarantee a unique performance, from downhill MTB tires to the time trial tires of the ProTour, they are second to none in their respective areas. BlackChili Compound improves rolling resistance by 26% and provides 30% more grip than activated silica compounds. Premium tires with BlackChili Compound also impress with higher mileage and unlike many multi-compounds, provide a constant ride from the first to the last kilometer.
