THE NEW ERA IN CYCLING. Ride faster, more comfortably, and with increased puncture protection. BlackChili Compound: 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). With our 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. Active Comfort Technology: the revolutionary approach in cycling. Embedded in the tire construction the Active Comfort Technology absorbs vibrations and smoothens your ride. Lazer Grip, to make you one with the road. The lazered micro profile structure expands over the tire’s shoulder and provides outstanding cornering. Vectran Breaker: The benchmark in puncture protection Vectran™ is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fiber from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran™ is a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran™ is spun from the melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed further to a multi-strand thread. A Vectran™ Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran™ Breaker does not adversely affect rolling resistance.
