This is the Continental Der Kaiser 26" Steel Bead Down Hill Tire, in Black Chili compound. This tire is the crown jewel of Downhill racing tires. In fact, this is the tire that Gee Atherton used to earn his first World Cup WC win, and took him to a podium finish at Red Bull Rampage!
The Der Kaiser features burly tread that works well in conditions ranging from hardpack to mud, but really comes to life in slightly loose conditions. Black Chili compound delivers a grippy feel, optimal tracking, and incredible braking in the worst conditions, while the reinforced casing and Apex sidewall construction gives this tire protection against high impacts and puncture inducing terrain.
- BlackChili Compound: Compared to the previous Activated Silica Compound, BlackChili tires have 26% less rolling resistance, a 30% higher friction value (grip) and a 5% increase in mileage. Tires with BlackChili Compound deliver unprecedented performance.
