Continental GP Force Comp Tubular Tyre Specification
- . This tubular tyre has been designed to pair (as the rear tyre) with Continental’s Attack Comp tubular tyre. With its wide 24mm contact area and semi-slick treat pattern, the GP Force is a powerhouse with remarkable grip and low rolling resistance. Plus, with a higher service mileage and impressive comfort thanks to its wide casing, this tyre is a perfect match for the stiffer racing bikes of today Features: TPI: 180 PSI rating: 115-170 Perfect partner is the Attack Comp tubular tyre (front) ISO: 24-622 (700 x 24c) Weight:¬†260gTechnologies: BlackChili Compound: Continental refines newly developed synthetic rubbers with natural rubber with the proven high-performance tread compound. The GP4000S II uses these rubbers with special nanometric carbon soot particles, which are optimised in shape and surface properties for best uses for the intended tyre. Tyres with BlackChili Compound reach an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to the previous best Activated Silica Compound, BlackChili tyres have 26% less rolling resistance, a 30% higher friction value (grip) and a 5% increase in mileage. Vectran‚Ñ¢ Breaker:¬†Vectran is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran is a liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) and is spun from the melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed further to a multi-strand thread. Vectran has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight: Exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bicycle tyre as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran Breaker does not adversely affect the rolling resistance. TyrePositioning System (TPS): The narrower front tyre (23mm) provides reduced wind resistance and better handling. An adhesion-optimised tread mixture supplies the necessary grip especially for wet cornering. The wider rear tyre (25mm) offers better traction thanks to a larger contact area and at the same time more comfort. Thanks to the fast rolling, optimised tread mixture and larger contact area on the rear tyre, wear is reduced. The result is a pioneering front and rear tyre system for road racing ‚Äì to be found in Conti‚Äôs GP Attack and Force tyres/tubs Buy Continental Wheels & Tyres from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World‚Äôs Largest Online Bike Store.
