Continental Grand Prix Supersonic
Continental's Grand Prix Supersonic delivers searing speed to help you drop friends and foes alike. This race-ready tire offers exceptionally low rolling resistance, blistering acceleration and effortless climbing. It combines a super-fine polyamide casing with Continental's Black Chili rubber compound tread for superior grip in corners, lower rolling resistance and increased wear. The Supersonic has light folding Kevlar beads, too.
Continental's Black Chili rubber compound significantly improves wear, traction and rolling resistance through the use of carbon nanotechnology, microscopic carbon particles in the rubber. These mold better to the ground and have more points of contact, which gives the tire more grip. And, because the compound matrix is formed of more particles, which are connected more tightly with each other, the tire lasts longer. Plus, the smaller particles are more flexible, too, which improves rolling resistance.
