Continental Der Kaiser Black Chili DH MTB Tyre

Spiritual head and secular ruler. Our Dry to Intermediate DH tyre has been a regular at UCI World Cups over the past couple of seasons. If you are looking for an all round tyre to do some local races or an uplift day then look no further. The tread pattern is a perfect mix for speed and mud clearance. The BlackChilli compound helps you stick to the ground even when hitting off camber turns flat out. This is the tyre that took Gee Atherton to his first WC win on home soil and on to the podium at the Red Bull Rampage!

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazingly sticky and puncture resistant. I use this tyre for trials, so my review won't be helpful to everyone... but nevertheless the tyre is incredibly grippy compared to other brands sticky compounds. it sticks to everything i've aimed it at; pollished railings, smooth marble and pretty much everything you'll find on a trail. the sidewalls offer great puncture resistance; i managed to pinch flat once over 4 months of riding, i put this down to my riding style and low pressure more than the tyre being at fault though. wear rate is excellent too! 01 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Great tyre, originally just used it in the dry but couldn't be bothered to change it in the wet but it grips great so kept it on! definitely going to buy another when I need it 07 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like velcro on the mountain These tires have a very good grip on different surfaces. I went up on the mountain, wet conditions (and mind you, this is not a tire made primarily for wet conditions). Drive through mostly mountain, also some wooden structures, some mud and they just had grip like they were velcro! I fitted this just in the front to test and the rear kenda was skidding out all the time. So now I have to buy some more of this tire :-) 04 July 2012

Rated 4 out of 5 by Best DH rubber These tyres are simply great. Much better than maxxis HR's or minions. They are a bit expensive but they last alot longer then 42a maxxis tyres and offer more grip. Not tried 3C maxis yet though. Spend the money if you can they are well worth it. 03 October 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by the best tyres I had!!!!!!!!!! buy it!!! buy it!!!! 07 May 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by these tyres are just plain awesome. paired with a 2.4 rubber queen on the rear and i have got so much more than my minion/ardent set up, for australian dry and dusty conditions these things are just fantastic, event run well in the wet too. mega tough no punctures or flats yet even on dump run, which is a 1.4 km rock garden. 20 April 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Amazing Tyre but far away from 1000 grams Hi there, the tyre grips like hell and is really hard to puncture. The sidewalls are strong enough to handle hard rocks and the compound is similar to a 40a from Maxxis. But the claimed weight is 1280. I already had several and all of them were around the 1.3 Kilos. Get one you won't regret 23 June 2009

The Black Chilli compound is a stickier softer rubber similar to a 42a Maxxis model. The Black Chilli will certainly offer more grip in damp and loose conditions.
