Product Details

The Continental Argotal Downhill is a folding tyre and is the specialist for trail rides on loose surfaces. The SuperSoft compound provides the strongest grip in the Gravity segment. The six-layer 110 TPI carcass offers excellent puncture protection and maximum stability thanks to Tubeless Ready technology and Apex stiffening.


Features 

  • Indented, linearly arranged shoulder lugs with support structure for high stability, even when aggressively driving tight, fast turns
  • High mechanical grip especially on loose surfaces
  • Open tread design offers perfect interaction on loose surfaces, as well as good self-cleaning in damp and wet conditions
  • Pronounced center lugs are provided with steep bevels to achieve mechanical grip through the interaction between tread and surface
  • SuperSoft is the softest compound with the highest grip in the Continental MTB Gravity range, ideal for riders who rely 100% on grip, traction and control
  • Exceptional tire wall design with a unique look
  • Label design with clear and intuitive symbolism
  • Cross woven nettle tape protects the tire and rim area
  • Foldable aramid core
  • The most robust carcass in the Gravity line-up
  • Specialist for loose substrate
  • Suitable for tubeless rebuild with optimized foot area for a reliable seal

Technologies

Downhill carcass
6 layers of carcass material under the tread provide high resistance and puncture protection. Of which 4 layers of carcass material for suppleness and adaptability.

Apex
Used successfully for years in passenger car tires, the Apex stabilizes the tire in curves. A technology that also makes sense for large-volume bicycle tires. The Apex is a rubber tread that is placed between the carcass plies at the base of the tire. It stiffens the tire's sidewalls, minimizing the tire's torsion under high lateral loads. In addition, the stiffened sidewalls reduce the risk of puncture damage and prevent the tire from slipping off the rim. These features predestine the Apex for our downhill and freeride tires: The operating pressure can be further reduced in favor of the grip, without having to accept a spongy cornering behavior or an increased risk of puncture.

BlackChili Compound
The rolling properties of the rubber compound of a tire are primarily determined by three interacting factors – stiction [grip], rolling resistance and mileage [longevity] . The dilemma: If you improve any of these factors it can have a detrimental effect on at least one of the others. A tire with maximum grip wears quicker and rolls more slowly. If you then make a tire roll faster and more durable, grip, in turn, is reduced. With our Black Chili compound, a tread compound which is always based on the latest knowledge of polymers and raw material research, we have supplied the cycling industry with an enduring solution. Depending on the application of a tire, we adjust the compound formulation for the specific discipline – for road or mountain biking, time trialling or downhill racing. How does that work? For Black Chili we refine special synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber to high-performance tread mixtures. To these mixtures we then add soot particles, which in turn are optimised in shape and surface properties.

Tubeless
Continental's carcass construction is particularly resistant and insensitive to damage and the penetration of foreign bodies. The result: Your tires are versatile, have a low weight and an attractive design. In addition, the tires with this technology can also be used tubeless or in combination with an inner tube.

ECO
Tires with Continental ECO technology benefit from over 100 years of experience in the development of moped and motorcycle tires. Optimized and recommended for e-bikes up to 25 km/h, they guarantee low rolling resistance and good puncture protection thanks to a particularly high-quality construction. Durability has been tested specifically for e-bikes to counteract premature wear due to the additional drive force.
