    Tires that will take you to the podium.

    Continental’s Race King 29-inch Tire is built tough for cross-country rippers who demand power and excellent, all-terrain traction. Continental uses its proprietary Black Chili compound for the Race King, which not only improves grip, but also makes the tire stronger and lighter. Compared to Continental's earlier-generation tire compound, Black Chili tires provide around 20% less rolling-resistance and 30% more grip, all while managing to improve tread life by 5%. The Race King’s low-profile tread pattern delivers excellent power transfer and superb handling. To accomplish this, Continental uses a rolled shoulder profile, transitional knobs, and a diamond-head arrow center tread pattern. Along the outer edge, the pattern uses a ramped leading edge and a block tread. The blocks enhance traction while the ramps ensure a quick rolling tire. The Race King is also built with Continental’s ProTection technology, which provides wall-to-wall protection against punctures.

    Great all around XC tires

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is one of the best all around XC tires out there. I ran mine tubeless at 25 psi for training and as low as 21 for races. The ProTection technology makes for a super solid tubeless set up, and these tires have excellent flat protection especially when compared to some ultra-thin XC tires. It's a fast-rolling tread that also holds amazing grip on rocks and in corners. I have yet to run them in really wet or muddy conditions. An ideal XC quiver for one season would be 2-3 sets of these and a pair of X-Kings for the mud.
