Description

Crush your next race.

Cyclocross clinchers need to be durable; train on them on the road and off during the week, go in the pits on race day. The Continental Speed King Cyclocross Tire fits our definition of what a cyclocross clincher should be. Tough enough to last, a tread that offers up great traction, a casing that won't cut easily, and enough air volume to float over rough ground at low pressures.

The casing is made of three stout 28tpi layers that make up the overall 84tpi final construction. The tread is a neutral cyclocross design that can handle everything. Run it hard on the road and the center knobs won't be distractingly squishy. Drop the pressure for dirt and grass riding and the knobs dig in and then self-clean on their way out. The 35mm width gives plenty of volume for running low pressure when the ground is rough.

The Continental Speed King Cyclocross Tire has an Aramid bead and is foldable. Maximum pressure is 85psi. They say recommended pressure is 58psi, but we know we're going lower in rough conditions. It has a black tread and sidewalls. 700c only. Claimed weight is 450g.

Fast on Dry, Shed the Mud: All Rounder

This tire was the tire of choice all fall last year when I rode clinchers. They were really fast in the dry duffy conditions we get out west, yet they cleared mud rapidly when hitting the wet conditions. I rode these at low pressures all fall (26psi) and never had any issues with bottoming out on rims or pinch flatting. Run this with the No Tubes tubeless kit and shed the tubes altogether. I will be running this tire again this year. Ride On.

Can anyone commnet on the life expectency...

Can anyone commnet on the life expectency of this tire when used on the road alot. I do about 80% road/ 20 % off CX training. I have a set of Hutchinson wire beads on the bike for the late 12 years that I bought for $15 a piece at th 98 MTB Worlds but Hutch does seem to make that tire anymore.

Responded on

The speed kings use a fairly soft rubber for mud and off road traction at the cost of longevity. I haven't used my all that much on the road maybe a couple hundred miles and the center section is fairly worn. Maybe 25-40%. Fast enough that I swapped out a pair of Small Block Eights for on-road and gravel conditions.

Great all-round tire

This tire came stock on my kona jake the snake. it rides very nicely as a commuter tire, and i always feel safe riding in the rain. it's got a nice balance between grip and low rolling resistance for light trail riding.
