Solid performance for the price

Fast rolling, good tread pattern. Had one go loppy on me in the rear but that was probably my fault from hitting on something. Still rolling on mine from over a year ago and I ride to work almost daily. Conti's are great!

Love these on my gravel bike

With my road riding events done for the year I wanted wider tires to better handle dirt and gravel roads.

These fit on my Giant Revolt Advanced with room for fenders.

That provides great grip and confidence when the packed dirt turns to large loose gravel or light mud.

It makes the bike fun on some of the easier and smoother MTB trails in our area.

I am not sure how much of a speed penalty I am paying on pavement, but they feel pretty good on pavement also.

This time of year, I am not looking for speed. I am looking to enjoy the weather and have some outdoor adventures.

Great trail tires

I have had 2 sets of these tires now. The first set (2.25) performed wonderfully on 650 Km of the Divide Trail - Banff to Whitefish section. These new 2.0 width are perfect for our gravel roads and trails. Bike Tires Direct have been wonderful- even when I order the wrong size. My bad. I like the tread design and the puncture resistance aspect.

Good light weight tire for gravelly, hardpack stuff. On a rigid MTB.

Nice light and fast tire for a rigid MTB. On sale. Best tire based on $$$/weight ratio.

Love these tires

Replaced the Maxxis 2.2" tires that came on my Santa Cruz Chameleon with these (2.0") Contis, it transformed the bike. I mostly ride xc. These tires (with tubes) weigh less than the Maxxis tubeless setup the bike came with. They roll unbelievably better at the same inflation. (I also run these tires in a 26x2.2 on my '97 Santa Cruz Heckler.) These are ideal Summer tires for around here. Love them.

Great tires for gravel riding.

I use the Race Kings on a Trek Superfly for mostly gravel riding. The tires are great for gravel work - not sure how they would hold up on a cross country MTB trail. I'm on my second set & no problems with the tires at all - no flats & plenty of miles ridden before they show any appreciable wear.

Great set of fast tires

As mountain bike tires go these are some of the fastest I've used.I am using them with tubes. These should be terrific for anyone doing flat cross country or not super technical courses. I recently did a fairly hilly duathlon that was mostly sand pinestraw and they were great. Anything much more technical I would choose a wider tire.

Excellent XC or Gravel Tire

Excellent XC tire and gravel use. Holds corners well in loose conditions, fast rolling, and stable on every surface I've ridden.

WinterTrail tires for Hybrid

Swapped these onto a Trek DS for snow and trail riding. Great grip aired down a few PSI. Exceeds bike manufacturer width allowed but works perfectly. Great in the snow and mud.

replaced one that stretched on one sidewall, hopefully no repeat

Sidewall on my last one stretched on a small drop, but it's a good price and nice profile

Great tires for my easy riding style

I ride some basic local single track trails & dirt access roads. These tires are exactly what I needed to replace the road friendly tires on my dual sport. I now have adequate traction to climb hills without spinning the tires. If I don't have adequate traction, I probably need to dismount the bike anyway.

Continental Race King tire

3rd set of these tires and they are still unbeatable in hard pack to sand to light mud conditions. They always feel solid underneath the bike and have plenty of traction. Rolling on pavement or hard pack is exceptional. Very quiet compared to normal MTB knobs.

Fast Rolling Tire

Chose these tires for several extended bikepacking trips on varied surfaces. They have met all expectations, rolling smooth and quiet on paved roads, holding traction on gravel turns and providing plenty of traction on single track. Some wear after about 1000 miles, but still lots of life.
