Description

Though the Race King 29" MTB Tire is designed for speed above all else, Continental still manages to deliver reliable grip over a wide range of conditions. This ProTection model also features the proven Black Chili rubber compound, plus an extremely durable, yet race-ready construction. Featuring a variable 3x180 TPI casing and a 50x40tpi ProTection weave, the Race King provides lightweight, supple protection from punctures and slashes

The tread structure is built on the amazing Black Chili rubber, with low-profile knobs for an effortless roll on hardpack. The slightly wider spacing offers just enough room to effectively shed mud and hook up in looser conditions.

  • Advanced Black Chili rubber compound with dense particles for speed, grip and durability
  • Tough ProTection casing with 3 fabric piles of 180tpi and a 50x40tpi ProTection weave
  • Extra fabric ply ensures puncture resistance and sidewall reinforcement over the Race Sport model
  • Folding bead
  • Tubeless ready.
  • 29 x 2.2 Inch (55-622 ISO)
  • 605 grams
  • Recommended pressure: 50-58 PSI.

Light and Fast

These tires do what they were designed to do. They are light and fast. Grip is more than sufficient despite the small size of the knobs. They installed easy and hold air without any sealant seepage. In addition to that they are less expensive than the other brand of tires i also use. This has become my go to race tire.

Love it

I'm using these tires on my ibis DB nine mostly for gravel riding. They're fantastic they're super light they hold air well I've had no problems with punctures and for a small tire with small knobs they've got a lot of grip even in the loose stuff.

go fast tires for the MTB

Sooo the Race King is fast, like you can feel its faster than Maxxis stock tires on 2021 Giant Anthem - period. BUT they don't have the tread for slop or loose stuff - you kind fly through it. If you need to change direction or grip hard - best to surf the slide. still fast is fast and I would take the speed over control or short track racing.

One of the best XC tire on the market

I use these tires on my bikepacking rig. They roll fast on hard pack and got a good grip when the terrain demands it. They are also very light at only 580gr while the Vittoria Mezcal 2.35 on my MTB weighs 730 gr, that 150gr difference is significant when weight counts.

Great tires

I used these tires years ago and started using others - but came to realize these are better than other types of tires I've used - so I went back

Lightweight and low rolling resistance, as advertised. As

Rides well on gravel but does not perform well on wet pavement or loose rock.

Fast, but requires focus.

The fastest rolling MTB tire I have tried. Even faster rolling that a Maxxis Aspen or RR. However, it takes some skill to get it to hook-up. On loose, it's the sketchiest tire I've ridden. If you are ridding anything technical, this tire requires considerable focus.

My new go to tire - fast tire, great traction.

Used all summer last year in MI - even handles "light" mud no problems. Super chunky rocks, slop?
