Continental's collection of Trail King tires excel in wet rocky, root filled, and muddy conditions. Complete with Continental's Protection Apex technology, the 4 ply 240 TPI casing offers increased durability, puncture resistance, and hassle-free tubeless compatibility -- all with a minimal weight sacrifice.

APEX sidewall reinforcement (2.4 inch only) furthers pinch flat protection at low pressures. And finally, RTR tubeless technology means compatibility with UST and tubeless ready rims when paired with Continental Revo Sealant.

  • Folding bead
  • Tubeless ready.

Still my go-to tire

Ive tried quite a few different tires on my 5.5 Pivot and I always come back to these. I use it as a front tire. Tough. Reasonable weight. Long lasting. And great traction. Easy to mount too. Someday maybe Conti will make it in a 2.8

Love this tire would recommend

I am running a 27.5x2.4 in the rear and a 27.5x2.6 der Baron in the front this combo is crazy grippy and so far I have had no problems with the tires. They were super tight when mounting and took to tubeless with ease. They are also wearing great.
