The X-King ProTection 27.5 Inch is a new addition to Continental's impressive MTB line up, boasting a versatile hybrid tread pattern, proven Black Chili rubber compound, and extremely durable yet race-ready construction. The ProTection version offers increased durability and RTR tubeless ready technology with minimal weight sacrifice.
The newly developed tread pattern can do just about anything, blending features from the updated Mountain and Race King models for a tire that looks and acts aggressive, but rolls quickly. Rounded symmetrical knobs provide ample traction when braking and climbing, while protruding shoulder lugs grip like super glue on the corners without slowing you down on the straights.
The advanced Black Chili rubber compound performs exceptionally well, increasing grip and durability while lowering rolling resistance. The beefed up Protection casing features 4 fabric plies and a total of 240 TPI for extra durability. Finally, RTR tubeless technology means compatibility with UST and tubeless ready rims when paired with Continental Revo Sealant.
The X-King 29 Inch Protection MTB Tire is available in 27.5 x 2.2 Inch (55-584 ISO) and 27.5 x 2.4 Inch (60-584 ISO) sizes. Recommended pressure: 50 PSI. Max. pressure: 65 PSI. Folding bead. Handmade in Germany. Claimed weight: 620/690 grams.
