Great tire for the price

I replaced my worn out Bontrager tires that came on my Trek with these Continentals and immediately noticed a big improvement with better handling & less rolling resistance. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase these again.

Awesome tire...

Very fast and grippy tire in the streets. Not the best in loose pack gravel or rocks, but that was expected.

Light, Fast, 2.2 gives great control

Run the protection 2.2's with Stan's at low psi for a fast, light, super control ride. Great for a rigid setup where you depend on the tires to take out some of the sting.

Overall good tire. Difficult to air up.

Very difficult to air up. I had to install a tube to lock the beads in place, pop one bead off to remove the tube, and then use shop air to reinflate tubeless. Even then it was difficult. As a final step I pressed the side of the wheel tire with bead locked in place into the side of a Class 8 truck tire (just happened to have one in the garage) as a means to close the gap between the unseated bead and rim bed.

Air retention is good, not great. The side walls seem to be holding up well. The ride is very good (stable, no burping) at 22 psi front and 27 psi rear. It probably goes without saying that these tires are not good for railing corners other than hard pack, but they do roll fast, which is the primary design intent.

My tubeless experience is limited and thus my experience with different tubeless ready tires is also limited. My primary point of reference is Geax' Saguaro with TNT casing which I ran all of last season (1800 miles-ish). They are relatively indestructible, air up easily, and hold air extremely well. I checked the pressure only every two to three weeks. The problem is the weight, which is a full 220 grams heavier (each) than this RK. Forget about Geax' published weight.

I will try Schwalbe's Racing Ralph Rocket Ron with standard TL casing next. Im hopeful the sidewalls will be strong enough for the riding I do and the weight is 100 grams lighter than the RKs.
