Freeride performance, XC weight…it's good to be King.

The hotly anticipated Continental Mountain King Tires provide big volume and big grip for fast, dry terrain, and a Supersonic version that does it all with insanely low weight. Continental made the Mountain King for the arid Rocky Mountain region, where huge center knobs play a less essential role than huge air volume and cornering prowess. The Mountain King comes in a Protection version with Conti's famous Duraskin, a UST version for the lucky Tubeless riders, and a lightweight Supersonic version that tips the scales at an astonishing 550 grams in 2.4 diameter. There's also a 2.2 for the skinny-tire East Coast riders out there. Word to the wise: if going huge and/or maching rock gardens is your deal, steer towards the heavier versions of these tires.

Continental Tire Press Launch

A vid from the Conti Tire press launch. You may have to FF though a couple parts, but it did make me want to ride my bike.

So far so good

I have put about 40 miles on these tires in soggy Northeast weather conditions. Lots of rocks and roots on the trails. I got the tires with sidewall procection in 2.2 size and I am running them tubeless. Bike is S-Works Enduro.

I'm running about 30/32 psi front/rear. Grip is great on hills. Riding at speed over rocks and root were no issue and I felt very comfortable (wet and all). Grip in cornors was also very good.

So far, I would recommend them.

Is this mountain king 2.4 tire tubeless???...

Is this mountain king 2.4 tire tubeless??? It doesnt say.

Responded on

This is NOT the tubeless version. The tubeless versions from Conti are usually noted with a "UST" and often represented separately with the notation in the title of the tire. A quick search shows the tire you're asking about is not currently in stock. FYI - The Mountain King 2 is out and may be worth checking out.

is the version on sale here tubeless?

is the version on sale here tubeless?

Responded on

I would say no. The tell-tale "UST" is nowhere to be found on this page or drop-down-menu. Maybe the UST version is just out of stock.

sick, fat tires

love these...there big..and that's a good thing...for riding xc in many conditions...I love this tire..I do have the 2.4 wish they made a 2.3 but 2.4 is better than skinny 2.2.

Hi,Do these tires have any kind of warranty?...

Hi,Do these tires have any kind of warranty? I just ordered this tire about a week ago and took them out on about 3 rides. Today the tire sprung a leak. The rubber actually started to rip around a lug. I was hoping the tire would last a little bit longer, is this covered under warranty.

Responded on

Uh oh! I ride the Mountain King on my 29er and absolutely love it, I'm sorry that you've had these kinds of problems.You have a couple of options:1) Personally contact Highway2, the US distributor for Conti. They're the ones that deal with warranty and repairs.http://www.highwaytwo.com/2) Go into your local bike shop and ask if they can help you work with Highway2. Most of the guys I've worked with at H2 are pretty darned helpful, but if they give you any grief a dealer most certainly will be able to help you out.Good luck!

Road these all weekend in Moab

Great tires! I road these on Porcupine & Amasaback last weekend. Great tread pattern for all conditions. If you are a slick rock purist, these may not be your jam, but I found that they performed well on my Yeti 575. These floated me through the sandy places & river transition areas.
