Continental Race King Sport Tire - 29in $0.00
King of the race.
The 29in Continental Race King Sport Tire has the same low-profile pattern as its Black Chili counterpart. And like it, the Race King Sport tire rolls fast and is capable of handling just about any terrain or condition. Really, these tires only differ through the Race King Sport's forgoing the expensive rubber compound in order to keep its price more accessible.
Part of the secret of the Race King's success lies in its remarkable tread. The rolled shoulder profile and diamond-head arrow center tread pattern is primarily designed for superb power transfer, while also maintaining a low-profile that rolls fast. Continental also incorporates transitional knobs from the center to the shoulder of the tire. This way, when you make quick weight transfers, from cornering to straight-ahead power and back again, the tire remains stable and secure beneath you.
The shoulder knobs maintain a low-profile, much like the rest of the tread. However, along the outer-edge, the pattern is doubled with a ramped leading edge followed by a block tread. The ramps roll quickly, but the block bites into the dirt for better traction. This not only aids in the Race King's ability to shed mud like nobody's business, but it also delivers a heightened level of both durability and reliability on the nastiest, longest marathon rides.
The Continental Race King Sport 29in Tire is 2.2 inches wide, and it has an ideal inflation level of between 50 and 65 psi.
