More air, better traction.

The 29in Trail King is a large volume tire that uses Continental's ProTection casing with Apex sidewalls to make it ideal for long-travel twenty niners. Available in both 2.2- and 2.4-inch widths, the Apex sidewall design uses a strip of additional material above the bead that helps stiffen the sidewall.

This increases tire stability and control in hard turns and off-camber terrain. The extra sidewall support also means that you can run slightly lower tire pressures without worrying about burping your tires or losing control. The Black Chili compound is a synthetic rubber with nano-sized particles to react to surface irregularities more effectively.

This not only improves grip, but these particles also form a tighter bond to improve compound strength, lengthening tread life and reducing the chances that lugs will rip and tear. Compared to Continental's earlier-generation tire compound, Black Chili tires provide 20% less rolling-resistance, 30% more grip, and an improved tread life of around 5%.

The tread pattern is aggressive and designed for loose and rocky scenarios. Staggered side knobs and siping provide excellent traction over a variety of surfaces. The Continental Trail King Tire comes in either 2.2 or 2.4in widths and with a black sidewall only.

Hard tail Champion!!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I ride a spec. rockhopper in the Utah area. Salt lake, St G, Moab, and Fruita Colorado. With an occasional trip up to the Tetons or Bend. I find this tire to be the absolute best that I've ridden. It's got lots of size, which means more cushion on the back side (ass). It's also very strong, the Pro-tection in the sides keeps them from bulging like the old tires used to do. The black chili grip is insane! This tire grabs onto everything and won't let go until you tell it to, roots, dirt, slickrock, whatever. And I thought it wouldn't roll great or give me the speed on the downhill, but I was wrong there. There's very little resistance in the 2.2.
SO, overall, great speed, comfort, grip, and not really a bad price because they last forever!!! Enjoy!

Do both tire sizes 29 X 2.2 and 29 2.4...

Do both tire sizes 29 X 2.2 and 29 2.4 have the Black Chili compound?

Hey Mr. Marvelous,

Both the 2.2 and 2.4 widths have the Black Chili Compound. It looks like we are awaiting a shipment of the 2.4 version of that tire, but placing and order will set up a backorder in our system to send that out as soon as it is available. If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to give us a call at (888) 276-7130.

Hi, are this tires tubeless?

Yes, these tires are tubeless compatible meaning that you would want to use a sealant with them for a tubeless setup.
