Chili power.

Fly down the trail and carve technical corners like a pro with the Continental X-King 27.5in Tire. With high-TPI ProTection casing and Black Chili Rubber, this tire is built to tear down the course to the finish line.

Lowered and offset middle knobs give consistent speed on straight-line stretches while still providing tons of grip when setting up for a corner and sprinting out of the curve. Strategically placed outer knobs provide additional grip in twisty situations, and the Black Chili Rubber ups the durability ante and removes any worries of tearing off knobs on a gnarly mid-ride switchback.

  • High-TPI ProTection casing
  • Black Chili Rubber
  • Folding bead
  • Available in 27.5in x 2.4in

Poor braking control and a puncture

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I ran this tubeless on the rear Stan's wheel of my Mojo HDR I purchased at Competitive Cyclist. This tire likes to lock up and break away. I could get used to drifting corners, but locking up when you really need to stop quickly is not good.

I punctured this tire beyond use in the knobby area, after less than 10 rides or 3 months of use. That could have been driver error, but I did not have a lot of confidence in this tire to begin with.

Great tread design, wears a little quick

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really love the way this tire rides. I use the 2.4 as a rear tire, and run the pressure a little low for better traction. It rolls hella fast but still hooks up when I need it to.
But I do feel like it is wearing a little too quick, and I've got some thin spots on the sidewalls that are a bit concerning. I'll probably get another one when it's dead, and if the next one wears just as quick, I'll probably try something new

Nice looking tire, weak sidewall

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is a nice German made Black Chili tire at a great price from Competitive. Unfortunately the sidewalk failed on the second ride with under 18 miles on the tire. Ironically it failed next to the big Protection label emblazoned on the side of the tire. We were on a light gravel fire road with no obvious cause for the sidewall failure. I have several bikes and have never had such a failure with Schwalbe, MAXXIS or any other tire. Too early to know how the tire holds up or performs. It's still like new otherwise.
