Roll like a king.

The Topeak Ergon pro team collaborated with Continental in the creation of the X-King 29in Tire, and as a result, have ridden them to success after success. Fast but grippy, the X-King rolls smoothly and quietly despite its pronounced knobs, making it the ultimate all-around tire for anything from cross-country riding and racing to Alp'cross.

The Continental engineers in Germany refined its synthetic rubbers with nano-sized particles to create a compound that reacts to surface objects more quickly, thoroughly improving grip. These particles also form a tighter bond to improve compound strength, lengthening tread life and reducing the chances that lugs will rip and tear.

Here's what others have to say...

Which version of the tire is this? Sport? Performance? RaceSport? Protection? Is it a tubeless version? Conti makes this tire in a myriad of styles, we need to know which one. No wonder it isn't selling. I would like to buy one, but I don't know what I am buying.

These are the Sport 2.2 and yes they can be run tubeless with sealant such as Stan's.

Gavin, I just purchased these and when I tried to mount them sealant came out of the side walls. I thought you said these could be run tubeless?

Responded on

This doesnt have an additional model name associated with it. It is Conti code 0100530

Responded on

Sealant comes through the sidewalls when these are first mounted. It takes some patience to hold the wheel horizontally and keep redistributing the sealant to fill all the microholes in the sidewall. But it works. I am running these on Stans ZTR Crest rims and on Mavic Crossmax SLR rims.

Is the clincher type of tire the same as the tubeless UST type?

Responded on

I ordered these and they are clincher, as advertised

Kernville California. Trail is rideable year round. Perfect single track for 17 miles, or double that for an out and back. Also connects to the Keyesville classic course.(race is in march) the average temperature has been 65 degrees and sunny the last few weeks.

These are a good tred desighn tire that hook up in a wide range of terrain. They seem to be wearing well and have not given me a flat yet. The side walls have a lot of protection and that is why these tires are very stiff and need to be ran at lower pressures. The Swhalbes are definitely more compliant and handle better. But then again they have less protection.....nothing is perfect.....

Great tread design

I use this as a front tire and a mountain king 2 for the back. Continentals rubber compound wears evenly and grips well.

Unanswered Question

The option you have of the Protection...

The option you have of the Protection version of this tire is actually an image of the Mountain King II. Don't want any riders to be confused. The folding option is the actual tread pattern for this tire.
