Pedal to the metal.

Providing reduced rolling resistance with its minimal tread pattern and Black Chili compound, the Continental Race King 26in Tire is the go-to choice of dedicated cross-country racers, as well as trail riders desiring an exceedingly fast tire (often run on the rear). The 2.2-inch width strikes just the right balance between bump-smoothing support and fast-rolling speed, allowing you to really lay the power down without it feeling too wimpy to roll over rocks and roots standing in your way.

This particular version is equipped with Continental's black Chili compound, which offers the benefits of low rolling resistance and increased grip—all without wearing out prematurely and requiring you to buy a new tire after only a month or two of hard riding. Combined with Continental's Protection layer, this particular Race King 26in Tire gives you all the benefits of speed and control while racing and training, plus the added peace of mind against punctures and slits while mobbing across pointy rocks and bumpy roots. It's designed to be run in tubeless form, so you can improve the ride quality and grip at lower pressures, as well as gain the peace of mind from a tubeless tire's self-sealing properties.

Good Multi Task-ers

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used this for my cross country mountain bike, mostly for training and a little bit of commuting. They are one of the smoothest rolling ties I could find, the harder compound in the center seems to last pretty well on asphalt and hard surfaces. I've used them on everything from gravel, dirt, asphalt and am satisfied with the performance and durability.
