Tyres Continental Race King for cross-country cycling
The Race King Tyres give a confident grip, are extremely fast and come with a dependable flat protection; this is why the Race King is the tyre of choice for many cyclists. The tyre is equipped with ProTection, is light in weight and offers good puncture protection throughout the tyre. The Continental ProTection series used on the Race King are UST tubeless-ready tyres that do not need liquid sealant to hold air.
Beads are a taut fit and snap into place securely without any hassle. The Pro Tection sidewall has a firm feel with a spring to the casing under hand that is like that of a thicker free-ride tyre. The tyre allows the rider to run with lower pressures than what they could with superlight tyres. This makes for better stability and lessens sidewall squirm.
The Continental Race King tyres are big giving a more comfortable ride and making them easier to control in rough terrain than those of thinner race tyres . Other attributes of the Race Kings are the low rolling resistance and the reliable grip of the tread profile. The Black Chili compound offers smooth cornering and handles a variety of surfaces well giving the rider the confidence when tipping the bike into turns. The tread of the tyres Race King Continental remain in a good condition for a far longer time than softer race-day tyres
