Continental Race King Protection 26 Tire

Continental Race King Protection 26 Tire

The Continental Race King is a proven champion time and time again, helping Irina Kalentieva to two World Championships. The low- profile pattern rolls faster than competing tires, and handles a wide range of conditions. When it's dry, the Race King is as fast and provides as much traction as can be asked, and rolling resistance rivals that of many road tires.

This version of the Race King features Continental's Black Chili Compound. In 2007, Black Chili compound hit the market. It has been a hit with cyclists ever since, as it has proven to improve tire performance in all areas. The BlackChili compound lasts longer, grips better, and rolls faster. It has 26% less rolling resistance, 30% higher grip, and even 5% longer mileage. The Black Chili Compound is only made in Korbach Germany, and the recipe is not shared with any other tire manufacturer.

The Revolution Tubeless Ready system provides the perfect combination of smooth running, grip, and puncture protection. ProTection RTR features 4 ply heavy duty nylon (4 under tread, 3 in the sidewall.) The Revolution Tubeless Ready (RTR) system offers a UST style bead, and mid-weight casing for full tubeless compatibility. For optimal results, Continental recommends using the Continental RevoSealant with these tires.

Note: If Stan's was previously used, both the tire and rim must be scrubbed using Simple Green or a similar cleaner, before Continental Revo Sealant can be used.

Dope Tires
Rolls like a road bike and that's even after dropping the pressures to normal Mtn Bike riding. These tires give "decent" traction. If you find yourself pumping up your mtn bike tires to reduce rolling resistance, stop and buy these tires and run normal pressures again, you will be extremely happy.

I consider myself quite skilled on the downhills so these feel loose on the downhills (compared to my DTC Nevegals) and I use a slightly different riding style with these tires. More rounding the turn, less leaning on the side of the tire which means slightly lower corner speed. However these puppies more than make up for it on any straight sections you may have. Chad & Dan wish they were as fast as me!!!

Be careful. More than once I've momentarily locked the front tire when turning while descending. If you want to descend fast with these you'll need large attachments.

Tires seem to wear out fast. The nanotechnology rubber is all there, but the sidewall is showing age. The casing threads are showing after only 2 months of riding. Then I ripped a hole in a my rear tire hitting a curb too hard during a commute. But, with that said, I'll be buying more of these because they roll so good its like having an electric motor in your bike. Real bicyclers are supposed to hate that right???

Worked well for Shenandoah MTB 100
I've had two of these in about 3 years. The first one wore pretty consistently along both sidewalls. The second tore on one of the side walls.
