    Nicest tire I have owned. Perfect for 6-7" AM bike for those who ride to the top but like to shred rocky terrain. I bought the non-UST but worked great tubless with a little stans. Burped once on steep down at whistler, pumped it up and no problems since. They have super high profile allowing for low pressure riding and compliance over rough terrain. It is probably close to 27.5 wheel OD.

    The 2.4 is probably too big for regular trail riding. I may order the 2.2 for my blur. They are a little slow compared to my X-king, but that is no surprise. Way more traction though.

    Highly recommended for aggressive AM. Perfect match for my nomad.

    Paid the big bucks for this tire because it was high volume, lightish, great tread, and tubeless ready. The tires took some extra effort to hold air, with stans. After running the tires around 27 psi i ripped a tear on the sidewall from the tire folding over and pinching. That tire won't hold air tubeless anymore. Then i hit a loose corner really fast and stretched the side wall, making the tire wobbly and uneven. Beware of low psi and sidewall issues.

      heavy but worth it for aggressive riding. black chili does real well on wet rocks. Set up ghetto tubeless was pretty easy. I run about 25 psi which seems to do good.

        Great Tires. I have this on the front of my Ibis SL. Great for Utah when the trails are not muddy. Good for tubeless. I haven't had any issues. Also good to 25 psi, if you want it that low.

        Comments about Continental Trail King Protection 2.4:

        I have a pair of these on a '12 Giant Trance. I consider this a perfect all around tire for New England trails. Hard pack, clay, granite and roots are no issue. Mud, however, is.

        I use these for AM riding and for trials riding. The side walls are stiffened with reinforcement. So, I can run them @ 20 psi on a 20mm rim without fold over.

        These tires are heavy at 960g, not 650g like Jenson's description.

        Comments about Continental Trail King Protection 2.4:

        Black Chilli compound lives up to the hype. Extremely grippy without sacraficing too much rolling resitance. Far better than Maxxis 3C compound for tread life. Breaks predicatbly in corners. Great for both front and back applications.

        It should be noted that these tires are true to size and therefore run larger than most. i.e. this 2.4 runs more like a Maxxis 2.5.

        I run these on an AM/FR built 09 Remedy and have been equally impressed with their ability on the climbs as on fast technical descents.

        Though Conti bills the 2.3 Baron as its Enduro tire, this is a much more versitile contender.

          High volume tire delivers excellent traction and allows for low tire pressures when the track calls for it. Rolls extremely well given the size of tread on the tire. I typically used Kenda's equivalent tires in the past that had excellent traction as well but did not roll nearly as fast as these do. Need to wait and see how long they last.

              I ride this tire in the forward direction on the rear wheel for a little less rolling restistance. It's good in all conditions and it handles everything pretty well. I haven't tried it tubless but might soon. I get plenty of traction climbing, cornering, braking and everywhere in between.

              Comments about Continental Trail King Protection 2.4:

              Great tire. It is a very large volume 2.2; as large as some 2.3 or 2.4 from other companies. It is a great front tire; a lot of grip, fairly light, not a lot of rolling resistance, and holds corners well in the loose stuff. I highly recommend this tire.
