Continental Trail King Protection 27.5

Continental Trail King 27.5 Tire

All hail the Trail King! Ruler of All-Mountain rubber! The Continental Trail King is a superior all-mountain tire with an aggressive tread pattern for excellent grip on a variety of surfaces, ensuring you'll dominate the trail at every turn. Now available for the 27.5" wheel size, the Trail King hands down it's legacy of shredding glory to the new generation of mountain bikes. Special Apex-reinforced sidewall protects against punctures and ProTection technology incorporates a puncture protection layer and tubeless capability.

This version of the Trail King features Continental's famous Black Chili compound. Black Chili compound hit the market in 2007, and has been a hit with cyclists ever since, as it has proven to take tire performance to the next level, 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.

Features:

  • Handmade in Korbach, Germany
  • Continental's Black Chili Compound
  • Robust 4/240 tpi casing
  • Claimed weight: 2.2 (775g), 2.4 (990g)
  • Recommended PSI: 2.2 (50-65 psi), 2.4 (45-58 psi)
  • ProTection technology tubeless ready
  • Provides killer grip on even the slickest wet rocks and roots
  • Special Apex-reinforced sidewall protects against punctures

Replaced Mountain King 2
Now I have a matched set front and rear. Replaced with wider rim after old rear was destroyed with dings. Traction is great, rolls over roots and rocks like a tractor. Mountain King would side step in the wet and ping off of rocks. Mud performance was a surprise, didn't pack up, just have to keep grinding away. Yes it is heavy, but I do this for exercise, so it doesn't matter to me. Can't wait to ride Downieville with it.
Great traction, surprisingly good in the mud. Rolls over wet roots and rocks like a tractor.

Impressed!!!
I mounted these tires up before my last race and have to say they have incredible traction. The dirt was loose over hard pack and these tires just hooked up. I think that this may be my go to tire, rolling speed isn't the fastest but ill take traction over rolling resistance.

PROS: Corner Speed, Traction, Easy install

My favorite tire
My favorite tire. Square profile, high volumes, true to size or wider (2.4). The sidewalls are very stout and have survived many close calls and sharp rocks. Last vwry long as well. My front tire has outlasted Michelins, scwalbe, and high rollers on the same bike and riding conditions. Does NOT shear side lugs like you read on so forum or like your buddy's buddy said! Airs up and takes tubeless first try. Just set the tire in the sun for an hour after unpacking (as with all folded rubber)

Grip Grip Grip
These tires work well for me in the NorthEast. Mud and loose rock can appear quick and these tires inspire confidence. Not the fastest tire out there but they don't feel like an anchor. Running tubeless and they drink up a bit of sealant before sealing. One star off bec a knob sheared off to the carcass on first ride out. I've used Continetal for some time and this is a first, so I'm not viewing as a quality issue.

Will these tires fit on a 2015 specialized 650 stumpjumper - just want to make sure before I purchase them.
Michael on Oct 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm not familiar with the 650 SJ but I believe you have a 650B SJ which has 27.5" (650B) wheels. If this is the case, then yes, they will fit the rim. Just make sure the profile is not so big that it rubs the frame. Your local bike shop will advise.
