Continental X-King 26" Protection Tire

The X- King is an insanely fast, grippy tire. Despite the pronounced studs, the X- King rolls smoothly and very quietly. This light tire has many applications. It can be used as either a front or rear tire in a veriety of terrains. The X-King is infused with Continental’s Black Chili Compound, which offers a solid grip and is self cleaning. The shoulder lugs provide absolute stability during high speed corners. This version of the X- King features two forms of cutting edge tire technology; Black Chili Compound, and Revolution Tubeless Ready System (RTR.)

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.

  • Handmade in Korbach, Germany
  • BlackChili compound provides outstanding grip and low rolling resistance
  • Fills the gap between the Mountain King II and Race King
  • Fast, high grip and excellent self-cleaning tread design
  • A dense central tread provides smooth rolling, whilst raised outer knobs provide sure cornering traction
  • Intended Use: Mountain/ XC
  • Folding Bead
  • 26” Wheel

Comments about Continental X-King 26" Protection Tire:

The tire works great. It's a little smaller than you would expect a 2.2 tire to be. I need to refill it with air every time I ride. It doesn't set up as well tubeless as other tubeless tires I've used.

        I never thought tires on a bike would make that much differance, but these do. I can go up hills I couldn't before. My average time has improved. They work well on the single track as well as pavement.

        Comments about Continental X-King 26" Protection Tire:

        Decent durability(waaaaay better than RR), but the rolling characteristics are great. It will eat sealant when installing, but then seals nicely. This is not an all rounder, it gets zero grip on wet or loose. It is a straight screamer, yet sticks nicely on hardpack and rock slabs. Not a good front tire, but solid in rear with a 'Ron in front. For this type of tire, it should be lighter, but I like it as a wicked quick rear tire for rugged, dry XC courses.

          Comments about Continental X-King 26" Protection Tire:

          I used this tire tubeless and it works great. I like the wide low knobs. It fits my style and local trails well as it rolls quick and is wide enough (2.4 version) to hook up really well.

          Comments about Continental X-King 26" Protection Tire:

          I immediately noticed the difference in traction while turning. I am able to lean in and the tire just sticks. I have not tried this tire in any muddy conditions, but for dry hardpacked it works great.

            Comments about Continental X-King 26" Protection Tire:

            I won a set of these tires in an online contest, and I love them. They roll quite fast and grip well despite the small-ish knobs. The 2.2 version isn't too heavy, which is a plus for me, and they seem to be wearing well. The rubber does feel pretty soft, so I'm sure road miles would quickly wear them down. That said, though, they're just about perfect for my hardpack XC riding conditions.

            Pros

            • Consistent Knobbing

            • Roots
            • Sandy

            Comments about Continental X-King 26" Protection Tire:

            I have not tried a ton of tires but of the ones I have ridden on, I like these the best. The knob pattern is consistent which makes flat-land cornering fun and easy. The trails that I ride have a bunch of roots and sometimes in the worst places. These tires grip them well. The tough sidewall adds weight but I can see where it would be useful. Good all-rounder. I have even put a pair on my friend's bike and they saw a huge improvement in traction and stability.

              Comments about Continental X-King 26" Protection Tire:

              Good all arounder, but not for muddy conditions. I have a set of RaceSport 2.2s mounted up right now. Setup for tubeless was easy (using ZTR Flow rims). Just used them for a 12 hour endurance race on a very diverse course. They performed flawlessly.....this is my second set of X-Kings and when I wear these out I'll be putting on another set.
