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.

Great tire with low rolling resistance. A little loose in my environment but I will try running a bit less pressure next ride.
