Continental X-King Black Chili 27.5 Tire
The X- King is a super 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 variety 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 ProTection casing.
The ProTection casing is a protective layer that offers equal tread and sidewall protection and is 25% lighter and 30% more puncture resistant than proceeding Conti tires with DuraSkin protection. The ProTection casing provides a Revolution Tubeless Ready bead and exclusively uses the Black Chili compound. In 2007, Black Chili compound hit the market. It has been a hit with cyclists ever since. Black Chili improves tire performance in all areas. It 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.

To set up tubeless, I pre-seated them with a tube, removed tube, and used compressed air to re-seat with no problems.
I bought the 2.4 for the front and 2.2 for the rear for my new bike, and neither are close on the specified width. With 25mm internal width rims the 2.4 measures 2.28" and the 2.2 measures 2.11".

I will say that while the tire lasted, it was great. Fast and lots of grip, consistent from the center to the shoulders.
