Continental X-King Protection 29" 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.

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.

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
  • ProTection - Revo Tubeless Ready

  • 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

  • 29” Wheel

    Comments about Continental X-King Protection 29" Tire:

    I know that seems like opposite thoughts. They were easy to get to pop on the bead. I am having a little trouble getting them to hold air after the rides. Might need to add more sealant. When I mount new tires, I always folloe the way tubeless is supposed to be set up to the T.

    Comments about Continental X-King Protection 29" Tire:

    Great tread pattern, and excellent traction. I don't have many miles on yet, but they seem very durable.

    Very stiff sidewall, would not recommend using these with tubes.

    The actual width is around 2.0, not 2.2 as stated.

        Comments about Continental X-King Protection 29" Tire:

        This is a GREAT tire. It's hard to install as tubeless. I spent about a week removing the bead and re-seating the bead to get the tire to seal correctly. It has tons of pin-hole leaks on the sidewalls and hopefully stans no-tube liquid will fix that over time. Over all I like it, but I don't like to think I have to check my tires EVERY time I ride now.

        Comments about Continental X-King Protection 29" Tire:

        I purchased these tires as a last alternative as I had a ride scheduled and needed tires bad. This is what was in stock in the needed size and price range. I was stoked at the performance they delivered compared to a set of Racing Ralph's I took off, (not that the Ralph's are a bad tire, just not good for my use). My every day ride has about 4 miles of pavement and 16 miles of CA High Desert which consists of hard pack, decomposed granite, sand and jagged rocks. The X-Kings perform great on all of these surfaces and with the protection side wall, I have yet to even see a mark from the rocks! i'm running these on a carbon hard tail 29er and have found that 28-30 psi give me good dry grip and still rolls good on the pavement. I can easily say for my are these are great tires.
