Continental X-King Folding 26" Tire

Pronounced cross king, the X-king is between a race tire and an all mountain tire. This fast rolling tire has an aggressive tread which is perfect for gripping both hard and loose terrain. The shoulder lugs hook-up like super glue during high- speed cornering. The symmetrical center section provides excellent climbing and braking traction.

YMMV but this worked for me

Comments about Continental X-King Folding 26" Tire:

I think the secret to bike products is knowing what your intents are. Once you go above the threshold and get a decent product, now you have to specifically know what you need in a product. In this case, I need a cheap tire, tracks well, but doesn't need as aggressive of a knob pattern. I found it in this tire, and I've always liked Continentals.

Comments about Continental X-King Folding 26" Tire:

I have Loved the Conti X-King / Trail-King tires I've had in the past, all with "Protection" and "Black-Chilli" compound.
This tire (folding) didn't have any of that, and it is does a little worse without.
But considering the great price, I'm happy

    Comments about Continental X-King Folding 26" Tire:

    Purchases this tire to replace a sidewall cut on my Schwalbe Racing Ralph (2.1). Looking for something with a bit more volume than the RR. Went with the 2.2 X-King, but after mounting and airing up, they were more like a 2.0 instead. Kept the tire for the rear and purchased a 2.4 for the front, which is more like a 2.2 for most other manufacturers....just something to keep in mind when purchasing. Other than that it is a great tire with really great traction and low rolling resistance.

      Comments about Continental X-King Folding 26" Tire:

      I commute to school, dirt jump, and ride single track all with the same bike. I needed a tire that rolls fast, but will bite enough for a hill climb. I had the tires for about a month and I am quite pleased. The low rolling resistance does not compromise climbing ability. The only slight draw back from these tires is cornering on really hard surfaces (roads and sidewalks). Overall I am quite satisfied with the tires.

        I have put these tires to a couple good test and they were great! Since the tread is not that deep they do not allow a lot a mud to get packed in. Great on the dirt and loose rock.

          The 2.2 size is narrower than the 2.2 Trail Kings.
          Rolls quick and depending on how the tire pressure, grabs adequately enough in corners.
