Continental X-King Protection 27.5 Tire

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.

Not a good option for front tire in Colorado Front Range
I used this as a front tire for the Colorado Front Range. The rubber compound has poor traction as a loose over hard pack tire. The tire washed out twice with no warning or controlled give. The first time was on a flat turn and no big deal. The second time was landing on the down slope of a roller and was not pretty. The tire did mount easily and held sealant very well. I have removed the tire after 1 ride. With a different rubber compound I think it would be great. If you have any moisture in or bite to your soil it all I think it would work also. Just not made for the conditions that I ride in.

Excelent tires!
Had the Mountain Kings which didn't seem to want to roll very fast. The X-Kings roll noticeably faster.

PROS: Aired Up Easy, Fast Rolling Tire

CONS: none

"Tubeless Ready" is a joke
Extremely difficult to setup tubeless. Sucks because I have to run a tube and 35 psi. But this tread pattern grips well in dirt and slickrock. Wouldn't use it for mud, though.

For a skinny little thing it really hooks up!
I have to say, riding on my home Colorado rotten granite (ball bearings) this tire does a great job. Rolls fast, confident cornering. The only thing is, it looks pretty tiny compared to my 2.4's on my all mountain rig. Overall, very happy so far.

Solid Tire
Good solid light tire for mountain biking. Good grip which prevents slipping, and light enough for long rides. Highly recommend this tire.

PROS: Attractive Design, Durable, Lightweight

Great alternative to Racing Ralph
Great alternative to Racing Ralph. More bite in the corners but with higher rolling resistance.

Good back tire
Put set of these on my 160mm travel trail bike; great on back but not so much as a front. Recommend Trail King for the front. As with all Conti tires, tubeless seals up easily.

Great grip, roll fast, but not true to size
These tires a well suited for the mostly hardpacked, sometimes rooty, and occasional rocky sections on my central Illinois trails. Predictable and consistent grip in corners as a front tire compared to the Ardent it replaced. Good traction and low rolling resistance as a rear tire.

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".
