    Comments about Continental Race King 29 Tire:

    Have used this model as a front tire for the past three years (full suspension cross country racing and trail riding). When I have used them as rear tires in Rocky terrain they have all failed relatively early on due to sidewall cuts. Out of the box it seats relatively easily and has only minimal air leakage through sidewalls--a little more stans and that problem is solved. Treadl-life is slightly above average. I Use race king protection as a rear tire.... On rigid single speed use race king protection front and rear.

    Comments about Continental Race King 29 Tire:

    Still figuring this tire out. Need to run higher pressure than other 29er tires I've used or it will roll over in a hard turn. I got a little loose with them a number of times in corners too. I think its because the tread pattern doesn't really go around the tire much on the sides.

    • Can Not Use Tubeless
    • Leaky Sidewalls

    Comments about Continental Race King 29 Tire:

    I really wanted to like these tires but I can't get them to hold air. Over the course of the last three weeks I have been unable to get the sidewalls to seal. I've tried Stan's, Orange Seal and some home brew tricks but the sidewalls continue to leak. During the course of a 1.5 hour ride they loose about 10 to 12 psi. At the beginning of rides the tires are awesome. The speed and traction is unparalleled however I can't recommend them. Very disappointing.

    Comments about Continental Race King 29 Tire:

    Good fast rolling tire. Used it recently at the 24 hours of Old Pueblo and a hill climb race, set up tubeless. No flats or traction issue in dry hard pack conditions. Survived the cactus and rocky descents with no signs of wear or damage. Not sure how it would do as a front tire, but in the rear works great. As with any tire like this durability may be an issue.

    Was looking for something quick and light. These tires do the job. They are on my full rigid 29er and I fly with these. Even in mud, I was able to keep going.
