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.

Great Product! So far
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.

PROS: Easy To Install, Durable, Smooth Ride

BEST USES: Casual Riding, Mountain Biking

X King
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.

PROS: Fast Rolling, Lightweight

Great durability, traction, and speed
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.

PROS: Lightweight, Durable

Good Value
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

PROS: Lightweight, Easy To Install, Durable, Attractive Design

CONS: Needs "black-chilli"

YMMV but this worked for me
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.

x-king 2.4 folding bead
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.
