Continental Mountain King II ProTection 26"

The Mountain King II is now in its second reign, strengthening its rule over the trail bike scene. The shoulder lugs have been beefed up, creating more space between the center and side lugs to shed mud for better grip, especially when flying into a turn. The Mountain King II provides plenty of traction for various terrains from muddy to loose over hard packed and can be run on the front, rear, or both. This version of the Mountain King II features Continental’s ProTection-RTR casing which increases sidewall protection while also providing a UST compatible Revolution Tubeless Ready bead. The Mountain King II has once again claimed its throne upon modern trail bikes!

In 2007, Black Chili compound hit the market. It has been a hit with cyclists ever since, as it has proven to improve tire performance in all areas. The BlackChili compound 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.

        I really like these tires. In Atlanta, the Mountain King have been a good general use tire for me. Stopping on hard surfaces as well as the local muck has been good so far. Making them run tubeless was completely effortless. Overall I am very happy with these tires.

        Comments about Continental Mountain King II Protection:

        I only have about 100 miles on this tire. I have the 2.2 I am using it as a front tire (tubeless with stans) and so far it has been great. The only downside I have seen so far is that installing this tire on the rim was a probably the most difficult tire I have ever installed on a rim, it almost seemed too small. After I got it on the rim I was able to seat the bead with a floor pump no issues. The tire gives confidence in the corners and seems to be durable. Also Great looking tire.
