The Continental Race King is a proven champion time and time again. The low- profile pattern rolls faster than competing tires. The Race King handles a wide range of conditions and quickly sheds mud when conditions change.
This version of the Race King features Continental's 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.
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.

Comments about Continental Race King Revolution 29 Tire:
I wore out the rear Race King 2.2 that came with my Salsa Fargo, and I replaced it with this version just before the Dakota 5-0 this year (2012). The tire performed very well in the 5-0 except for some really loose areas, which thankfully there isn't much of here in the Black Hills.
My riding is a mix of year-round, on and off road, and I really haven't found anything yet that the tire doesn't do well or at least handle adequately. It hums a bit on the road, but not nearly as bad as other knobby tires.
I run them tubeless at around 28 PSI. Mounting the tire wasn't too difficult, especially when I finally decided to follow directions!
