Continental Cyclocross King Wire Tyre
The X-King for cross riders After a successful start on the MTB scene, the award winning X-King pattern is now available to cyclocross racers and recreational riders. Continental developed a tread pattern that is studded enough to work well in muddy conditions, yet roll like a semi slick in a straight line. Ask countless MTB XC racers and they'll tell you that the X-King is fast! The tall shoulder lugs do provide great bite in the loose and wet corners and of course, our special Black Chili soft compound boosts grip in all situations whether they be hard & dry, cold & wet, roots, off-cambers, grass or stone. When the tyre deforms under impact with the ground, the Black Chili compound aborbs the shock and propels you forward like no other tyre. It's fast, grippy and it lasts as long as a harder compound tyre, giving you great value for money! - Rec inflation pressure: 56psi (35mm), 50psi (42mm) - Max inflation pressure: 85psi - Weight: 450g (35mm), 490g (42mm)

In 1987 (just the 90 years after forming!) they started a mail order side to their business, which helped them to expand - and as per the rest of their competition, launched their website in 2001. In order to deal with the increase in business, the company moved to Bamber Bridge, which resulted in the closure of their Watery Lane shop, and eventual upsizing to yet another warehouse in Leach Place.
In terms of actual cycling, Ribble have historically sponsored some of the most iconic riders in UK and world cycling history; Chris Boardman and Bradley Wiggins have both successfully competed on Ribble bikes. Other noted riders include the ladies Barcelona 92 Time trial team, the 1990's RT Italia race team and Steph Forrester at the Sydney Olympics. In short, they like to support the sport that they trade in!
