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)
