The Mountain King 29er benefits from a totally restructured tread pattern, taking its rightful place on the throne with reliable grip in both loose and dry conditions. This ProTection model also features the proven Black Chili rubber compound, plus an extremely durable, yet race-ready construction.
While last year's design excelled specifically in soft conditions, the new Mountain King offers more well rounded performance. Short center lugs don't slow you down on hardpack, while a larger center 'void' effectively tosses mud aside. Continental has also beefed up the shoulder lugs for improved cornering on wide variety of terrain.
The beefed up Protection casing features 4 fabric plies and a total of 240 TPI for extended durability. Finally, RTR tubeless technology means compatibility with UST and tubeless ready rims when paired with Continental Revo Sealant.
