Perfect For The Bike Park, Singletrack, And Everything In Between
The Continental Cross King is designed to roll fast on hard-packed dirt or gravel, while still retaining excellent traction through its Pure Grip Rubber Compound. The Cross King 26 inch is perfect for outfitting bike park dirt jumpers or older MTBs that need a tire refresh. Unlike many 26 inch tires of this category and price range, these come tubeless ready, meaning you can run those coveted low pressures without fear of a pinch flat.
Conditions: hardpack, loose, dry, all-around
Intended use on trails, bike parks, and cross country rides
