All hail the new king.
The Trail King ProTection derives its tread from the popular Continental Rubber Queen for maximum control in soft mud and rocky conditions. This Apex ProTection version offers increased durability, puncture resistance, and hassle-free tubeless compatibility -- all with a minimal weight sacrifice. To start thing off, Continental equips all trail kind models with their Black Chili rubber compound reserved for their top German-made tires. An open tread patten excels in wet, rocky conditions, and resists pack-up in mud.
The beefed up Protection casing features 4 fabric plies and a total of 240 TPI for extended durability. APEX sidewall reinforcement (2.4 inch only) furthers pinch flat protection at low pressures. And finally, RTR tubeless technology means compatibility with UST and tubeless ready rims when paired with Continental Revo Sealant.
