Grab Techy KOMs With The Kings

Continental's collection of Trail King tires excel in wet rocky, root-filled, and muddy conditions. This ProTection version offers increased durability, puncture resistance, and hassle-free tubeless compatibility -- all with a minimal weight sacrifice. The Trail Kings features Continental's tacky Black Chili rubber and an open, debris-tossing tread design. The beefed-up Protection casing features 4 fabric plies and a total of 180 TPI for extended durability. APEX sidewall reinforcement (on both the 2.2 & 2.4in) 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.


  • Advanced Black Chili rubber compound with dense particles for speed, grip and durability
  • Tough ProTection casing with 4 fabric plies of 240 TPI.
  • Extra fabric ply ensures puncture resistance and sidewall reinforcement over the Race Sport model
  • Folding bead
  • Tubeless ready.
  • 29 x 2.2 Inch (55-622 ISO), 29 x 2.4 Inch (60-622 ISO)
  • 945 grams (2.4 inch), 850 grams (2.2 inch)
  • Recommended pressure: 36-51 (2.4"), 44-58 (2.2") PSI.

Grip great and super fast, but dont last as long as some others.

I used this on the rear of my 29'er hard tail, I am 200lbs, so I am not easy on tires. After 2 seasons and maybe 200 miles, the tread and grip are still great, but the tires have started seeping sealant from everywhere. This just started at the end of last season. Wish they would have lasted longer, Ill probably go back to maxxis. Putting fresh sealant in every other ride is getting old.

A good all 'rounder
by Eric L.

I've put over 300 miles on a 2.3" Cross King on the rear and 2.4" Trail King on the front of my hardtail. They've both surprised me at how much grip they have on San Diego's loose-over-hard riding conditions. The Trail King's done everything I've asked of it, from pointing up loose, steep hills to rolling down pavement at inadvisable speeds. I've been impressed by its performance on hard ground!

The few times I've ridden it through shallow southern California mud, it's had no problem clearing the tread.

No issues with any snake bites or burping when combined with Conti's tire sealant. I plow into rocks on every ride, but the "protection" marketingspeak's been true.

Great downcountry front/longer travel rear

In the Wasatch area of Utah on a Giant Trance Pro 29x2.4 up front, 29x2.35 Mountain King rear - both Black Chili.

Weight and size are spot on. Great front tire with excellent braking and steering. Think light, easy rolling version of DHRII. Durable, sets up tubeless easily. On an "upcountry" (okay, there's no such thing, but longer travel, more enduro oriented, like 130+mm) this would likely make a nice rear tire paired with a grippier front.
