All hail the Enduro King.

Now available in the increasingly popular 27.5 inch size, the Trail King derives its tread from the popular Continental Rubber Queen for maximum control in soft mud and rocky conditions. This ProTection RTR version offers increased durability, puncture resistance, and hassle-free tubeless compatibility -- all with a minimal weight sacrifice.

To start thing off, Conti 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.

Recommended pressure: 50 PSI. Max. pressure: 65 PSI. Folding bead. Handmade in Germany. Available in 27.5 x 2.2 Inch (55-584 ISO) and 27.5 x 2.4 Inch (60-584 ISO). Claimed weight: 855/990g.

A new favorite tire

These are my new favorite all around tires. After trying a few other, these are the ones staying on my bikes. I use these on both may hard tail and full suspension bike. They set up tubeless well on my Stan's based wheels, and the Spank Oozy 295 wheels. I run them at 25 psi with Continental sealer. Their grip is quite predictable, even when they slip a little, they never seem to completely wash out. The rolling resistance is actually less then I expected for a knobby tire, but it's still there. Overall, a confidence inspiring tire in mud, roots and hard pack that I have been over so far. My only reason for giving them 4 stars for value is because the price is average with most tires of this style. That said, they are worth every penny.

Tried these tires for muddy fall weather, as the tires Maxxis Crossmark that came with the bike were slipping. I'm riding hilly singletrack with a lot of roots & rocks & these have really made a difference. They can be run tubeless although I'm not running them this way. I'm running 25 psi!

I've been riding this tire for 4 years now in the 26" size. I bought a new bike with a new wheel size so this was the first upgrade I made. These tires work for wet slimy trails or dry rocky ones. I've used a lot of tires over the years and the Trail Kings are really that good. Point and shoot. Climbing or descending. Do yourself a favor ans check them out.
