Now considered a legendary tyre, the Race King is heralded the advent of the current Continental MTB tyre range and the Continental Race King Performance 26" Folding Mountain Bike Tyre upholds that even with the most basic model. Irina Kalentieva won two World Championships on Race King tyres as well as countless other wins. When it’s dry, the Race King is faster, cleaner and safer with a rolling resistance that is almost on a par with race bike tyres. Not only is the Race King Performance tyre folding, making it lighter Conti have also added their Pure Grip Compound to give you a longer lasting more durable grip.

The PureGrip compound is based on activated silica compounds, this technology was originally intended as an performance level compound, but after intensive development at Conti’s Korbach Research and Development Department Facility, an advanced new compound with outstanding grip and cross-country properties was developed. This new rubber mix, given the self explanatory name “PureGrip”, is ranked just behind their BlackChili Compound and is being used in our performance products both in the road and mountain bike sectors. Whilst providing great grip, it is also long lasting and highly durable, both characteristics of Continental tyres, which are exclusively manufactured in Conti’s factory in Hefei (Asia).
