Continental Speed King RaceSport 26" Folding Mountain Bike Tyre -
Those of you that are familiar with the XC course in Offenburg know why the Continental Speed King II RaceSport 26" Folding Mountain Bike Tyre was developed. Hard, dry terrain where only one thing counts, speed. The semi slick design is a stripped down tyre designed for minimum rolling resistance and minimal weight. The slightly raised outer tread gives sure grip for cornering at high speed. The central tread is a flat, wedge shaped design, keeping rolling resistance to a minimum, whilst still giving enough traction. The high volume 2.2 RaceSport casing can be ridden with low air pressures and offers reliable puncture protection for racing use. The minimal tread design of the Speed King trades reduced longevity and limited wet weather grip for pure speed. This is a thoroughbred dry weather racing tyre, that is handmade in Germany!
Uncompromisingly designed for use in mountain bike racing: the RaceSport carcass combines logical light construction and noticeably better protection against flat tyres at the very highest level. Together with professional mountain bikers, Continental have created the perfect platform for competition tyres. Produced in Germany, they offer a 30 % better protection against flat tyres than Supersonic tyres. The construction makes the difference, particularly fine and high-grade nylon fabric with an expensive, protective rubber lining and a universal bead. Together with the legendary BlackChili Compound, this is the ultimate combination for XC racing and marathon/endurance events.
