Continental Mountain King MTB Tyre Sale - 26" and 29"
The tread lug arrangement was developed in collaboration with professional mountain bikers, resulting in an exceptionally light yet positively tough trail tyre. Trail riders, Cross Country racers, Alpine tourists and Marathon riders – this is a serious intermediate tyre option.
Dirt Magazine continues their glowing appraisal by saying " is as close as we have found to the perfect all-round trail tyre.." which carries on the legacy of its predecessor the Vertcal ProTection many moons ago...

Not gone far on this yet but immediate big improvement on the OEM tyre which I think was made of plastic. On the front, it grips and steers - great! Price was unbeatable for a premium tyre. Can't comment on puncture resistance yet.
