Continental X-King Pure Grip MTB Folding Tyre - 29"
Super fast, nevertheless with a good grip, the X-King was developed with the Topeak Ergon mountain bike professional team. Despite pronounced studs, the X-King rolls off smoothly and very quietly. No matter if you are on your own or in a team, with Race and Mountain King, the super-light X-King easily covers many uses, ranging from cross country/race to All Mountain. The X-King simply leaves its competitors behind. Its Black Chili Compound offers a solid grip and is self-cleaning. The shoulder lugs provide absolute stability in curves negotiated at high speeds.
  • Compound: PureGrip, Blackchilli
  • Revolution Tubeless Ready
  • Bead: Folding
  • Construction: 3 ply - 180 tpi
My bikepacking bike came with 2.2 X-Kings fitted as standard. I really liked the tyres but found them very narrow so when I spotted the 2.4s here I got a pair. They roll really well on hard surfaces and grip better on soft ground than you would expect given their easy rolling nature. The only downside for me is that they are tricky to set up tubeless despite claiming to be tubeless ready.
