Plus quidco have 10% for click and collects at the moment so potentially another £2.80 cheaper and if you have a BC membership another 10% of that so £22.40 I think that makes it the cheapest I've ever seen these tyres go for. When its dry, the Race Kings are faster, cleaner and safer with a rolling resistance is almost on a par with semi-slick tyres with the added protection of the Tubeless ready ProTection casing and extra grip for the Blackchili compound.
Now considered a legendary tyre, the Race King heralded the advent of the current Continental MTB tyre range. Irina Kalentieva won two World Championships on Race King tyres as well as countless other wins.
Continental refine newly developed synthetic rubbers with natural rubber with the proven high-performance tread compound. They use these rubbers with special nanometric carbon soot particles, which are optimized in shape and surface properties for best uses for the intended tyre. BlackChili Compound reaches an unprecedented of performance. Tyres with BlackChili Compound reach an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to the previous best Activated Silica Compound, BlackChili tyres have 26% less rolling resistance, a 30 % higher friction value (grip) and a 5% increase in mileage.
Better than ever before, the new Continental ProTection casing. The extra all-round puncture protection layer renders the casings especially durable and insensitive to damage or penetration from foreign elements. Treads and sidewalls are equally protected, and are 25% lighter and offer 30% more puncture protection than their predecessors protected by DuraSkin®. Rolling resistance and absorption has also significantly improved. The new Made in Germany technology allows it to withstand even the hardest trails across the world. What’s more: they’re universally usable, are inspired by BlackChili Compound and have anaesthetically pleasing sidewall design. The new Revolution Tubeless Ready Bead improves the application of Tubeless Ready Tyres. For optimal results with sealing for tubeless use and whilst riding, we recommend the application of the new Continental RevoSealant.
About MTB Off-Road Tyres
These tyres are for mountain bikes and intended primarily for off road use, the knobbly patterns provide grip when steering and traction when applying power to the pedals. There is usually a tyre to suit the conditions in which you are riding in so the right choice is important. On dry days a narrow tyre with a smoother central tread can be used, but on a wet day a wider tyre with a deeper knobbly tread pattern is essential or you could be the one in contact with the mud.
