From only 450g, the Race King is our lightweight flyer

Available in an uber fast 2.0" format or a wider 2.2" option for more cushioning and grip, the Race King appeals to both dirt jumpers like Martin Soderstrom & Andre Lacondeguy, as well as top cross country riders like Topeak-Ergon's Sally Bigham with countless UCI victories to her name.

The ProTection version works best for tubeless conversion wityh its UST compatible bead. whilst the superfast RS 'RaceSport' version is a genuine race tyre with greater puncture protection than the previous Supersonic model yet without any significant weight penalty - a serious option for XC racers.

The Black Chili compound works its wonders on fast paced technical world cup tracks and marathon trails whilst the ProTection option adds extra meat to the carcass for trail riders.

Our PUREGRIP compound offers soft compound performance that Continental are renowned for, at an attractive price.

Wire bead variants are also available (non Black Chili) as well as a UST tubeless version.

Options available in all three rim dimensions of 26, 27.5 & 29". 

  • Fast rolling XC dry conditions tyre
  • World Championships winning tyre of the Topeak-Ergon UCI team  
  • Wide variety of sizes & options  
  • Good for XC & 4X racing
