Resistance of this tire is very low and great for hard pack soils. Not great for sandy or the wet side of tacky. Mount it up, Bro.

My go-to tire - Apr 24, 2014

1 2 3 4 5
5 out of 5 stars
Anderson, IN

The Continental Race King is one of my favorite all-around tires. It's low knob profile and low weight make it one of my go-to tires for a long CX race or hard pack courses. It has a very low rolling resistance and even hooks up well in rocky, loose terrain. The side-wall protection is also a great asset for this tire. My only complaint, even though it's minor, is that I would like to see the tire with the low center knobs for fast rolling but also a slightly higher cornering profile to hook up better when cornering. Despite this, I would still highly recommend the Race King and think it deserving of a 5-star rating.

Very Fast Tire - Apr 23, 2014

5 out of 5 stars
BAKERSFIELD, CA

This is a very fast tire with lots of volume for a 2.2. In fact the Race King is larger than the XKing 2.2 and also the MKII 2.2. I use this as a rear tire 29er HT for hardpack and a XKing in front. The traction is amazing considering the small and closely spaced blocks.

SOUTHERN TRAILS TIRE - Apr 23, 2014

1 2 3 4
4 out of 5 stars
HOUSTON, TX

For those of you who are interested in a good trail or racing tire. This is a good choice. I ride hard packed trails here in southern Texas where there are steep short climbs. No rocks but plenty of roots to hop over. The tread is shallow so they spin in the loose stuff like sand or deep leaves or loose gravel. I run them tubeless with half a cup of stans. The tires are light weight but offer good protection. I highly recommend them to people who want a good durable light tire.

Great Value - Apr 11, 2014

5 out of 5 stars
Fort Wayne, IN

This is not Black Chili version which will either be RaceSport or Protection model and made in Germany. However, the compound isn't all that bad and it is quality tire. I have a set of these on my 29er for the past year and have put over 2000 miles on them so far. The knobs in the rear are a lot shorter than they were but they still work. I have only gotten one puncture on them (piece of glass) and it only flatted because I was completely out of sealant (dried up). I've ran these tires on all kinds of surfaces and and conditions. They are NOT for greasy/mud situations at all as these are FAST rolling XC tires. Overall these are a great value tire, and money well spent.

I don't like them. - May 30, 2013

Cupertino, CA

I used to use this tire both front and rear and didn't like them. They weren't all to fast rolling and quickly wore out. There is nothing special about these and I wouldn't recommend these. A Kenda Slant Six or a Schwalbe racing ralph is a better alternative to these.
