Continental  X-King Protection UST Ready Fold 26 x 2.2 Tyre

The X-King (26") is a super fast, nevertheless has good grip thanks to its BlackChili compound with ProTection tubless ready casing. Developed with the Topeak Ergon mountain bike team & despite pronounced studs, the X-King rolls smoothly & quietly.

No matter if its on its own or teamed 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.

The tubeless ready Protection (4 ply) version with a continous flag design is particularly robust and impervious to damage or the entering of foreign objects.

BlackChili Compound

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.
