Pros & Cons

Pros & Cons

  • The wide knobs ensure optimum grip and high traction.
  • The ProTection protective layer offers extra puncture protection.
  • Tubeless compatibility allows riding with lower tyre pressure for the best grip.
  • The knobs have enough clearance so that mud does not clump as quickly grip is maintained.
  • Tubeless Ready technology makes the tyres easy to make tubeless with 90ml of latex sealant per tyre.
  • This tyre is less suitable for extremely muddy conditions.
  • Tubeless sealant should generally be topped up every 3-6 months.

Description

Description

Continental's Cross King ProTection MTB tyres are tubeless ready and have a tread with wide knobs for optimal grip. They are true all-round tyres, ideal for dry forest floors and offering plenty of grip in wetter conditions.

Puncture protection
The Cross King tyre has excellent puncture protection thanks to the ProTection technology. The sidewalls are made of the so-called BlackChili compound, which provides excellent protection against cuts from sharp stones and thorns. In addition, it seals the tyre airtight on a tubeless rim; the latex does the rest! If you have a puncture, the latex fills the hole and you can continue to ride.

The Cross King is an all-rounder. For extreme mud tracks we recommend a Continental Mountain King ProTection tyre.

Technology

ProTection
ProTection is also called the fourth layer. This technology helps to maintain speed and grip due to the BlackChili compound but, above all, offers a great deal of puncture protection. The additional function of the ProTection technology is that the tyre is Tubeless Ready. The Tubeless Ready bead is the perfect base for uncomplicated and easy tyre mounting.

BlackChili compound
A secret recipe for making the compound. The soul of the tyre, as Continental calls it. A mix of basic raw materials where rolling resistance and grip are determined. The tyres with the BlackChili compound rank in Continental's top segment, and are characterised by high grip and low rolling resistance.

UST Tubeless
Inner tubes are superfluous due to the UST Tubeless technology. Continental's tubeless tyres can be fitted on all UST rims. The tyre and rim form an airtight chamber with no inner tube. The annoying 'snakebite' is simply no longer possible. And you can ride at lower tyre pressure, which gives you more comfort and grip; now who wouldn’t want that? In the event of a puncture, the airtight layer on the inside of the tyre can easily be repaired with ordinary repair materials.

Great Tyres

- Robert 19 November 2020

Plus - Great tyres - No leaks when tubeless - Hold tyre pressures very well Minus -Maybe not as grippy, particularly in wet conditions

5 / 5

Perfect

- Sergii 11 August 2020

Awesome tyre, good traction, perfect quality. Good road feeling and control. Bit expensive, but it worth it.

Pros & Cons

Durable
Easy fit
Good quality

5 / 5

a tyre for all seasons(almost)

- Stephen 14 June 2020

I have been running xkings on my hardtail for a couple of years now and they have been the best all round choice by a good margin. They have proved far more robust than other German brands without too much drag whilst giving grip in wet conditions (British summer for example). I am tempted to put a race king on the rear for better speed but i know I would miss the grip that the xkings provide. A excellent all round tyre.

Pros & Cons

durable
good grip
robust
pricey
slower than race kings

5 / 5

Excellent Tyre

- Keith 23 July 2019

I’ve had a few problems with tyres over the past year and these were recommended. Clearly for good reason as they are fast rolling and grippy with good puncture protection (so far!)

Pros & Cons

Fast rolling
Good puncture protection
Grippy
None so far

4 / 5

Half good.

- Jurijs 2 May 2019

I always go with conti tyres for my bikes. This time unfortunatelly one of the two I bought was faulty. While spinning it swayed left-right, although wheel was true.
