Description

Continental Cross King ProTection mtb tyres are tubeless ready and have a tread with wide spacing lugs for optimum grip. Continental Cross King ProTection tyres are best suited to wet and muddy surfaces. Thanks to the Protection sidewall protection, it prevents damage from outside such as sharp stones or piercing thorns. The Protection layer also ensures that the tyre is sealed airtight on a tubeless rim and the latex does the rest. If you still have a puncture, the latex fills the hole effortlessly, and you can keep cycling.

Tom, 5 April 2019

Great and typical continental performance!

I chose this tyre as I was converting to tubeless and wanted a tyre with the best protection against punctures. It took me a while to seat the tyre on to the rim (it’s my first tubeless experience) but the feel of the tyres is thick so I trust the Protection version will do its job. Directional rotation and up to 58psi makes this tyre great for rolling resistance. I used the tyre for a mixture of trail, gravel and light mud and the tyre performs excellent for my style of riding. Price was reasonably good compared to competitors as well.

Pros

  • Sidewall branding looks good
  • Sticky black chilli rubber compound
  • Tubeless ready
  • Great all rounder tyre

Cons

  • Slightly expensive but is premium brand
  • Thick rubber can make tubeless setup tricky

Great, relatively lightweight tire.

Love it overall. Had a bit trouble seating one of the tires, but got some help from my local biek shop.

Detailed product description

ProTection
Also called the fourth layer. This technology preserves speed and grip due to the Black Chili Compound, but, above all, offers a great deal of puncture protection. The extra layer around the whole tyre carcass provides full protection. The additional function of the ProTection technology is that the tyre is Tubeless Ready. The Tubeless Ready heel is the perfect base for uncomplicated and easy tyre mounting.

Black Chili 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 BlackChili compound are from the top segment of Continental. This type of tyre allows for high grip and low rolling resistance.

UST Tubeless
Inner tubes are superfluous due to the UST Tubeless technology. Continental tubeless tyres can be fitted on all UST rims. The tyre and rim form an airtight chamber without an inner tube. The annoying “snakebite” is simply no longer possible. You can also ride with a lower tyre pressure. Lower tyre pressure provides more comfort and grip, who wouldn’t want that? The airtight layer on the inside of the tyre can easily be repaired with ordinary repair material in the event of a puncture.
