Description

Description

The Continental Race King RaceSport 2018 ist one of the lightest mountain bike tyres on the market. In addition to its light weight, the Race King RaceSport is also very smooth and has an extremely low rolling resistance for an MTB tyre. The Race King tread is most suitable for dry forest, grass and sand surfaces. Thanks to its flexibility, the tyre still has a lot of grip in contrast to the Protection and Sport versions. The BlackChili compound gives the tyre the necessary durability and puncture protection.

Technology

BlackChili Compound
BlackChili Compound improves rolling resistance by 26% and provides 30% more grip compared to silica gel-based materials. Premium BlackChili Compound tyres are characterised by better performance and, unlike many other multi-compounds, consistent handling from the first kilometre to the last.

2 / 5

Lekt continue latex en verliest te snel lucht ondanks protection uitvoering.

- Bert 13 July 2021

Ondanks de protection uitvoering lekt latex (DocBlue) door zijwang en loopvlak. Verliest teveel lucht mijn inziens. Betere ervaring met de Swalbe Racing Ray die nog voorop ligt en de Racing Ralph die achterop lag. Had meer van deze band verwacht!

Pros & Cons

snel profiel
soepel
voldoende grip
latex lekt door band

4 / 5

Lekbestendigheid slecht

- Ben 15 December 2020

In de eerste rit al een lekke band, daarna bij twee banden, zowel voor en achter, een scheur achter een van de noppen. Ik rijd er nog wel op na twee nieuwe banden besteld te hebben, maar zal hierna op zoek gaan naar banden met betere lekbestendigheid. De ervaring is dus op met name gravelpaden in Zuid Limburg slecht

Pros & Cons

Soepel op de weg
Lekbestendigheid slecht

4 / 5

Snabba men känsliga

- Linus 6 September 2020

Det snabbaste och speedigaste däcket jag kört på men halkiga på blött underlag och känsliga för revor. Kanondäck om man vill rulla lätt!

Pros & Cons

Rullar lätt
Väger lite
Halkiga på blött underlag
Tunna väggar

5 / 5

heel goed

- Rens 5 June 2020

Fijne band, goede grip, weinig weerstand. Vooral fijn op hardere ondergronden in combinatie met (droge) bospaden
