The X-King convinces with its versatility. The smooth running tyre for mountain bikes adapts to any terrain. It scores with perfect cornering and quiet rolling. In addition, it offers very good grip with low rolling resistance, the special tread promotes self-cleaning. This makes it a first-class competition and all-round tyre.
PureGrip Compound comes from activated silica compound and is a good example of how Continental continuously integrates customer feedback into research and development. This mixing technology joins seamlessly with the BlackChili Compound. The name PureGrip is the name of the game. Exceptionally good grip and longevity characterize this compound.
Continental uses PureGrip in its performance products in the road bike and mountain bike segments.
Tubeless Ready tires can be driven with or without inner tube, as the tire and rim are designed to seal directly against each other. Compared to UST tires, however, tubeless ready tires are much lighter and therefore air-permeable in the sidewall. This is sealed with special sealing milk. All Continental mountain bike tyres are tubeless ready in the ProTection and performance versions. The revolutionary Tubeless Ready foot allows an easy and uncomplicated mounting of the tyre. For optimum sealing and application results, we recommend the use of the new Continental RevoSealant sealant .
When mounted correctly, the system is relatively airtight and less sensitive to snake bites than folding or wire tyres. Especially voluminous mountain bike tyres benefit from this design. Tubeless Ready tires can be driven with lower operating pressure. The risk of breakdowns is considerably lower because there is no hose that can penetrate. Even the "wandering" of the tyre on the rim has no consequences. It also improves off-road grip, comfort and rolling resistance.
