When it’s dry, the Race King is faster, cleaner and safer. Rolling resistance is almost on a par with race bike tyres. It's a proven winner with countless UCI victories courtesey of the Topeak-Ergon team with Irina Kalentieva at its head. When combined with your choice of UST/Rigida/Nagesti rim an airtight chamer is formed doing away with the need for a tube, therefore saving weight and helping to increase speed. This tyre is a serious option for XC racers

Использую второй сезон , ни одного прокола , по асфальту мало шумят , стоят на колесах shimano xt , катаю без герметика, хотя многие рекомендуют. Достаточно легкие , из всех тех которые у меня были до этого -CONTINENTAL пока самые лучшие.
Я не ошибся с выбором!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Superman Predictable, fast rolling, but not the lightest in it's class
This is a good quality tyre. I bought a set of 2.2 UST Race Kings. They are very predictable, I feel that some more aggressive tyres have knoblies on the side that catch things on the trail that can make for a twitchy ride, not with this tyre. It is not a all-rounder, but it does what it should in all conditions. It is not a mud tyre, but I would still race in mud with it due to being so predictable. Sealed ok first time on my UST rims. It is not as light as I would have hoped, but the strength and quality of the 2.2 UST version makes up for this. Well recommended!

I had this tyres on my hard tail, and I used them for cross country. I never had a tyre that gets so many punctures such as this one, on a five hour ride on bouth tyres your minimum is of 3 to 5 punctures sure, and I am not joking

A good tyre, rolls really fast is quiet on the hard stuff and surprisingly grippy for such a small tread pattern. I had a nightmare getting a seal onto the rim though the most dificult UST I have ever fitted. the 2.0 version is very small

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous An excellent tyre for rear application. I run a 2.4 Mountain King up front with a 2.2 Race King at the rear. It is a great combination. The Race King does not give enough grip for front wheel use on loose surfaces in my opinion. But as a rear tyre it is fast, predictable and provides plenty of grip in most situations. Will buy again when mine wears out

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent tyre
Have previously ridden the Crossmark exception from Maxxis (2.1) and was very pleased with that tyre. Used RK 2.2 supersonic for a month now, and I've got a new favourite tyre. Great rolling resistance. Works great both on paved roads and in the backcountry. Will try the UST version this fall in endurance XC-races (7-8 hours) to avoid punctures and maintain rolling resistance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great tyres!
Very impressed with the race king. Have used for about 1 year now [F & R].Low rolling resistance/fast, very predictable on hard pack, slides as opposed to letting go suddenly.Quiet on sealed roads. I use for all conditions.
Excellent on hard pack single tracks/rocks/dirt & sealed roads. Very stable. Excellent wear rate.High volume. Have onother two on order from CR at the mo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous not bad
After only one ride i was impressed with the race king. It was a little twitchy which you would expect from a race tyre. I was used to running tyres which were a little more predictable but where these sacrifice in predictability they make up for in speed. These tyres are very fast, and i must say the fastest tyres i have ever used compared to the grip they achieve.
