Continental Race King Tyre

World Champions!

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. A serious option for XC racers

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 68 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent All-Arounder!!! I'm running the Race King, 26 x 2.2, folding bead. I’ve tried a lot of brands but I really like Continental products so I guess you could say I'm somewhat biased! However, I keep coming back because they make such excellent products! Pavement: At 60-65psi, the RK rolls quickly on pavement, traction is very good and the tires wear well. I have yet to flat with these tires when riding on the street/pavement. They do exhibit a slight roll in high speed turns as the sidewalls have a bit of give, maybe a ‘bit’ thin? Off-Road/Trails: At 50-55 psi, the RK performs well off-road (soft-packed dirt, gravel, etc.#. I ride mostly well travelled paths and forest trails, nothing too gnarly. The lower pressure helps the RK conform to uneven terrain and they handle well, although they are not as nice as a tubeless set-up #goes without saying?#. The sidewall flex doesn't seem to affect off-road performance as they corner really well. They are a perfect if you commute but occasionally like to hit the trails. I probably ride about equally, on-road/off-road, and find these tires perfect for all but the toughest terrain #rocks. roots, etc# or anything wet. The knobs on these tires are not as closely spaced as some other hybrids and they tend to shed wet dirt, from the occasional puddle or slick section, but certainly do not grip well in the muddy stuff #the tire is not designed/intended for use in mud so I think it's unfair to criticize the Race King for this). As the knobs are not as closely spaced, you may find the odd twig or rock will work its way into the tire but, again, no real problems - they seem to hold up well on the terrain they are intended for and give excellent traction. Overall, an excellent tire for commuting and trail use! Give it a try! 21 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Покрышкам ЗАЧЕТ! Радуют проходимостью по грунтовым дорогам, особенно по песку. Полноценного тест-драйва по грязи им не устраивал, так как не практикую такой вид катания, однако периодически бывает что грязь попадается но и в этом случае Continental не упал в грязь лицом, катят вполне достойно. Никаких нареканий не вызвают и на асфальте, в том числе в дождь и по лужам - держат дорогу. Все супер тьфу, тьфу как бы не сглазить ) 14 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Continental Race King MTB Tyre Black, 26", 2.0", Folding Bead Excelente pneu. Transmite segurança para o ciclista 01 July 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Did not last long on rocky trails These tyres came standard on my new bike. I ripped through the side wall of my front tyre after 5 rides. I do ride on dry rocky trails but I didn't even spot the rock which caused the blow out. Upon inspection the tyre does have quite a thin side wall so I'm not surprised this happened. The weight of the tyre is pretty good for the price but I'd rather have a heavy tyre than have to make my friends wait for me while I fix my bike in the middle of a ride. Grip wise, I thought the tyres handled fairly well. I'd say they are well suited to dry trails (just watch out for rocks!). They roll nicely on road when required but don't inspire confidence in muddy sections of trail 23 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Отличные колеса за эти деньги Отличные колеса за эти деньги быстро отправили все. 18 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great all round tyre Great tyre and quiet on road and grippy off road. Would highly recommend 06 June 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by excellent setup Very quite good tire, excellent setup, remarkably holds dry coverings, on the wet can slide off at an inclination, but there is one shortcoming which spoils all good impressions literally multiplying them by zero: namely very weak lateral walls of a tire, on 3-4 patches on each tire for one season! ! ! never any more I won't take them and probably absolutely I will cease to take rubber of this producer 05 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by trés bon produit trés bon pneu je l'utilise en parck et slopstyle et il accroche trés bien sur les terrain sec par contre des que le terrain est mouiller voir humide , que ce soit terre ou goudron ils perdent toute leurs adhérence. niveaux usure ils sont plutôt bien mais il faut quand meme éviter les dérapage sur 200 mètres, mais pour le prix c'est un pneu excellent! 03 June 2014

Answer: 
No, you cannot use sealant to make this a tubeless set-up. It requires the use of a tube.
