Continental Rubber Queen Tyre

The Queen of Knobbly Tyres

This sporty Queen is great value for money to tune your Freeride, All Mountain or Enduro bike.

"The heavily siped paddle style centre tread is rampled just enough to keep it rolling better than you might expect, but the open spaces means it refuses to clog..there's enough flat surface to hook up well on rocks and harder trails..multi shaped shoulder knobs take the traction over as far as you dare to lean..."

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 61 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by great treat, terrible sides Bought this at a good price from CRC because I wanted something good and grippy especially on slippy hard paths and roads as well as everywhere else. I found them excellent in this respect and very reliable and quite quick. UNTIL after what i consider to be not a very great period of use, i heard a funny noise, saw a black flap on the side of the tyre and before I came to a full stop, a massive blow out as the side wall of the tyre just failed completely. I had noticed a little bit of wear on the wall, but it didnt look threatening, and can hardly believe there could be catastrophic failure when the tyre was relatively new and had never been used in harsh conditions. The tread looked almost like new and could have gone on for years. 22 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Superb grip in all weather After trying a few tyres (from Specialized & Continental) these are easily the best that i've used. The grip is amazing in the wet going through mud and across slippery wet chalk rock, and grip is better than the summer tyres I've used in dry conditions. On the road they are quiet and have surprisingly low rolling resistance. 15 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by On the pricey end but sticky on rocks and predictable on roots, can manage with mud. Got few rides and the side wall already damaged on some stone - guess what one can expect when running on low pressure but otherwise wouldn't work well on roots and rocks. Running 2.2", Folding Bead, but it feels huge (broad), on the back. Will pump it up to higher pressure and see if the scratch - few stitches got damaged on the wall, will distort the tire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by great tyres Have been riding the 2.4s for last two seasons whilst living in the south of france. They are great for the dry hardpack trails in the woods round here giving loads of grip. I can lean right into the corners and feeel the tread on the outside biting. Have good grip on the stoney fire roads as well (these aren't like in the Uk, in France they have loose rocks up to 20cm all over the place!). I used to run a nobby nick up front but I was getting at least one puncture every time I rode as they were so thin. These are a lot thicker and stronger and just look beefy in the 2.4s. If you stand the tyre up by itself it doesnt fold in half like the nobby nicks did. Last season I rarely got punctures with these except when riding in an area with big thorns everywhere. A couple of pinches here and there but nothing major. Now I ride with thicker inner tubes and have had no problems at all this season! The 2.4s are terrible in wet mud and just slide everywhere with no grip. You would be better off with a tinner tyre like a panracer or something for winter riding in the UK. I rode these at an endurance event in the UK over the winter and I didn't have time to change to thinner tyres. I regretted it as soon as I hit the first muddy patch in the field! Slding al lover the place and had to walk most of it. They don't like to shed the mud either so I had to stop and scrape it off every 1km or so. 05 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great grip I've never had anything else but stock tyres on my ride. Very wet winter and mud had my stock tyres failing and I was coming off every ride. The grid and bite in these tyres is amazing. I stopped falling off and enjoyed my wet, muddy winter rides again. 05 May 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 Wide and grippy butPoor quality Fitted this tyre on the front of my bike as I wanted something wide and grippy. It does both very well but the side walls have started to split after no more than 40 miles ridding. 26 April 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Buena rueda Delantera Excelente tracción para enduro, si bien, se raja con mucha facilidad y como rueda trasera ha rebentado ya en dos ocasiones. 16 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality tyre So much volume for a 2.2.......................... 14 March 2014

No, they are not tubeless ready. It's a standard tyre that requires a tube to function properly.

Answer: 
There are two generic types of tyres: wired bead and kevlar (foldable) bead.
1. The wire bead is a standard tyre- just like we know it- it is big and you can't do anything with it apart from carrying the way it is being sold.
2. The kevlar (foldable) bead is the same tyre that simply uses kevlar fibres instead of wire so it is foldable. You can flatten it and roll it to save space so you can take it with you in your bag.

The pros are obvious but it is also good to note that from my own experience the foldable tyres react (here: withstand) numerous puncture repairs as the bead does not tend to get ruined. The wired bead tends to split where the wires get pulled apart. They are also much better with clinger rims- they bead in better.

Answer: 
The wire bead means that the tyre cannot be folded. The Folding bead means the tyre can be fold and brought on a ride as a spare and can be stored in a back jersey pocket.

Answer: 
This tyre can fit to an Approx maximum Rim Internal Width of 25mm so in effect any of this rims will be sufficient.

However to guarantee the optimal tyre volume the Inferno 29 would be the advised option.

Answers

Answer: 
These tyres are the Non-BlackChili variant which are nowhere near as soft as 42a.

The BlackChili version is around a 42a compound (Continental do not list their compounds in a numeral sense).
