Continental Cross King CX Racesport 700c Folding Tyre

At home on a huge range of terrain

Continental's cross & heavy duty touring tyre based on the award winning Cross-King MTB tyre pattern.

Continental have developed a tread pattern that is studded enough to work well in muddy conditions, yet roll like a semi slick in a straight line. Ask countless MTB XC racers and they'll tell you that the Cross King CX is fast!

The tall shoulder lugs do provide great bite in the loose and wet corners and of course, the BlackChili & PureGrip compounds boost grip in all situations whether they be hard & dry, cold & wet, roots, off-cambers, grass or stone. When the tyre deforms under impact with the ground, the supple 180 tpi polyamde casing absorbs the shock and propels you forward.

Features:

  • Fast all-rounder for cross racers
  • UCI legal 32mm race option
  • RaceSport model - Handmade in Germany

Technology:

 

RaceSport - Uncompromisingly designed for use in mountain bike racing: the RaceSport carcass combines logical light construction and noticeably better protection against flat tyres at the very highest level. Together with professional mountain bikers, Continental have created the perfect platform for competition tyres. Hand produced in Germany, they offer a 30% better protection against flat tyres than the previous lightweight option (Supersonic series). The construction makes the difference, particularly fine and high-grade nylon fabric with an expensive, protective rubber lining and a universal bead. Together with the legendary BlackChili Compound, this is the ultimate combination for XC racing and marathon/endurance events.

BlackChili - BlackChili combines the very latest polymers with specially developed carbon black particles and filler materials. Fitted to a bicycle, tyres with BlackChili give riders supreme confidence whether they're tumbling downhill on a mountain bike or time-trialling on a road bike. Tyres with BlackChili compound provide a truly unprecedented level of performance. Compared to Activated Silica Compound - Continental's previous best performer - BlackChili tyres have 30% higher grip, 26% less rolling resistance, and 5% increase in mileage.
