The King of the XC World Cup!
Those who know the XC track at Offenburg know why the SpeedKing was developed.
Hard, dry terrain where only one thing counts: Speed.
The semi slick profile offers minimal rolling resistance and weight. The lightly
raised outer lugs provide enough grip to maintain good speeds when cornering and
the centre area is made up of flat, wedge-shaped lugs which whilst keeping the
rolling resistance low, still provide drive when needed.
The Continental Speed King 2.2 RaceSport Clincher Tires carcass offers reliable
puncture protection when racing and can be ridden with lower air pressure.
The extreme properties of this tire have their price: Lower mileage and a
limited wet grip – a pedigreed racer – Handmade in Germany!
BlackChili Compound - higher grip, longer mileage, lower rolling resistance! -
It's all about how you mix it! The fastest and safest tires in competition.
RaceSport - Light, quick, safe. -
Light construction and
noticeably better protection against flat tires at the very highest level.
