This new mountain tire from Continental is handmade in Germany and can do anything. The Trail King has extraordinary grip due to Continental's Black Chili Compound, providing stability on even the slickest surfacs. The casing of the tire is Apex reinforced, reducing the weight of the tire while stiffening the structure and making the tire able to corner precisely. Available in black in size 26" in either 2.2 or 2.4.
The 2.2 size of the Trail King has all the same features of the 2.4 size with even lower rolling resistance.
Pair the 2.4 with a 2.2 in the rear, or if your bike will handle it, go for the 2.4 fore & aft and get ready for more traction than you thought possible.

Whats the big deal about Black Chili? Black Chili is the name for our latest tire compound which hit the market in 2007 and has fast become a hit with cyclists across the world who have marvelled at its performance beneifits. The fact is that Black Chili will improve our tires' performance in all areas. We can even make a tire to last longer, yet also grip better and roll faster! The figures are astounding; 26% lower rolling resistance, 30% higher grip, and even 5% longer mileage.
The sidewall of freeride and downhill tires is subjected to extraordinarily high loads. A rubber profile between the carcass layers ensures stability. The Apex sits on the tire core and reinforces the sides of the tire.
The tire does not impact on the rim during rough rides over rocky ground. Thetire stays upright better when riding around bends. It does not bend over the sides of the rim when subjected to transverse loads, and always stays true to the course.
