CONTINENTAL Tire Cross King 27.5 | 650B x 2.20 BlackChili Protection
The Cross King was developed together with the Topeak Ergon Racing team. The aim was to be able to offer a tire that rolls well and achieves the grip required off-road. This resulted in the versatile Cross-King, which was equipped with all the technical finesse of the Continental company and is equally suitable for dry and wet weather.
The Cross King starts the 2018 season with a modified profile and a revised sidewall. Above all, a better interaction between rim and tire prevents air loss if the tire is to be used tubeless.
Made in Germany
These tires are among the highest quality products from Continental. They are manufactured in the Korbach factory and set special standards in processing and quality.
Black Chili Compound
At Conti, BlackChili means above all that grip, rolling resistance and durability are combined at a level that makes you almost believe in magic. Continental simply uses the very latest and best technologies. Polymers, soot particles and fillers optimized down to the nano range guarantee the unique performance of the BlackChili compound. It revolutionized the basic conflict between grip and rolling resistance. Approx. 30% more grip and a 26% improved rolling resistance compared to the silica compound ensure better performance and safety.
Continental tires consist entirely of this high-quality rubber compound. Thus, the tires can be worn down to the carcass without losing the first-class properties of the rubber!
The ProTection technology gives the tires a perfect mix of smooth running, grip and puncture protection. It achieves improved puncture protection through a continuous additional layer that increases resistance to injuries of all kinds. However, this does not reduce the good running properties of Conti tires. Another great feature is the tubeless ready function. Thanks to the reinforcement, tires with a ProTection carcass are best suited for tubeless assembly with sealing milk. The additional material minimizes the formation of micropores and thus speeds up sealing immensely.
