CONTINENTAL tires Cross King 27.5 | 650B x 2.30 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 necessary grip off-road. This created the versatile Cross-King, which has been equipped with all the technical refinements of the company Continental 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 the rim and the tire prevents air loss if the tire is to be driven tubeless.
Handmade in Germany
These tires are among the highest quality produced by Continental. They are sewn by hand in the Korbach factory and set special standards in workmanship and quality.
At Conti, BlackChili means above all that grip, rolling resistance and durability are combined at a level that one can almost believe in magic. Continental simply uses all of the 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 mixture ensure more performance and safety.
Continental tires are made 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. The improved puncture protection is achieved through a continuous additional layer, which 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 ProTection carcass are best suited for tubeless mounting with sealing milk. The additional material minimizes the formation of micropores and thus speeds up sealing enormously.
