CONTINENTAL tire Speed King II 26 x 2.2 Race Sport Black Chili
Who knows the XC course of Offenburg, knows what the Speed King has been developed. Hard, dry surfaces where only one thing counts: Speed. The semi-slick is reduced to a minimum rolling resistance and weight. The slightly excessive outer blocks are grip in corners and thus enables to keep the speed high. The central region consists of flat, wedge-shaped lugs that hold the rolling resistance is low and provide sufficient traction on the rear wheel.
The bulky 2.2-RaceSport carcass provides reliable puncture protection under racing conditions and can be driven with low air pressures. The extreme properties of the tire come at a price: lower mileage and a reduced wet grip.
