CONTINENTAL tire Speed King II 29 x 2.2 RaceSport BlackChili
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 of rolling resistance and weight. The slightly excessive outer lugs are grip in corners and thus allows to keep the speed high. The central region consists of flat, wedge-shaped lugs that hold the rolling resistance low and provide enough traction at 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 characteristics of the tire come at a price: lower mileage and a reduced wet grip.
handmade in Germany
