A large volume tire that crawls over nasty roots and rolls through boulder strewn trails, Continental's 2. 4 inch-wide, tubeless ready compatible Trail King 26in Tire is perfect for long-travel, all-mountain applications. A Black Chili rubber compound on the tread, with carbon black rubber sidewalls adds to this tires versatility by providing extra grip. The Black Chili compound is a rubber compound milled down to nano-particles and then formed back into treads. The nano-sized rubber flecks -- think of a soccer ball on the face of the earth -- apply more rubber to the trail in the same area as regular tires. Continental claims 30% increased adhesion, 26% lower rolling resistance, and 5% improved mileage. The interior is lined with a thin layer of rubber to prevent air bleed over time, and Continental's APEX sidewall design means a strip of additional material above the bead helps stiffen the sidewall. This increases stability and control in hard turns and across off-camber terrain. The extra sidewall support also means slightly lower tire pressures are needed without worrying about burping and loss of control. The 3-ply casing has a combined 180 tpi and is overlapped twice underneath the tread for added puncture protection. The Continental Trail King is compatible with tubeless wheel systems, though it can be used with a tube as well. It has a foldable Kevlar bead, and is available in 2. 4in width only.
