From mud-slickened trails to stump-riddled runs, Continental's 29in Mountain King II UST tire with ProTection motors through muck, yet rolls fast on hardpack. Beefed-up shoulder lugs improve cornering while well-spaced, and siped, center lugs ensure braking and traction grip. The center lugs are also placed in a tilted, diamond shape that resist deflection -- to improve speed retention on fast terrain. For durability, Continental added an additional layer that encircles the tire to guard against punctures, what it calls ProTection. This protection reaches wall-to-wall to resist damage all the way around, and it does not harden or reduce the dampening characteristics of the Mountain King II's proprietary Black Chili rubber compound. This compound is a refined synthetic rubber with nano-particles to create a formula that reacts to surface objects more quickly, improving grip. These particles also form a tighter bond to improve compound strength, lengthening tread life and reducing the chances that lugs will rip and tear. The Continental Mountain King II 29in ProTection is UST and comes in two widths: 2. 2 and 2. 4in.
