Suprisingly grippy.

PostedMarch 14, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
The 2.4" carcass is HUGE! The tyre has an old school block tread pattern that rolls really quickly, but also grips really well. It's not great in claggy mud, but on drier, rocky trails this tyre excels. The tyre is light and well built.
Will it make you ride faster? Probably not.
But, is it a good tyre? Definitely!

Great tyres for winter xc

PostedJanuary 28, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
These have held up well on the first few rides. Good winter tyres until the race kings come back in the summer.
Make the mud much easier. Would highly recommend for winter tyres or grippy summer rubber.

Multiple sidewall leaks!

PostedMay 6, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: Poor quality
I bought 2 of these to go on a carbon hardtail I am building. I wanted to run tubeless so put them on a pair of Stan's No Tubes Arch EX rims. when I inflated the rear it developed multiple pinhole leaks in the sidewalls. I put the sealant in and it managed to solve the problem - but this isn't acceptable. Not much I can do about it now as I have used the sealant, but I'm very unimpressed with Continental

Capable performer

PostedJuly 13, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
I ride a hardtail XC on all types of terrains but mostly dry hardpack and loose over hard. The X Kings are relatively light and quite fast. Very grippy on tarmac and hardpack, a little less so on the loose where caution must be exercised when cornering. I've covered close to 300 miles so far and they look brand new. They seem durable and puncture resistant. Unlike the skinny contis I've had in the past these are fatter - a proper 2.2 - and a lot more comfortable. The X Kings do not excel in any particular category but are very capable in most and seem long lasting. For the price so far they're tops.
