There is more to a tire than knobs. The Continental Race King 29 does its majik not only with the low, finely-gritted tread bars, but with the large, supple casing and round profile. While this is a tire for big wheels, it doesn't ride like a big tire, which is to say, it doesn't feel slow. It feels responsive.Go up, or down, and it grips. The transition to turning is smooth. Lean on the tire for a long-radius turn and it is still gripping as well as it did while riding a straight line. A word of warning. Early iterations of this tire were made on an under-sized mold. The result is a tire that is closer to 1.9" than the 2.2" intended. Going forward, the tire has been re-done and is now a true 2.2".The Continental Race King 29 has a three-ply wrap of 60 thread per inch casing material for a 180tpi casing and is foldable. The Continental Race King ProTection 29 has a four-ply wrap of 60 thread per inch casing material for a 240tpi casing. The recommended tire pressure is 50psi, with a max pressure of 65psi. The ETRTO size is 55-663 and the tire size is 29 x 2.2" or 29 x 2.0". The tread and casing is black.
