I am in the market for some new tires and have narrowed it down to the new conti x kings but I need some advice for my application. I ride a full carbon gary fischer hi fi with 5 inches of travel front and rear with UST wheels. I live in the rocky mountains and am primarily a trail rider but am venturing into endurance racing hence my trouble deciding. The UST bead and low weight of the racesports are attractive but flatting in the middle of a 65 mile race is not. This is why I am considering the protection version.

I am currently running 2.1 conti explorer front and 2.1 wtb exiwolf rear.
As far as 2.2 vs 2.4, what are the advantages/disadvantages to the larger volume 2.4?
Any info is greatly appreciated, thanks.

I have the 2.4 Racesports and they have been working great so far. Not a lot of miles on them yet though. Be sure to check here for a little info.

Some have had issues getting them to seal up but mine worked without a hitch and have not lost air at all (using stan's sealant.) Traction has been great and predictable.
