The Continental X-King was developed in conjunction with the Topeak Ergon Team. The tires low rolling resistance makes it extremely fast, but its promounced lugs give it excellent trail-holding capabilities, as well. Low, ramped center knobs roll quickly but also provide good brake and acceleration traction. The larger, more aggressive side knobs provide cornering traction to make the X-King a fantastic all-arounder.
The X-King uses Continentals innovative Black Chili compound. Black Chili compound reacts to surface irregularities more effectively to provide additional grip and lengthen tread life. By the numbers, Black Chili reduces rolling resistance by 20% while adding 30% more grip and improving tread life 5% over Continentals earlier-generation tire compound.
