More New Road, Cyclocross & Mountain Bike Tires from Continental
Conti just unveiled new mountain bike and cyclocross treads this morning, and now we’ve seen even more from the German brand.
The Speed King is a semi-slick race day tire that replaces the long ago discontinued Twister. For 2013, it’ll only be in a 26×2.2, but is likely to grow up and become a 650B and 29er model in due time. Weight is 410g.
Mountain King and X-King get a 29×2.4 size to round out their 29er size range. The Rubber Queen (aka Trail King in the US because, you know, the original name is soooo offensive) and Race King get expanded options with both Race Sport and Protection casings.
Mountain King CX is a new 32mm wide (UCI approved) cyclocross tire that mimics the MTB tread of the same name. It’s designed for really muddy terrain. Around 320g. Weights for the CycloX King, covered in the earlier post, tubular is 390g, clincher is 320g.
GP Attack and Force road tires get a face lift with new graphics and drops 10g by using slightly less rubber. GP Attack is 175g and Force is 195g…theyre designed as a front and rear set. The Comp (foreground) tires get tubular versions with Attack at 240g and Force at 260g.
Pricing on these wasn’t available immediately.
