Comments about Continental Race King Mountain Tire:
I have owned my Race Kings for 2 years. They are a great combination tire. If you like to run the paved trails, are a commuter or do LIGHT XC then these are the tires for you. They work well on pavement and hard pack but are not good in anything loose. These tires are not for extreme off road use!!!! These tire are very fast and have extremely low rolling resistance. I usually ride off road and use Velociraptors. I have a second wheelset with the Race Kings for on road use. I had purchased a two different sets of slick tires for road riding and found the Race Kings to be faster on road than the slicks!!!! I have tried many differnet brands and types of MTB tires and Race Kings are the fastest tires I have ever used. These tires are a little pricey but are well worth.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
