Continental Mountain King II 29" Mountain Bike Tire
The King is Dead. Long live the King! Continental overhauled the original Mountain King in 2011 and crowned its successor, Mountain King II. The 29" version is 2.4" wide, putting a bit of extra meat between you and the trail. You get sweet all-around performance that'll keep you upright through a wide variety of trail conditions.
Great all-around performance in a variety of conditions
Comments about Continental Mountain King II 29" Mountain Bike Tire:
Purchased it assuming the specs/description that 2.4 width was accurate. This is the 29 x 2.2, basic level foldable version, Conti-destination #0100517 (old # 0100461). From website: weight 760g, 3 ply/84 TPI. I'm retuning the tire, and would recommend Nashbar item #CO-MK29, Mountain King II 29er; 29 x 2.2 casing with 4 ply/240 TPI with black chili compound, & supposedly tubeless compatible. Most likely this basic version is a good all-condition tire that I was stoked to try, but it is NOT 2.4 as described, and not even worth the advertised sale price.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
