Right then folks, got a new bike that’s come shod with conti mountain king 2’s in black chilli variety. Now these are the protection versions and im noticing that they are much much stiffer than my 2.2 rubber queens that are in the racesport variety. In all honesty I expected this as im running a 2.2 MK as a rear tyre now on one bike.
So im wondering if anyone has any experiences with the 2.4 mk2’s against the rq 2.2’s? only reason I ask is the MK’s were especially slippery yesterday on wet cobbles where as I would have had grip with the rq’s I don’t know if its just because they are stiffer though and hence need to be run at lower pressures. Is it worth sticking with them for the bigger carcas (i havnt actually measured them yet btw, might not be a lot in it) or should i swap them out for the rq's
