- Another tyre question. Conti X King 29er.
I’ve been running the x king 29’er on my singular gryphon and very happy with them. Reasonable levels of grip but does let go a bit in muddy conditions. Not much in the way of traction on the sides so not surprising.Posted 5 years ago
Seeing as we are hopefully coming out of winter should be a good choice. They are fast rolling.

I’ve got the 2.2/2.4 cheapo combo.
A little small for the stated width, but the 2.4 has enough volume for me on the front.
Running tubeless with stans. Overnighted them first with a tube, then they went up fine. A few psi top-ups in the first week, but basically fine. Running 22ish psi rear and 18ish psi front smooths things out and eeks some grip out of them
They are less grippy than they look.
Overall I like them as i value speed over outright grip and sketchiness is common to me whatever tyres i run!

Thanks guys. Some mixed reviews here. I’m still undecided, currently running nobby nic front and rear and happy with them but looking for something faster rolling with decent level of grip hence the question. Another option is to keep nic on front and racing ralph for the rear…Posted 5 years agogeordiemick00Member
have them as standard on my Genesis Fortitude Race rigid, put some Maxxis Beavers on for the last two months and yesterday took the beavers off and put the Conti’s back on. Personally found them really grippy in everything but deep mud. Always been a Maxxis man but keeping these, work very well for 9 months of the year. I don’t think they are black chilli compound either, but very happy with them indeedPosted 5 years ago
