    35-40 psi (170lbs) on the rear – never ran em up front.

    all contis seem to be rated at that. I run mine (speed kings and gravities) at 35 – 50 psi. I do find they need higher pressures than some tyres or else they squirm

    Yeah – as above really. You do ping off rocks a bit but the traction still seems ok and the rolling resistance is great 🙂

    Rode the Builth merida with them at around 35psi seemed to grip well but did need to mince the rocky sections and the road bit sucked.

    Will pop a bit more in and go from there!

    What are they like up front, one on the back was a great little tyre.

    Nice – but they seem to wear very quickly.

    They do squirm at low pressures, firmness is a neccessity I find.

    Would you recommend similar pressures for the Mountain King 2.2s? I’m about to put mine on for the Dyfi.

    Just doing some research into the tyres on my Whyte (XC racing on Sunday for the 1st time in years-please excuse my geekness :oops:)

    It’s got 2.1 speed kings on which i keep pintch flatting, when i googled them and looked at the Conti site there recomended to run 50psi!!!

    Anyone actually run them that firm? What pressures do peole run in them?

    I ran mine at 40 psi last summer, im a big lad and not very subtle…in 4 months the rear was a slick but the front was fine.
