Model/Year: 2016

Pros: Um, whats rolling resistance? There is none. Set a PR, on a CLIMB, by 2mins. Went from 10:09 to 8:01. Like for real? Yes, for real. Had a kenda nevegal 2.1, which now I realize is complete trash. Im riding the Conti TrailKing 2.4 Black Chili with Protection sidewalls on the front. The back needs replacing, but currently have a kenda honey badger 2.2. Im telling yall, this tire is exactly as described on the downhill, but climbing is way better. Ive had the kendas and WTB velociraptors, and these roll like drag slicks but grip like monster truck tires. Best purchase Ive made

Cons: Have no idea how long theyll last. Still have tabs on them after 10 miles, which isnt anything at all, but Ive rrad some bad reviews saying theyve broken off after one ride. Must be the cheaper version made in India. Not the German made black chili compound with protection. Ran them about 30 psi? May go a tad lower next time

Recommendation: Buy the dern things. Dont talk yourself out of it because of the price. Well, well worth it

Model/Year: 2014 Continental Trail King 2.4 Protection

Pros: All-round traction, predictable transition to cornering knobs. Fast rolling for such a large tire. Long wearing. "Protection" includes reinforced lower sidewalls that adds pitch flat resistance as well as reducing side wall wallowing at low pressure.

Cons: I have had considerable trouble getting the bead to seat tubeless--- partly due to the stiffened "protection" sidewalls fighting the rim profile, so not necessarily that fault of the tire

Recommendation: I have tried many tires; and now am well satisfied with these Continentals.
