Mountain King II Protection
Mountain King II RaceSport Continental Mountain King II
The perfect choice for those not requiring larger volume, but demanding aggressive traction with relatively low rolling resistance and lighter weight.
The 2.2 Mountain King
does well virtually everywhere – in cross country races, marathons, or all day trail rides. It is slightly lighter than its bigger brother without sacrificing its outstanding qualities.
The revised tread design now performs much better in harder, dryer conditions and Black Chili Compound delivers excellent wet performance as well.
The Mountain King has been completely overhauled for 2011. Those who desire a bit more meat for particularly difficult sections choose the Mountain King in 2.4
. Improving on what was excellent soft/loose grip, and now delivering much better all-around performance.
By beefing-up the shoulder lugs, and creating more void toward the center lugs – corning has become telepathic. The ProTection versions now offer significantly improved puncture protection without the unwelcome side effect of added weight.
The Protection version with a continous flag design is particularly robust and impervious to damage or the entering of foreign objects.
The RaceSport version guarantees necessary protection while having a consistent light construction.
UST is the tubeless version of the Mountain King II.
