Continental X-King

Yesterday I got my hands on a pair of Continental X-King 2.2 Supersonic tyres.

Today I will be mounting them up and giving them a bit of a thrash at Stromlo on the Scott 24 hour teams course.

I have gone for these tyres as they have a few attributes that I am after for this weekend.

UST bead - nice tight fit on the rim
RS sidewall - a bit more rubber to allow for easy tubeless (with sealant) sealing
Skinnier bag - to pick the way through sharp rocks out the back of Stromlo
Deeper side knobs - to punch down through the deep dust that a 24 hour race produces
Low centre knobs - to facilitate fast rolling

Pics and further write up to come.......
