In cyclocross, you want speed on the straights and grip in the turns. Continental achieves those goals with the CycloXKing RaceSport. Short, smartly spaced center knobs roll quickly and are self-cleaning. Toward the edges, taller square knobs offer predictable cornering traction in a variety of conditions. Plus, it boasts lightweight RaceSport sidewalls and Continental's grippy Black Chili rubber compound, both of which make the XKing a great all-around tread!
