Continental Mountain King III PureGrip ShieldWall 27.5-Inch Folding Tyre

This isn't just an update, the King of the mountain has been taken back to the drawing board. The new tread pattern increases grip in varied conditions while the middle lugs are angled perfectly for acceleration and speed. The deep seated outer lugs aid stability and flowing along the trail. The wide spacing between lugs also allows the tyre to bite into loose soil and loam easily.

The sidewalls have been re-molded completely, incorporating Continental's new Tubeless Ready concept, which is seamlessly integrated in the Mountain King's new carcass. With its new design of core and sidewall, the tyre seals perfectly against the rim.

The PureGrip compound for balances high grip and tyre longevity, while the ShieldWall System combines high puncture protection with low resistance rolling.
