Continental Danny MacAskill Air King

Danny MacAskill's signature tyre!

- High quality tyre from Continental, developed with none other than Danny MacAskill!
- Tightly packed tread offers fantastic grip on all types of terrain, especially hard surfaces.
- Unique tread pattern falls part way between the tried and tested "block" pattern and the more angular, directional tyres found on mountain bikes. This provides an aggressively grippy type without compromising how well the tyre rolls.
- Rounded tyre profile is great for turning at speed. Many trials oriented tyres with a less rounded profile suffer from "squirming" edge knobbles, sucking away all your momentum and making the bike feel unstable.
- Constructed from the Continental's renowned Black Chili compound, offering fantastic grip without the fast wear rate usually associated with it.
- Folding Kevlar bead saves a good portion of weight over traditional steel wire beads.
-Please note this is not sold as a tubeless tyre - as such attempted fitting or use like this voids the warranty and is completely at your own risk. If you do wish to run tubeless (some customers have reported success with this), we recommend using 50% more sealant than the manufacturers recommended amount to help seal the carcass of the tyre.
- These tyres are an extremely tight fit on common 24" rims like Inspired and Spank. You may need to use a tyre lever to fit and remove, in which case we strongly recommend tough plastic tyre levers instead of metal. Damage to the bead from fitting and removal is not covered under warranty.
- Available only in 24" x 2.4" size.
- Sold singly.
- Weight: 816g

Overrated

Posted by Clifford

Compared to my Schwalbe Fat Albert it's a lot worse. Almost 200grams heavier, adding nearly half a kg to bike total weight. Traction is much much worse too. The Schwalbe is only blue grip too, long life/medium grip. I would go with a holy roller instead, much cheaper, lighter, and little to no performance difference.

Hi Clifford!
We're sorry to hear that you haven't had a great experience with your Continental tyres. It's worth playing with air pressures with them to get the best level of grip, although depending on the type of terrain you're riding you may find one type of tyre will suit you better than others. We've had good experiences personally with the Conti tyres in a variety of situations/circumstances, and found them to out-perform all others we've tried, but we appreciate that everyone's opinions are different!

Conti Quality

I've had no problems whatsoever with fitting the tyre onto a Spank Race 33 rim. The trick is to use lots of soap water on the tyre bed and you don't even need to pump it up to 60ps to sit properly. I've ridden them for half a year and they show only slight wear. I have to mention that the front took some special abuse as I failed on many up to fronts and the tyre has skidded over the wall surface a LOT. Grip is awesome in all conditions, not as grippy as a Der Kaiser BCC though. I weigh 90kgs and run 43psi. I haven't had a single puncture yet and I'm far from a smooth rider.

Hi Nico - We've found that the Conti tyres seat well on Spank rims at lower pressures than 60psi too, but the soapy water will help. Just make sure you don't get it on your rotors! Thanks for the review.

Above average tyres

Posted by Jamie

Good solid sidewalls and a grippy tyre does what it says on the tin, however saying that i don't think they are worth much more than holy rollers that i've been using previously tho as i found them hard to seat properly on my rim and they seem to be slightly misshapen where it refuses to settle down, this could well just be my experience, schwalbe's crazy bobs/table tops have been known to do have similar problems but i had no problems with either, so it's a tricky one to call. Still worth buying these tho purely for the black chilli compound.

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Jamie - thanks for your review! A few people have reported issues getting these tyres seated properly. The most effective way we have found is to put a small amount of washing up liquid around the bead, and then pump the tyres up to a high pressure. The soap lets the tyre move around a little easier to help it find its home, and then you can let some air out to your desired pressure. Hope that helps! Thanks, Flipp.
