Continental Danny MacAskill Air King

Danny MacAskill's signature tyre is now finally available!

- 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.
- Available only in 24" x 2.4" size.
- Sold singly.
- Weight: 816g

Questions

Harry

How come these tyres are so expensive? Is there a noticeable difference between these and the holy rollers? Thanks!

Posted by Harry on 07/05/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 07/05/2014

Hi Harry - there are a few reasons for this. They are made from Continental's hi-tech Black Chili compound which allows for a super grippy tyre that doesn't wear down too fast. They also feature a Kevlar bead, saving weight over a traditional steel wire bead but makes the tyre more expensive as a result. Being individually hand-made in Germany in relatively low numbers also increases cost over a tyre that is mass-produced in Taiwan. Holy Rollers are good tyres and are perfect for many riders, but Continental have made these to provide the best tyre possible to those looking for ultimate performance. Hope that helps! Thanks, Flipp.

Daniel

hi, is that carbon-like sidewall just decorative or is it reinforced in some way? I'm looking for something that would withstand more curb slides than a holy roller..

Posted by Daniel on 23/05/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 27/05/2014

Hi Daniel - thanks for your question. The woven appearance is purely cosmetic, though these tyres have much thicker sidewalls than the Holy Rollers which will have exactly the effect you want. Thanks, Flipp.

Hello, I ride the Inspired Skye Orange, with the Continental Danny Macaskill tyres and I run them with Kenda Unboxed 24" tubes. I'm a big fan of Danny. I'm just wondering if you know what tire pressure Danny uses on both wheels. I actually ride the same style. If not, what's prefered to my tube and tires? Thanks alot.

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/08/2014

Hi Johan - thanks for your question. We don't know exactly what tyre pressure Danny runs, though they're clearly pretty firm. The best option is just to run them at a pressure that is comfortable for you. If you get punctures or feel you roll too slowly then a little more pressure, and if you roll too fast or jar your wrists a lot then a little less. Around 30-40psi would be a good place to start for your style of riding. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Felix

Hi! How would you compare the compound of these tires to the ST from Maxxis and the Try-All compound? I was running underwater and crashed badly because my Maxxis with 60A compound were horrible in those conditions, and my friend was riding his Try-All Stiky light and Shift tires as it was dry! Thanks

Posted by Felix on 17/10/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 20/10/2014

Hi - The Maxxis ST and Try-All compounds are the same, and this tyre is a small amount harder, but it is still very grippy. Definitely better than the 60A Maxxis. We have a few customers using them for 'pure' trials so far and they have been veyr happy with them! Thanks.

Johan

Hello! Do you know what tyre pressure Ali C. runs, in both wheels, thanks.

Posted by Johan on 27/10/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 28/10/2014

Hi Johan - Ali just popped in to say hi, and he says he's quite fussy about tyre pressures and runs precisely 42psi! Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Alberto

Hi! I've a Onza Zoot 24" whit 24x2.30 original tyre, and I wanted to know if this continental fits on it! Is it a little larger? I want more grip and doing better manuals. Thanks!

Posted by Alberto on 08/08/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 10/08/2015

Hi Alberto - thanks for your question. Yes, you would be able to fit this tyre in that frame with no problems. These tyres use a much grippier compound than the tyres fitted as standard to the Zoot bike, so that should help you there! Thanks, Flipp.

Jules

Hello ! I would like to buy this Continental tyres with the spank subrosa rims, what is thes less pressure allowed to keep the tyre right in the rim, because the rim is not very large, and the tyre is very large, and it will cause problem ?¿? Thanks, Jules ;)

Posted by Jules on 22/02/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 22/02/2016

Hi Jules - If you use much less than 25psi I think you would start to get a lot of tyre fold/roll, and it would also increase the chances of you getting pinch punctures when landing onto harsher edges. Most people tend to run 30-40psi and don't seem to have any problems. Thanks, Mark

Rokas J

Hi there, just curious, if I were to buy these rims: http://www.odysseybmx.com/catalog/rims/hazard-lite/ would they fit this tyre? double checking because there might be some thing i've missed considering it's a 'bmx' rim. Thanks in advance!

Posted by Rokas J on 25/05/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 26/05/2016

Hi Rokas - As long as you have the 24" Hazard Lite rims then there's no problem running the Continental tyres on them. Thanks, Mark

Ruaraidh

i just bought these and i was wondering What size inner tubes do danny and ali c ride

Posted by Ruaraidh on 26/06/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 27/06/2016

Hi Ruaraidh - Danny and Ali tend to use fairly standard 24" innertubes in their tyres. Tubes like either the Jitsie Light or Schwalbe Downhill tubes would be a good option as they've got good volume (so the tube walls don't have to stretch too much to fill the tyre), and are made of a good material so are more supple/flexible which reduces the chances of pinch flats. Thanks, Mark

Coy White

Time for a new set of rubbers but I'm on the hex... Is there anything you've heard about these possibly becoming available for 26"? I'm probably going to grab another set of holy rollers this time but I've had my fingers crossed for so long on these haha, kudos on the new site!

Posted by Coy White on 23/04/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 24/04/2017

Hi Coy - Thanks for the comment, we're glad you like the new site! Unfortunately, I don't see these becoming available in 26", sorry. Continental had to have a lot of pushing to make these more widely available for 24" bikes, so with the lack of demand for 26" bikes I don't see it happening. Sorry I can't be more help! Thanks, Mark

Jordan Vasey

Do the continental tyres come as a set ( front back )? or do I need to buy them both separately for front and back?

Posted by Jordan Vasey on 22/10/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 23/10/2017

Hi Jordan - These tyres are sold individually, not as a pair. Thanks, Mark

Daniel Gaworski

hi, when do you expect to have more Continental Danny tyres?

Posted by Daniel Gaworski on 15/11/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 15/11/2016

Hi Daniel - Unfortunately we have no information when they will be available again, sorry! We are hoping some time in December but there is no confirmation. Thanks, Mark

Above average tyres

Posted by Jamie on 20/06/2015

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 on 22/06/2015

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.

Conti Quality

Posted by Nico on 14/04/2017

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.

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/04/2017

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.
