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

Questions

Hi, is this tyres are tubeless compatible? I can't find any answer on the internet. I just bought a pair of these, but the slime sealant's liquid and the air slowly leaking through the sidewall.

Hi - Technically they are not advertised as tubeless compatible, but some people seem to have been able to manage it. Thanks,

Conti Quality

Posted by Nico

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.
