The Continental Mountain King is a tire legendary in MTB circles for its phenomenal handling in muddy conditions. In fact, it was doing so well that the guys in Germany decided "hey, let's make a 'cross tire!", and they did. And it is good. The Continental Mountain King II Cyclocross tire is one of the best handling race tires we've ever seen. Thanks to its deep profile, the Mountain King digs deep to get you a sturdy footing in even the slushiest ground, and the shoulder lugs are designed to optimize cornering in all conditions. You'd be hard pressed to find a better cyclocross tire anywhere.
