    no black chilli yet for conti 29ers?

    is there anyone in the know out there regarding Conti making the trail king, mtn king, etc, in the coveted black chilli compound for 29er tires? it doesn't look like it on their website, which is kinda shocking. what gives Conti?

    Would you mind providing a link? The only info I can find on their website says it isn't available. Here's where I'm looking:

    I wonder if the sizing will be more accurate with the German made tires?

    I bought an X-King 29x2.2 ProTection w/ Black Chili last week in Little Rock, AR. The same store had Race King 29 w/ black chili.

    Nope I was excited to get a pair of RaceKing 2.2 Protection(Chili) and they're 2.02" wide according to my digital caliper. Since they were mounted tubeless already I went ahead and rode them a few times. Sticky, fast tires but the small volume made me run more pressure than I'm used to and I never could deal with it For a XC rider they'd be great tires but I ride more chunk and play a lot so volume is important to me.
