Conti Trail king 2.2 vs 2.4, huge difference
I've been running a Conti Trail King in 2.4 with the Apex sidewalls for a little while now. Love the tire so wanted to throw one onto a second bike. I didn't want quite the volume as the 2.4 so went with a 2.2 Protection version. Got the tire today and mounted it up. This thing is tiny small. It looks like a 2.0 with really small volume.
What gives? How can these two tires be so different in size? Did the tire carcas get smaller when they went to Protection version?
I'm actually having second thoughts keeping it. My Specialized Captain in 2.2 is much bigger as is the Eakar in 2.3, not so much diff in width but more so in volume.
I'll post a pic in a few.
