    Continental Race King Supersonic 2.0 weight

    Not sure if this is already posted on site, but thought this might be helpful. I just received two new tires today and thought I'd weigh before mounting them.

    This is a Continental Race King Supersonic 2.0. This is not the protection version.

    Weight by my scale: 397g

    Plan is to run the Nevegal up front and RK on back. They're both skinnier than I anticipated and it makes me a bit nervous. Sometimes I'm not sure mail order is worth the money it saves me. We'll see.

    I normally run 2.2-2.35 up front and various skinnier tires in rear.

    Seems kinda silly to run a heavy tire like a Nevegal up front with the RK in the Rear.

    I am not experienced enough to know one way or the other, but the consensus on these forums is running a fat, aggressive tire up front and a light, fast roller in the rear is a good all-around solution.

    I want to eventually go tubeless, but this is the tubed version.

    No offense, but why not run the Race King Supersonic 2.2? It's not much heavier, and is just an incredibly great tire.

    Maybe I'll try that next time. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Sounds like you got a light one there, they usually run heavier than that, approx 430g.
    were both tires the same low weight or what?
    Now that you've run them whats your verdict on these tires?
