Continental Speed King CX Tyre

Low profile center with side knobs for support. Ideal for multi terrain rides

Recommended Use: Cyclocross & Gravel


What technology does it use in its construction?

The Speed King CX comes in a Nytech Breaker reinforced 3-ply 180TPI casing, married to Continental's performance based Pure Grip compound for a consitent delivery of grip, rolling speed, durability and longevity. Available in a wider Gravel orientated 35mm, or UCI legal racing biased 32mm option.

What is the intended use?

Deriving from the Speed King, the CX specific version inherits the same effective tread pattern as its cousin. Performing well on hard and dry cross circuits and urban terrain. The semi slick diamond shaped centre tread patern rolls with ease and pace, while the course shoulder lugs bite into technical sections and deliver confidence and support.

Our verdict

The fastest in the CX/Gravel range from Continental, perfect for race or cross-commuter bikes. Ideal as a rear tyre during the drier months with something more aggressive up front, or as a pair for the most fun and fastest route to work.

Details & Technology


  • NyTech Breaker

    Nylon fabric puncture resistant layer under the tread. Offers good protection from cuts and tears while maintaining a low rolling resistance.


  • Pure Grip

    Based on activated silica compounds, this technology was originally intended as a performance level compound, but after intensive development at their German R&D facility, an advanced new compound with outstanding grip, elasticity and rolling properties was developed
