I'd like to pick up a spare pair of tires, and I love the Race King SuperSonic for the local trails. I'm after the SuperSonic Black Chili 26 x 2.2. Any advice? Someone got a brand new pair that they wanna sell? Know of a shop with some stock and decent prices?

Thanks,

Jacques

Bike24 always have a good selection of tyres
http://www.bike24.com/1.php?content=8;n ... id=4;pgc=0

That lists the 26x2.2 (RaceSport is the SuperSonic version)

Shipping is probably a little prohibitive. I'm in Australia and I just load up on a bit of stuff to spread it out. Few pairs of tyres, chains/cassettes/brake pads, the odd fancy weight weenie part.

RaceSport is not exactly Supersonic, RaceSport has thicker sidewalls. But they both share Black Chilli rubber. My experience with both at size 26" 2.2 was that due to thinner sidewall, Supersonic tires were more balloony.

My understanding was that the SuperSonic is no longer produced and the RaceSport is the replacement in the lineup. SuperSonic didn't seal well tubeless so they changed it to better suit the needs of the market.

http://www.conti-online.com/www/bicycle ... ng_en.html (no supersonic listed)

I'm sure SuperSonics are out there as new old stock though. Maybe set up an automatic ebay search.

You are correct, grover. And a simple ebay search lists many active Race King Supersonic sellers.

Yup. I found the ones on ebay. I was just asking around for another possible source.

Thanks guys.

Hi Jaker, I may have some to spare. I stocked a few pairs of these, in different sizes before I went tubular. I still have them because I still have clincher wheelsets too. PM me.
