Tire Options

I am currently using a set of Continental Trail King 2.2’s, and primarily ride Whopper/ Fight. I find these are above average for these areas, but I am planning on racing an XC event or two, and think these bad boys will be a little too beefy for that. Any suggestions on a smaller, more XC oriented tire that I could purchase as a secondary option for the few times I choose to race???

Any help would be greatly appreciated. FYI, I ride a Norco Faze 2…

The Continental X-King or Race King would both be excellent tires in the 2.2 size for XC racing. Especially if you got the ProTection or RaceSport models with BlackChili compound, those are sweet.
