    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Continental X-King ProTection 29er Foldable Tire - 29 x 2.2 / 29 x 2.4 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from x-king lives up to hype so far Using as a front tire for mostly fire roads & single track -- hard pack dirt, sand & rocky terrain. Has performed well so far and was easy to install with Stan's no tube sealant.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Black Chili compound is not durable I purchased the 29x2.2 X-king Protection for use as a front tire and was initially happy with the traction and low rolling resistance. However, after only about 100 miles I started to notice that the knobs were tearing and large chunks are coming off. The trails I ride in San Diego aren't particularly hard on tires, so I was shocked to see such damage so quickly. As the knobs became damaged traction has decreased. I now have about 250 miles on the tires and they look worse and worse after every ride. I will be taking this tire back in hopes that REI will take care of me. I wonder if this problem is specific to the Black Chili compound conti uses or if all of the X-kings have this problem? To give you an idea of how slowly I wore out my last front tire, I had a Specialized Ground Control 29x2.1 S-works (which is their light weight version) and it lasted me about a year of consistent riding with plenty of tread left when I cut the sidewall on a shard of glass. This included 3 months of riding in the front range in Denver, CO area which is incredibly rocky. Background: I ran the X-king at 24-25 psi tubeless with stan's sealant on stan's rims. I am 150lbs 5'10" and race competitively.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for Now First you must not use this this tire as a front one .. The sizing is wrong it is not a 2.2 if you need a larger tire order the 2.4 it will be more up to 2.2. This tire was a bit hard to mount tubeless compared the Specialized Renegade control i had previously..This is mounted on a WTB frequency i19 29er. Has a rear tire traction is really good I have no slips in steep climbs and puncture protection for now is really good.. like others have mention though it seems like the tire as really a soft compound. I have not ride it that much and it melts really fast.. Please be patient for tubeless setup the tire took a couple of rides to place itself with the sealant..
