Continental's Der Baron Project 27.5in Tire is a favorite of aggressive trail and all-mountain riders ridding across everything from loose, blown-out summer trails to wet rocks and mud-caked stretches after a recent rainfall. Continental gives you the ability to fine-tune its overall grip and compliance over especially rough sections of trail with either 2.4 or 2.6-inch widths.
Choose the 2.4-inch width if you prefer a bit faster rolling without sacrificing high levels of grip or go with the 2.6-inch width if you have the frame clearance and desire enhanced levels of traction for plunging into the rockiest, roughest stretches of terrain. Both are tubeless-ready, so you can gain optimal traction and compliance while running lower pressures, as well as feel a bit more relief on rocky trails, due to the self-sealing reassurance that tubeless provides.
The Der Baron Project Tire features four plies of 240 TPI under well-spaced, knobby tread that clears the muck and digs aggressively into trail conditions ranging from loose and drifty to sticky, mud-caked surfaces. Continental's BlackChili compound offers heightened levels of grip without being slow to roll, which is something that's plagued grippier tires on the market for quite some time. BlackChili won't wear out prematurely, meaning you won't have to swap out tires after a month or two of hard riding. Additionally, you'll find Continental's Protection APEX layer for continuous reinforcement beneath the tread and sidewall, so you won't have to worry about slits and punctures while pummeling over rocks and roots.
