A Worthy Contender
- I've put it through the wringer
Over the years I have tried a lot of different tires from different manufacturers and in the end I typically end up back on Maxxis tires. I've always liked the Black Chili compound from Continental but I've never really been wowed by their tread designs or casing options. That being said, Continental has gone back to the drawing board and has dramatically improved their product range. This newest version of the Der Baron Projekt proves that Continental has their aim set high. The new Apex casing is super durable and impressively light-weight compared with other casings that are equally durable. I find the casing of this tire to be stiff but that ensures that the tire doesn't fold under hard cornering. After playing around with pressures I found 23 psi worked best for me and allowed tons of traction while still being supportive while cornering. The Black Chili rubber offers tons of traction and grips well in many different conditions. Overall, I think this new Der Baron Projekt is a big leap forward for Continental and is a great tire for anyone looking for tons of traction paired with a durable casing.
