I normally don’t write reviews, but Der Kaiser has amazing grip. Way more grip than the Maxxis Minion DHR 2 I was running before. And not just the grip improvement you get when going from an old tire to a new one. This Der Kaiser has me cleaning techy, chunky, and steep climbs way more often and way easier, and it has me cornering better and faster. Ride mostly throughout Utah on loose over hard pack and rocky. Highly recommend!! (Can’t speak to the durability because have only had them a few months.)

I'm a road cyclist with kids whose interest made me buy a hardtail to ride trails with them. A cut sidewall on the Maxxis that came on my bike sent me to my LBS over here in the Middle East to get a replacement; I'd always balked at the price of buying tires using black chili compound, but the grip, as you pointed out, is out of this world. I don't generally write reviews, but now, when my road tires wear out, I'm going to swap my Schwalbes for Contis. Simply the best rubber compound I've ever ridden.

I have been running these for about a year now. The casing seems similar to the EXO+ casing from Maxxis, durability-wise. The black chili compound has tenacious grip in all conditions and lasts for a very long time. A side note: the 2.4" casing on this tire is slightly wider than a 2.5" Maxxis wide trail (WT) casing.

Heavy, weak sidewalls.
I replaced these as soon as I possibly could on my Fuel EX8, they were a bit more beefy than necessary, though they didn't last well at all as the sidewalls were getting pinch holes within the month.
