CONTINENTAL DER BARON PROJEKT PROTECTION APEX TYRE BLACKCHILI 27.5 x 2.4 (995g)
Der Kaiser - Fast all-rounder for serious downhill and enduro riders.
Der Baron - Pair with the Kaiser (Baron on the front) for fast loose, or wet terrain.
Trail King - All round choice for general trail use.
We're using the highest specification BlackChili versions in Tubeless ready Protection Apex configuration. These are the revised MY2021 tyres that offer much improved Tubeless capability as well as improved ride feel.
I've always liked the Continental tyre compounds, they really do grip better and last longer, but they've been a bit off the pace for a while with poor tubeless support and overly hard sidewalls. However the recent updates have resolved this with good sidewall pliability & effective tubeless setup means that Continental tyres are back at the top of their game.
Not the cheapest option but because they're tough and the BlackChili lasts really well, you'll get favourable miles per £ compared with other options.
