Worthy of the trail.

Sneak away from your daily desk duties for a revitalizing hour of barreling through all-mountain switchbacks and cleaning epic enduro drops on the Continental Der Baron Projekt 27.5in Tire. It's bombproof durability and beefy knobs give you the confidence to shred and the peace of mind that you'll arrive back at the office in time for that next meeting, with energy to spare and a new outlook on the day's projects.

Worthy of royal trappings in both name and design, the Der Baron Projekt reigns over the trails with a focus on speed that comes courtesy of its fast-rolling, multi-compound BlackChili composition. This multi-layer rubber compound maintains speed on tacky trails while providing enough grip that you can feel the ground underneath you, and is designed to wear slowly and perform consistently throughout its lifespan. The casing comprises several luxuriously high-TPI layers, including four plies of supple 240 TPI under the well-spaced, knobby tread and three plies of 180 TPI in the sidewall. As a final touch, the ProTection Apex layer provides protection against time devouring punctures as you blast down loose, debris-filled lines.

  • Versatile tire for big lines and fast runs

Good for mud, modereate puncture resist.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

not the best puncture resistance, but good, grip ok, but better for mud, not the best for dry, loose or rocky terrain, the rolling resistance ist not the best, der kaisser is biger, has more puncture resistance, is beter por dry, loose and rocks, the rolling resistance is similar, for me works better in dry, in mud der baron is a better option

Great - but expensive

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

superb grip on the trails, immediately noticed a difference. they are pretty expensive, and the rolling resistance is pretty high! seem to be durable though.
