Strengths:    Grips everything from dry rocks to wet roots. Tough yet compliant sidewalls with great feel. Tall profile gives extra cushion to absorb hits on rocks & from drops. True to size. Look really cool

Weaknesses:    None yet, unless you count getting it onto & off of the rim.

Bottom Line:   
I'm currently running this tire as a rear with a Freeride Tube on my SX Trail 7" bike that I run as a DH rig. I'm 200 lbs with gear and have struggled for the past year with flats using a variety of different rear tires..some of which I've had to run 36psi in to not flat. With between 25-29 psi in different conditions I've run this tire pretty hard and I'm finally able to get that worried feeling out of my head when blasting a rocky section or rock garden where you're like "oh crap, be careful" & "don't let the rear hit that one!!" It's a real confidence booster! Also, I know they retail for a lot of $$ but I managed to pick up 2 of them for $112 shipped which isn't bad at all. I think I finally found a tire worth being loyal to. Can't wait to try it as a front!

Continental Der Kaiser 26x2.4 Rammstein Projekt?

Anyone running this tire tubeless? From past experience with Continental tires, non specific tubeless tires weeped from the sidewalls when set-up tubeless. I'm hoping that is not the case with these, but if so; oh well.Read More »
