    New question here. When are Conti's new 27.5 tires coming out?

    Just wondering if anyone has a pulse on when Continental's new 27.5 tires will be available. I've been waiting on pins and needles for those sweet Trail Kings...

    I got mine the other day. Heavy, 1040g, and a tiny bit smaller than my 26" version. They just cleared the arch on my Van 36.

    I stretched the tires flat, and measured the canvas width on a few tires I use:

    Conti:
    TK/RQ 26x2.4: 168mm
    TK 27.5x2.4: 163mm
    MK II 26x2.4: 155mm
    MK II 27.5x2.4: 160mm
    Schwalbe:
    NN 27.5x2.35: 150mm

    Ole - where did you get them? I haven't seen them available anywhere in the US.
    I am flying to Europe today...I may have to search for them there.

    Yeah... thanks Ole. Having the weight is useful. Would definitely like to hear where you got them...

    I received an email directly from Conti earlier this week and they said US retailers will have them in November.

    Thanks - good to know. Being that it's November I'll definitely have to get some alternate rubber until then. Best...
