    Continental Der Baron 2.4 enduro tires

    these are significantly less expensive than the tried and true maxxis options locally. like $35 less. the ones i'm looking at are still black chilli, apex protection, etc. the top line tire in 2.4 size. anyone have first hand experience with this tire? i've heard it's a great tire, but some have said it blows off rims easily. i'm looking for a larger sample size of riders. it gets some great reviews almost entirely from Europe.

    Yes. They're very good in wet and cold conditions (due to BlackChili). Tubeless setup is finicky, and the casing seems to be a bit prone to deformation. Had burping, but tire stayed on rim.

    Depending on what you are looking for, a Maxxis Shorty could be a better all-round intermediate.

    I've got about 600 miles on a 29" Der Baron on a 28.5mm id front wheel, and I'd basically agree with artcyclery's review of the tire:

    "Though the Der Baron wasn't my favorite tire to date for dry, skatey, rocky terrain, the Der Baron would probably shine in wet and/or loamy terrain. The Der Baron's casing is super durable, resisting tears and punctures in even the sharpest rocks."

    i've had one on my smuggler for about a month now, front. 30 ID LB rim, went on easily, aired up with floor pump no problem. held air perfectly for most the first week. now it slowly loses air, needs topping up every couple days. that's the only downside far as i can tell. it has awesome grip at all angles, very confidence inspiring. local terrain is combo rocks, very very rooty and general trail dirt. BC XC. i may put a lightweight tube in it or just keep an eye on it. promising, i hope it lives up to a hard fall and winter season on the wet coast. tempted to put it on back as well but i have a lighter tire i like and needs to be used (purgatory grid, another good tire, but not in the same hard core class as this one.)
