Loads of grip.

by -

Probably the easiest tyre I've ever seated tubeless.
I've struggled with tyre roll in the past, this tyre grips like glue on hard pack and loose over hard pack. Plus I haven't experienced any tyre roll whatsoever with the project apex casing. I was using exo tr aggressors and this is my new favourite rear tyre!.

Mega grip!

I've come from a long time running endurance/cross country tires, and decided to change to a chunkier, wider tire. I live in an area with 95% of trails being hard pack, this tire was a no-brainer!
I believe this tire was specifically designed for hard pack downhill trails, but even when using this as a cross country tire, including lots of climbing, compared to other tires, the rolling resistance is surprisingly low for a downhill tire.
I'm running this tire up front with a Schwalbe Nobby Nick on the back. It may sound silly, but this is a confidence-inspiring front tire, with high side knobs and large, wide inner knobs, you can lean into corners without fearing your front end slipping out.
I only wish I had discovered Continental tires before I bought my rear Schwalbe Nobby Nick, as I would have run this amazing tire back and front in a heart beat.
I much prefer the BlackChili compound to Schwalbe's Addix compound and Maxxis' selection of compounds, as I feel it is more durable and harder than others, while still able to grip as well if not better in many situations.
These tires defiantly arent cheap, running at $90 a pop, you wont wont to buy these if you are the type that likes to skid a lot.
If you are on a budget, I would recommend Continental tires over any other brand, as in my experience, they last twice as long and out perform other brands, meaning you do need to save more for your tires, but pay out in the long run.

If for some reason you live in Australia and find snow/ice on the roads and trails, and also have some spare cash, I reckon with a bit of time and a handful of screws, these could become a gnarly studded tire!

Of course, these tires arent for everyone.A cross country racer or weight-weenie may even gag a little thinking about pushing these, as the weight/speed ratio is too low.

This whole review probably didn't format with proper paragraphing, so I apologize in advance :D
