If you're ready to take your enduro game to the next level of dangerous, the Continental Der Baron is worth a thorough gander. Formerly known as the "Rain King," Continental quickly realized that this tire was suited for much more than merely the wet conditions that the old name might have implied. In actuality, this tire has been proven to perform in everything from soft and wet to loose and rocky conditions.
Many have found the rounded profile to work particularly well as a front tire, however this purely personal preference. With a fairly-open, symmetrical pattern, the Der Baron deals with rough landings without complaining and rolls easily enough to carry speed going both up and down, while its dual-ply casing with Apex puncture protection and Black Chili compound keep the sidewalls supported under aggressive cornering and effectively prevents punctures.

Black Chili Compund: Offers pmroved rolling resistance and mileage along with efficient rolling
ProTection Tubeless Ready insert and Apex stiffening: provides excellent puncture resistance and maximum stability
Versatile tread pattern: Provides good rolling characteristics and a sporting weight
I've only had one weekend of riding DH on this tire, but I am already impressed. Traction is amazing! I'm using it as a front tire on my TR500. It rolls quite well and handles low psi without folding over. Really confidence inspiring in the wet, especially on rots and rocks.
