Continental Der Kaiser Projekt Apex Rigid MTB Tyre - 26"
For almost two years, Conti engineers worked together with some of the best downhillers and enduro riders in the world on the 'Kaiser Projekt'. Richey Schley's commented the outcome: "You created a monster!"
This monsters uniform wedge shaped shoulder lugs provide a progressive cornering response. This easy-to-control feel makes the Kaiser Projekt a tyre that really helps maintain speed in the corners. The ramps in the centre area roll up quickly and bite the ground when braking.
The new ProTection Apex casing combines our proven 'ProTection' nylon bonus layer with an additional rubber apex sidewall stabiliser above the bead which reliably protects the tyre against puncturing even if the tyre pressure is low. This system protects the tyre reliably against cuts and puncturing without significantly increasing the weight.

Superb grippy tyre, as you'd expect from Continentals flagship DH tyre. I replaced my 2.5 kaisers with these. The central tread doesn't stand so tall as the 2.5's therefore giving better clearance.
