Specifically designed for rear wheel use, Continental's Kryptotal Rear tire is an all-around tread that offers a perfect balance between stability, traction for braking, and rolling resistance. It's an ideal choice for those who love pushing their limits on mixed terrain trails, enduro, or downhill gravity riding.
The New Compounds
The Kryptotal Rear Mountain Bike Tire comes in three different compound options to suit every riding style. The SuperSoft compound is Continental's softest and grippiest option, ideal for downhill and enduro riders who demand maximum grip and control. The Soft compound strikes a balance between grip and rolling resistance, making it a great choice for gravity-focused rides. The Endurance compound is designed to offer a high level of durability and good rolling resistance and grip, making it a versatile option for trail riders and e-bikes.
The New Casing
The Kryptotal Rear Mountain Bike Tire also features a casing construction tailored to different riding styles. The Downhill option is the most durable and reinforced carcass in the gravity lineup, while the Enduro casing is a durable single-ply construction with Apex to prevent snakebites. The Trail option offers comparable performance to the Enduro casing but is tailored specifically for trail use cases.
Continental's new mountain bike tire lineup is Tubeless Ready, with a robust carcass construction that is impervious to damage and penetration from foreign objects. This technology allows for versatility, low weight, and an attractive design.
The Kryptotal Mountain Bike Tires are suitable for use with e-bikes, and Continental draws on over 100 years of experience with moped and motorcycle tires to ensure their city and trekking tires are rated to a standard speed of at least 25 km/h.
Choose Kryptotal Rear for an unparalleled riding experience that takes your riding to the next level. Pair your bike up with a matching Kryptotal Front tire, and don't forget to grab some Tire Sealant for optimal performance.
Grip To Push Your Limits
I slapped two of the Trail/Endurance RE on my Canfield and I still can’t believe how good these are. I live in the Desert southwest for reference and the traction is unbelievable on everything I’ve thrown at it. Loose dry rock, hard packed kitty litter, sand, sharp rock you name it. Our trails are very XC oriented with some killer rough downhill sections and I was very surprised with how compliant yet stiff the casings were. No tire squirm at 24.5F 26.5R at 210lbs. They roll very good for how aggressive they are. Super predictable break away as well, I know exactly when they are going to let loose and they don’t just lose all grip at once. Absolute favorite tire to date. They also DO NOT lose traction on steep loose climbs.
Fantastic rear traction and braking
Best tires out right now!
Well… I absolutely love this tire, it is just great. If you get the enduro casing it’s also very affordable! Love the side waffles to help shed dirt, works really well. Love the entire thing. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it is hard to find so thanks Thunder Mountain! If you want a full review video im about to make one on my Youtube ChasendirtMTB. Thanks!
I'm a pretty aggressive single-track guy ups downs roots rocks mud dust whatever. I ran conti trail kings for ever without fear untill the stopped making them in the 27.5x2.6 (small plus sized). Tries maxxas minions (lots of flats and a couple shredded tires) until I tried the new kryptotal in the 27.5x2.6. So far they work amazing BUT... no matching front tire in sight! What gives? Works great on the rear (make sure it's on the right direction seriously different experience) but what am I supposed to run on the front?
