Fast-Rolling Mixed-Terrain Traction — Continental Kryptotal RE
Continental's brand new line of gravity tires has arrived! This means a full range of big, beefy, downhill-focused bruisers with no shortage of grip, tooth, cornering confidence, durability and monster traction available in four condition-specific models — from hardpack trails to loose and muddy downhill lines.
The Continental Kryptotal RE 27.5 is optimized for premium rear-wheel traction and fast-rolling support in mixed terrain and conditions. The Kryptotal RE's ramped tread pattern uses perpendicularly-siped center lugs to stabilize your line through anything from dry, hardpack XC trails, to loose, wet, rooty lines while a formidable ridge of tight and toothy cornering knobs lock down traction support through the corners. Available in a corresponding front-specific Kryptotal design and three casing options — trail, enduro, and downhill to fit your preferred riding style.
27.5x2.4/2.6" tubeless ready clincher tire
Optimized for rear-wheel use in mixed terrain and conditions
Available in trail, enduro, or downhill casing
Weight: 1000g (2.4" trail casing)

Krypto-Rear does the dirty deed!
1 of 2 customers found this review helpful.
After reading other favorable reviews on these tires on the interwebs I decided that I needed to give them a try too. Tires were easy for me to mount and get the beads to seat (air compressor). Swapped out similar tires from Schwalbe and hit the local trails in PDX. Instantly pleased with the tires, better traction which turned into more confidence on the descents, which turned into more smiles per mile. Climbing and descending with the Kryptotal-Rear is predictable with seriously great braking performance. I recommend giving them a go if you're needing a new set of tires.
