Continental Baron Tyre

Aggressive trail riding tyre.

Based on it's downhill equivelent 'Der Baron', the Baron is a lighter model in a narrower 2.3 size for aggressive trail riding and Freeride. It can handle major abuse on the trails, yet is light enough to climb!

With an 'Apex' rubber elastomer in the critical sidewall area to prevent impact punctures and an open tread with split lugs which adapt to the trail surface more quickly, the Baron is already turning a few heads.

  • Aggressive trail riding tyre with plenty of bite, already a favourite with Singletrack & MBUK magazines
  • From 800g, it handles major abuse yet is light enough to climb too
  • Developed with Atherton Racing
  • Apex sidewalls for extra strength

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by good, but mixed trails are a downfall these grip nice and tight in the corners on most stuff, but hardly any grip on tarmac!! 21 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Baron Had WTB's before and really loved them but friend told me about the Baron and I am over the moon, got a Baron 2.3 on front and XKing 2.4 on back, nice and wide. I have found these really good on both dry and wet surfaces, we did the Swinley man made trails in the aftermath of hurricane Bertha and needless to say wet, stones, roots and corners normally make for exciting moments., however these both performed well. Value- wise for about £15.00 a tyre I reaaly think these are excellent value. Not had a problem with punctures yet, however I do run snot tubes so this does help. 13 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great in mud! Great purchase! Got the foldable version for 17€, such a bargain, and I’m enjoying it so far. Using it for the front wheel, works great in muddy / soft condition, good grip, good cleaning. Not so great in hard terrain, but still decent. Bites the soft like a mud specific tire, but it’s way more stable in normal terrain. If you live in a rainy area like me, you could enjoy them almost all year. Weight/Strength balance is also good for a Trail or Light Enduro use. Very satisfied overall. If I had paid double, I would still be satisfied. 02 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by хороший накат Отличная покрышка для эндуро,хорошее сцепление и накат,после прокола катил пару минут,что привело к деформации покрышки,результат покрыха навыброс, Но вобщем впечатление хорошее,заказал еще 29 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great rubber Bought this tyre as a "just in case tyre" As usual Continental tyres are well made. I haven't used it yet but it looks like it will be great once it get muddy in the winter. 16 June 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointing tyre Used it 6 months: Cheap because low quality rubber (cracks on the sides) Unpredictable (hazardous trajectories) Good though in the mud, sandy trails, but slippery on wet rocks and roots Narrow for a 2,3" tyre Knobs are uselessly oversized Too heavy but fragile yet Could be much better designed and manufactured In one word; disappointing 11 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by hard compound mud clearing Run these for 18 months and still plenty of tread. Sketchy in the wet on smooth rock and needless to say roots ,but after so much time I found I can predict their behaviour. Never ever been clogged with mud . 29 April 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by A good cheap mud tyre. If you want a tyre for riding in sloppy mud these are great. Big knobs and clear mud very well. So good for most winter UK riding. But not so good on roots and rocks, they become very unpredictable. Even on wet tarmac they don't have the best traction. They also weight nearly a kilo. But they are cheap. Just put some decent tyres on once the mud dries up! Also find them difficult to get on/off. But that could be my rims. 28 January 2014

Answer: 
Which tyre you need does not depend on the type or brand of your bike. These are no tubeless ready so any that you like more will do- folding will be easier to take as spare, wire bead will be cheaper.

Answer: 
It all depends on your own personal preference- Baron is not tubeless ready thus it is upto you- folding will be great to carry as spare but wire bead will be cheaper.

Answer: 
This tire runs a 2.3" width, so any tube that covers this size will be suitable (i.e. tubes that run from 1.5-2.5, or 1.75-2.6 and so on). The valve type you can use (Presta or Schrader) depends on the rim you are using.
