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 22 reviewers.
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
Rated 2 out of 5 by цепкая но тяжёлая. Для снега,песка,грязи самое то.хорошая передача энергии не плохое самоочищение но слишком жёсткая резина, на мокром асфальте повороты плохо держит.и очень тяжёлая чуть более 1000 гр. каждая, быстро устаешь. лучше выберайте максис. 12 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great DH/FR tyre from Continental. Great tyre for generic DH/FR that performs the best in mud/wet. Big, well spaced knobs with plenty of shredding mud clearance perform well under pressure and deliver amazing amount of grip when pushed hard. Cornering is predictable and seriously increases your confidence on your bike when in wet. I tested Barons in 2.3 at both rear and front. It gets you going much faster in mud/wet when at rear and it delivers shed loads of grip when in moist/dry/mud at the front when supported by a good rear tyre. All in all extremely good tyre for a fraction of cost of competitors'. Typical Conti soft compound and side wall not strong enough problems are making it easy to burst or slash when things get rough but the low cost makes it easy and cheap to replace every few months. 18 December 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Terrible Run on the rear of a 160mm rig. Set up tubeless on dt500 rims. What can I say? I cant swear so I will just say they are the most unpredictable sketchy tyre I have ever used. I own one because I am a Hans Dampf user an as usual, managed to destroy one (grip v longevity). Got a baron as a stand in. Firstly, If your going near wet rock, write a will beforehand. They are that bad. This may in part be because..... Secondly, like all previous continental experiences, the sidewalls are flimsy and thin and cant support the tyre. This means a higher pressure to stop them rolling. In fact I had to put 40psi in to stop them slopping about. I would usually run a tube at 34 and a tubeless at 28-30psi. All that air means much reduced grip. Thirdly, the knobs are so big, they might as well be slicks because what can they dig into? And finally, are they lined with lead??!! This is one heavy tyre. A single ply minion is about 600g and a hans dampf is 700g. A quick glance at contis stats and all their tyres are heavy as. In summery, a heavy ungrippy tyre that has no right to exist 19 November 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good price, decent grip For the price its brilliant, however its very slippery on wet roots. grip is great on everything else though. 02 November 2013

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.
