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.
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.
Singletrack magazine tested the top of the range Black Chili version and had the following to say : "Rubber fiends rejoice! Here we have probably the best wet conditions, aggressive trail riding tyre around....is designed to cope with being ridden hard at speed on properly technical natural terrain. It also works a treat on the manmade surfaces of the trail centres...Overall: Could be the best wet conditioin UK trail tyre ever."
