What technology does it use in its construction?

Continental's Kryptotal Rear comes in various Tubeless Ready options tailored to your need. The sturdy 6/110 TPI Downhill Casing, SuperSoft and Soft Compound combinations optimised for protection and grip over speed, through the mid-range 3/110 TPI Enduro Casing Soft Compound for the perfect balance of protection and traction and braking, right down to the longevity focussed Endurance Compound, 3/60 TPI Trail Casing variations where rolling efficiency and predictability is paramount.

What is the intended use?

The Kryptotal Rear from Continental has been optimised for rear wheel use, in mixed terrain and conditions, providing superior braking, traction and track stability. The use of steep and shallow ramps across the centre tread breadth delivers a perfect balance of compliance, rolling resistance, self cleaning and power transmission properties. Better suited with the Kryptotal Front specific tyre dressing the front wheel.

Our verdict

If you ride or race anything from All Mountain/Trail events to Downhill, the Continental Kryptotal Rear is the perfect addition to your tyre collection. Designed to excel on the rear with incredible traction under braking and supportive shoulder knobs, but also suitable up front with a fast rolling rear tyre to cover not-so-aggressive trails.
