Continental Kryptotal-R Tubeless Mountain Bike Tire (Black) (29") (2.4") (Endurance/Trail)
The Kryptotal is an amazing tire. I had no issues with the installation. The bead set right away and was true. I did notice slightly more air loss over time than with my Der Barons, but that's not a big deal. The major test for these tires was an extensive 3-day MTB trip to Sedona AZ. The tires were awesome! The rolled fast and had great grip. After the three days, I noticed very little wear. I'd highly recommend them.

Continental Kryptotal-R Tubeless Mountain Bike Tire (Black) (27.5") (2.4") (Soft/Enduro)
I typically do not write reviews, but after seeing the 1 star reviews, I felt the need to write one. I run an enduro team in AZ and we ride conditions that are very hard on tires. We have 4 racers using Continental Kryptotal's in the various options. We have only had one puncture all summer and it was more of a freak accident. We plugged that tire and ran it until the tread was warn enough to replace it. These tires inspire confidence on the descents. The only negative I could see, is that they are a bit heavy, but when you are only getting timed on the downhill, that's what really matters.

Continental Kryptotal-R Tubeless Mountain Bike Tire (Black) (29") (2.4") (Endurance/Trail)
Flatted the DH-cased supersoft rear on second ride, running bikepark pressures—28 psi—over cushcore. Gash directly to the tread that required 2 pieces of bacon. Bummed at the durability of this tire. Have been running maxxis tires for the past 5 years, from EXO+ to DD casing, and have never flatted like this, so it’s hard to recommend the continentals to anyone.

They should name this tire crap total
I bought the 29x2.4 for my e-bike
Installed on 30mm inner rim it at best 2.2 so narrow look ridiculous
I didn’t ride it and probably going to replace it. Wasted of money
Just wanted people to know it’s much narrower then what it supposed to be.
