Fast all-rounder for serious downhill and enduro riders   

For almost two years, Conti engineers worked together with some of the best downhillers and enduro riders in the world on the 'Kaiser Projekt'. Richey Schley's commented on the outcome: "You created a monster!"

This monsters uniform wedge shaped shoulder lugs provide a progressive cornering response. This easy-to-control feel makes the Kaiser Projekt a tyre that really helps maintain speed in the corners. The ramps in the centre area roll up quickly and bite the ground when braking.

Available in both a 6-ply casing with APEX sidewall reinforcement for downhill, and a 4-ply casing with ProTection Apex reinforcement for enduro. The 2.4 carcass qualifies it as an agile weapon made for the hardest World Cup tracks and the most challenging Gravity Enduro round.

The ProTection Apex casing combines our proven 'ProTection' nylon bonus layer with an additional rubber apex sidewall stabiliser above the bead which reliably protects the tyre against puncturing even if the tyre pressure is low. This system protects the tyre reliably against cuts and puncturing without significantly increasing the weight.
