Agree and disagree with the writer’s premise. Agree. Even in the, uh, polar opposite riding conditions (SW desert), the Krypto f/r DH SS tires are literally the best-performing tires I’ve ever ridden. Period. But … I am not personally strong enough to hump 2700-ish grams of rubber up mountains day after day. Incredible tires, too heavy for me.  Disagree with the assertion that the previous generation of Continental tires were poor. I know the brand had issues years ago. But, at least in my riding conditions, the German-made Trail Kings and, even better, Der Kaiser Projekt, tires were incredible.
