- Conti Barons
A guy I was riding with on Saturday was running 2.3″ Barons. They were noticably smaller than my 2.2″ Rubber Queen. Go figure what Conti are up to, but that’s the way it is! FWIW, the 2.3″ Baron was still a sizeable tyre, just a little smaller than the 2.2″ RQ. Like the look of them actually, as a not full on mud tyre but UK “summer” 😉 tyre they might work well…Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscribershredderSubscriber
Just fitted one to the front at the weekend replacing a RQ 2.2 which I had F&R as said similar width but not as tall as the RQ.Posted 5 years ago
Still have RQ on rear the Baron was superb at weekend just biting that bit more than the RQ.
Taking nothing away from the RQ’s as also brilliant.

Ok, I looked up my nerd-tastic tyre-measuring list and on my 540, the Baron measured 74.2mm tall and 57.91mm wide at its widest point (2.28 inches wide) That makes it a pretty averagey 2.3 I reckon- smaller than a 2.4 Advantage (81mm tall, there is no 2.35 Advantage surely?) and smaller than a Swampthing 2.35 (74.72mm tall)
Hope this helps some…Posted 5 years ago
