    Hello,
    I have a spare Continental Kryptotal Front knocking about, as I swapped it for Argotal.

    I need a new rear tyre for the ebike as wondering about using it.

    Anyone done it or any reasons why not?

    Ebike has an Assegai on the front.
    Thanks

    Plenty of WCDH and other racers running them yes. No issues at all

    That’ll be fine – it’s a bit draggy but on an ebike it’ll be ok. Plenty of grip.

    If you already have it try it out and see? It’s not like you’re buying it.

    if its good enough for Gee im sure it will be fine, Gee used krpototal F on front and rear in the making of the dolimtes video aparently. i belive a lot of DH riders are also running the same combination.

    Yeah, I’ve been using  2x fronts on my enduro bike (after ripping the sidewalls on 2 rears) and it works well. Saying that, it could be worth hanging onto for when things dry out as I found the Argotals only work in slop/really soft conditions.

    Is the Kryptotal an upgrade up front over an Assegai??

    I ride steep muddy,rooty rocky trails most weeks and wanted to give it a bash

    or is the Argotal better?

    Won’t be so draggy when it’s part worn.  My KF-KR combo is still pretty new, but inevitably will be running ‘old’ front tyres on the rear over time.
