Schwalbe Rocket Ron Evo 29x2.25 TR Folding Tire
Schwalbe reduced rolling resistance on the super lightweight Rocket Ron by 15% and the Tubeless ready design is easy to set up.
Came on my Scott scale. Ripped out a sidewall literally 20 feet from my car on a dirt/gravel road. Couldn't believe it. The one pervious ride I had on them before that was on smooth single track was fine although I think the side knobs are too soft for aggressive cornering. My thought is 500g tires are just a gamble I'm not willing to live with.
Went from Geax AKA 2.2's to these. Lost 500 grams (over a pound) just by switching tires and that's not including converting to tubeless as well. A little difficult to set the bead for tubeless with a pump. I had to use the neighbors compressor.
This is a fast, light tire it accelerates well and provides good climbing grip. My problem is with cornering the side nobs fold over and I loose grip. If you are looking for a fast racing tire with some compromise on cornering this is it.
Best front tire I've used for Florida's loose over hardpack and sometimes very sandy conditions. I was a big fan of the Maxxis Ikon but this tire is lighter and has more grip without a noticeable rolling resistance penalty.
