Schwalbe reduced rolling resistance on the super lightweight Rocket Ron by 15% and the Tubeless ready design is easy to set up.
Got sealant? You'll need some if you'll be running these bad boys tubeless. Check out our selection of sealant and tubeless ready accessories.
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.
