Take off with Schwalbe's new and improved Rocket Ron.
This lightweight race 29er has been updated with an even faster tread. Low profile center knobs deliver maximum speed in demanding XC conditions, and slightly taller side knobs rail the turns.
Schwalbe's PaceStar Triple compound features a supple base layer with a medium density center for fast rolling and longer life and a medium soft shoulder compound for grip. The new Liteskin sidewall provides the lightest tire possible while allowing easy tubeless conversion with liquid sealant. The tubeless conversion allows riders to run low pressures and achieve extreme grip without a high risk of pinch flats.
The Rocket Ron Evo 29 features a top quality 127 EPI casing. Folding bead. Available in 29 x 2.25 Inch (57-622 ISO). Actual weight: 525 grams.
