Schwalbe's Rocket Ron has always been a tried and true tire loved by many, and this new iteration is sure to be well received. The tread pattern balances proportion between lugs, with enough spacing for proper mud shed and reduced rolling resistance. Paired with light weight, durable compound for low rolling resistance and high speed charging, the Addix Speedgrip compound is super universal, good for anything from cross country to all mountain and trail. It replaced the previously used PaceStar compound, boosting durability massively, adding grip, and better damping than the compound we'd loved for many years. This makes for a tire ready to roll for more miles and a longer life. The sidewalls are reinforced with SnakeSkin protection to defend against punctures and tears from rough terrain that bites back, and does its best to keep you from ending up stranded when you're pushing the limits in the backcountry among fell trees and sharp shale. At 2. 6-inches in width, this tire walks the line perfectly between a standard tire and a plus tire, giving you an extra plush ride and grip, without the necessary tire clearance of a plus bike.
