    Schwalbe Super moto X alternative? 29*2.3 ish

    Been Looking around for a while for a commuting tyre for my Salsa fargo, Found a decent set the Super moto X's but seemingly nowhere sells them whatsoever, are there any alternative tyres in this sort of tread style and size?

    Any help appreciated.

    Looked for something for years that was like the Super Moto but the closest you will find is the Schwalbe Big Apple.

    They are NOT lightweight, but they last forever and pretty good puncture protection. Not quite as trail worthy as the Surly Extraterrestrial, but still capable

    I haven't tried them in this size, but Schwalbe is making the G-One Speed in 29 x 2.35https://www.schwalbetires.com/bike_t...es/G-ONE_Speed

    I use the G-One's on a commuter bike in 700x30c, and I like them. Roll fast and great grip.

    Take a look at the Specialized Compound Control 29X 2.2. I picked up a pair at a great price from a LBS that sells Specialized. Mounted them up on Velocity Daullies and they measured almost 2.4 on those i39 rims. Super traction on pavement.

    I have a pair of Super Moto Xs in 27.5 X 2.8 that actually fit my Soma B-Side too. They are bouncy and rather thin; snake skins I think, not the Green Guard ones. I prefer the Compound Controls and think they are probably a more durable tire.
