I have narrowed down my search for a 29 inch rear tire. I am looking at the WTB Bronson which comes in two versions.
The race version comes in lighter at @720 - 750 g depending on what you read. The standard Bronson weighs in at a whopping 880 g.
I have no experience on anything other than a WTB Prowler on the rear. That weighs about 760g.
Is it worth spending 20 more bucks to get the lighter Race version? Will I notice the difference in weight? If so, when would I notice it?
I ride So Cal rocky conditions and hard pack. I came down Hummingbird on my hardtail yesterday on my worn Prowler and didn't cut the side wall, which is a concern of mine. The standard Bronson has tougher sidewalls than the Race, but I haven't read anyone complaining of sidewall rips on the Race version.
