    24 inch tyres - Hutchinson Toro

    Recently swapped out the rocket rons on Lewis's bike for a pair of 24x2.0 toro's. Its a much better tyre even though its 200g more.

    200 grams each or for both? 400 grams if total is substantially heavy.

    My boy tried out the rocket rons last weekend at 7 springs bike park in PA. He said traction was good and could tell the bike was a lot lighter. We originally had Kenda Nevegal 24"x2.5" (dh casing + tubes); the rocket rons shaved about 4-4.5 lbs off easy. I could see increase in acceleration when riding because of less rotation mass. I would still prefer something with a little more aggressive thread than RR's for dh/park riding that will seal the crest rims.

    Thanks for the info, are you running tubeless?

    Thanks for the info. My son Mathis rides on the RR's now but I know they will be very hard to get and if they are worn out I have to look at other options. These Hutchingsons sound like a viable alternative if the availability is better. We'll be off for a holiday in France in the near future, I might even pick up a pair when I'm there.

    Kind regards,

    Clemens
