    Looks like they are available here in Japan for about $150US each for the 4.8's. Stated weights:
    26x4.00:1090 g
    26x4.80:1290 g
    Rakuten has an English site and international shipping, but I couldn't find the tires on their global site.

    Received the Jumbo Jim 26X4.8 Liteskin in the mail yesterday. They seem pretty light in weight, but the sidewalls are pretty standard thickness, feel just like my Hand Dampf and I have beat the shit out of those with never a burp or sidewall tear. Not what I would call a minimalistic tire by any means so I'm not sure the extra weight of the Snakeskin is even necessary. Only riding for them a bit will tell the truth. Will be at least 2 weeks before I am home, over the jet lag and have them mounted up to test.

    I posted earlier in this thread about that. I am visiting the UK for work for 3 weeks and saw a place over here Sideways Cycles got a shipment of them so I emailed him and had them shipped to my Hotel.

    Nice Crazy ! Interesting to hear if the OEM tyres are the same as the "soon to be" production tyres.

    I know a lot of the time that Schwalbe tyres that come OEM on full builds eg Giants, Merida ect are slightly different in rubber and weight than the single bought production tyres.

    You would surely think that with the small volume of fat tyres and OEM full builds, that they would be the same, not as if its worth making them cheaper as its nowhere near the scale of the big brand full builds.

    Let us know of the weigh in ? Your answer will rest the minds of those picking up OE tyres.

    Ok... just ordered a set of the 4.8" liteskins, need the volume for this years Desert race. Hope the casing is good... cant be any worse than the non-tech floppy rubber bag tyres we are all riding at the moment.

    At 54€ each (78$au) they are similar priced to Racing Ralphs for my MTBs. Would never have guessed that with a Schwalbe fat tyre.

    Hans Dampf don't come in Liteskin either if I'm not mistaken - second guessing my ordering of Snakeskin TL Easy versions now... perhaps the Lites are going to be reliable enough, particularly for exclusively snow usage?

    Yeah they're pretty meaty for a 4.0 tire. I like the compound as well feels like they're more tacky that the D4's I had and they roll better too. Did I say light!?

    Just my opinion mind you. Means really nothing until I get home to ride them and see if they hold up. Mind you, I did not choose Liteskins, they chose me as that is all they had and I'm impatient. 😬

    I've ordered a 4" liteskin - that picture above sold it to me - they look pretty big on a 65mm rim - which is what mine will be going on - slightly concerned about the tread though! Looking forward to trying these in our drying conditions here in the UK

    FWIW, I bought a Felt DoubleDee30 and weighed the tires; 1090g on one, 1048g on the other.

    4" Liteskin - a bit heavier than advertised.

    just ordered a Jumbo Jim 4 liteskin at my lbs. The pricing is impressive, even without my team discount. under $120, which is hard to believe, considering that's not far off of what they charge for their regular tires... I'll know on tuesday whether they're available or if I'll have to wait.

    Lookin good Forged1 ! Cant wait to drop a kilo off my tyres, I like my 4.8s, but Buds but at 1650g are a hefty lump of rubba.

    When are we getting some reviews of these with comparison to other tires? That tread is seriously sparse... How well does this bad boy work on the trails?

    I agree that it looks sparse but Schwalbe does well enough with their other tires that I doubt they'd bring a sub-par offering to market.

    Jumbo Jim

    So looking at the true tire sizes, this falls right in line with Bud and Lou, in both volume and width. They are tires with different intentions though.

    A bit smaller in volume than the Chao 4.9, which is ~267mm+, and similar in width. JJ is 350 grams lighter, and has bigger cornering knobs that wrap more over the edge. Price advantage to the Chao.

    Curious to see how this high volume, fast roller segment does in the long run. Practically speaking, the places you need high volume also benefit from more aggressive tread. This surely won't challenge bud and Lou for all out winter traction.

    This looks like a summer tire to me. Dirt, sand, loose conditions, but not mud or muck or snow. Fast rolling. XC conditions rather than gnarly rock gardens. Like a BFL but a bit more aggressive.

    got my hands on one of these at NAHBS yesterday. Definitely summer tread, but a little bit different than the ramped knobs like you find on Husker Du, Chao, FatB, etc. Looks like the squared knobs will give a bit more bite, and the wide spacing is part of what keeps weight down.

    It's been broken since September last year.
