    Hey Jeremy,

    These are our new Syncros FLavor 29er Tires and they are fast!
    - Low profile knobs for decreased rolling resistance
    - Tubeless ready bead
    - Dual durometer rubber compound decreases rolling resistance while increasing cornering traction
    - 29x2.25" (620g)
    - Available this summer $69.95

    I am hoping to get at least one to replace the Schwalbe Racing Ralph 29 x 2.25 I run in the back of my Dos Niner. I want a fast rolling tire and the MBA review gave the weight as 1 Ib 6 oz which should put these just under 600g, which is an acceptable gain in my books if they also prove more durable, especially the sidewalls (which are fragile on the RR).

    Just got a pair from Outsideoutfitters. Very wide for 2.25, like RR 2.4 ! Weighs 650 and 670 grams. Compound is very pleasant,

    Are the tread blocks wider than the casing (like on a nevegal) or is the casing the widest part of the tire (as on the Racing Ralph) ?

    The tread is the widest part by about half a centimeter on each side.

    Probably a mute point since these tires are no longer being produced, but I just recently bought two of them and tried one up front on my rigid single speed 29er yesterday. Rode it at about 25 psi to start on a 28 mile mtb ride. The tire really impressed me. In spite of the fact that it weighed 663 grams instead of the advertised 622, it felt very nimble compared to my beloved Purgatory 2.4", yet the tire inspired confidence and tracked well. While it doesn't 'look' like a great front tire to me, it worked remarkably well. I think I can lower the psi a few, maybe 22 psi. Now to see how long it lasts with those short knobbies. The Purgatory 2.4" I've been running up front has 2,000 miles on it and I would estimate another 1,000 of life left.
