    I couldn't give up on the Nobby Nic... ordered from a new supplier:

    NN 2.25 Snakeskin Pacestar (710g claimed):
    1. 683g
    2. 689g

    !!! So light ones do exist !!!
    It's absolutely insane that I've personally weighed these tyres with 67g swing. Maybe the new compounds will have better tolerances?

    Got some Rocket Rons too ...

    RR 2.25 Snakeskin Pacestar (610g claimed):
    1. 634g
    2. 638g

    Both lighter than my last one!

    Happy with that lot.

    FWIW the Continental X-King Protection 2.2 is an utterly dreadful tyre. It looks and feels like plastic. Even at dangerously low pressures for me (rear @ 24psi) it felt very harsh - worse than Schwalbe Double Defence - and seemed to roll worse than DD's too, with no noticeable grip advantage over a Racing Ralph. It leaked sealant through the sidewalls too. Maybe it might last for ages, or be totally bullet proof, but I'll never know because I just couldn't wait to get it off the bike.

    New RaRa Addix speed 29x2.25's.
    You couldn't have this happen if you tried but both of mine weighed exactly the same! I even tried tricking the scale with other tires in between.

    (part number/sku)
    11600251.03 57-622 (29 x 2.25 ) SnakeSkin, TL Easy Addix Speed

    Claimed weight 630g
    Both of mine were 638g dead on the money.

    Also I put some calipers on them. I have the older enve XC 29 rims. They are narrow as #$%^. My 2.2 specialized fast traks would come in at 1.99. These rara come in at 2.11 which is damn good for how narrow these xc29 rims make tires. On a more modern rim I am sure they will measure to 2.25 or even more.

    Ordered them directly from schwalbe via my LBS. You can order them now straight from Schwalbe.

    I personally don't notice any difference between previous rara's. I'd say at the same PSI these feel a "little" softer in the since of more plush. Not like softer as in the same psi I am not dinging my rims.

    I am more interested in their supposed "longer life". I always liked rara's but at their price and literally the side knobs would tear after about 3-4 rides I just couldn't keep on buying them. I had switched to specialized s works tires because they were so light and nice tpi and great value. Now that they don't make s works any more and their new tires are big turds, i've gone back to try rara's. Spesh dropped the ball with their new "gripton" version of their tires. They are literally 250g heavier than previous fast traks and only 60tpi now.

    I'll let you know after a few weeks of riding these. These are on my race tires so they wont see that much use, but if it looks like they really addressed their durability issues then I'll start putting these on my training wheelset.

    Maxxis Forekaster 2.35 EXO/TR

    735 claimed - 757.3g weighed.

    Not too far off. Happy with it. Thread looks like some sort of mashup of a Nobby Nic and a Rocket Ron - a good thing in my book.

    I got it from planet cyclery via ebay.

    2017 Schwalbe Nobby Nic EVO 29x2.60 PaceStar PSC TLE SnakeSkin 2.6 Tubeless Easy

    SKU: TIR2507-418

    I bought a couple earlier this year from Germany that were 810 and 790 grams. I saw the Addix version coming and wanted another that was more in the 800g range... but 736? It has me worried that they left out some parts.

    wow - if it has all its lugs, a bead, and is generally opaque in nature, you might be able to flip that one for more $$! 120g is nothing to sneeze at.

    ONZA Canis 29x2.25 Skinwall:

    Front = 670g
    Rear = 668g

    Do not run this tire below 20psi. It actually performs best between 29-34psi. Looks like Racing Ralph.... grips like Ikon 2.35." Skinwall casing feels supple like a 120tpi one. Very fast on straights even rock gardens. Dry loose conditions is where this baby shines. My legs are loving it again. Get the Nino retro 90s look, without going full Dugast sew-ups.

    Panaracer Fat B Nimble 29x3.0

    Factory Specs are: 29◊3.00 / 76-622/ Folding / 765g

    My weights for two: 737g /739g

    I measure the casing width (new tire) to be about 62.5mm @ 40 psi or about 60.5mm @ 16 psi mounted with tube on i24 rims. These are MUCH smaller than their designation - which is good or bad depending on what one is looking for. Essentially, they are a true 2.4 to 2.5ish width.

    For future reference, thought I'd post this here. I randomly came across this site that measures rolling resistance across several tire brands:
    https://www.bicyclerollingresistance.com/

    If you are shopping for tires, you may be interested in this data, in addition to posted weights.
