    1 Racing Ralph 2.25 Evo - 537gr
    1 Nobby Nic 2.25 SS - 715gr

    Both new. Both measured on Park scale. I was REALLY excited about the Ralph and then super bummed about the Nic. The crap Schwalbe has been spewing about the new Nic being 30gr LIGHTER is straight BS! Maybe they meant they were all 30gr HEAVIER and had a massive typo???

    I think I forgot to add my 2 Aspens to the list a few weeks back. They were both new and were the "base" models...

    531gr
    527gr

    Nobby Nic 2.25 SS- 639gr
    New tire on an Ultimate scale. Pretty happy on this one. Light weight and a fairly big contact patch. We'll see what durability is like. I am leaning towards a Ralph 2.25 SS for the rear.

    @gambas - thanks!
    @monolith - you got hosed on those aspens... 85g heavier than the average of everyone else?!? could you check & confirm those weights before I add them... they seem like outliers.
    everyone else - i'm trying to keep quality data, so please post everything the package and/or tire says on it. that means: brand, model, version, width/size, etc.
    i'm starting to ignore the junk posts because doing the research is getting old.

    Stans keep oozing from little pin holes... they are getting sealed right away if I "shake and bake" the tire... but as the tire is getting worked in (2 days of riding only so bar), some leaks are showing up... It's just a PITA.... it will end up working out, but it's still a major hassle...

    I'll be rethinking my next set of tires that's for sure... paying a bit of weigh penalty on TLR (tubeless ready) tires might be worth it to me...

    Haha, I thought my scales were off at first... but a mate of mine who bought the same tyres had similar weights, just over 600g. Maybe we get the cast-off stuff down here at the end of the food chain (New Zealand).

    From what I can tell, the ones we get from the local Maxxis distributor are just regular flavoured folding bead tyres - from what I can see online, the 520~g 29x2.1 Aspens have the maxxis "exception" logo on the sidewall (Which is interesting, cos the maxxis website doesn't list such a tyre).

    Interesting, seems to have slipped under the 29er forum radar that these were coming. I have a couple people who say they would move to 29ers if the High Roller was available. I guess I need to send them the link on these. There is still nothing on the Specs tab on the High Roller on the Maxxis site.

    I shortly demoed those in 2004. Just took them a while to get them to the market it seems. At least, if the tread is still the same. The early ones were tiny, like a 1.8-1.9 and brutally slow.

    Actually both versions of the Aspen 29x2.1 exist: the 60 tpi version (TB96689500) and the 120 tpi eXCeption Series version (TB96689000). The U.S. decided to only carry the 120 tpi version, and the NZ distributer likely decided to only carry the 60 tpi version.

    The Maxxis website says "120 tpi" for the eXCeption Series version. And we're currently in the process of adding all the tires the U.S. doesn't carry to the website in order to make it a more "International" website.

    Honestly, I didn't even know these tires existed. I knew the tire must be old, because we haven't done the orange stripe in over 5 years. It turns out that the last shipment of 29x2.1 High Rollers went out in 2003. I'm suprised any are still around.

    The ETRTO is listed as 47-622. A 47mm width is quite narrow, although from your pictures is does look wider.

    Man, the sucks about your Nic... I'm thinking if I were to cut down a Ralph, of looking at the Nic 29er (only available in SS), and thought, 645g (claimed) isn't bad... but 715g actual? yikes!

    Schwalbe site shows 645g: http://www.schwalbetires.com/nobby_nic_hs411

    Yes. I've just raced the Rockets today on gravel, loose dirt, hard pack and grass at 25psi tubed and I'm very positive. They have a lot more traction than my Ralphs. So far so good. I really can't say much more at this point.. - More time on them is required.

    What do think about their durability? Do you expect trouble in rocky terrain? I heard the Rons use the Fred casing...

    I've BEEN tubeless bro Not worth the hassle

    Don't know about durability yet and as I'm from Denmark, no rocky terrain. Compared to my FF's they seem thicker and more durable tho! The thread pattern on the 29'er Rocket is more aggressive than the 26'er version BTW.

    So, I am running my Nic up front, what Schwalbe tire would you recommend for the rear? The best rear tire for me has been an IRD, but would like something a little lighter. I ride in Southeast PA/Norhtern MD and encounter anything from rocks to mud. I am looking for something that does well on wet roots/rocks as most places I seem to be riding have at least one stream crossing/wet section.

    Palphs are s*** in sticky/clay-ish mud. No traction at all.. Good on wet roots and rocks tho.
    I haven't tried my Rockets in wet conditions yet.

    that's one thing still bothers me about Schwalbe... by far some of the priciest tires around... you'd expect MUCH tighter tolerance and quality control...

    Agreed. It looks like the Ron's are all over the map on the current chart/list...as low as 500, a couple of 530's and even one 547.

    ok, i see the updates, but also I now see a 120tpi version of the ignitor as well......but only a 5 gram weight difference for the ignitor 120 vs 60 tpi, butthe 26er version 60 to 120 os close to 90g difference and for the aspen a 55 gram difference.....is this just a typo for the ignitor or for real ???

    how can I get a 120tpi version of the ingitor in the u.s. ??

    I assume your referring to the 120 tpi Ignitor 29x2.1 listed on the website, PN TB96694500. This tire has Exo-Protection sidewalls and a 120 tpi casing; there was simply not a place to list the Exo sidewall. So the addition of Exo-Protection adds nearly the same weight as the 120 tpi casing removes. I believe these tires will be in stock sometime mid July.

    So, with the thinner casing and extra protection is the sidewall on this new 120 tpi version thicker/tougher than the previous versions? Oh and when can we expect to see the 2.3" version of the Ignitor? Also was curious as to why the change in how the tyres are listed - no more 29er listing, you have to check out each tyres spec to see if they are offered in 29"?

    The 120 tpi casing with Exo-Protection is slightly thicker and MUCH tougher than the regular 60 tpi casing.

    Well, the 60 tpi version will be cheaper, and it also uses a harder compound which is desirable if one rides on pavement and primarily dry trails.

    OK, didn't notice that, glad you point that out. Any chance you guys will be doing dual compound on whatever you're working on and intro it to the Crossmark like the 26" LUST version has? How about LUST for us 29er folks? Oh and any clue as to when we can expect to see this mythical tyre(s) you keep teasing us with?

    The 120 tpi casing with Exo-Protection is slightly thicker and MUCH tougher than the regular 60 tpi casing.

    ok cool, I ride in a pretty rocky area, and while i love the aspens, i have torn one sidewall on the front running tubeless on a stans rim, but the durability and the grip of the ignitor esp with a 120tpi and exo should be a nice compromise, will still prob run aspen up front but the ignitor on the rear.....

    OK, so you've given us a date, now can you give us an idea where it/they'll be slated in comparison to what's already offered? From your comments I'm taking it there's something along the lines of an Ignitor, but better, but you hinted at more than one tyre.

    Too bad, because they feel sooo good! I favor these over Racing Ralphs, if it were not for the weight. I feel terrible racing any tire above 600gr.

    The work pretty well, I used them quite a while with my Flows. My experience with these was much better than I had with the 26x2.3 Python I had on my smaller wheeled 5x5.

    29-2, first weight! (in this thread, that is)

    608 and 613gr for the TLR Team Issue version. Quite light for that volume and TLR. I am curious about what they'll do on the trail.

    I marked your tires as "could not find" because neither of them appears on the website as you have them listed. is your 29-2 a 2.1" width?

    The website is not very clear about them, but I suppose the 120tpi version actually is the Team Issue version. They are all TLR, according to the list of features. Yes, it is a 2.1". They all are.

    http://www.bontrager.com/model/08763

    Also check the Trek/Fisher site and zoom in on the bottom of the back wheel. It is this tire, apart from the 'prototype marks' ;-).

    I run Raven 2.2s front and rear. I don't ride plush smooth singletrack, its all rocks, coral, gravel roots, wet and dry..and these tires have been absolutely fantastic! They are super fast, and have a lot more grip than you would be led to believe. They do slide out a little bit in gravel on tight turns, but pretty much everything does it on those sections. They also like to slide out on the nasty greasey black mud...but so does everything else. I think the key to those tires is the right PSI. Too high, they will slide, too low, you'll start hearing and feeling rim dings. I run mine at 24-25psi, weigh 175lb. and these things are very predictable, very fast, and very comfortable. They have pretty much all the grip I need! There is only a handful of times where I didn't feel confident with the tires is the times mentioned, and on really tight descending switchbacks that are really sketchy.

    New Maxxis IKON (non EXO) = 533 g

    Running it in the rear on a hardtail. Traction and comfort blows away the Crossmark it replaced (admittedly that one was about end of life). The Crossmark was 591 g

    I highly doubt that you'll find any, except maybe in an actual shop that might happen to have some left over. They were blown out last year pretty much everywhere, I picked up 4 from REI and glad I did, they make an axcellent all round rear tyre, setup tubeless really easy.

    If there are multiple versions of the tire, please specify which one it it. I'm assuming these are Team Issue (120 tpi)

    2011 Schwalbe Rocket Ron 29x2.25", Pace Star tubeless ready tires (2): 528g and 542g

    Pretty good, especially if the new bead is better (although I never had a single issue with the old style).

    I also just got a set of the new Rocket Rons. Inflated them with a floor pump and the bead sits tighter than the Captain Control. I managed to shave over 3/4 of a pound with these tires.

    Curious, how do those sidewalls feel, like 100g paper or 160g? Unless you plan on running em tubed or in just buff trails, those Schwalbe EVO sidewalls are too thin, won't waste money on anything from them again unless it's Snakeskin.
