    29er tire weight list

    I admit that I'm a WW when it comes to tires and some of these 29er tires are scary in the weight department. There is lots of tire talk but weight is usually left out. I think it would be helpfully if we had a listing of 29er tire weights.

    Here's two that I just bought:

    Kenda Karma 1.95; 525 grams
    Kenda Klaw 1.95 front; 665 grams

    my WTB Stout 2.3 came in right at 900 grams (minus the packaging)

    </center>

    The WTB Nano I took off the front was 687 grams, I just needed more grip in the front.

    I am also a WW when it comes to tires. I just put on a set of 2.4 Racing Ralphs. They weighed 600 and 606 grams each. MUCH lower than published. They were 25 grams heavier that the 2.1 Kenda SB8's. The difference in width and grip offered was more than enough convincing to gain around 50 grams

    Continental Race King's 2.2 - 695g (average 690g & 700g)

    I am debating switching to:
    Fr: Racing Ralph 2.4"
    Rr: Racing Ralph 2.25"


    I use RR's on my 26er, and get on well with the tread pattern.

    What weight weenie 29"er tires in specific are you interested in knowing the weights of for your list?

    As we all know, each tire model has a range of weights and one may luck out with a lighter weight tire of that model and another may get a heavier weight.

    I have one Crow 2.0 that is 460g and one that is 480g.
    I have one Raven 2.2 that is 528g and one that is 548g.
    I have one Nanoraptor that is 566g and one that is 606g.
    I have 4 Karma 1.9's that are all 510g.
    I have 2 Racing Ralph 2.25's that are both 580g.
    I have one Maxxis Aspen 2.1 that is 480g and one that is 500g.

    I don't have them, but the Schwalbe Furious Fred's are 335g per tire. That should be WW enough for most.

    And I could go on and on, but outside of the various Bontrager XR skinny and light versions things start to get up in the 600g+ range from there....

    Here is my measurements list:

    Notubes Crow: 439 / 478
    Bontrager XR1: 484 / 489
    Kenda Karma 1.9": 521 / 498
    Notubes Raven: 513 / 517
    Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.25": 563 / 547
    Continental Race King 2.2": 647 / 659
    Bontrager ACX 2.2" TLR: 656

    From 550gr upwards, I have a hard time to consider tires to be race-worthy. That's a very personal limit, very much influenced by the terrain I race on: Mostly forest conditions with little rocks thrown in. I find, there is very little choice under 550gr. It seems some tire manufacturers just do not push to low weight in the 29" department as they do with 26" tires. There are masses of 29" tires above 600gr because of that and I think they do not need to be.

    The ACX kind of proves that. Full knob, pretty wide and TLR beads at a pretty good weight. Conti achieves the same weight with their Race Kings (and my pair is light!), but with only a semi knob tread. If Conti would use their "supersonic" casing, the Race King would be on par with the Racing Ralph, possibly even lighter. Now THAT would make a racing tire. We're only at the beginning of 29er specific development, I guess.

    Now if we just could persuade the Germans to go and race 29ers...

    Not to be a downer, but how can NoTubes tires even be considered mtb tires? It's easy to be light when you don't have any rubber knobs.

    Not to be a downer back at you, but this question is getting about as tiresome as is possible on every thread that the Raven or Crow is mentioned. All I can say is go buy a Crow, a Raven, a Vulpine, a Furious Fred or any other semi-slick XC race tire and give 'em a go. Then get back to us on what you discovered and found by running them. By the way, there are more tires in this category for 29"ers coming.

    Plenty of guys riding and racing semi-slick tires in the 26" and the 29" platforms who would beg to differ with your opinion as to how they could be considered a mountain bike tire.

    Toss a leg over a pair, take 'em out on your trails and get back to us. That's really the only way to answer the question.

    I'm with you Bruce.

    F5000SL should have taken a trip to Houffalize this spring to tell the Fisher world cup team that what they were doing with those tires on that course should not be considered MTB.

    On an XC specific course, more riding skills equals less traction needed.

    Back to tire weights: I have some Intense's lying around that I should weigh to add some to the 'boat anchor' category, but where...

    That makes enough sense. Better to be heavy than walking. Lets us know if they hold up. (in another thread though, no hijacking here.)

    I had Python's on the bike this winter. I liked them but not enough to keep them. The front was OK but the rear would slide around the corners like a flat track motorcycle. They weighed in at 630 & 635.

    michelin xc at 2.0. 650, 660. after 6 years of just riding/racing/commuting on my 29er. i haven't ridden a tire that is more durable, sheds mud and just plain works better than all other tires that i've tried. i usually get 1500+ road commuting miles at 55 psi and another 500 + offroad at 32 psi including racing out of a pair. buy em, they are less expensive than most as well. where i live it's all rocks and the side walls hold up incredibly well on em.

    Depending on where you ride, the Rampages are an excellent all around tire. I have been running them exclusively for about two years in rooty, rocky terrain and love them. They are a bit heavy (didn't weigh my 1st set, 2nd was as listed above). I need a new set and was going to try something with a little less resistance and a bit lighter. Traction is great though.

    WOW, that's 60-75 grams less than listed on Bike29. If that's accurate, it is a huge (albeit positive) discrepancy. Are those weights consistent with other sets you've had, or are they the only ones you've weighed?

    Wasn't trying to explain _your_ average.
    Just how mine was interpreted
    (i.e. that I had two weights one for my Front and one for the Back tire, rather than I weighed the same tire twice with two close results that I averaged).

    Again, jolly good show on the spreadsheet!

    I haven't seen the tire live as of yet, only weights posted on this forum. They are in stock at several online retailers. Bike29 is claiming a weight of 295g for the Furious Fred 29"er. 20100FR got a sample pair that weighed 336g and Francois' pair were 293g (although I think his was a 26" version, but can't tell from that post) which you can and did read about here at the time.

    I'm going with the 335g claimed weight as the best point of reference.

    now updated w/a bunch of advertised weights... trying to clear up some confusion w/bontrager models but their website is slooooooooooooooooooooooooow
    i'll add my own 8 or so tires when i get a chance to weigh them. luckily i'm in the middle of a wheel swap, so 6 of them are off bikes.

    Wish I could, but even w/a shop discount, rotating tires on a whim gets too expensive. Most of where I ride, my Crossmarks hold there own most times, but are still limited on traction when leaves, sand, & mud, so by the looks of the tires in question, it was only the proper question for me to ask.

    As for other posts having the same question, I know it's hard to believe, but some of us can't and don't hang on the forums all day replying and reading everything in sight, my bad I guess.

By the way, there are more tires in this category for 29"ers coming.

    Plenty of guys riding and racing semi-slick tires in the 26" and the 29" platforms who would beg to differ with your opinion as to how they could be considered a mountain bike tire.

    Toss a leg over a pair, take 'em out on your trails and get back to us. That's really the only way to answer the question.

    ......as per the OP

    "I admit that I'm a WW when it comes to tires and some of these 29er tires are scary in the weight department. There is lots of tire talk but weight is usually left out. I think it would be helpfully if we had a listing of 29er tire weights".


    Where I ride the Rampage is my WW front.

    I saw the emphasis on the part in bold above, and not the part you saw. My attitude is that many riders use big fat knobs to compensate for the lack of skill and being able to pick a line and ride smooth.

    I have Rampages, and I like them for when I need a gnar gnar tire with fat rims and weight is not important, maybe twice a year. The rest of the time I ride tires with less weight, better cornering, braking, and climbing grip, and much less rolling resistance!

    Is the Crossmark better for any terrain than the RR2.4? I read accounts of the 2.4 rolling extremely well on gravel, amongst other surfaces.

    Probably like you , I fiddle around with this stuff too much. I ride in colorado. I actually like the RR but it is a bit skittish on gravely downhill hard turns- what isn't!? I let myself get talked into trying it on the front; I am thinking of returning it. I tried it last summer and found it fine on the back and I know the one I was riding then was less than 600gms.
    My current favortie rear tire is the Kenda Small Block 8 - at 200lbs on my Jet 9 it never fails ( I have had a rare slip, going up rock edges when I have used this on my hardtail).

    CST Caballero, 29 x 2.25 Advertised 750 gr. Actual 774 gr. About the same rolling resistance as a Rampage, maybe a bit better. Not quite as sticky, but for $13.00 a tire they roll a lot of miles before wearing out. I have 1100 miles on the rear of my Niner RIP and I weigh 240 pound wet and ride rocks, roots, chunk, and fire road in S. California.

    How do those work (for XC), as Bruce pointed out I could care less what the 230 lb. all mountain guys are looking for and have been curious about these (using XR1 1.9s now)?

    Is this an older model year tire, or have they started making them near the claimed weight again? I had one that was stupid heavy. (closer to 700g).

    I believe mine are the original version that were considered too undersized in relation to the marked size. They measure 45mm in casing width using a rim on which a Maxxis Ignitor 2.1 measures 48mm. The ones I have are like new and were for sale in the classifieds but have been sold.

    Perhaps a bit off topic- does anyone know off hand if Crows work for clydes? I'm 230lbs currentely running wtb nano r's on arches and do mostly hard pack fire trail climbs. Heard they work best in that element .

    I've heard you can vary the amount of air in them, making them adaptable over a wide range of rider weights. Seriously, why not?
