    Jumbo Jim in stock on Schwalbe US Site

    Guys,
    I talked with Schwalbe US earlier this week and they ensured me they would be in stock this week. Just ordered my 4.8's

    Bummer no snake skin 4.8's. After a stick easily punctured my 4.0 JJ lite skin, I'm definitely sticking with the Snake Skins. 100gr lighter doesn't help when you are pushing instead of riding....

    We had 2 of each in our grubby lil mitts and they where all within 20g of each other, didn't make sense.

    Sorry to hear of your bad luck. I have been running the 4.8 lite skins since March and had zero failures of any kind. I ride in rocks, dirt, and roots. Tire grabs roots and makes violent popping sounds but never a failure. I'm also 240 lbs and I run about 9-10 psi

    Yeah- I patched it and am still using them without further issue, but I was really surprised at how unarmored the guts were. It was just a little rubber with a few cords running through, similar to a lightweight cyclocross tire. Don't get me wrong I love the tires, they are awesome for summer and make my fatbike roll like a MTB, just want a little more protection.
