    I've compiled a list of all the submitted tires and their weights. Gonna work up a new spreadsheet for this. And going to make it a priority to keep it updated.

    Yes I know there is another one already. But its not fully updated. The List I've compiled is almost 3 pages long so far and I'm not done yet.

    So I'm doing one.

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.

    My apologies. For some reason the first link on the first page was only showing a partial list. Now its showing one that is closer to what I have written down.

    Sorry.

    Dammit. Forgot to weigh my Geax Barro Race TNT's 29x2.0's before mounting them.

    Advertised weight is 660g.

    You are right. Still under claimed weight though .

    The plastic card that they came with said 510gr, but it said 2.25" too, so that is probably a mixup with the front specific tire.

    I'm still surprised these came out this light. Prototypes averaged around 815g. Do you like them so far?

    I cannot say very much about them since I received them just today... The first visual impression is good, knobs are a bit higher than for the 2.25 and the sidewall is a bit thicker. I have not mounted them on a rim, though, so I cannot say anything about their dimensions.

    Weighed on my employers $3k scale ( = accurate)

    Specialized Captain 2Bliss 2.2 = 653.56g
    Fast Trak Control LK 2.0 = 622.50g

    I would have added to the spreadsheet, but these do not seem to match up with anything on it. Neither description nor weights.

    from www.singlespeed.nl, for 45 Eur not really a special offer, but ordering them from the US is +/- the same price considering shipping and customs/VAT. Getting special 29er stuff in Europe is still a bit of a mess, either not available or a bit on the pricey side...

    Bontrager weights

    As noted above, the packaging on some Bontrager tires has much different -- and usually less accurate -- weights than what appears on their website.

    For example, the Bontrager 29-3 2.25 TLR Team Issue tire specs on the website claim the weight is 730g. Plastic packaging with the tire reads 600g

    Anyway, from the scale:

    Bontrager 29-3 2.25 TLR Team Issue 728g
    Bontrager 29-3 2.25 TLR Team Issue 714g

    Bontrager XR-1 Team Issue 494g
    Bontrager XR-1 Team Issue 492g

    Geax Barro Race 29X2.0 470.1 grams These are not true 2.0's they're more like 1.8's. Kinda disappointing. Got them sealed tubeless on 355's easily.

    OK, let me play stupid. But with all these tire weights and girths, which can make a signicant difference in the roll and performance of a bike, how many of these tires are you guys running with tubes and how many are not? I know the Conti and Bon TLR work tubeless, because I've run them that way. And I know juice in the tires also adds weight, but what about RRs. I've seen them on bikes at the LBS and I like the profile but none of the guys I ride with use them. I've seen basically nothing but good comments from this forum about RR and are highly recommended, but everything else I've read says they don't work tubeless, and I only run tubes on my roadie. My knowledge of 26" tires has the manufacturer making tires with different thickness of casing depending on if the tire is UST or not. A typical UST tire is heavier because of the thicker sidewalls, thus adding weight and sidewall support, while a tube tire is not because the tube makes up the difference, therefore making it lighter until the tube is installed. To even further my confusion, the Bon 29-3 2.25 comes in an Expert version that is thick and heavy while the Team version is thin and light. Both are listed as TLR but is the lighter Team actually designed to used with a tube. That is how they are sold on production bikes. Curious, because I'm currently running the lighter Team for this weekend's Spa City 6hr, trying to decide what to run for Ouachita and Syllamo. Please clarify stupid.

    This is a picture 20 minutes after being mounted tubeless so I'm hoping they expand some. Maxxis Crosmark on the left,Kenda Small block 8 2.1" to the right.

    How accurate is a digital bike scale (like a Park Tool DS-1) for light weight stuff like tires? My scale puts both my new Aspens at 1lb 2oz (~510g).

    Finally got around to borrowing my bros scale and weighing all my tyres and wanted to throw them up for comparo. New and used tyres.

    NEW
    Bontrager XR1 = 530g (front 2.25")
    Bontrager MudX = 660g (very lightly used)
    Michelin XC A/T = 686 & 682g
    Kenda Nevegal = 790g (very lightly used)
    Maxxis Ardent 2.25" = 774g (lightly used)
    WTB WW LT = 790g (very lightly used)
    Conti Mtn.King 2.4" = 742g (lightly used)

    USED
    Conti Mtn.King 2.2" = 652g
    Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.25" = 616g
    Maxxis Ignitor = 666g & 674g (highly used)
    Maxxis Crossmark = 638g & 556g (highly used and 1 trimmed)
    WTB Nano = 558 & 606 (highly used and trimmed)

    sweet! keep 'em coming... i'm still updating.
    i didn't use your highly trimmed and highly used numbers for obvious reasons, but they are interesting. i also had to figure your XR1 is expert and not team issue (that was an obvious one). that racing ralph is a snakeskin version? I didn't use it because I didn't know, but no other RR in the sheet is over 600g.
    to all-
    the more info, the better. if i can't verify something, i usually leave the numbers out, which is why i have maintained control over the spreadsheet-- to have some sort of QC on it. I'm also going to add the link to every post I make in here, so it's easier to find. I asked for it to be made a sticky, but didn't make the cut.

    Actually you did, all the stickies are now located above the forums threads so they don't clutter up the first first spaces ;-) That's how I easily found it

    On the RR, it's not Snake Skin - it might weigh a bit more cause I forgot to mention that I tore the sidewall and had to patch and sew it up the XR1 is the normal version, but do have a set of the TLR front and rear sitting in the shop to pick up.

    Two *NEW* IRD(Panaracer) Fire XC Pro 29er

    698gr
    700gr

    EXCELLENT all around trail tires! Seal up tubeless easiy I suggest trying them if you're still looking for a top notch "jack of all trades" tire.

    There are at least 4 versions of the Fast Trak. Which one is it?

    People - post everything written on the side of your tire or on the package about the model. thx

    Here are some more weights.

    New Geax Saguaro 29 x 2.2 folding - 713 and 720

    Used Geax Saguaro 29.2.2 TNT - 790 and 813, the 790 one is a bit worn 80% tread life left.

    Conti Mtn King 29 x 2.4 - Only a few rides, some stans residue left 800 and 796

    I can tell you the TNT Saguaro's have a stiffer sidewall for sure. Currently I just mounted the folding beads on my Stan's flows, right now they are a bit more narrow than the TNT's, will need to see them stretch (I hope).

    Yeah, I think they did. I believe the factory reduced the thickness of the base layer for rubber.

    Eliflap, can you measure the width of those tires mounted on the rim? And can you tell me something about the riding performance? Roll resistance?

    First the weights:

    Specialized Fastrak LK Sworks 2bliss 29x2.00 - 510g and 530g
    WTB Nano Aramid bead, 29x2.1 - 540g and 560g (quite a bit below claimed weight)
    Geax Saguaro Folding 29x2.2 - 690g and 710g

    Alpine Digital Scale, checked against a bike shop's postal scale and against known weights.

    Running them all tubeless. Mostly dry and loose over hardpack conditions, lots of carving corners with some sand, gravel, and rolling over rocks. All on a dos-niner softail.

    Briefly, I find the Fastrak's sketchy on 26", but are surprisingly better on a 29". They do not roll great on road/true hardback compared to the others, but they roll really nice on everything else dirt. Big volume for a 2.00 tire, the 2.2 Geax is barely more volume.

    Another surprise. The Geax, when aired up to 30+ psi, seem to roll as good or better than any of them. Just got these so as not to wear out the race tires - so still checking them, and cornering so far is not inspiring yet, even at lower pressures.

    The nano's are what you would expect - good directional carving feel, roll nice. But they have limits and get sketchy/loose traction - they seem to give you notice before doing so. Smaller volume than the 2.00 Fastrack. These tires, at least in a 26", do not roll as well in tacky conditions. (obviously not a mud shedder, etc).

    The first of my two Racing Ralph EVO 29x2.25's....

    523g (and that includes the rubber band )





    And here is #2

    534g





    and yes, they are both 29 x 2.25 EVO Racing Ralphs




    I guess I lucked out considering some of the posted weights for some of the Ralphs above


    In any case, I'm stoked on these... they were just take-offs from a Crossmax 29/Racing Ralph combo I bought from a shop on a whim... Tubes inside weighed 177/180g respectively... which I ditched of course will be running Stans...

    geez... talk about variation!

    I must have gotten really lucky with my 29x2.25 Ralphs (523 & 534)...

    How's the Ron ride? I heard they have great traction, especially on the front...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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

    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!

    So the range so far is 715g from the poster above you... and 639g from yours... jeeeez... talk about HUGE tolerance on those...

    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...

    PS - go TUBELESS bro!!!!

    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?

    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.

    I shall also note that they setup tubeless extremely easy using xxx lite wheels and stan's juice. Have not tried them yet let me know if you'd like a ride report.

    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

    Where did you source the XC AT? I'm having issues locating any. I believe they are discontinued, so has been a challenge finding any.

    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)

    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.
