    No worries here. The sidewalls felt about the same as an S-works tire, but I only weigh 155. I also ride in the SF Bay Area where we don't have sharp rocks and I don't do drops over 3 feet. If I'm going to ride a gnarly trail I'll take the Nomad.

    Everyone is different on tires. My wife and I have been running Schwalbe Evo for racing tires almost exclusively for the past 3 seasons and have never had a flat due to a sidewall issue.... it's always been through the tread. But, if we were racing in more rocky areas, we'd probably switch to the Snakeskin for at least some of the events.

    Tubed or tubeless? I was more talking tubeless, which I guess they're not designed for, just was so amazed when my RR slashed and I could actually see how thick the sidewall wasn't. I've stitched/patched it back up and it could be used with a tube, but traction was never great on anything but totally dry anyways

    I don't know if they have been posted yet and I don't intend reading the entire thread to find out. I just got a pair of Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.25 tubeless ready 29 tires. The website claims 650g. but I weighed one of mine at 711g.

    The new RR are tubeless ready. You couldn't pay me to go back to tubes. I know they're thin and that's the price you pay for super light tires. With my weight and riding conditions I'm willing to give them a shot.

    Holy crap, now you mention it in the first pic I can see the tubeless ready text. I'd say that's quite impressive for a TLR tyre, depending on actual volume of course. Wonder when they'll wise up and start to offer the Black Chilli compound, as the compound on the RR I had sucked in anything but dry.

    "LyNx", now you have me confused. The RR is a Schwalbe tire. Black Chili is a Continental priority compound.

    Schwalbe's got me confused too, as apparently you can get Tubeless Ready in either EVO or Snakeskin casing?
    Looks like they're all PaceStar (3c), don't know if that's new or just a new name.

    This from the Schwalbe website:

    "Triple Nano-Compound. Naturally with our best rubber mixture for top performance grip and rolling resistance."

    EVO for:
    "Evolution Line - Description: The very best possible. Highest grade materials. Latest technology."

    "SnakeSkin - Description: A light and flexible carcass makes the tire highly resistant to scrubbing."

    "PaceStar - Description: Triple Star Compound:
    Our best and most sophisticated compound. Triple compound. Perfectly adapted to the specific purpose.

    Sounds like a lot of advertising to me but if my Nobby Nics are as good as the Specialized Purgatory 2Bliss they will replace, I'll be happy. They will be the first Schwalbe tires I've tried.

    "TL Ready - Description: Together with a tire sealant you can make these tires tubeless."

    Just a fat, butyl bead. That is exactly the point. I started using "Tubeless Ready" on UST rims on 26" wheels and found them to be just as reliable as UST tires. I've seen one too many standard tubeless conversion fail. The "Tubeless Ready" bead locks up really tight on my Stan's Flow rims. Even deflated I have to push hard to get the beads out of the rim.

    Ooops, yup, you're right, 2 brands I got confused because IMHO they won't do soft enough compounds. Hoping the new Mtn.King will have Black Chilli as an option, want seomthing nice and soft for the front on our mossy rocks. Would love to try the Specs you mention, but I just hate them too much to ever give them one red cent.

    Well, that doesn't help much, as that describes all of their tires.
    I guess with all the other manufacturers advertising their tubeless ready systems as including some sort of sidewall protection, I was confused by Schwalbe offering Tubeless Ready in both EXO & Snakeskin. AFAIK they are the only mfr doing this, and they just started for 2011.

    Not so. I'm no expert but from what I can see from the Schwalbe site most models come in different combinations, some with Snake Skin others without. Then there is the likes of the Rocket Ron with the following comment:

    "Out and out competition tire! Puncture protection and durability are limited."

    While there are several different sizes and widths, some tubeless others not. There is no mention of Snake Skin.

    In my experience other manufacturers also do this too. Specialized have several models that come as Control 2Bliss (read thicker) sidewalls and also S-Works 2Bliss with very thin sidewalls and I guess are meant for racing.

    No, no, EXO (Exo-Protection) is Maxxis (reinforced sidewalls). EVO (Evolution something or other) is Schwalbe. Don't add to the confusion!

    A couple years ago a Schwalbe rep told me that using any sealant other than their Doc Blue voids the warranty on their tires, and they pointed to this as a reason why I was losing knobs on my UST Albert tire after just a few weeks. Do they still recommend against Stans sealant?

    That's called UTTER BS and dodging a proper warranty claim, that's what that is, just like the Big Betty's loosing their knobs running tubes, NOT A FVCK TO DO WITH SEALANT.

    Specialized Eskar2 Control 29x2.3 2bliss, one was 830g, one was 810g, no pkging. Not a huge volume tire, but I have a Dos Niner so the clearance back there is limited. This tire fit well, fyi.

    Just mounted a couple 29x2.25 TL Ready Racing Ralphs w/ Snakeskin sidewalls today, 675 and 700g.

    While I'm at it, also recently weighed a 29x2.2 AKA (TNT version) at 730g, 29x2.25 TL SS Nobby Nic at 700, and a normal folding (for tubed use) Geax Saguaro 29x2.2 at 700g.

    I've got a pair of Maxxis Beavers here in 29x2.0

    They came in at 503g and 498g

    They look to be relatively narrow for a 2.0 (par for the course it seems) which will be good for a mud tyre. I haven't mounted them up just yet, and hopefully I won't have to for another few months - got them as a "just in case" set.

    I just picked a pair of Stan's Ravens 2.0" tires. The claimed weight on the box is 500g, the actual weights are; 439g, and 469g. I'm running them tubless on my Dos Niner.

    Do people subtract or tare the Scale to account for the weight of the rubber band I see in alot of these photos. I'm sure relatively insignificant in terms of actual weight, but if you're going full weenie and weigh things, you might as well do it right and maintain credibility.

    Same link. I'm still actively maintaining the spreadsheet, so any time you click the link you are viewing the most recent version. I think a couple of dingbats have ripped it off and started messing with it, but I haven't sen that they posted it publicly.

    Yes, and the sidewalls are thicker and stiffer then the Fast Track Controls I weighed. I thought my scale was a little off until the Specialized tires came in higher then what their weight was listed at.

    i don't include weights that include packaging. if i see it in the photo, it gets left out. i have included weights with the rubber bands because 1) they're insignificant and within the tire manufacturing variances, and 2) it's hard to lay a new tire on a non-hanging scale without one.
    used tires are also left out for the most part.
    i reserve the right to break these rules if i feel like it.

    peoples-
    help a brotha out and post up the FULL tire info, even if you think everybody knows it, and if your tire doesn't appear in the spreadsheet, the claimed weight would be very helpful.
    thanks,
    mgmt

    SPREADSHEET LINK
    I'm also adding it to my sig so it's easier to find.

    For whatever reason the 29x2.0 fast trak lk controls do not have their weight on the website anymore but they were previously listed at 600.

    The Swork captains have the weight on the website list as

    •29" x 2.0; psi 3565; approx. weight 595g
    •29" x 2.2; psi 3565; approx. weight 665g

    Schwalbe Rocket Ron 2.25" TLR Pacestar compound 525gr.

    I guess I got lucky! Schwalbe says TLR should have added 30gr, but this one is on pre-2011 'EVO' weight.

    Sure, but on average, even the old ones were heavier than that. Schwalbe predicted a 30gr increase in weight because of the TLR-ness, although they never altered their claimed weights on the Ron's. I am just happy they are really light and TLR. The tire aired up easily with a floorpump by the way. A few pinholes sealed and it seemed ready to go. Let's see if there is still air in it in the morning.

    P.s. I did leave the rubber band on the tire .

    Just got a WTB Moto Raptor 2.1 for $13 shipped from ebay, never used. Will have to run to the post office to get a weight.

    Well here it is and by my calculations that is just shy of 530grams!

    How are the "non exo" durability so far? I plan do get the ikon front and rear for race/training. Any input vs. the "exo" version?

    can't answer your question specifically, but was changing a flat last night and felt a brand new crossmark 120tpi next to my Exo Ikon and the ikon felt 2x as thick. good for a clyde like myself.

    i like the sub 600gram maxxis tires with the Exo.

    My new Race Kings are heavier as well. 3 previous pairs weighed between 620 and 660 grams but the new pair are both 690. Don't care though, as these are my favorite tire. Roll as fast as Racing Ralphs but corner much better. Triangular intermediate knobs really grip. Tread wear is great. The knobs are close enough together to give the tread good puncture resistant properties. Tall profile allows for lower pressures. Racing tire performance without the paper thin sidewalls. And priced right.

    I have these mounted on Haven's, a 21mm wide rim, and they still look more like a CROSS tire than a mtn bike tire! Stan's sealant and about 30psi....time will tell.

    I will try these in perfect race conditions and see how they feel, but I think a bigger front will win out.

    The 26 x 2.4 Ardent is a very different tire than the 29 x 2.4. I ordered a set of 26 x 2.4 for my AM bike because I like the 29 x 2.4 on my SS bike so much, but when I got them they turned out to be a much more aggressive tread. The center and side knobs are way bigger, and the transition knobs are smaller. And they weigh in around ~830g.

    My 2.9 x 2.4 weighs somewhere around 825g. I can't remember the exact number.

    Ever tried GEAX Saguaros ? I switched from Saguaros to Race Kings (tubeless) and like everything about the Race Kings except moderately less traction on hardpack than my Saguaros had. This seems stupid to say, I know, but the Continentals are a seriously good-looking tire (large, two-color printing on the sidewalls)...

    I'm gonna miss me when I'm gone.

    I actually have the Saguaros, although they're the heavy tnt version. I'm right there with you about the traction difference, though it seems minimal, and agree about the good looks of the RK. I've thought of getting the non TNT version of the Saguaros since they grip well and also can usually be found at a good price. I wonder though if the volume is as good as theTNT version and the weight. Any info you have would be great. They're both just so much better than the RR as far as cornering and the RK just rolls so stinking good with the oval profile and tread pattern.

    Hope the extra weight is in the sidewalls, the 2.4 certainly feels beefy.

    Guess I did not get that lucky after all... this one died on me. The sidewall could not cope with the encounter with a brake disc of a 'fellow' competitor.



    Ordered a new one, TLR Pacestar ... 593 gram. Dang. Oh well, guess it will seal a bit easier and it does not make the tire much less attractive to me.

    My Maxxis Ignitor came in at 635g and the Crossmark it replaced was 623g. Still keeping the Crossmark on the rear of my Tallboy though...

    A question for melting feather... Is the Google Documents Tire Weight Spreadsheet editable by anyone, or only you. I found it handy, but was going to add these numbers myself and couldn't.

    Thanks to all who are contributing!

    The spreadsheet is getting more and more popular... I think adding a link to my sig helped. Every time I open it up now there are 7-10 people viewing it!

    meltingfeather, putting the spreadsheet in your sig definately helped.

    kenda sb8 2.1 563g
    specialized renegade 1.95 control 559g

    kind of a bummer i thought the i would have lost more weight but my kenda is on the light said and renegade on the heavy so it ended up being a wash in the end. oh well hopefully the renegade rolls faster and grips better.

    i was curious so i took the front tire off and weighed that one.

    kenda sb8 626g

    that more than a 60g difference which if you care about weight even a little is pretty huge in my book. might be worth having the guy in the store weighing a tire before you buy a sb8

    Two Maxxis Aspen 29 X 2.1 eXCeption 535g and 548g.

    The lighter one would not seal with Stans. The sealant was leaking all over from the sidewalls and the tread.

    1 of them aired up on a flow with a hand pump and seems to hold pressure well. After I put sealant in there were no pin holes or bead leaks noticeable.

    Edit: They setup pretty easily with Stans (Stans liquid on 355's). I undercharged the rear tire with fluid but still got it sealed. Took a few hours but they are holding air and they inflated with a floor pump!

    I agree great tire - I'm running 2.4 tubeless on Stans arch, performance is great but this tire loses air after a few days/week sitting. No burping, pinhole leaks or weaping just gets soft while my rear on same rim (Crossmark 2.1) holds much longer.

    I've since found the claimed weight on page 32 of the Maxxis catalogue for the Beaver 2.0 EXC, which is 490g. So a little bit out but still very light.

    Thats pretty disappointing for a company as reputable as Schwable. Not to mention the 50% + more they charge over 90% of other tires on the market...

    I really hope my NN's dont come in that high when they arrive.

    I do have 2 other Racing Ralph 29 x 2.25 Snake Skin TR that i weighted at 680g and 690g. Their quality control seems very poor which is why they have such a wide weight variation. I have another friend who measured a whole bunch of his tires and his low ones were 630g and the high ones were 670g.

    Yup, i agree. Very dissapointed as well. Its not like you can go to the store and weight them and take the lightest ones either. You pay a premium for light tires and they should match up to their claim. Everything i have gotten from Notubes has been at or below advertised weight. Very impressed with Notubes.

    Could you also put in standard deviation column? That will give us an idea of how close we might be to the avg weight. It also shows how good or bad the manufacture's quality control.

    done as a test run.
    i'm going to look at the numbers a bit and see if i think it's valuable overall.

    you have to be careful with the "quality control" assessment, as the widely varying sample size will skew the comparison.

    for those that don't know, what the standard deviation means is that ~70% of the tires reported were within +/- 1 standard deviation of the mean (average). a low standard deviation means you're more likely to get a tire closer to the average.

    you have to be careful with the "quality control" assessment, as the widely varying sample size will skew the comparison.

    for those that don't know, what the standard deviation means is that ~70% of the tires reported were within +/- 1 standard deviation of the mean (average). a low standard deviation means you're more likely to get a tire closer to the average.
    thanks for the update. Interesting. For the tires that have more than 4 data points, the standard deviation seems to provide some useful information. Its interesting that all schwalbe tires are fairly consistent in SD. I would have expected them to have more spread than other brands. I guess most tire manufacturers have about the same spread in tire weights. Very interesting.

    This ongoing thread is one, if not THE most helpful on MTBR.
    melting feather,
    Your google doc spreadsheet rocks. Have wondered if it's possible to attain/provide tire specs on actual tread width, and true tire volume? For consistency, measurements would need to be based on a "control" rim of X width . In the past, mtbrtirespecs.com (Shiggy's) website had this data, which I found most useful. Yet it has been idle now for 2 years to become largely outdated.

    Interested in your reply, as this info really helps to narrow tire selections, and avoid wasting $$ on tires we know we don't want.
    Thanks, FW

    thanks for the compliment, and glad it is of help to you.
    i have thought about adding measured widths to the spreadsheet, but haven't come up with a reliable way to do it on a large scale.
    i did talk with a guy from 918XC about collaborating on my spreadsheet and adding some more info, but i guess they forgot about it or decided it wasn't worth it, as the air went dead one day and i haven't heard another thing from them.

    The intesting thing about the Maxxlite 285 and MaxxLite 29 is that they will not weigh more than their listed weight (285g for the MaxxLite 285, and 345g for the MaxxLite 29). This requires a very high level of QC on the tread extrusion. So chances are that any MaxxLite tire you buy will be a few grams under the listed weight.

    I really need a good tire for the Crusher in the Tushers in Utah. It is a mix of pavement and fire road. The podium last year was filled by CX bikes. Sounds like the Maxxlite could be it. Bholwell, don't you also have AMClassic Race wheels? How do the Maxxlites work on them?

    Yep, I have an AC Race 29 wheelset, but I've only mounted an Ignitor and an Ikon. The Maxxlite 29 should work fine on the wheelset. It might be hard to get the beads seated, and the rim will definitely add volume to the tire, widening the sidewalls.

    Sorry I can't mount one for you; I'm in Taiwan at the moment.

    My LBS says that QBP doesn't even show the Maxxlite 29er tires as available for purchase. They also said $112 MSRP. Maxxis is on crack.

    Conti X-King 29x2.4 - 784 g.
    [Revised post]
    Basic foldable version
    Non UST, non Protection, non Supersonic, non Racesport.

    No manufacturer's spec that I can find. Strangely, this size does not seem to be shown anywhere at conti-online.com
    Specs there show only 29x2.2=700g and 26x2.4=640g

    Also, my initial measurements suggest the casing width can be expected to be about be about 3mm wider than a Race King 29x2.2 when mounted on the same rim.

    Hutchinson Toro 2.15" tubeless

    In order to fill a gap in the spreadsheet, the claimed weight for this tyre is 750g.

    Great job everyone - this is very useful. Hopefully manufacturers will eventually take notice and will (i) stop bull$h!tting us, and/or (ii) step up their quality control...

    meltingfeather -

    Have you thought about quantifying the range of weights for a particular tire?

    It would be easy in the speadsheet - just insert a column, and type in the formula for Standard Deviation followed by the range in brackets (use a range that will cover all data points for one tire).

    Then in a second column you would divide this by the average weight, and show in % for the level of variation. The lower the % the better the manufacturer quality control.

    Then just copy both of these down the page for all the different tires.

    Easy... and useful.

    (Just a suggestion... )

    you are not the first to ask about this and there is actually a hidden column with standard deviations of the data sets for each tire. i hid it because the information is not that useful. some tires were consistently over the claimed weigh but had small st. dev. others had higher st. dev. but were on average closer to claims.
    careful what you wish for... if you want tighter grouping on tire weights, you'd better be prepared to pay much more for tires. all costs are passed along.

    Conti X-King 29 x 2.2 Race Sport 507g & 512g

    Pretty keen to see how these go - first black chilli tyre I've tried. So far they're back to the bad old days of Conti tyres, where the 2.2 is closer to a 2.0, but I'll give them a measure after they've been left to sit overnight.

    Erm, I was told the 29er xking doesn't come in black chili compound as they're made in asia (not Germany). Does your tire actually SAY black chili? It's a point of contention as I'm also in the market for either 29x2.2 Xkings or Maxxis Ikons.

    I just bought a 29 x 2.2 Black Chili X-King at the LBS about 1/2 hour ago. It was the only thing they had, besides Nevegals, Blok 8s and some streetish tires.

    I am going to try it tonight on the rear, replacing the pathetic Rocket Ron,and I will let you know how it goes.

    It weighs 680 grams.

    The front is a Panaracer Rampage, that I would marry if I could.

    Another cheap alternative to exspensive tires.

    Rapid robs 29x2.25 with some sort of puncture protection

    Advertised at 790g weigh in at 660g with about 250km and still looking new. They have the old ralph tread and sell for 30.00 us.

    Cant beat them for the price. They are not so good on wet roots and mud.
