    Maxxis Ikon EXO 29x2.2 660g

    Needless to say, I'm not very happy with that number. I don't have any reason to doubt my scale but I'll be weighing it on another scale before I do anything.

    Thats not cool at all. They seem to vary in weight more then any other tire in this thread.

    This is the second report of them coming in really heavy. I would take a tire that much out of spec back. Did you get a 60 tpi version by accident? I wonder if some got mislabeled. Our forum's Maxxis guy should check into this

    Think of it as ust lite... run a little less sealant to make up for the extra weight. I actually prefer the heavier specimens these days as the sidewalls seem more robust for low pressure tubeless use.

    A second scale showed this tire at 645g. I'm not sure which scale is more accurate but as the old saying goes "somewhere in the middle lies the truth." Even at the two scale average of 652g, it's much heavier than advertised. Someone on this forum, possibly from Maxxis, contacted me with a possible resolution. I'll have to keep you posted.

    Sounds like the 60tpi EXO, which I've found to be uber durable on the Ardent 2.4's.
    Anyone know if the Icon a big volume 2.2 like the Saguaro or Race King?

    just a friendly reminder:
    i am more likely to not include data points that have incomplete information, especially continentals.
    also, if your tire isn't already in the spreadsheet, take 30 seconds to find the claimed weight and post that too.

    Maxxis has been very helpful and I ended up sending this Ikon back so they can take a look. The weight I measured exceeded their manufacturing tolerance and the warranty covers that condition. More to follow.....

    Replacement 29x2.2 Ikon EXO received from Maxxis today. There wasn't any explanation for the weight of the first tire but the new tire weighed 590g.

    There is no reason to use the same width 29 tire as you did on your 26 tire. Think volume, multiply the width of your 26 tire by 26/29 to get the width of your 29 tire. You will find the weight or force necessary to bottom out the tire on the rim will be about the same also the tire weights will be about the same.

    Light & Tuff ??

    Any light weights that are thorn resistant? My Specialized S-works FastTraks and Renegades get flats if you look at them funny!

    I am often using meltingfeather's database, so I feel the need to contribute to this thread.
    Good work BTW

    Just for reference sake, included is the effort required to set these up tubeless on Stan's 355 and Crest rims.

    -Bontrager 29-3, 29 x 2.0 Team Issue ( 460gr claimed): 455, 456, 458 .
    Very difficult to set-up tubeless.

    -Geax Barro Race, 29 x 2.0 ( 450gr claimed): 460, 462, 463, 465, 467.
    Easy to set-up tubeless.

    -Schwalbe Furious Fred, 29 x 2.0 TL (335gr claimed): 358, 381
    Easy to set-up tubeless, but suffers pin holes for a week.

    -Kenda Small Block 8, 29 x 2.1 ( 579gr claimed ) : 580, 585
    More than average effort to set-up tubeless.

    -Maxxis Ikon 29 x 2.2, 120tpi version EXC 3C ( 520 claimed): 526, 528 , 530
    Very easy to set-up tubeless.

    -Schwalbe Super Moto 29 x 2.35 ( 690 claimed ) : 674, 681
    Easy to set-up tubeless.

    -Stan's Raven 29 x 2.2 (claimed 530-550gr) : 520 ,525, 530 ( older first production )
    Average effort to set-up tubeless.


    I don't know if a city/touring tire qualifies to be included, but here it is:

    -Schwalbe Marathon Supreme Reflex 50 - 622 ( 28 X 2.0 ), more of a 1.85, ( 645gr claimed ) 581, 595.
    Average effort to set-up tubeless.

    That's 22 tires to add !

    Panaracer Soar

    I just bought 2 panaracer soar 29 x 2.0 folding from LBS with 2.0 printed on the sides of the tire.But it seems that there is no 2.0 only 2.2 width on their site????. Advertised weight is 560 grms for the 2.2.

    1st weigh in at 562 grms
    2nd weigh in at 565 grms

    I guess panaracer is dead spot on the weight but on different size

    I also compared the flatten width from bead to bead of the tire to my Aspen and Ignitor, the Soar is about 2mm narrower.

    Does weight on a 29er tire really matter? I mean the tire is so much bigger than a 26er that trying to save weight seems irrational.

    Wouldn't this seems like a more important discussion if it were a 650b wheel?

    Where are you from? Here in the Philippines there are several LBS that sell Panaracer Soar 29er 2.0's... I also checked the website and did several searches but couldnt find more on these tires. The local shops sell each tire for php 800 pesos or usd equivalent $20

    Regardless of what size tire that is being used, as a rider do you think you would be able to tell the difference between a 550 gram tire and a 1000 gram tire? Remember, it is the tire that is part of the wheel, which is what actually does the moving on a bike. I had a 26er with heavy bomb-proof wheels and heavy tires (Navegals), and my 29er has a much lighter pair of wheels and tires (Charger Pros and Racing Ralphs) and the difference in weight makes such a big difference.

    So in short, irrational it is not. In fact, it is extremely rational!

    It would be irrational to say "well, a 29er tire is bigger anyways, let me just get the heaviest one I can find."

    I'm wondering if the Panaracer Soar 29x2.0 in the Philippines are fakes. I really want to buy a pair because they are cheap, but don't want to suffer in quality in the future. I'm willing to hold out until the 29x2.2 get here.

    Understood, I really didn't think you could get a 29er wheelset that is lighter than a 26er or 650b wheelset. Keeping in mind if you were to use the same components to make the wheelset.

    Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.25 TL-Ready, Snakeskin
    Published weight 605 g
    Actual weight 665 g

    60 g heavier than published weight! I contacted Schwalbe and received this response:

    Hi,

    Published weights are approximate. Schwalbe’s variance on the published weights are +/- 8-11%.

    This is not a warranty issue on this tire.

    Regards,

    gb


    Needless to say I'm pretty disappointed in Schwalbe. Will definitely be looking for another brand.

    Weighed two Continental Trail Kings in 2.4. Published weight is anywhere from 1000 grams to 1100grams, depending upon website. These are the non-protection, made in India tires.

    One tire weighed in at 990 grams; the other weighed in at 1040 grams.

    Weighed a few

    Weighted the following 29 inch tires

    Maxxis Crossmark 29x2.10 UST 820 grams (claimed 835g)

    Schwalbe Rocket Ron Evolution 29x2.25 544 grams (claimed 520g)

    Hutchinson Toro Hardskin 29x2.15 740 grams (claimed 750g)

    Continental Race King Protection 29x2.2 623 grams (claimed 650g)

    Continental X-King Protection 29x2.2 636 grams (claimed 670g)

    All easy to setup tubeless but Rocket Ron and X-King required air compressor while all the oter mounted with el-cheapo hand pump.

    i'm thinking about to order one, but have no weight already.
    I think the weight will be nearly the same as the MK 2 RS.
    i have 2 of them, one is 582 the other 605, claimed weight from Conti: 640
    my estimation for the rq 2.2 RS is about 650, maybe less

    Conti mountain king II folding 29 2.2 advertised 740 g, actual 620 g(!!). Seriously. And it's the base tire, not race, protection or ust.

    Panaracer Driver Pro 29x2.20

    Listed at 590g

    1st tire...609g
    2nd tire...605g

    Would like to add that these were a mother to get seated tubeless on P35's. Had to inflate with a tube to pop the bead in...then pop off one side to remove tube...finally with a bit of soapy water and caressing of the unseated bead...POP POP!

    Vredestein Spotted Cat, tubeless ready version 29x2.0 actual weight 578 grams.

    Claimed weight is 580 grams.

    Really tight fit onto stans crest. Sealed up very easy. Hopefully these won't blister up like ikons. Feels similar to an ikon, maybe a little smaller then ikon though. 2.2 inch wide would be nice.

    Not much time on them yet. I'll edit this if needed.

    WTF - I see some post on here putting the Conti X-kings anywhere from 628 g to 767 g! 140g/tire delta is really hard to believe.

    Indeed, probably different versions. My Xking 2.2 Racesport was somewhere around 550 gram, 2.4 is heavier, also regular and protection version are heavier.

    Yes, there are definitely at least two different versions being listed. The Racesports are much lighter than the Protection. The one that I weighed was not labeled as anything other than X-King, so that makes a third option as well. FWIW, I got my from CRC around the end of the year.

    I haven't mounted them up yet but was planning on it today. I'll do it tubeless on 24mm Giant carbon rims and take a measurement this afternoon or soon after. I'll get you a pic as well.

    the non-labeled Contis are the Non-BCC, mostly used by the OEMs, because they are cheap (made in Taiwan, not Germany)
    The X-King 2.4 racesport has about 680 gramms, the Protection around 100 gramm more.

    additional Information: Rubber queen (trail King) 2.2 Racesport: also 680 gramms,
    All of the 29" Conti Racesport i have(MK, XK, RQ), made no bigger problems on tubeless (on a Pacenti TL28)

    Sorry for the LONG delay. Finally got them mounted up. They just were barely sealed up tubeless so I know it'll stretch a bit but not that much. 1.81 inches. Definitely NOT 2.0.

    Spech. ground control, control casing - 2.3 - 713 actual, 710 claimed.

    Side note - Looks the same size as the 2.1 I've had for a year. Volume sucks for a "2.3".

    The amount of variation is pretty surprising. As a former Q/A and Q/C Engineer, I don't understand why they cannot hold tighter tolerances than that.

    Its rubber not metal, and its press molded, not injected or cut (like plastics and metals)

    I'm aware of that, but they can still control the amount of material they use in each tire, which should keep the weight consistent. It also makes me wonder if the rubber they're using is a consistent density & hardness. Variations of 5-10 grams seem reasonable, but when you see 50 gram differences, that's a lot of extra material in the tire somewhere. It seems that the manufacturing tolerances on MTB tires are pretty lax.

    The variation in weight is primarily caused by the amount of rubber in the tire. A small amount of variation is in the amount of rubber calendared into the fabric, and the majority of variation in the extruded tread compound.

    Variation at the extruder is related to the viscosity of the compound (which is due to variation in raw materials), temperature, head pressure, belt speed, and other factors. There are things one can do to reduce the variation, but they aren't cheap. Tread that falls out of spec must be scrapped or reworked. Reworking a lot of tread that contains two or three different compounds isn't possible.

    Take the Maxxis Maxxlite 285 and 29. These are guaranteed to be at or below the advertised weight. Every piece of green tread must be weighed, every green tire must be weighed, and every cured tire is weighed. But the majority of the added cost comes from the amount of tread that is out of tolerance and must be scrapped.

    Anyhow, the point I'm trying to make is that reducing weight variation at the extruder is an expensive undertaking. So the manufacturer has to weigh the ROI against the expense.

    Another Continental Race King ProTection 29x2.2: 615 grams.

    Pretty close to the 603 grams of the first one I got. Purchased at different places, so likely different runs.

    Thanks for the details; that explains a lot. I guess it's good to know that any excess weight is in the tread where at least it's useful, rather than having dead weight somewhere else.

    Useful? Well, it slightly improves puncture resistance at the expense of rolling resistance.

    Re: 29er tire weight list

    Maxxis Ikon 29 x 2.35 EXO, non-tubeless ready: 684 g

    Much less than the advertised 760 g :thumbup:. Been running one on the front since this summer and like it very well - love the width and volume and predictable traction as it is leaned over.

    Just put one on the rear, too, replacing a 29 x 2.2 EXO to add some cush to my HT. Only have a couple rides in, but so far the 2.35 has taken the edge off the trail chatter nicely. Will have a better idea after a few longer rides, but the improved comfort seems worth the modest weight increase.

    Maxxis High Roller 2.3 EXO/TR - 945 grams w/some stans residue

    No photo, but the tire came in at 947 grams with a bit of stans, but who's counting. Took it off after 3 rides. May use again in the high mountains.

    Measured 789 grams
    Width as measured with digital calipers is only 2.1" after half day at 35psi, and a good 4 hour ride. Wish it were the full 2.25", but 2.1" isn't egregious.

    No info on any Vee tires? I'm specifically interested in the Fluid 2.35 and the Crown R 2.3. I've done a search, and basically come up empty handed.

    This thread was great, until I got home and weighed things.

    Maxxis IKON 2.2 3C exo tr - 649 (advertised is 605)
    Maxxis Ardent Race 2.2 3C exo tr - 770 (advertised 720)

    Clearly coming to Australia makes them fat. Wish I knew why.

    Skinny tires may win XC races, but who cares about XC races. Ride it faster, ride it more.

    After reading a dozen or so pages... it looks like Schwalbe are sand baggin when it comes to their weights, to up sales ^^ lawsuit, anyone?

    Conti's look to be most honest of the bunch (or just better QC?)

    Was thinking of getting a 15' NN 29x2.35 Evo, SS, Pacestar - but if it's going to be 70-100g overweight I might have to try Conti MK 2.4 Pro+BC!?

    Spesh tires look ok also (weight wise) maybe a Purg Grid 2.3?

    Oh the choices o_0 tis why I have a tire fetish =)

    Best way to combat that is to return tires that are grossly overweight. Enough pushback from retailers should move the needle.

    ^Actually I prefer the heavier ones, they seem to have less porous sidewalls when used tubeless.

    I rode one and it was a very good rear tire for the tread depth on it. It rolls great and has good traction for all but deeper mud and loose fall leafs and such. Off camber traction is very good and it is outstanding on wet stuff. Very good rubber compound. For reference I ride in the WV high mountains around Canaan Valley (wet and rocky). Only reason I replaced it was the very small volume and I wanted some more sidewall protection (although for a light tire I had no issue with it; it just made me think too much about it). Weight on mine was 570g (after being used with Stans, probably lighter when new). It is way better that my Rocket Ron, Racing Ralph and Small Bock 8. With it on the back and a Ritchey Z-Max evolution (630) up front you can not go wrong. If my bike had a little higher BB I would still be running this combo but constant pedal strikes have me on high volume 2.4's now.

    Wow, unusual to see them under claimed, especially both. Go to Las Vegas now and bet something, 'cause you're on a lucky streak.

    Bet you can't tell from last 5 posts I'm searching for the elusive perfect tire good for both race training and race day. I liked the Thunder Burts and Bdontragers, but the tread wore quickly. The Contis are on deck, and look very enticing. I'm in So Cal, so until El Nino hits, things are dry, hard, and dusty.

    Maybe tire makers are discovering "under promise, over deliver."

    Yes, but i see 730 grams on few sites so its little more close, anyway it's great tire and looks very durable, far more then Schwable, Conti. I will post 2xPhyton top 29' model here till end of the year or next year.
