    Ritchey Shield

    Plus super easy and reliable to set up tubeless. Mine lost about a psi/week.

    Try that with a RaceKing SS.

    Schwalbe Racing Ralph Evo 2.25 Pacestar Double Defense TLE >>> 697g (675 claimed)



    EDIT: I was a bit surprised by this actually. I was hoping - like the Nobby Nic DD - that it would be lighter than advertised... not heavier! 40g in the difference is disappointing. I suspect the carcass is actually the same as the Nobby and that the only real difference is the tread.

    Let's hope it makes up for itself by being noticeably faster rolling!

    WTB Weirwolf TCS 29x2.3, listed weight on WTB's website is 780g. The two I bought:

    Tire 1: 720g
    Tire 2: 733g

    Very pleasantly surprised. I am coming from Kenda Honey Badger XC Pro SCT 29x2.05, listed weight of 645g, actual weight was 657g and 648g. I am very happy that a quarter inch wider tire and notably more aggressive tread pattern adds such a modest weight penalty.

    Thanks for posting, and interesting to see both well below the mfg claimed weight. (For some reason many are way-way higher.)

    Love the those tires, but they are heavy.

    Looks like you may have grabbed the advert weight for a 27.5.
    Onza says 700g for the 29er.

    Friendly reminder to all:
    You're likely wasting yours and others' time if you make incomplete submissions. Keeping up with this is a task, especially if I have to try and figure out what each tire is because not all specs are listed.

    Schwalbe Thunder Burt 29x2.25 Snakeskin advertised at 575g, mine came in at 635g. Pretty disappointing margin of error for a racing tire.

    I was thinking about taking my racing ralph off and putting the thunder burt on for the rolling resistance on a 6hr race but I may leave the ralph on since the burt is so much heavier.

    Clamied 540(some claim 530) not sure on the age as they came off mt 13' vertex

    So going through the posts, it looks like Conti has the best record for consistancy (if not coming in under claimed) really surprised by schwalbe specs being all ove the place.

    29er tire weight list

    Two more samples of Onza Canis 29x2.25 C3 120 RC2 Tubeless Ready: 627g and 643g.

    This is my second time around with Onza Canis and this tire has incredible grip and durability. I put those tires through the TSEpic without a single scratch plus a couple of marathons trough very rocky terrain. Consider this...exactly one year ago on Onza Canis I won the same race I flatted yesterday with Race King Protection's...

    The grip from the Canis really is surprising. However I think the bead is a little weak: It's the only tyre I've ever managed to tear completely off the rear rim. I wasn't running silly pressures either, about 28psi on a Ryde Trace XC (21mm internal width).

    I pulled them off at that point and went Schwalbe, but I'd be tempted to try again on the front, as they're quite light for the volume and seem to roll well for the level of grip offered.

    Canis up front, Thunder Burt out back could be a really nice 'hedging your bets' setup.

    Ikon 29x2.35 exo 3c TR - 700g, 740g (claimed 740g).

    These are impressive tires, mounted and aired up much like a ust tire. I installed the heaviest one on the rear, thinking it might be more durable.

    New Maxxis Ikon 29x2.0 (non EXO): 554g. (560g claimed)

    Best 29er race tire I've tried for Southern Cal conditions. I have the 27.5x2.2 on my trail bike. Love the fact that both bikes now have same tires.

    Pump up tubeless with no problem. It need sealant to hold on air, 80 ml of Stan's is OK.
    It goes really fast, like Conti Race King Race Sport, but more slippery when wet

    Most tires vary some in weight. My Ikon 2.35 3c EXO was 735g out of the package. My Nobby Nic 2.35 SS Trail Star was 750g. My Ardent 2.4 EXO DC was 805g on the nose.
    Function in disaster, finish in style.

    I bought the Schwalbe Big One 29 x 2.35 SnakeSkin TL-Easy tires because the LiteSkin version leaked like a sieve through numerous pin-sized holes. The SnakeSkins are supposed to be tubeless, but without tire sealant, they leak really bad also. Inflate to 45lbs before ride and only 17lbs remain at end of ride. I have never added tire sealant to my Chupacabras in over a year of riding and they still only lose 1lb/day on my Derby rims.

    I bought these latex tubes to use in combination with the LiteSkins. 130+440=570g < 574g & 587g SnakeSkins. Will report back in future on the performance of this combo.

    8/20 Report:
    So far/so good! Inflated to 45lb with no noticeable air loss over couple hours of riding, although they did lose 4lbs after sitting for a day.

    8/28 Report:
    Lost 8lbs after sitting for 3 days (45-37).


    4x Michelin AirComp Latex 26x2.2
    claim = 130g

    The weight of the heaviest one just isn't acceptable, IMO. I've been lucky with my 27.5x2.1 Thunder Burt LiteSkins. Both of them were just 2-4 grams different from stated weight, if I remember correctly. The mass isn't evenly distributed though. And the main problem is not the valve stems btw (apart from their 4 gram weight of course), before anyone asks.

    Maxxis:

    Ikon 3C EXC 2.2, 566 grams, advertised 595 grams.

    Ardent Race 3C EXO TR 2.35, 731 grams, advertised 745 grams.

    BTW, I got the Ikon as a door prize. It is not designated tubeless ready, but it mounted and sealed to a Stan's Crest just fine.

    Any new rolly, grippy & tough tyres going on the scales?

    Ideally I'd like something bang inbetween a racing ralph and a nobby nic (on all fronts: rolling, weight, grip, toughness)

    My two tires were 680 grams and 660 grams so 670 grams would be an average per tire. Fairly lite for the large volume size they are.

    Tire was very airtight without sealant so I don't mind the extra weight.

    What? Not just one, but 2 Schwalbe tires under claimed weight? Impossible!

    [In all seriousness, I suspect a scale issue.]

    Ha! Yep, not picking on Schwalbe by any means as all manufacturers seem to overstate their weights.

    I think I've mentioned this before, but I still don't understand how this is such an inexact process - and in some cases the tires are significantly off. They use the same amount of liquid "goop" for each tire, yet there's this random element. Weird.

    Thx - very timely video. I'm even more confused now as to why the weights very so much - the process is even more precise than I imagined.

    Determined to find a light Nobby Nic 2.25 Snakeskin I ordered a few more:

    1. 735.3
    2. 737.9
    3. 740.1
    4. 750.7

    Still no luck. I give up.

    I couldn't give up on the Nobby Nic... ordered from a new supplier:

    NN 2.25 Snakeskin Pacestar (710g claimed):
    1. 683g
    2. 689g

    !!! So light ones do exist !!!
    It's absolutely insane that I've personally weighed these tyres with 67g swing. Maybe the new compounds will have better tolerances?

    Got some Rocket Rons too ...

    RR 2.25 Snakeskin Pacestar (610g claimed):
    1. 634g
    2. 638g

    Both lighter than my last one!

    Happy with that lot.

    FWIW the Continental X-King Protection 2.2 is an utterly dreadful tyre. It looks and feels like plastic. Even at dangerously low pressures for me (rear @ 24psi) it felt very harsh - worse than Schwalbe Double Defence - and seemed to roll worse than DD's too, with no noticeable grip advantage over a Racing Ralph. It leaked sealant through the sidewalls too. Maybe it might last for ages, or be totally bullet proof, but I'll never know because I just couldn't wait to get it off the bike.

    New RaRa Addix speed 29x2.25's.
    You couldn't have this happen if you tried but both of mine weighed exactly the same! I even tried tricking the scale with other tires in between.

    (part number/sku)
    11600251.03 57-622 (29 x 2.25 ) SnakeSkin, TL Easy Addix Speed

    Claimed weight 630g
    Both of mine were 638g dead on the money.

    Also I put some calipers on them. I have the older enve XC 29 rims. They are narrow as #$%^. My 2.2 specialized fast traks would come in at 1.99. These rara come in at 2.11 which is damn good for how narrow these xc29 rims make tires. On a more modern rim I am sure they will measure to 2.25 or even more.

    Ordered them directly from schwalbe via my LBS. You can order them now straight from Schwalbe.

    I personally don't notice any difference between previous rara's. I'd say at the same PSI these feel a "little" softer in the since of more plush. Not like softer as in the same psi I am not dinging my rims.

    I am more interested in their supposed "longer life". I always liked rara's but at their price and literally the side knobs would tear after about 3-4 rides I just couldn't keep on buying them. I had switched to specialized s works tires because they were so light and nice tpi and great value. Now that they don't make s works any more and their new tires are big turds, i've gone back to try rara's. Spesh dropped the ball with their new "gripton" version of their tires. They are literally 250g heavier than previous fast traks and only 60tpi now.

    I'll let you know after a few weeks of riding these. These are on my race tires so they wont see that much use, but if it looks like they really addressed their durability issues then I'll start putting these on my training wheelset.

    I got it from planet cyclery via ebay.

    2017 Schwalbe Nobby Nic EVO 29x2.60 PaceStar PSC TLE SnakeSkin 2.6 Tubeless Easy

    SKU: TIR2507-418

    I bought a couple earlier this year from Germany that were 810 and 790 grams. I saw the Addix version coming and wanted another that was more in the 800g range... but 736? It has me worried that they left out some parts.

    wow - if it has all its lugs, a bead, and is generally opaque in nature, you might be able to flip that one for more $$! 120g is nothing to sneeze at.

    ONZA Canis 29x2.25 Skinwall:

    Front = 670g
    Rear = 668g

    Do not run this tire below 20psi. It actually performs best between 29-34psi. Looks like Racing Ralph.... grips like Ikon 2.35." Skinwall casing feels supple like a 120tpi one. Very fast on straights even rock gardens. Dry loose conditions is where this baby shines. My legs are loving it again. Get the Nino retro 90s look, without going full Dugast sew-ups.

    Panaracer Fat B Nimble 29x3.0

    Factory Specs are: 29×3.00 / 76-622/ Folding / 765g

    My weights for two: 737g /739g

    I measure the casing width (new tire) to be about 62.5mm @ 40 psi or about 60.5mm @ 16 psi mounted with tube on i24 rims. These are MUCH smaller than their designation - which is good or bad depending on what one is looking for. Essentially, they are a true 2.4 to 2.5ish width.

    For future reference, thought I'd post this here. I randomly came across this site that measures rolling resistance across several tire brands:
    https://www.bicyclerollingresistance.com/

    If you are shopping for tires, you may be interested in this data, in addition to posted weights.

    Pity Schwalbe's ADDIX Speed compound is SLOWER than the old Pacestar compound (according to bicyclerollingresistance.com tests), which is contrary to the company's claims. They also claimed the ADDIX Speed and Speed Grip has markedly better durability and grip (particularly the Speed Grip version), but those claims must be brought into question after the failure of their claims about lower rolling resistance. I had high hopes, but will now find it hard to trust the company again.

    Well, here's something to consider:

    A very slightly slower rolling tire can be faster overall than a faster rolling tire if it grips better in turns.

    I mean, I know that I'm faster overall on NN 2.25/RaRa 2.25 than RaRa front and rear, despite the RaRa rolling faster.

    Generally speaking comparing the same sizes and types, which are lighter, the Schwalbe Racing Ralph’s or the Maxxis Ikon ?

    2.35 Ikon, 2.4 Ardent

    Not sure what the advertised weight is but don't mind a little extra. Less sealant is required for the thicker ones so it evens out. 706, 887 gm.

    Four Vittoria Mezcal 29x2.25" G+ TNT tyres.
    Website says they should be ~710g, on the package label it says 690g. Considering all Mezcal weights I've seen the website weight is probably more correct baseline.

    1) 752g (+42g)
    2) 748g (+38g)
    3) 738g (+28g)
    4) 733g (+23g)

    RaRa addix speed (liteskin) 29x2.25
    574g and 576g.
    claimed is 560 so close enough.

    Just a 1 yr review of the longterm use of this new addix speed compound. If you scroll back a year ago you can see where I had bought the (snake skin) version of the same tires. I can 100% for sure say that the new compound last and last a very long time. I cannot say if they grip the same to me as they grip just like old RaRa's IMO. However, the old pacestar rara's would literally start to lose the side knobs for me in about 4 rides. They were way too expensive to be going thru them that fast so I had switched to specialized tires. Anyways, the addix compound for sure last. Matter of fact I just put these new ones on after a whole year of riding the addix snake skins.

    These liteskins feel much better compared to the snakeskins. They are way more supple. They actually remind me of the old s works compound and feel which makes sense because they nabbed that guy up from specialized to help make rara better. Now I will say...The liteskins took a bit to get them to stay sealed. You had to put sealant in and leave them on their sides over night and air them up again in the morning and do thi s for about 48hrs till they finally sealed and stayed that way. As a race day tire I am pretty good to start just using these. I just ran them at Marathon MTB Nationals and they made it. I saw TONS of flats at this event too. Most from what I could see seemed to be vittoria. I did puncture on some bombing descent, but it eventually sealed and I was able to hit it with some co2 and keep going.

    So there you have it. I personally like the new addix compound as far as it truly living up to "lasting longer". They do.

    Hope that helps.29er tire weight list-img_20180428_175311.jpg

    Doing the opposite.
    Bought the RaRa Lightskins six months ago (29x2.10 rear/29x2.25 front): best tires I've ever had. But for the love of God I could never keep them inflated for more than a couple of hours. I tried everything: different sealants, resting sideways overnight, more sealant (so much in fact that the weight advantage was completely negated).
    I took a chance (I know they are not TR) and perhaps I just got unlucky with my pair but out of frustration I just ordered a couple of snakeskins. Hopefully they'll give me a similar ride without the headache.

As a race day tire I am pretty good to start just using these. I just ran them at Marathon MTB Nationals and they made it. I saw TONS of flats at this event too. Most from what I could see seemed to be vittoria. I did puncture on some bombing descent, but it eventually sealed and I was able to hit it with some co2 and keep going.

    So there you have it. I personally like the new addix compound as far as it truly living up to "lasting longer". They do.

    Hope that helps.Click image for larger version.

    I agree with your findings. The addix Speed compound deifinitely lasts longer than the PaceStar compound.
    Also Vittoria G+ tyre require Stans Race sealant to plug the puncture quickly or any sealant thas more viscous or has larger particles in the mix to plug the . It takes at least 10 x as many rpm of the wheel to seal the puncture with cnventional Stans and G+ tyre. They roll fantastically well though.
    My favurite overall marathon tyre combo currently is Rocket Ron front and Racing Ralph rear and Barzo front, Mezcal/Saguaro rear. For hardpack i go RaRa front and back in speed compound or Mezcal front and back.

    The Rocket Ron combo also works very well in mud at 2.0-2.2bar

    Both significantly lower than claimed? Were they handpicked? If not, go to Vegas now.

    Hitchinson Gila 29x2.1: claimed 660g, actual 660g.
    Interestingly, this one measures just under 2.25" (I thought I had purchased a 2.25 but received a 2.1). Surprise!

    Specialized Fast Trak 29x2.3 Gripton: claimed 640g. Actual 700g for two tires. At least they are consistently porky.

    Forte Pisgah II 29x2.3. I believe claimed is 805. One was 810, the other 780. The 780 tire was noticeably thin in a few spots.

    Maxxis DHF 29x2.3 Dual: claimed 925. Actual 1025! Triple checked scale calibration (Cuisinart balance scale).

    Why not just go Rocket Ron at both ends instead of Racing Ralph on the back?

    LOL... Maxxis weights and/or scales calibration all over the place.

    I just weighed an Ikon 29, 2.35" (same version as posted) at 745grs
    A DHRII 29X2.35 weighed at 833grs

    Mind you, mine came very close to claimed weights.
    Bontragers and Maxxis have came close to claimed weights for me in the last 4-3yrs.

    I guess I got lucky then, cause I use my Rock Razor 29x2.35 as my XC tire, and I would be bummed if it was heavy.

    Bontrager XR5 29x2.6 Team Issue. Sure was hoping it would fall on the light side of the spectrum, but not so lucky. Still, 1000 is about 40g lighter than my DHR 2.5, and we'll see how she rolls.

    Accidentally ordered Vittoria Mezcal TLR XC-Race 29x2.25 tyres with weaker sidewalls (brown sidewalls, product code 11A.00.036):

    687g and 702g - rather close to spec weight of 690g

    And then I corrected my mistake and ordered Vittoria Mezcal TNT XC-Trail 29x2.25 tyres with proper battle-proof sidewalls:

    715g and 727g - also close to the spec weight of 725g

    Those new XC-Trail tyres are easier to mount than ones I got 2 years ago.

    Schwalbe Ralph Ray 29x2.35, Snakeskin, Addix Speed, TLE, 710g (claimed 770g)

    This is the 2020 (?) version. Heavier than expected since the Ray I have in same size was 655g.... but even at 710, it’s well under the claimed 770g.

    Claimed 770g makes no sense considering the Nobby Nic 2.35 is 765g claimed and isn’t considered a race tire like the Ralph is.

    I recently had a 2020 Magic Mary soft trail tire and claimed is 885g and it weighed closer to 985g. A possible misprint, because no way it was made 100g heavier.

    29er tire weight list

    It’s what is shown on Scwalbe’s site (the euro one as the u.s. site doesn’t show weights). I’m not the one claiming it.

    It would make more sense if it was 670 claimed. Their 2.25 Ray & Ralph show 625g claimed.

    I know they are listed as such and was saying Schwalbe’s site make no sense when a racing tire is listed weighing more than a trail tire. Your actual listed is more like it for what the tire was built for.
