    onza canis 29 skinwall

    Anyone running the newer version of these yet? The package they came in said 640g with sidewalls that seem to be paper thin, just wondering about their durability. They seem very similar to Schwalbe tires which also had what appeared to be thin sidewalls, yet proved to be very durable.

    I bought the TL ready one at first and couldn't get it to seat on my rims, so I exchanged it for the skinwall version. The Skinwall version seated instantly and was a breeze to mount as well. I have it mounted on the front with an ikon on the rear and will take her on the maiden voyage tomorrow to see how she hooks up.

    How is the Onza Skinwall holding up? What type of terrain you ride? Tubeless still holding well?

    meh.. I took it off as I was tired of it constantly losing air.

    My guess is that the tubeless version would be your best bet if you are wanting to run tubeless and not the folding skinwall version. The tire is a decent rolling tire and when run with lower pressure it really seems to hook up in our desert terrain, but for the price I think there are better tires out there that hook up better and roll a lot faster.

    I'm here in phoenix, az area.
