    Replacement for Ralph

    2.4" Schwalbe Racing Ralph is my favorite rear tire for my trail bike. Recently went to buy a new one to find they have been redesigned and no longer come in 2.4". I'm looking for suggestions on something that'll have similar performance and volume.

    I have used Ikons in the past but the Ralph is much more supple and has much better braking performance. X- King seemed nice but came home after the first ride with less knobs then it left with. Saguaro is an old fave but doesn't come wide enough.

    The older Racing Ralph tread pattern (HS 425) is available in 2.35" width for 29" wheels. I was told they renamed 2.4 to 2.35 to be more accurate, but that the actual size is the same (I've never compared myself).
