The Schwalbe Racing Ralph EvoTubeless Ready 29'er tire is probably the most popular choice among racers and those who like to ride fast and in control because it balances great traction in a wide variety of conditions and excellent air retention/reliability all at a low 535gram listed or 555gram actual weight. This non Snake Skin version saves serious weight at the expense of a slightly less durable sidewall.
Schwalbe uses their Pacestar triple rubber compound with the softer compound on the sides to really grip in hard cornering. The square tread blocks are a touch less aggressive than the Rocket Rons but deliver almost the same bite in a faster rolling tire. One unique feature on the tread block is a V groove in each block. This siping allows the tread to conform over the trail for a distinct grip advantage over non-siped tires. Knob spacing is fairly wide making the Racing Ralph ideal for virtually any trail conditions.
This Racing Ralph is tubeless ready so you can run lower pressures without the fear of pinch flats. Racing Ralphs are one of best sealing tires and a snap to install. Just use with your favorite sealant.
