Description of Schwalbe Rocket Ron Evolution MTB Folding Tire - 27,5 inch + / 650B+ - 2017
Now as extra wide 650B+ version.
Lift Off! The low weight Rocket Ron 650B+ fulfills many requirements all at the same time: incredible grip with extremely low weight and rolling resistance, with all technical refinements already on board - 127-EPI-Evo carcass (only LiteSkin carcass), PaceStar Triple Compound, excellent self-cleaning, open tread profile.
Schwalbe positioned its MTB-Racer amongst its two most popular MTB competition tires of the past few years: The grippy Nobby Nic and the fast Racing Ralph. Rocket Ron has a more prominent profile than Racing Ralph, but nonetheless rolls just as easily.
PaceStar-Triple-Compound is optimized for MTB Race, All Mountain and Tour. Super-fast compound with a combination of low rolling resistance and durability. The tire shoulders were made appreciably softer to improve handling on rough terrain.
LiteSkin Tires have light, thin sidewalls. Advantages: Weight saving and reduced rolling resistance.
approx. 720 gram (75-584 LiteSkin).
