Excellent rolling resistance... thats about it

This is an awesome tire, light, and fast rolling... BUT only if you are riding dry groomed hardpack or well grommed forest roads, otherwise the tire is basically useless for reall all mountain.

Wet, muddy, loamy, rocky, or sandy trails are just too much for this tire, in such conditions it looses traction and grip.

Pros: Rolls better than anything in the right well grommed trails and conditions

Cons: - poor grip
- poor traction in basically all conditions, but hardpack and forestal roads

Like all Schwalbe tires, this one mounted up very easily and quickly. It sealed straight away, and has held air well since. Using it on the rear. Grip is good, and it rolls well, which are 2 of the 3 reasons I bought this tire. BUT, the 3rd reason - weight - was not so good. It weighed 610g, which was a lot more than advertised, and also heavier than the Nobby Nic it replaced which was 600g.

Pros: good grip and low rolling resistance.

Cons: weighed more than advertised.

Great singlespeed tire

The 2.4 is an awesome high volume & fast (& light) tire for a singlespeed front. It's also held up well to rocky trails around Boulder.

Pros: Light, high volume, tough sidewalls, fast rolling

Cons: Not great in mud
Pricey

Do you race against yourself or others?

Do you ever find yourself on a race-course...or do you ever clock your own times on familiar courses?

If so, this might be the tire for you.

Schwalbe tires have a great reputation. They're very light, they run true to size (width), and when used in tubeless applications they seal easily and hold air.

Their only weakness is they're not the most durable tire around, but what do you expect for a 500g tire (sub-500 in some sizes)?

I prefer running these as a rear tire, but for an endurance event I'd consider a 2.25 RR front and 2.1 RR rear. Otherwise, it's a 2.25 rear and perhaps a Nobby Nic 2.4 front for me.

Pros: Good tread pattern.
Very low weight.
Runs true to size -- a 2.25 IS a 2.25.

Cons: They're pricier than other tires, but the performance is worth it.
As a general tire, it might only last you one season.
