Schwalbe Jumbo Jim 26" Tire

Schwalbe Jumbo Jim 26" Tire

Not fat. Jumbo.

If you’re going to pedal around in the soft stuff, be it sand or snow, large volume tires are the only way to go. Sure “large” will get the job done, but why not go JUMBO. The German tire giant, Schwalbe, has thrown us fat riders a little gift. The Jumbo Jim 26 inch tire packs in all the high end technologies of Schwalbes more race oriented tires, making them some of the lightest and top performing lumps of rubber you can wrap your rims with. The Liteskin, 4.0 version of this thing comes in under 1000 grams. Add to that some Pacestar rubber, a lightweight casing, a well-designed tread pattern, and you’ve hit fat tire pay-dirt. I mean pay-snow. Err…pay-sand. Available in 4.0 and 4.8 widths and in Liteskin or Snakeskin casings.

Easy tubeless jumbo
Getting the jumbo Jim tires on the fat by grooms was an easy task... Getting them seated on the rim however required a seriously large volume of air. A regular floor pump did not work, the electrical compressor at the gas station did not work..... Only the large volume compressor at the tire dealer had enough air volume to seat the bead.
Overall..... Pretty easy, a heads up as to the amount of air volume necessary to have them seated would have been handy.

Schwalbe Jumbo Jim 4.0
Definitely the lightest Fat Bike tire I have had. Mounted right up tubeless. Sidewalls are very thick but I don't have enough rides on them yet to comment on durability. So far I would recommend.

Super fast with tons of traction and plenty of flotation
I use this as my front tire and it works great. Plenty of grip in the corners. The larger outside knobs allow you to really layover in the corners for superior handling. The sidewall construction allows you to ride the rougher, rockier terrain without worrying about sidewall puncture's. The tire is really light weight as well. Even though Schwalbe is saving weight by saving on the number of treads, this tire corners better than the Specialized Ground Controls that I was using prior. Important to note: The 4.8" was too wide for the rear chain stay of my 2014 Fatboy. I experienced rubbing when under heavy load, while climbing. Would be great if Schwalbe would release a 4.6" version of the Jumbo Jim because the 4.0" is too skinny for my liking.

PROS: Rugged, Handles Well, Lightweight, Smooth Ride

BEST USES: Single Track, Cross Country

Best light weight Fat Bike tire
This is a very good fat bike tire. It is the lightest for its size, and it has very good volume. The tread is fairly minimal and is wearing quickly. It will likely only last 1 season of riding. Used it in Moad, it worked great but wear was quick heavy.

Great Tires
I mounted the 4.0 Jumbo Jim Snakeskins on my Mukluk to go tubeless & get a faster tire. Very happy with them - set up with Cafelatex fat tubeless rim strips & Cafelatex sealant. Both tires seated well & hold air for weeks without reinlfation. No flats in 150 miles and I'm in New Mexico - land of the goat heads. I really like these tires.

Great float, supple side wall and relatively light
I got the 4.8 lightskin version. The thread pattern is very similar to the Specialized Ground Control 4.6 but is between 200 and 300 grams lighter. You can really feel that difference. The width is about almost exactly the same as the 4.6 Ground Control. On the negative side, one of the tire weight was exactly as advertised (1190 grams) but the other one was 1280 grams. I know they disclose this potential weight variation but it seems a bit high to me. Tested the tires on dirt, hard snow and very soft snow. Less auto-steer than Ground Control but very similar feel otherwise. I would buy this tire again.

The site says 4.4 snakeskin. Is this an actual size, or are they 4.8 snakeskin?
Matthew R on Jul 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As far as I know the Jumbo Jim comes in 4.0 and 4.8. I purchased the 4.8 and that is what it says on the sidewalls.
