Schwalbe Racing Ralph 29" Evo Tire

Schwalbe Racing Ralph 29" Evo Tire

The Racing Ralph is lightweight and features a unique tread pattern that has gathered fans from around the world. The Racing Ralph is fast due to the off- center central tire pattern. This design allows you to reach high speeds but doesn’t skimp on grip. The side knobs provide excellent traction while cornering, but aren’t too aggressive, therefore the bike is still agile.

  • Wheel Size: 29”

230 pound 6'3" rider, 1 flat in 2 seasons
I have about 1200 miles on these and plan to replace back tire next year. Only had one flat and it was my fault hitting a huge root uphill and with major force coming out of a creek bed. I'm not sure why there are bad reviews above. I don't run tubeless so that might help. Tires are on a Giant Anthem X 29er. There are two versiopns of this tire and the cheaper one seems to be consistently poor. I've had nothing but good luck with these and I'm traditionally a Continental Fan.

PROS: Lightweight, Attractive Design, Easy To Install, Durable

Fast, now with more grip at 1.35'
I had Rocket Rons at 2.25" aggressive, but this is faster and with the added width, about as much grip. Haven't ripped a Snake Skin sidewall yet, haven't even flatted.

PROS: Lightweight

BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Racing

unable to seat tubeless without air comp
this is a great tire with tons of grip. it lasts long enough. it's durable enough for a front tire but I did shred one on the rear. My one complaint is that I was unable to seat the bead without an air compressor. I gave up after 30 min and went to my LBS.

PROS: Lightweight, Fast And Smooth Ride, Great Traction

CONS: Difficult To Install

BEST USES: Racing, Front Tire

Fantastic XC Race Tire
These tires roll fast, spin up quick and are pretty sticky on all the trails I've ridden in the mid-west. I even rode one on the rear for a week in Moab. That said, they are basically a race day tire. It says as much on Schwalbes website, so don't expect them to survive sharp rocks. They are designed for speed, not durability.

Fast and light xc tire
Ive tried all 3 sizes and I have been happy with all of them. They roll fast, corner well, and are very light weight for 29" tires. They do pretty good on loose over hard pack, but they excel on socal hard pack.

PROS: Brakes Well, Lightweight, Easy To Install, Corners Well, Roll Fast

CONS: Expensive, Thin Sidewalls

BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Xc Hard Pack

Great race tire
I've gotten some pinch flats even with stans. For an XC race tire thats light they grip fantastically. They just wear fast. In about 500 miles I have a few holes on the treadside and a few small ones on the sidewall. One hole is to big to fill with stans. For race tires they are great.

PROS: Traction, Cornering

CONS: Thin Sidewalls, Wear fast

BEST USES: XC, Race

Excellent clean trail tire
These are my favorite racing tire for courses that don't have a lot of sharp rocks. Excellent on the East Coast terrain. Grips great on the high speed corners and rolls fast. Unfortunately, once I left the course and used them to ride my favorite rocky local trails they basically fell apart. Like others said the sidewalls are paper thin.

PROS: Easy To Install, Lightweight

CONS: Weak Sidewalls

BEST USES: Racing, Mountain Biking

Very Fragile
I ride 3-5 Times a week in the dry rocky conditions around Phoenix AZ and it just destroyed this tire. They worked fairly well on dry kitty-litter consistency soil and even handled themselves in muddy conditions. After about 100 miles on my front and rear set, I have put a fatal tear in the rear's sidewall, and the front has lost most turning capability in hard pack and pavement due to corner nobbies are ripping (which is common with schwalbe tires) I've already had a set of Nobby Nics and did not care for them. These are also very expensive for the quality of the product

PROS: Easy Bead Set, Lightweight, Fast Rolling

CONS: Expensive, Cornering Nobbies Rip, Thin Sidewalls

BEST USES: Racing, Mountain Biking
