        Comments about Schwalbe Racing Ralph HS 425 Tire:

        I had been running Kenda Excavators on my all mountain hardtail, both front and back, but decided to try a Schwalbe Racing Ralph on the rear. So far, I have been impressed by the results. It seems to me like my bike has better traction in loose dirt when climbing and rolls faster going downhill. The smaller knobs seem to really grip in the loose stuff.

        The other reason I decided to try this tire was I have Schwalbe Hans Damfs on my other bike and have had really good luck with them lasting long and resisting punctures, so I thought to try the tire most like the Excavator from Schwalbe to see if their rubber actually wears longer and resists punctures better. Since I just got this tire, it is too soon to make any claims but the better performance makes this a worthwhile reason to switch.

        Only bad thing is the Schwalbe Racing Ralph's are more expensive.

          Solid rough XC, to All Mtn tire. Not going to be a great DH tire. Rolls ok, but lack of ramped knobs slows it compared to others in the class.
