NOTE: This is a new and unused item. However, it may lack its original packaging.

Schwalbe Rapid Rob 29" Niner Branded Tire NO PCKG

The Rapid Rob picks up right where the Racing Ralph left off - providing a fast-rolling tire that grips on almost any surface. A slight variation on the Racing Ralph with slightly longer side knobs and slightly larger center knobs, Rapid Rob is a more versatile tread pattern for mixed surfaces. TRapid Rob has XC racing in its blood. This design begs for high speeds without having to skimp on the grip. The center knobs are short for low rolling-resistance while the side knobs provide excellent traction while cornering, however aren’t too aggressive, keeping the tire light and agile. Most importantly, this tire uses Schwalbe's top-of-the-line Evolution casing and tubeless ready design for maximum performance. Throw a pair of these on and go chase some KOMs!

Please Note: This tire is branded with Niner logos on the label, but it is a Schwalbe tire all the same. Throw it on your bike and shred the trails!

Running up front on Full Rigid SS. Perfect!
I've been running Schwalbe Racing Ralphs for about 6-9 months on hard pack with occasional loose and rocky sections of N. Georgia. After wearing the treads off the rear I moved the front 2.3 Ralph to the back and put this 2.4 Rob up front, in hopes to soften the impact of the rigid front fork, on my Specialized Crave SL. Jenson had a great deal on this "no package" Rapid Rob so I couldn't resist. Less than half of the cost of one of the Ralphs.

I'm 160 lbs and have been riding and racing for almost 20 years, so I put these tires to the test. Due to the Rigid front fork and my weight, I typically run these a little lower pressure (18 lbs) than someone would with a shock, but I'm continuing to set new PRs, since the switch. Definitely more confidence inspiring in the turns.

Pros: Light, Corners and Grabs great on Med-Hard surface, Tracks well in rock gardens, Fast with Low Rolling Resistance.

Cons: Doesn't tend to grab as well in the loose stuff. Not a big deal, but worth noting. If running tubeless, they tend to sweat out the Stans fluid (very slow) and you tend to get little tiny moisture bubbles and wet splotches on the tire. I typically lose around 2-3 pounds of pressure in a 24-48hr period. But if you're a regular rider you probably check your pressure before every ride anyway.

Spectacular deal
Have ran them for about 50miles and they are fast rolling. The most surprising thing is how light they are. It could be the rims I have, but the reason I knocked off one star is because the 2.4 width runs narrower than I expected. The price/deal is hard to beat.
