Schwalbe Rock Razor 26" Tire

Schwalbe Rock Razor 26" Tire

The Rock Razor is a newer offering from Schwalbe, bringing a semi-slick tread pattern to the world of gravity riding. The low-knob tread pattern in the center drastically reduces rolling resistance while the large knobs on the sides provide enough traction to ensure confidence when cornering on a fast, steep switchback. The Rock Razor is a unique offering, especially for the rear wheel – this leaves plenty of grip and control up front without feeling like your rear tire is dragging you down. The Rock Razor is Tubeless Ready and offered in Schwalbe’s PaceStar or TrailStar compounds with either SnakeSkin or Super Gravity technologies, respectively.

Compounds and Technologies

  • PaceStar: Extremely fast XC compound. Easy rolling base layer (base), Fast center (medium), and Grippy shoulders (medium soft).
  • SnakeSkin: lightweight layer of fabric to protect against sidewall cuts. Perfect for rocky terrain.
  • TrailStar: Enduro & Freeride compound. Easy rolling base layer (base), Grippy center (medium soft), and Extra-grippy shoulders (soft).
  • Super Gravity: New 4 layer carcass construction provides support and protection without adding too much weight. The whole tire (not just the sidewalls) features a layer of SnakeSkin fabric to added protection.

Schwalbe Rock Razor 26" Tires Features

  • PSI: 23-50
  • Tubeless Ready folding bead
  • Designed as a rear tire, not recommended for front wheel use
  • Weight: 870 g (26" Super Gravity)

Great for the desert
I ride 3-4 times a week in the Phoenix desert and these have great grip when cornering but also low rolling resistance. Great combo for speed in the dry rocky conditions here. But even more important for me was the durability/thickness of the sidewalls of the Super Gravity version. I had gone through 9 specialized tires in 9 months for tears that were too big to seal and this seems to finally be the one that will hold up.

Great for dry season
I got this tire to use in late Spring, Summer, and early Fall. I live near Auburn so I bike a lot there on Culvert and Confluence. Up in Tahoe I used it on Corral and the Star Lake Loop. Everything from DG, and hard pack, to clay and some really rocky sections. This tire works great for most of my dry season riding. It rolls easy on the flats and the shoulder digs in nicely in the looser stuff. I'll run it again when it dries out around here.

I also had a hard time mounting this tire, but once I got the bead in the valley of my Deore XT wheel the last part went in easy. If the part of the bead that's already on the tire isn't in the valley you won't be getting it on.

Braking isn't awesome, but that's to be expected. The trade-off for rolling speed and weight was worth it.

I rated 3 stars good value for money.
So far i have found the tires good value for the price. The tread is not as chunky as some tires but gives good grip on rocky, gravelly and sandy trails, also holds grip in wet conditions.

They look nice
Seriously the most difficult mounting tire I've ever tried. I gave up not wanting to damage my carbon rims.

Response from Jenson USA
There are several tricks when a tire/rim combo can be challenging to mount; soapy water on the tire bead, sitting the tires in the sun for a day, and mounting/inflating on another wheel are some tricks to relax the tire a bit.

difficult to mount
looks amazing, was able to install one, but pinched the inner tube so that's a lost cause and the other one was such a challenge i have given up and am hoping to be able to install in summer after leaving it in the sun for a day

Good luck mounting.
I ordered the RR for my rear tire and a MM (Magic Mary) for my front, both 26x2.235 Evolution series. The MM went on without any issues. The RR however never came close. After struggling for over an hour, researching forums for advise, I gave up and took it to my LBS to have it mounted. They struggled with it for 45 minutes without success. I sent it back for a replacement thinking it was a defect. The second tire came 3 days later and the same exact thing happened. Sent that tire back and threw a Maxxis Ignitor right on without a problem.

CONS: Difficult To Install

What is HS452? Super Gravity is the casing. Is HS 452 the compound? How does that compare to Trailstar or Pacestar?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I ordered the one labeled 2.35" Super Gravity Tl-Ready, HS452, and the tire I got had the trailstar compound.
