The Schwalbe Rocket Ron is a lightweight rocket of a tire and your ticket to the moon. Well, maybe just to the podium, either way, this is a fast tire. It is capable of handling varied terrain and surfaces with incredible grip and extremely low rolling resistance. The tread is an open design and is self-cleaning. You've done the training, it's launch time.

The tires were pricey and I was sceptical if they would be much better than early gen Rocket Ron's. Found the walls buckled under usual riding pressure. I increased the pressure and the tire significantly improved overall. It actually rolls and handles better than the older versions to my surprise... The tire actually performs in accordance with what the manufacturer states which is nice for a change. In my opinion, spend a bit more for these tires. It's actually worth it...
Great tire - it is the perfect balance between a light fast rolling tire while still maintaining enough knobby grips for traction. Here is a great tip if you plan to mount tubeless. I had a tough time getting the tire to seal out of the box. I finally mounted the tire with a tube and let it sit overnight. This forced the tire to seat properly. I then dislodged one side of the tire to remove the tube and tried again with Stans. It sealed immediately.

Would like to give this 4 stars, but they seem to tear a little easier than the pacestar. I've seen 3 fairly new ones go down this season. They also came in more narrow than the older version as well. The speed grip did seem a slight bit gripper though.
