Schwalbe Rapid Rob 29x2.25
I'm trying to do a fair review of this tire. Will it ourperform a tire costing 3X as much? Probably not. But, for $50/pair, you'd be hard pressed to find something better. This is a very nice tire with a well thought out tread design that works well in hard packed on my HT XC bike. It was on my bike when I got it and it's fine for what it is. Not as grippy as some of the more expensive tires with dual compounds, etc, but again, $25ea. For someone on a budget...ride this all day long and have fun. It won't be nearly as fragile as the expensive race tires.
