I’m looking at upgrading the Kenda Havok Sport tires that came on my Raleigh Tokul 3. Has anyone ridden Rocket Ron 2.8s? I would likely be running them tubeless so any feedback on trouble with tubeless setup would be appreciated.
I’m running a 2.8 rr on the rear of my current steed, tubeless. Paired with a nobby nic 2.8 up front, also tubeless. Absolutely love this combo. RR’s roll great with solid traction to boot. However, the more aggressive NN on front inspires a lot of cornering confidence for me. I run 18-20 lbs usually. Lower pressures felt super plush and grippy, but I didn’t like the noticeable increase in rolling resistance.
I ran f+r rocket rons tubeless on my previous bike. 29er, 2.2. They also were pretty good to me, but never felt confident on the front in corners. Granted, I ran relatively high pressures for tubeless at 22lbs
