      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

      For anyone interested, I’ve been running rocket rons on the front and rear of my Raleigh this year. Wrote up my experiences with them here
