Product Description

The tire development goal was to combine the best of Racing Ralph and Furious Fred. At less than 400 g, the weight is almost exactly in the middle. With its many small lugs Thunder Burt is close on the heels of Racing Ralph regarding grip and in terms of rolling resistance its even better than Furious Fred.

Strengths:    Light

Weaknesses:    Not strong, even with SnakeSkin. Not any more tubeless ready than a non-tubeless ready tire, extremely narrow.

Bottom Line:   
I looked at this tire cause I wanted a fast tire that was really light. I heard there were problems with punctures, so I bought the SnakeSkin version. I was also excited cause it was tubeless. So, first off, I tried to get the tire to inflate tubeless... The beed is not like a tubeless tire... Its loose. And even harder to inflate than a non-tubless ready tire! Secondly the rubber is not strong even with snake skin. 20 minutes into my FIRST ride it was punctured...
Third, I was VERY narrow! I have ridden 2.1 tires and this thing is not 2.1....
