Hi all!
I'm riding a 2021 Fuel EX 9.8, with stock XR4 29X2.4 tires F+R.
I consider swapping the front for the XR5 team issue.
Did anyone try both XR5 29X2.5 and 29X2.6 to tell the difference?

BTW, according to Trek website the 29X2.6 is 970g compared to the new 29X2.5 at 1,000g.
Isn't that weird? It makes sense that the wider tire would be heavier but it's the opposite...

Thx, Mo

i noticed some differences in size on the 2019 27.5 x 2.6" xr4 vs 2021 29er 2.4" xr4. the 2.4" was nearly as wide as the 2.6". it showed little size diff to the xr4 2.6" on the front of the bike. still team edition

basically im just saying the manufacturers seem to constantly tweak their tire designs. they dont always bragg about why either.
