I got 4 of these tires. The weights were:Simonster said:Do you have an actual weight on these?
Can you order just the sub 600 gram ones????sperky said:I got 4 of these tires. The weights were:
580g, 585g, 620g, 635g - so a fairly big variance
I also got 2 of the Karma 1.9's which are supposed to be in the 500g range. Mine 604g and 608g.
Cloxxki said:A century of rubber bike tire technology, and has weight variance ever been worse at the highest quality level?For the Karma, I've read ~460g reports as well as this 608g one. I do not think it's the scales.
I took off my original Karma 29 I purchased last March (but not mounted until a month ago) and it came in at 515g.grrrah said:I haven't read the reports, but the 460 grams sounds like the 26" versions (karma).
Unless you're after lowest rolling resistance for racing, I'd put the heavier one in back for better pinch flat (and puncture) protection. I suppose the lighter one in front might marginally quicken handling too, as Cloxx mentioned.sperky said:I'm thinking I should put a light one in the front and heavier one in the back (maybe it will offer more pinch protection)....or does it not really matter?
That would be 440g! Within +/- 5g of my WormDrives. And yes, for those that don't remember the thread, that is for the 29" version. Picked up 3 thorn flats in a month with that tire.Cloxxki said:For the Karma, I've read ~460g reports as well as this 608g one.
Yes, but it'll cost you +/-40 more.midget said:Can you order just the sub 600 gram ones????
Maybe it's a poor assumption on my part, but my take was it would be very similar to it's 26" counterpart (fast, hardpack only, kiss your ass goodbye in loose) mixed with Cloxxki's +10% rule (add 10% to pro's, subtract 10% for con's ).francois said:I got 10 pairs on my doorstep and 4 of them weigh 530 grams. NOT!
Ok, someone mount this tire and go outside and take a decent photo. How big is it compared to other tires. What's this tires supposed to be good at anyway. Not mud right?
Closely spaced knobs...
- low rolling resistance?
