Look for a new set of 29er tires… large volume and fast rolling light weight. the only thing that I can find that fits the bill are the Racing Ralphs 2.4’s does anyone else have suggestion or there experience’s

If you ride on hard pack, or even loose over hard the RR will be a great tire, I run one of the front of my rigid and love it.

Sorry, I was going to recommend the RR 2.4. Seems to be in a league of its own at the moment.

The Maxxis Ikons are pretty wide for a 2.2 tire. They are pretty light at the EXC model (520g) and are fast and have a lot of grip, but I am not sure if there is much for a 2.4ish that is light, maybe something by GEAX.

Schwalbe big apple 29er at 2.35" width, tubeless, on Stans Flow wheels. Rolls nice. I call it "The Road Warrior" a la mad max.

No actual knowledge, but if it is anything like the Mountain King 2.4 it may be a little underwhelming as far as volume is concerned.

are you running tubeless?? In the reviews I posted above, they did mention that with tubes they were narrow, but after tubless they widened out nicely. They also mentioned the taller profile/high volume.

I ran 2.2 MK's on my 26" for a while and really loved them.

I am running the RK 2.2 tubeless and it is a little more full than those I have seen running tubed, but it is closer in size to my 2.1 Crossmark than my 2.25 RaRa. WAY smaller than my 2.4 RaRa.

I ran WTB Weirwolf 2.55 all last summer and loved it. Althought it's not truly 2.55, its still very large volume. Fast middle tread and grippy sides. Not sure on the weight tho.

I ran it with tubes all summer, and am mounting it to a new set of Stan's Crest tubeless this spring. I am very interested to see the difference in ride quality and volume.

How could there be anything lighter/faster/grippier/bigger with more volume then thw 2.55LT? :thumbsup: For the right time of year and conditions of course. :D

Grip, perhaps not, but the RR 2.4 is most definitely lifghter, faster, and bigger than the WW 2.55.
