mine was 491g
The casing is the same than the RR, so don't expect to be hard against rocks...
but they are the best allaround tire I've tried in 15 years riding

So far RR were surprisingly durable for me - in the rear under my fat ass and over local rocks. It ain't no downhill tire, but nevertheless..

This is a 2.1" Schwalbe that actually is 2.1". Most of their tires are a little smaller than claimed.

Just received my 2.1 nobby NIC 514 grams( I got the heavy one)

casing width 45.95mm

Tread width 49.10mm wide set of knobs, 46.08mm narrow set

closer to a 1.9 tire is a 2.1 54x559 mounted ona stans 355 ZTR rim

So for the size it not that light definitly will need a 2.25 or 2.4 in size, I will try to get a ride report out after the weekend!

I guess I got one right on spec, Schwalbe claims the 2.25 NN weighs 570 grs., so I guess they are right ;)

Cheers,

i had the opportunity to weigh LOTS of tires at the swiss Schwalbe distributor. see the weights of the lightest ones i picked below. in ( ) you see weights of tires i got delieverd last year. the differences are HUGE to say the least. i found differences up to 80g in tires of the same size!!!

Nobby Nic 1.8": 394 ( 413, 437, 443)
Nobby Nic 2.1": 447, 462 (507, 515, 524)
Racing Ralph 2.1": 452, 462
Racing Ralph 2.25": 476
