Schwalbe Rocket Ron 26 Performance
This is the cheaper Performance Line tyre which has the same pattern as the Evolution line but is not a triple compound tyre.The Rocket Ron is a new race tyre from Schwalbe - light and fast, slightly more bite than a Ralph but just as fast!
Use front and rear, or on the front with a Ralph on the back!
Schwalbe say :-
Rocket Ron is a new MTB racer and a super-light (410 grams) competition rocket with astonishing grip. In May ’08 Sabine Spitz rode the rocket to her European title championship success in St. Wendel.
„This Rocket fulfills racers’ wishes all at once: Low weight and a lot of grip – both straight-line power and traction in curves - and it works just as well in wet or dry conditions. The lugs are widely spaced and provide a great self-cleaning action as with Racing Ralph“, said Schwalbe technician, Markus Hachmeyer. In order to achieve these seemingly opposing characteristics Schwalbe equipped its MTB-Racer with a lot of technical finesse such as: 127 EPI EVO carcass, Triple Nano Compound and bitingly efficient U-Blocks. Schwalbe positioned its new MTB-Racer amongst its two most popular MTB competition tires of the past few years: The grippy Nobby Nic and the fast Racing Ralph. Rocket Ron has a more prominent profile than Racing Ralph, but nonetheless rolls just as easily. Above all: Rocket Ron is an out and out competition tire, so puncture resistance and durability are limited.
