Pros & Cons
Pros & Cons
- Easily converted to tubeless with Schwalbe's Tubeless Easy system.
- The Addix Speedgrip compound makes this tyre suited for XC, All Mountain, and Trail mtb disciplines.
- The Rocket Ron focuses on a goof balance between rolling resistance, puncture resistance, and durability.
- The SnakeSkin adds a tad more weight than the LiteSkin version.
The Addix compound has managed to crack the ordinary trade off between wear, rolling resistance, and grip. This is a dilemma which has occupied the cycling tyre industry for years. Normally, they’d have to sacrifice one of these traits to improve the others, but no longer. Schwalbe has raised the bar even further when it comes to performance and quality with Addix. Not just for XC-racing use, but for all mountain biking disciplines, which all have their own specific needs and demands. For that reason, there are no less than 4 different versions of this compound type available.
This type of compound has a light blue line running along the length of the tyre. The Speedgrip compound is by far the most versatile, and suitable for disciplines like XC, All-Mountain, and Trails. The durability has been improved by 62% over its predecessor, the PaceStar compound, and grip has been enhanced by 35%.
Tubeless Easy. Snakeskin
Schwalbe is a firm believer: tubeless is the tyre technology of the future. The Snakeskin fabric in the sidewall of the tyre makes the tubeless conversion for the mountain bike extremely easy, light and safe. At the same time the fabric provides the best protection against cuts in the sidewall. Snakeskin is combined with the PaceStar and Trailstar compounds.
Too hard to get on the wheel (1)

A great tyre. Highly recommended.
Tubeless set up was easy as the tyre sits really well onto the rim. Grip is excellent for the cycling I do.
Good All Round Tyre
Grips well in most condition Very stable and predictable in corners. Not the easiest to install tubeless but holds well when on.
Almost impossible to get on and off
It's a good tyre, if you can get it on. I managed this at home in the dry, but on the trail I had a puncture and couldn't get the tyre back on without destroying my tube with the tyre levers... I've been cycling for a long long time and never had such a stubborn tyre. It's so bad in this respect that I'm going to switch from Schwalbe as I can't afford to be in this position on remote trails. Fortunately today it was only a three mile hike back to the car...

Great rear tyre
Really easy to fit tubeless. Excellent trail grip (dry to damp) and low rolling resistance.
