Blast off!

Combining speed and corner control at the highest level, the Schwalbe Rocket Ron Addix 27.5 Plus Tire delivers incredible grip with extremely low weight and rolling resistance. Its Addix Speed compound is more than capable of handling varied terrain and multiple surfaces, while its additional width enhances volume for even more traction and control. Then, the SnakeSkin sidewall protection helps defends against slashes and debris on the trail, while the open-design tread keeps you moving fast, sheds mud, and provides grip when you need it.

  • Lightweight, speedy XC tire designed to handle all terrain
  • Addix Speed compound has low rolling resistance and durability
  • Open-design of treads provides fast speed and self-cleaning
  • Plus-size width adds float, traction, and control

Great, but loud and fragile.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Have ridden two of these to death as a rear tire on my all-mountain, hardtail 97+ mullet. The first one, pre-Addix, lasted about a year. The 2nd one, with Addix, last almost two years (see picture).

I ride mostly Appalachian rooty, rocky trails, and compete in a few endurance XC races every year.



Because I'm a cheapskate, I ride any tire probably 6 months past when I should change it.



This tire grips well, in all kinds of weather and terrain (I've taken my bike (with this tire on the rear) to Montana for a few rides.) It does particularly well in wet roots. But I ride maybe 10 miles of pavement to get to the trails and it's comical how loud this tire is.



Also, even the Addix version tends to wear out "too" quickly. The side knobs are torn in half before the center-tread is half-worn. And... both tires I've had, have burped flat more than a few times each--which is always extremely annoying--and a little dangerous.



So, yesterday, I switched to a Maxxis Ikon, 2.8. I can already say that the Maxxis airs up easier, and is a lot quieter and smoother on the road. But... I've read it sucks on wet roots. We'll see, come Autumn. I may have to return to the 'fragile, loud and grippy' Rocket Ron 2.8.

Great, but loud and fragile.

tire is light and has great grip, knobby enoughin 2.8 on my + bike. not that durable though. I've thrashed a few less than a month after purchase.

Hey Luke - Did you thrash these Rocket Ron's with the new Addix compound? Or the older Rocket Ron's?

Addix, just thrashed another one with lots of tread left, time for something new.
