Schwalbe’s Rocket Ron 27.5in Tire lets you choose your flavor of fast. Do you want speedy with a little extra durability for smashing through pointy descents, or do you want light and hyper speedy for milking every second out of long climbs and smooth singletrack? If it’s the former you’re into, you’ll want to mount up the SnakeSkin option, which has a tougher sidewall to resist blowouts and can be easily run tubeless. If you want all-out speed, you’ll be better suited to the LiteSkin, which rolls faster and weighs a claimed 60g less per tire than the SnakeSkin. Both options use Schwalbe’s hard and grippy PaceStar triple-compound rubber, and feature fast-rolling center ramps along with angled edge knobs that let you lay your bike over into corners and navigate tight switchbacks with precision.
