New Tyres For Sale: Schwalbe Racing Ralph Evolution UST 26 x 2.25

I bought these excellent tyres with the most recent CRC group buy. They are great and live up to the fame (lowest rolling resistance, excellent traction on local trails) - but I need wider style tyres for my Enduro. I've ordered these in size 26 x 2.25 to replace the 2.3's Spesh Enduro Pro (baggy) on my AM bike. These 2008 RR's 2.25's are narrower, more like 2.1's (fast!) and would be excellent for any XC-style competition bike (great for Sparrow Hill...)

Details: 26 x 2.25 Racing Ralph 2008 Evolution, Tubeless, Triple Nano compound, 30-55 psi, reinforced sidewalls, Weight 650 g (can be used with tubes as well)

LBS price = $ 199 for the pair, I paid $ 135 on CRC. Practically new - ridden once! Make me an offer... Eye-wink

"The most successful competition tire. We made it even more merciless – lower weight, lower rolling resistance, better grip. It slices through terrain with its ‘sharkstooth’ U-Blocks that make it grip much more aggressively, particularly in curves."

"BIKE Magazine Tire Test 04/2008
“Schwalbe’s Racing Ralph sets the benchmark. The brand-new Tubeless variant achieves the lowest ever value of 19,8 Watts, measured by BIKE, with even better durability in comparison to its predecessor.”

Cheers, Hans
