The perfect racer. Profile, compound, carcass. In the third generation of the Racing Ralph everything is designed for speed. In the 29” variant the special arrangement of the blocks and their elongation have been adapted to the longer footprint. Performance advantages of the large wheels are optimally improved.

These are great tyres if you can get them on - light and great all round grip, but these are almost impossible to get on the rim.
I punctured three tubes, broke 2 supposedly unbreakable Pedro's tyre levers and scratched my rims trying to get one of these on to my front wheel. The bead is just too tight and forget about running tubeless, the sidewalls are way too thin/soft. I'm assuming poor quality control as I can't believe this would be common given my experiences with the 26" Snakeskin Ralphs.
Finally got them on, but I shudder to think what I'll do if/when I get a puncture.
I'll be going with Maxxis or Conti's once these are done, or maybe wait until they release these in Snakeskin as well.

Only just got it, but corners and rolls well. Only tried on front. Seems quite aggresive for a ralph. Thats not a complaint.
