Real racers always want to improve by getting better and faster. Result: We radically revised Racing Ralph for the second time - with PaceStar Compound and a completely modified profile. Also the hard numbers show how ambitious we were: RACING. In addition the modified profile and PaceStar compound provide even better control. 29ers have a much larger contact area. For the first time the arrangement and proximity of lugs on the new Racing Ralph have been specially adapted to this greater contact area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LowLight Super fast tire, sticks like duct tape to a cat.
Everything I've asked Ralph to do, he's done effortlessly. I use Ralph's for fast and technical singletrack both recreational and racing. I run tubeless at 22/26 f/r on a 650b Anthem and handling is as snappy as my 26" rigid but climbing is above and beyond. BE FOREWARNED! this is a racing tire, is you are heading into sharp rocks, thorns, broken glass, etc... you risk damaging your sidewalls. That light weight had to come from somewhere!
