Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Look great These tyres look great on my 29er, they roll really fast and give me confidence in the corners! 15 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tyres Similar to continental mountain/race king tyres, less knowledge than my last rear tyre which was a halo knobler. 08 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 O pneu parece muito bom Recebi meus pneus hoje, parecem muito bons. Agora é só colocá-los na bike, rodar e confirmar minhas expectativas. 06 October 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Cheap good looking tires. Tires looks nice and fat, however it's almost impossible to make them sit even on a rim. Have bought 3pairs of them and each pair had the same problem. But again it's the cheapest SCHWALBE mtb model. 23 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Goodbasic tyre Bought a couple of these for my girlfriends bikes. It came with some very heavy off road tyres and she was mostly using it on roads and paths, so got her a pair of these. You know what you get with Rapid Robs, and they do the job lovely. 29 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Grip, grip, and more grip! I have been using these tires for a month now and they are killer for the value! These are great tires! I have used them in many conditions: riding to the trails, hard trails with loose gravel, soft and wet soil, soft and dry soil, roots, rocks, and even pretty muddy situations. Cornering is excellent! In the wet or in dry (a bit less grip in the wet obviously). In wet situations, it will find lots of grip in the corners but on flat and slippery rocks, it may slip out just a bit which is fine. Also, the tire doesn't wear out too quick. I have locked out the rear many times and the knobs are still big! Overall, these are great tires for many conditions -- especially for their value! 20 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tire, Better Value. Rapid Robs came stock with my bike when I got it last year. Pretty classy I thought. I ride mostly off-road and I really enjoyed the rolling resistance and grip of these tires. I'm not an extreme ride by any stretch of the imagination, so I can't speak to any extreme capabilities of them. Started experimenting on local trails riding really low pressures... sometime as low as 18psi in the front and 20psi in the rear... it almost felt like my hardtail was a dual suspension bike, ultra-gripping the trail. I don't know if I'd recommend those ultra-low pressures to everyone... I weigh 155 lbs. on a heavy day... but for me Rapid Robs at low pressure are something else. They do wear relatively quickly; mine wore out within one full season, so i replaced them with a brand new shiny pair (not for long) that were a breeze to install. Great tire at a really great price. 14 August 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Бысто стираются, шумные, слабый накат При покупке стояли на Kross Level A3, стерлись за 2000 км! По асфальту накат не важный, шумные. После износа протектора на 15-20 %, с наклонной плоскости ( пыль, асфальт, при переезде через рельсы) просто соскальзывали! По грязи гребут неплохо. Так как катаю в основном по городу и пригороду, приобрел полуслики Schwalbe Hurricane Performance. Ощущения неописуемые! Бесшумные,великолепный накат по асфальту, цепкие на поворотах, достойно себя ведут на мокром асфальте. Несколько раз попадал на раскисшие трелевочные дороги- если грязь не глубокая, потихоньку ехать можно. Хотя специально в говна лезть не советую. А теперь то что меня очень порадовало. За 1500 км пробега износа протектора практически нет! Даже при резком торможении черный след на асфальте еле виден. Я уверен что есть покрышки и лучше, но я ездил на этих двух и делюсь с вами своими впечатлениями. Стершийся за 2000 Рапид Роб и прошедший 1500 Ураган. На фото даже еще видны не стершиеся волосики на Урагане. 12 August 2014

Sizing

Hi,
Looking to replace a Black Jack tyre that was 26'' x 1.95''. Will the 26'' x 2.1'' still fit on the rim or do I need to go narrower?
Cheers

Answer: 
The 2.1 Black Jack Tyre you are looking at will fit your rim. Most standard MTB wheels will take up to a 2.2 tyre so you should have no problem.

Answer: 
The tolerance is fine, just what bike is it going on? but you wouldn't need to change the rim..

Answer: 
2.1's will fit on your rim but it is worth checking the clearance on your frame and front derailleur, usually 2.1's will fit fine unless the 1.95's were already oversize for the frame.

Have fun!
