Rated 3 out of 5 by Jesperh Too slippery
I have Rocket Ron on my new Ghost 29'. My first ride in the woods gives a flat tire after 5 mins. It runs great but It feels like its a bit slippery on wet roots and rocks. If you only ride sandy and rubble tracks its a great tire with low resistance but I will change it to a Hans Dampf very soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PIROXICAMBR Good MTB tire
Bought this tire to use as tubeless. It lasts well, rode 3k km on rear and still going! Very good for a low weight tire. Now it's having too much punctures, large ones (After 2k km) and I had to put tubes on it.
I'll try the snakeskin version next time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Good traction but very fast wearing
I've tried them front and rear on a 29er hardtail. As a front tyre, they are a good alrounder. As a rear tyre, they're good too, but after 3 hours of riding sandy singletrack with a few rock gardens, the rear tyre knobs (all the centre ones) are ripping and wearing noticeably. I doubt that I can wear the tread down like I do on all other tyres I've used-rather I expect the tread will have ripped away. The softer compound isn't worth the extra cost and shorter life (for me). I'll be looking elsewhere.
