The tire development goal was to combine the best of Racing Ralph and Furious Fred. At less than 400 g, the weight is almost exactly in the middle. With its many small lugs Thunder Burt is close on the heels of Racing Ralph regarding grip and in terms of rolling resistance its even better than Furious Fred.
Size: ETRTO 54-622 (29 x 2.10 Inch)
Execution: SnakeSkin, TL-Ready
Weight: 515 g (18 oz)
Pressure: 2.00 - 4.00 Bar (30 - 55 psi)
Maximum load: 110 kg
SNAKESKIN: One of our most effective inventions for Mountainbikes. SnakeSkin fabric adds only ca. 40-50 g per tire. This makes it the most practical protection against sharp rocks that can easily cut the side wall of light racing tires. SnakeSkin - in rocky terrain it is a great call!

The worst tubeless tyres l have ever had - PERIOD. I'd like to report how lightweight they are, how fast they roll in the right conditions. But l cannot. Why? Well if you can get these to seal, you're doing well. I never even made it out the garage.
I bought two for fast paced work, been running tubeless for 3 years and can change any tire in quick order with no problems. At first, l thought the first tyre might have been faulty, as try what might nothing could get it to sit. I tried soapy water on the bead, stans sealant on the bead, cannisters, rotating slowly, compressor you name it - No chance.
Tried the second one, same result. If anything ld say the tyre is perhaps 1-2mm too big for the rim, and so no matter what you do it simply will not seal. Used almost an entire bottle of stans in my perseverance, it was one heck of a PT session with the track pump.
Not impressed in the slightest, so grabbed my Racing Ralph, fitted that and inflated in less than a minute. Go figure.
Top tip - don't bin the boxes like l did, as l foolishly assumed they would be fine. So cant send back for a refund, believe me at close to a hundred pounds for two this added insult to injury.
Summary: Worst tyres ever. Avoid like the plague.

Awesome tire if you are looking at low weight. Super light. I have checked the real weight and it is even less than announced. 377g for me. Awesome.
