The Schwalbe Rocket Ron ADDIX tire combines speed and corner control at the highest possible level. This excellent all-rounder is ready for racetracks, yet performs just as well off the course as it does on. Ultra lightweight, the Rocket Ron is also highly durable with its SnakeSkin technology in the sidewalls, preventing the untimely puncture, tear, or other flat-causing results of wear and tear. Featuring Schwalbe's ADDIX Speedgrip compound, the Rocket Ron rolls fast with lowered rolling resistance that doesn't compromise on comfort or versatility. The open tread pattern features low-lying knobs that shed mud efficiently and roll fast, yet the larger shoulder knobs dig in during cornering.

The Schwalbe Rocket Ron ADDIX 27.5" Plus MTB tire is available in two widths: 2.8" and 3". Also available for 29" wheels, and standard 27" applications.


  • Fast-rolling, lightweight cross-country tire provides versatile riding.
  • Open tread pattern sheds mud easily, yet provides grip when it's needed.
  • ADDIX Speedgrip compound reduces rolling resistance.
  • SnakeSkin sidewall protects against punctures, sidewall tears, and wear-and-tear.
  • Available in two Plus-sized widths: 2.8" or 3".

Tire Width: 70mm (2.8in)

Rides well

I replaced Specialized Ground Control with this. The Specialized oozed Stans through the sidewalls a LOT. The Schwalbes don't! Grip and resilience is good IMHO. I'm happy.
