Outstanding For Fast And Dry XC Tracks

The THUNDER BURT Super Race 29 inch MTB tire is Schwalbe's fastest MTB tire because of Its low weight and extremely low rolling resistance.

Tightly packed center knobs will keep you fast while beefier side knobs keep you upright when the terrain gets technical.

The THUNDER BURT is a marvelous combination of many different ride characteristics that sacrifices very little in terms of performance. This is the go-to-tire for XC racers in dry conditions, or gravel/singletrack shredders with drop bar frames that tout wide tire clearances.

Super Race—The Ultimate Competition Construction For XC Racers

When speed, unsurpassed control and low rolling resistance matter, choose a tire with Super Race Construction.

Their extreme suppleness absorbs bumps, de-stresses the rider and ensures traction. Super Race is the prerequisite for shaving off seconds and achieving personal best times.

Super Race tires are ideal for sportive use in XC and marathon applications. Turn-Up construction keeps the tires supple and flexible, while the RaceGuard protection layer keeps your tires inflated while you achieve maximum speed.


Features:

  • Multiple small, flat studs for fast and quiet rolling
  • Numerous grip edges for hard ground
  • Edged shoulder studs for good grip and control in curves
  • Folding bead, TLE

Definitely think about buying this tire

I use this tire on my commuting bike, a Specialized Chisel. I installed my set (2.25 inch) about three weeks ago, and have to say I am pleased. First of all, the tires easily installed onto my Stan's Arch 29 inch rims (I think Schwalbe tires tend to mount easier than Hutchison and Continental tubeless tires). The tires hold air well, as three weeks on from install, each tire had only lost a few psi from the original inflation when I checked today (I use Orange Seal, bought from BTD on sale, of course!).

I will agree that these tires are fast. The reason I bought these tires is that I cannot find Hutchinson Black Mambas anymore. Both the Burts and Mambas have low profile tread on the tire center (with the Burts having a slightly higher profile tread), but the Burts are definitely faster. Time will tell on durability, but my experience with Schwalbe tires is that durability, while good, is not outstanding.
