Schwalbe Rocket Ron Update

I’m running Rocket Ron EVOs on the Superfish now.

Tubeless, ENVE XC rims, typically 23psi front, 25psi rear.

They feel as light as the Ikons I used to run, and seem to roll just as fast.  However, where they kick the Ikon’s butt is in grip.  Grip in corners is much improved–totally confidence inspiring.  I’m making a concerted effort to lean the bike in corners and take advantage of those sidewall knobbies…and they’re holding on to everything I touch.  I’m super-impressed, and super-excited.  These will be the tires I run for Chequamegon.
