An old favourite in the Schwalbe line-up, the Racing Ralph has been freshly redeveloped as a rear specific modern XC racing tyre with wider, more closely spaced knobs, and reborn as the Racing Ralph HS490. While intended for use with the front specific Racing Ray, the Racing Ralph HS490 also works well as a fast rolling front tyre for riding & racing in dry hardpack trail conditions.

These tyres are available exclusively in the Red Addix Speed Compound to minimise rolling resistance and wear while maximising acceleration and braking performance. Consider pairing them with a beefier front tyre such as a Hans Dampf HS491 or Maxxis Minion DHF for a fast, capable combo for Trail and Enduro racing on dry trails.

  • ADDIX SPEED (Red): The compound of choice for XC race specialists. This is a harder compound that's main strengths are speed, stability, and durability.
  • SNAKESKIN: The Snakeskin fabric helps to prevent sidewall cuts and helps to provide an easy tubeless conversion
  • TLE: Tubeless Easy
