Looking for a light weight XC race tire that is properly wide? The new Goodyear Peak SL looks like it will fit the bill with a 29 x 2.4″ size that checks in at a claimed 710g. That light weight also doesn’t come at the expense of sidewall protection either…

Thanks to the addition of ‘Mono fabric’ at the sidewall, their M:Wall Sidewall protection layer should give the 120 tpi casing a boost in durability (at the highest product level). Note that the tire will be offered in 29 x 2.25 or 29 x 2.4″. Claimed weight for the 2.25″ version is just 680g, with the 2.4″ version bumping up to 710g.

Goodyear Peak SL tread pattern

Using an updated low profile tread pattern from the Peak Ultimate tires, the Peak SL tires should also be even lighter weight. Traction is delivered through their DYNAMIC: A/T compound, meant to work in conjunction with the tread to deliver a fast tire with low rolling resistance.

The Peak SL will be offered in two versions, with the SL using a 60 tpi casing without the M:Wall protection, and the SL Race running the 120 tpi M:Wall casing. Pricing is set for $65 for the Peak SL Race.

Goodyear MTB Dirt & Park

For those who still roll around on 26″ wheels (raises hand), Goodyear has some attractive new tires for dirt jump, pump track, street, or park action.

The MTB Dirt and MTB Street tires are exactly as they sound with the Street tire running a smooth tread with plenty of siping, and the Dirt tire running a low profile knobby tread. Run them however you need – Dirt/Dirt, Street/Street, or Dirt in the front and Street in the back for the best of both worlds.

These will be offered in 26 x 2.2 initially, and are likely to sell for $45-50 each.

I run the Peaks on my single speed in the 27.5×2.25 size. These tires are very fast rolling and have good traction. I’m glad to see that the that they will be offered in a 29×2.4 which would be excellent for xc race bike.

I just grabbed some Rekon Race WT for a good deal for my hardtail, and am enjoying the combo of fast-rolling + wider platform. But they are kinda heavy for what they are, I looked all over for the Peaks and couldn’t find them yet, I they might be the next I try though.

coming from the 26″ world I have a hard time adjusting to 700-ish grams being “light”
