Schwalbe Jumbo Jim 26 x 4.0 Fat Tire
One of the most highly anticipated tires to hit the Fat world. With many devoted Schwalbe mountain tire users we could not wait for them to enter the market and see what they would release to improve our experience. Their first tire, the Jumbo Jim takes a tread similar to their popular racing ralph and expands to a 4″ and large 4.8″ size and of course they had to make it light! First offered equipped to many production bikes this year we have had the opportunity to do a fair amount of testing with the Jim and we will say there are better winter tires for loose snow and cornering but take it to the dirt and this tire offers one of the best blends of traction, low rolling resistance and lightweight! Kind of just like the racing ralph it is modeled after. While they do offer an super light 990g 4.0 Liteskin version we do recommend the only 100g heavier Snakeskin version for a more durable tubeless friendly sidewall. We see the 4.0 Snakeskin as the hottest summer tire available this season so don’t wait for these to disappear!
