Hello Guys, I did not find any threads about this new product just released at Eurobike this weekend.

Check out the link:
http://www.schwalbe.com/en/schwalbe-procore.html

I was thinking... The claimed weight is 200grams for the whole system. but i've only seen in on DH bikes, no XC bikes.

they will be available for 26¨, 29¨ and for 27.5 (650B)

Im a XC rider myself, is there anything to win here compared to running tubeless system? what do ya'll think.

It's an extra 200g per tyre and you still need the tubeless sealant for puncture prevention. I don't think for XC it'll catch on. We generally don't go over big drops so burping is less of an issue and would we want the extra rolling resistance of running 10psi in the tyres? I think it's good for DH and obviously enduro riders will love it, but don't think it'll catch on for XC as 200g is quite a lot.

I thought it might be interesting for a CX application. The ability to have several different tires and not have to reglue could be nice. However it hard to overlook 200g.
