Anyone know why the S Works version would be heavier than the Pro version? Sounds backwards

If it is anything like Nokian, it is because the S-Works tread has a lowered rolling resistance & softer compound, which results in a stronger (heavier) casing.

I agree - It sounds backwards.

Wait i think its lighter but yeah Rollx is boat anchor... They feel nice and grip well but the RR is slow just like Pana's Fire Xc's or Tioga.

Interesting that the RR is that bad because Mtn Bike Action magazine has been pushing these for some time as a RACE tire. I can see it though because they are very knobby and I weighed some on an electronic gram scale and they were A LOT heavier than advertiesed (590 g vs 527 advertised).
