They got them at Jpracingbike1, and they look quite nice to me!

Have ordered one in 52mm. Will replace a destroyed Rhino on the rear wheel.

Received information that I should have it in the mids of June so not directly available.

Was very happy with the Rhino in 45 but would like to have a wider Dugast, so I think he can be the right one.

Hallo

Have received the tyres and will mount them this week.
Do you have any suggestions in which direction they should be mounted. Anyone have any pictures from Swisspower?
What is their direction. Same as in the front for speed and loosing the mud or in the opposite direction for more traction.

Best Wishes

Matthias

My 29er set arrived last week. I've cancelled my AX wheel order though, so don't have a use for them anymore.

I also have a set of Rhino XL and a set of FMB with Furious Fred tread.

PM if interested.

Mounted him two days ago like in the front position.

Short tries yesterday and today and realy felt in love with the ride. Today I reduced the presure again and it become better and better. Tomorrow will use him the in the first race and will check the real presure.

Have a nice weekend

They look nice to me but I think I would prefer the weight savings and go with the continental race kings they are @ 100 g lighter and cheaper too.

I do not have a caliper at the moment, but my 48 Fastbirds are wider just by looking than Race King 2.0 so about 2.1 inch tire width. I would guess 50's are about the width of a Rocket Ron/Racing Ralph in 2.1

Amazing tires by the way.
