Schwalbe rate its Service Life at 2/6 on their own site. The tread looks very superficial. Worn right off at 1500 miles on the rear of a road bike according to this review.

It's apparently 560g for a 29x2.35 which sounds crazy!
Definitely crazy. Reviews also say it is easily punctured but that is to be expected on such a light tyre.

Maximum pressure 50 psi could be an issue on a uni under heavy torque. I weigh 80kg and I found I needed 55 psi on the Torch 29x2.10 or the sidewalls felt like they buckled on steep hills. I imagine the larger profile could be even more prone to this.

Think it would be interesting race tyre.
