Tire Review: Schwalbe CX Pro Sport 26” Cyclocross Tire Review

Racing and Riding Impressions: Schwalbe’s CX Pro Sport is one of the few ’cross tires available for 26 inch wheels, making it a great choice for mountain bikers looking to try out cyclocross, or for a 26” wheeled ’cross bike. While it has a similar tread pattern to the CX Pro Light, the 26” version has a more versatile 32mm width (measured on a Mavic 230 mountain bike rim), and is UCI legal. This width gives the tire far better traction, comfort, and handling on any surface than the 700c “Light” version. We only wish this came in a folding version to save a few grams, but that shouldn’t be a big concern for anyone looking for a cheap way to try ’cross on a mountain bike.
