Vital statistics:
Size: 36" x 2.25"
Weight: 1625g +/-40g
Tubeless Ready: Yes
Max PSI: 65
Bead: Wire
TPI: 36
Durometer: 60 Shore A

These tires are significantly lighter (you'll save more than a pound per tire) than the competition, which help you accelerate more quickly and reduces the weight of the wheel at the rim allowing for faster/longer rides with reduced effort.  They are tubeless ready and setup well allowing for lower pressure and more grip. Bicyclists have found 18-23psi to be a good range while unicyclists have gone a bit higher to 32-40psi. 

Tread pattern lies between a Kenda Nevegal and Schwalbe Racing Ralph in terms of tread depth and design, creating good grip across a wide range of terrain and conditions while maximizing speed off-road and on.  Tapered and ramped center knobs along with ramped transition knobs provide traction and control, while tie bars connecting the triangular transition knobs to side knobs help with cornering.

Thanks Waltworks, I am a framebuilder in Melbourne area Australia. I have been hand grooving 36" tyres to date. I have made a 39er, 36 front and 29 rear for some long touring, (GDR type stuff) also have made an offroad version off penny farthing with 36 front, called the dollar twenty. As I am not in US, please email me price for 3 tyres, cheers info@cogbikecafe.com.au

Hi There, I'm a unicyclist who rides a 36, so I'm very interested in your tire. However, the claim that I'll save more than a pound is a slight exaggeration. [1 lb. = 454.6 grams] I use the Nimbus Nightrider - claimed weight 1824g, ave. weight 1914g, but sill less than a pound heavier than the 1540g your tire is listed at. I don't really know who else the "competition" is, except Coker.
Neverthess, if your tire comes in at the listed weight, I think it will be worth it. Keep working on it -- unicyclists don't need a lot of tread, if you could come it at 1200g, I think everyone I know would buy one! Warm Regards.
