Schwalbe's latest racing tyre is called Schwalbe One.
The name alone indicates how significant this new tyre is for the bicycle tyre manufacturer based in the German town of Reichshof. It is produced by Schwalbe in a high-end factory set up exclusively for the manufacture of this new top-class tyre.
The Schwalbe One will made its debut appearance at the Tour de France, with RadioShack Leopard Trek, AG2R and FDJ. Jens Voigt from Team RadioShack Leopard Trek said "I am very satisfied with the performance of the Schwalbe tyres. I never experienced such wet adhesion, such great cornering with traditional, hand-sewn tubed tyres in the past. And Im thrilled with Schwalbes persistence and the way the company is putting its heart and soul into constantly improving these racing tyres!"
NEW TRIPLE COMPOUND - Minimum rolling resistance, maximum cut resistance.
A completely new compound, the OneStar triple compound, was developed specifically for extremely low rolling resistance. "In recent years there have been major developments in compounding, without which such rubber mixes would not have been possible. The new triple compound is based on special polymers that have only recently become available," reported Markus Hachmeyer, Senior Product Manager. As a result Schwalbe has achieved a great improvement in the familiar trade-off between rolling resistance, wet adhesion and durability. The technicians have subjected innumerable rubber mixes and more than 50 prototypes to laboratory tests and practical trials.
However, the OneStar triple compound is not only faster, it also delivers the good grip we all appreciate – and it is also more cut-resistant than previous compounds. This makes the tyre significantly more puncture-resistant. The tread contour with its more robust tyre shoulder also helps to make the tyre more reliable.
An extremely cut-resistant high-tech fibre makes it possible to ensure even on very light tyres an extraordinary high level of puncture resistance. In combination with SnakeSkin sidewall protection, Schwalbe call it Double Defense Technology. At 205 grams the new racing tyre, due to a slight increase in the amount of material used, is just a little heavier than the Ultremo ZX. But the technical benefits more than offset this supposed disadvantage: thanks to the innovative triple compound, the V-Guard and the new tread pattern this tyre is extremely puncture-resistant and rolling resistance is minimised.
