Positives

Negatives

The fastest gravity tire. For the first time, we brought a “real” semi-slick to the Gravity and Enduro scenes. It’s a very interesting option especially on the rear wheel and for very fast, dry trails. These is no better tire for low rolling resistance than Rock Razor.

TRIPLE STAR COMPOUND MTB

EVOLUTION LINE
The Evo tires offer the unique combination of low weight, excellent performance and optimum puncture protection. These are ensured by the high tech materials such as the Triple Star Compound, the HD Speed Guard against punctures, or the allround Double Defense protection with SnakeSkin side wall.

SUPER GRAVITY
Super Gravity has a new carcass construction at its core. The principle is a familiar one in motorbike tires. We have taken the best features and developed them further for the MTB. For SUPER GRAVITY the sidewalls are made up of four layers of carcass material, but there are only two layers underneath the cap*.

SNAKESKIN
One of our most effective inventions for Mountainbikes. SnakeSkin fabric adds only ca. 40-50 g per tire. This makes it the most practical protection against sharp rocks that can easily cut the side wall of light racing tires. SnakeSkin – in rocky terrain it is a great call!

TUBELESS READY
No tubes. Schwalbe Tubeless Ready tires make it possible. With three advantages – weight, puncture protection and low rolling resistance.
