The perfect racer
Faced with the extreme challenges of today‘s XC tracks, we completely revised Racing Ralph. The result is a very fast and versatile XC profile, specially developed for the rear wheel.
- Numerous grip edges in the tread center for super traction and excellent acceleration.
- Distinct shoulder studs for excellent lateral grip.
- Good rolling properties and extremely quiet.
One of the most effective Schwalbe inventions for mountain bikes. SnakeSkin fabric adds only 40-50 g per tyre. This makes it the most practical protection against sharp rocks that can easily cut the side wall of light racing tyres. SnakeSkin - in rocky terrain it is a great call! SnakeSkin tyres are the best suited for tubeless conversion! The sidewalls seal almost immediately, already half the quantity of sealing fluid is is usually enough! Just about compensating for the extra weight of the SnakeSkin sidewall – and furthermore it is additional protection against sharp rocks.
The Evo tyres 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 all-round Double Defense protection with SnakeSkin side wall.
The new standard for Schwalbe's Evo tyres. A new sidewall mono-filament fabric brings three advantages over the previous SnakeSkin fabric: Even better cut resistance, increased protection and most importantly it allows an extremely easy Tubeless conversion. The use of liquid sealant is necessary, but otherwise installation is just as easy as with real Tubeless tyres. Time consuming conversion requiring intensive shaking and frequent re-inflation is no longer needed with Tubeless Easy. It replaces both the previous Tubeless and Tubeless Ready versions.
Addix Speed is the compound for XC race specialists. It catapults Schwalbe's XC tyres into a new performance dimension. Here’s the answer for those who’d like to go even faster. There’s only one thing that Addix Speed really loves and that’s speed. So the rolling resistance has been chopped yet again. It’s lower than the previous PaceStar, but at the same time Addix Speed is more durable and more resilient.
The ultimate competition construction for XC racers - when speed matters. Unsurpas-sed control and low rolling resistance. Extreme suppleness absorbs bumps, de-stresses the rider and ensures traction. The prerequisite for driving down personal best times.
