The 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. With Advances in recent years there have been major developments in compounding, without which such rubber mixes would not have been possible. 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 tire significantly more puncture-resistant. The tread contour with its more robust tyre shoulder also helps to make the tyre more reliable.
With its 205 grams the new racing tire, 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, rolling resistance is minimized. At the same time the compound, the V-Guard and the new tread pattern make the tyre extremely puncture-resistant.
V-Guard Puncture Protection
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, we call it Double Defense Technology.
For over 70 years Schwalbe have dominated the two wheeled tyre industry in Germany and Europe, being voted best MTB tyre brand in Germany for the past two years. From the very early beginnings where the company founder, Earnest-Wilhelm Bohle capitalised on the developing cycle industry, to the ultra modern distribution facility near Cologne, Schwalbe have continued to design and manufacture some of the finest bicycle tyres available. Schwalbe's success is due in part to the effort it makes in product development from lab tests at the manufacturing facility to the hardest proving grounds of all, professional cycle racing. 'Team Gerolsteiner' achieved a very creditable 7th place overall in the 2004 Tour de France and the unique performance of team captain Davide Rebellin winning three major classic races back to back using Schwalbe tyre. Other notable succeses include Normann Stadler winning the infamous Ironman triathlon in Hawaii, riding Schwalbe Stelvio tyres.
