Now color comes into play. Schwalbe has deliberately placed the very thin colored stripes at the furthest outer edges of the tread. This not only looks good, but more importantly, the colors have no noticeable effect on the performance of the Triple OneStar compounds.
Forging ahead with Schwalbe One folding tire!
The new racing tire is called Schwalbe One. The name alone indicates how significant this new tire is for the bicycle tire manufacturer based in the German town of Reichshof. It is produced by Schwalbe in a high-end factory which has been exclusively build for the manufacture of this new top-class tire. The Schwalbe One was presented at the Tour de France 2013. With the One Schwalbe underlines its major objectives in cycle racing.
OneStar Triple Compound:
A completely new compound, the OneStar triple compound, was developed specifically for extremely low rolling resistance. 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 tire shoulder also helps to make the tire more reliable. With its 205 grams this 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.
An extremely cut-resistant high-tech fiber makes it possible to ensure even on very light tires an extraordinary high level of puncture resistance.
Schwalbe Extralight Tube SV20
Extralight rubber tube for 28 inch road wheels with french (Presta) valve. Proven for many year Schwalbe Extralight tubes offer the same reliability as normal tubes but simultaneously a lower weight.
Extreme air pressure stable! The rubber compound makes it possible: less air leakage and less to pump. Extremely reliable! Quality control for safe riding pleasure: each Schwalbe tube is checked twice on air retention in the factory.
Fits the following tire dimensions:
- 18-622 (700 x 18C)
- 20-622 (700 x 20C)
- 22-622 (700 x 22C)
- 23-622 (700 x 23C)
- 25-622 (700 x 25C)
- 22-630 (27 x 7/8)
- 25-630 (27 x 1.00)
In general valves can be separated into three different groups:
Presta valve= Sclaverand valve, Race valve, French valve.
Dunlop valve= Wood, Bicycle or Dutch valve.
Schrader valve= Standard, Car or Moto valve.
Note: The tubes come with 40 mm valve length.
