Hardshell ProTection

Convincing puncture protection and durability are the strengths of the Hardshell ProTection. Comparatively wider than the PolyX Breaker, it protects under the tread as well as the sidewall. Together with the three-layer carcass with 60 TPI per layer, the tire thus becomes a true bulwark against external influences. Tires with Hardshell ProTection offer indestructible protection - exclusively "handmade in Germany".


Tires with DuraSkin sidewall protection must be able to take a beating. They are used in the most adverse conditions. On messenger bikes, the tires slide along curbs, on touring bikes they cross continents without wearing through, in racing they have to pass endurance tests like Paris-Roubaix. The high-quality polyamide fabric reliably protects the sidewall of the tire and arms the tire for the extreme. From the broad mass these tires stand out thanks to their brown sidewall.
