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 set up exclusively for the manufacture of this new top-class tire. The Schwalbe One has been used RadioShack Leopard Trek, AG2R and FDJ.
With its Schwalbe One the company is underlining its major objectives in cycle racing. The Schwalbe One is the fastest and at the same time the most reliable competition tire we have ever produced.
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 tradeoff 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 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 tire extremely puncture-resistant.
Jens Voigt from Team RadioShack Leopard Trek confirms this fact: "I am very satisfied with the performance of the Schwalbe tires. I never experienced such wet adhesion, such great cornering with traditional, hand-sewn tubed tires in the past. And I'm thrilled with Schwalbe's persistence and the way the company is putting its heart and soul into constantly improving these racing tires!"
The Schwalbe One factory
Schwalbe has set up a dedicated high-end factory within its production plant in Indonesia, specifically for the manufacture of these tires. Which is a completely new unit where only Schwalbe One tires are being produced, with fixed vulcanization and production units that are used exclusively for this tire and where the most skilled workers in the entire Schwalbe plant can be found helping to ensure a consistently high quality and reliability.
