Introducing the new racing tyre from Schwalbe - the 'One'! The name alone indicates how significant this new tyre is for the bicycle tyre 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 tyre. The Schwalbe One has been used by the RadioShack Leopard Trek, AG2R and FDJ pro teams!
Schwalbe are underlining their major objectives in cycle racing. The One is the fastest and at the same time the most reliable competition tyre they 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 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 tyre significantly more puncture-resistant. The tread contour with its more robust tyre shoulder also helps to make the tyre more reliable.
Jens Voigt from Team RadioShack Leopard Trek confirms this fact: "I am very satisfied with the performance of the Schwalbe tyres. 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 tyres!"
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 tyres. Which is a completely new unit where only Schwalbe One tyres are being produced, with fixed vulcanization and production units that are used exclusively for this tyre and where the most skilled workers in the entire Schwalbe plant can be found helping to ensure consistently high quality and reliability.
