Schwalbe One Folding Road Tyre The name alone indicates how significant this new tyre is for Schwalbe. It is the fastest and at the same time most reliable competition tyre they have ever made thanks to their new OneStar compound with the added protection of V-Guard under the tread.
The new racing tyre is called Schwalbe 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 many Pro teams including 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 tyre Schwalbe 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.
With its 205 grams the new racing tyre, 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.
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 tyres 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!"

Mr GarzaVery fast tire, not as durable as the Continental but built for speed.
Mr PilkingtonReplaced the tyre that came with my bike, which were beaded, so a lot lighter. First thing I noticed when riding was the smoothness of the ride and also quieter. Only had a couple of rides but one in the dry and one in the wet and the tyres performed very well, so no complaints yet. Will see how they get on when I tackle the Alps at the end of May.
Mr WhiteMy favourite tyre. Allot softer than Continental Gator Skins but rolls really well.
Mr PhillipsSuperb tyres, run really fast.
Mr WakelingThese tyres are fantastic, fast, grippy and a supple ride. Better than the Ultremo.
Mr KingswoodOnly 300 miles in but no signs of wear, upgraded from 23 giant specific tyres to these at 25mm, noticiably more comfy and grippier without being slow. I`m a 25mm man now!
ScottFast and grippy! Have had one puncture, which probably puts it below some others (eg, gatorskins) for puncture protection, though still very good!
Mr PlattFast rolling, very grippy tyre.
