Schwalbe Fat Albert SnakeSkin Folding MTB Enduro / All-Mountain Tyre
The Legend returns. The driving force behind the new Fat Albert has clearly been Gerrit Gaastra. The bike guru and out-of-the-box thinker has pushed Schwalbe to break new ground and question the proven tread design. This realm of the unknown is where you generate innovation and create outstanding tyres.
More than 15 years ago Schwalbe's first Fat Albert was a big success. It was not only the first tyre in 2.4" width, which was meant for all-round use, but for a long time it was the standard for high-traction tyres. The incredible grip allowed riders of all abilities to ride difficult trails making the Fat Albert a popular choice.
Since then, mountain bike technology and how they are used has changed rapidly in many ways. Suspension travel has become longer, frame designs refined, wheels have become larger. Bikes today allow significantly higher downhill speeds than ever before, but one thing has never changed: tyres are still the most important component of every bike. Every aspect of the bike can be perfect, but without a capable tyre you won't stand a chance in demanding terrain.
Encouraged by sophisticated suspension and innovate design, bikers seek challenges on increasingly difficult trails. As the line continues to blur between pedalling efficiency and robust downhill machines the rider demands on a tyre are now more diverse than ever.
That's why Schwalbe has developed a radical new profile design specific for the front and rear. Proven to be worthy of the Fat Albert name, the appealing easy rolling and outstanding traction in all riding conditions. The perfect trail tyre combination. With this duo, the increased potential allows sophisticated bikes to fully explore both the most difficult descents and steepest ascents.
