The name alone indicates how significant this new tire is for Schwalbe. It is the fastest and at the same time most reliable competition tire they have ever made. It is manufactured in a separate facility built exclusively for the production of this new top-class tire.
The Schwalbe One is available as a folding tire and as a traditional hand-sewn tubular tire. But the future belongs to the modern tubeless version. In practice this system offers outstanding benefits. The rolling resistance is noticeably lower than with conventional folding and tubular tires because this system minimizes friction losses. At the same time tubeless systems are extremely safe and a sudden loss of air is almost impossible. There are no longer any tubes that can overheat and burst. A puncture protection liquid seals punctures within tenths of a second.
To achieve extremely low rolling resistance, a completely new compound, the OneStar Triple Compound was developed. In recent years there have been strong developments in compounding which have made these kinds of rubber compounds possible. The new triple compound is based on special polymers that have only recently become available.
As a result Schwalbe has achieved a great improvement in the familiar trade-off between rolling resistance, wet grip and durability. The One Star Triple Compound is not only faster; it also delivers the usual good grip and is more cut resistant than previous compounds. This makes the tire significantly more puncture resistant.
