- Profile, compound, carcass. In the third generation of the Racing Ralph everything is designed for speed. In the 29” variant the special arrangement of the blocks and their elongation have been adapted to the longer footprint. Performance advantages of the large wheels are optimally improved.
The optimal competition tyre. Still hungry for success, it has a new tread design and Triple Nano Compound. Cuts like a knife through the toughest terrain. More aggressive too: Holds a tight line in curves with its new sharks-tooth U-Blocks.
High Density – High Density guard is a unique puncture protection technology only available from Schwalbe. It has been jointly developed in co-operation with American firm Warwick Mills. Warwick is a specialised maker of high density fabrics and holds 14 internal patents for its weaving technology. No other bicycle tire protection belt is a density woven and this technology makes it possible to make a tyre that is both light in weight and with an extraordinary high level of puncture resistance.
Puncture protection; Standard tires have an effective puncture protection belt made of natural rubber. The new, doubled and dense 50 EPI carcass has improved puncture protection.
Additional with SnakeSkin sidewall: The “SnakeSkin” protects tire shoulders and side walls against sharp rocks and glass. It is far lighter than a full rubber side wall, but nevertheless just as sturdy.
