Schwalbe brand bicycle tyres can be found from the USA to Australia and Japan to South Africa. In Europe they are the market leaders. They believe there are two reasons for this success. Firstly, they are tyre fanatics, absolutely specialising in bicycles and for some years also in wheelchairs. Secondly, their tyres can’t be found everywhere, but exclusively in the specialised trade because qualified advice and good service are a must.
Schwalbe Addix Smart Sam Performance Folding Tyre 26 x 2.25
No easy challenge for Schwalbe's senior developer. The result, however, is outstanding. The tread of the Smart Sam is modern and balanced at the same time. The compact central rib provides comfortable rolling; the edged outer lugs guarantee optimized off-road-grip. For this reason Smart Sam is reliable in every condition and even rolls well on roads.
ADDIX: Push yourself to your limits and demand the most from your tyre. When the pressure is on, it shows its true colours: more grip, more speed, more mileage. Every rubber compound is made up of natural and synthetic rubbers - along with many other solid and liquid ingredients. Carbon black, silica, silanes, oils, sulphur anti-oxidants to name just a few... The quality of all these raw materials determines whether a tyre will be outstanding or just mediocre. There are countless options for selecting, combining and measuring them, so a good formula requires highly specialised expertise, high-quality raw materials and extrensive testing - it goes without saying that the final recipe is top secret.
