New ADDIX compound
Improving grip and rolling resistance, durability and damping – these are the standard conflicting aims of tyre technology – where enhancement of one property always comes at the expense of another. So ultimately it’s all about making intelligent compromises aimed at edging that little bit closer to perfection.
With Addix, Schwalbe offers significantly improved solutions, particularly with regard to the lifetime of its tyres, and marks a new level of performance, not only in competitive use, for all MTB disciplines with their very different requirements.
For the Addix compound, Schwalbe uses a state-of-the-art and extremely precise mixing technology which is not generally used in the bicycle tyre industry. The mixing process allows for an almost infinite number of parameter variations and, with the new production hardware set up especially for Addix, this gives rise to entirely new formulas.
Addix Speed, red identifier:
The new compound for XC Race specialists rolls even better than the previous PaceStar compound and has a considerably extended service life.
Skin tyres have light, thin sidewalls. Advantages: weight saving and reduced rolling resistance.
A light and flexible carcass makes the tyre highly resistant to scrubbing.
