Even on extremely steep, technically challenging ascents. Locks late when you brake giving you control and directional stability.
Tread design: continuous, long tread edges on the stud propulsion sides. Curved propulsion edges on the central studs guarantee high traction even on soft terrain.
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 Speedgrip, blue identifier:
The compound with by far the widest range of use, almost a universal compound. Ideal for cross country, all-mountain and trail. Durability is 62 percent higher compared to its predecessor PaceStar, with grip up by 35 percent.
A light and flexible carcass makes the tyre highly resistant to scrubbing.
