Used on very fast and dry trails. Little rolling resistance and little weight. Primarily for use on rear wheel.
Tread design: fast, flat studs in the centre of the tread for good corner grip with sturdy lugs on the tyre shoulders.
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 Soft, orange identifier: The compound is used just as often in demanding all-mountain and trail riding as in the enduro and downhill world. It has impressively good rolling characteristics and at the same time outstanding damping, both of which are also evident at low temperatures. It’s also ideal for e-MTBs.
A light and flexible carcass makes the tyre highly resistant to scrubbing.
A patented carcass construction. Quadruple ply carcass makes the sidewalls stable and safe. The tread remains extremely flexible and grippy with two carcass plies. All around Snakeskin is excellent protection against cuts.
