Schwalbe has developed a new tyre specifically for the latest trend in cycling, the gravel bikes. The fast-rolling Schwalbe G-One is a great tyre to use on dirt- and forest roads. Provided your frame allows it, go for the 40 mm version. Whatever the terrain, a larger volume tyre will always help you out!
These tyres are great value for money for frequent users. The rubber compound used for this type of tyre is called Dual Compound. Two different rubber compounds ensure optimal performance.
The Dual Compound name refers to the 2 different types of rubber used to create the tyre. The main running track in the middle is made from a more rugged type of rubber, ensuring a longer lifespan and decreasing the rolling resistance. The sides are made using a softer compound to optimise your grip. These tyres last longer, but offer slightly less grip than tyres which use the Pacestar compound in the Evolution line.
