The Schwalbe Racing Ralph Addix Speed LiteSkin is the lightest option of this type of tyre. This lightweight mountain bike tyre is made using the latest Addix Speed compound. Addix Speed uses a new rubber composition which makes the tyre run smoother while also ensuring it lasts longer. The tread features low profile knobs. This lowers rolling resistance but still offers enough traction when you need it most. The outer knobs take over whenever you hurl your bike into a corner. These lugs are slightly taller than those in the middle, as they provide traction in turns.

Addix Compound
The Addix compound has managed to crack the ordinary trade off between wear, rolling resistance, and grip. This is a dilemma which has occupied the cycling tyre industry for years. Normally, they’d have to sacrifice one of these traits to improve the others, but no longer. Schwalbe has raised the bar even further when it comes to performance and quality with Addix. Not just for XC-racing use, but for all mountain biking disciplines, which all have their own specific needs and demands. For that reason, there are no less than 4 different versions of this compound type available.

Addix Speed
Easily recognisable by the red line running along the tyre. The latest compound for XC racers which rolls even smoother than the current PaceStar compound, and with a clearly improved lifespan.

Tubeless Easy. Snakeskin
Schwalbe is a firm believer: tubeless is the tyre technology of the future. The Snakeskin fabric in the sidewall of the tyre makes the tubeless conversion for the mountain bike extremely easy, light and safe. At the same time the fabric provides the best protection against cuts in the sidewall.

Slecht lucht dicht te maken en erg dun.

Band is slecht tubeless te maken en was binnen 100 km al gescheurd. Grip is top.

beste band

Fijn en lichte band, monteert gemakkelijk en rijdt lekker

Heb de band gemonteerd in combinatie met een Michelin latex binnenband vanwege het voordeel gewicht/rolweerstand. Monteerde gemakkelijk (alleen de 26 inch binnenband vroeg eigenlijk een extra 'handje') en rijdt ook merkbaar lichter als mijn oude RacingRalph met 'zware' binnenband. Nog iets te zeuren dan? Jawel hoor; als er dan per se zo'n opzichtige rode streep op moet, waarom dan niet netjes in het midden?? Oh ja; mijn oude RR ging superlang mee, ben wel benieuwd naar de levensduur van deze light-versie..

Pros
  • gewicht
  • grip (op droge bosgrond)
  • monteert gemakkelijk
  • SUPERSNEL geleverd!
Cons
  • prijs (tsja, ben Hollander)
  • streep 'uit het midden'
