Description

Race until your legs give out. The Schwalbe Racing Ralph Addix Speed TL-Easy says it all in the name. Another addition to the name is the new type of compound. The Addix Speed has a new rubber composition which both decreases rolling resistance and increases durability. This Racing Ralph is Tubeless Easy. This means you can run them without inner tubes, provided you add a little liquid latex. This improves both puncture resistance and grip, and decreases rolling resistance. 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.

Prima banden

review is voor combi Racing Ray Addix Speedgrip voor en Racing Ralph Addix Speed achter. Nu ongeveer 200km mee gereden. Grip is beter dan ik had verwacht. Op hardere zandgrond en kleine hoeveelheid modder is grip zeer goed. Voor veel bochten werk in grotere modderlagen is iets meer profiel prettig. Rolweerstand is erg prettig (laag) op reguliere ronde (Zeist) sneller dan met de voirge set banden (Bontrager xr4 - die behoorlijk zwaar en grof profiel hebben). Na 200km nog weinig te beoordelen qua slijtage.

Pros

  • lage rolweerstand
  • goed grip op hardere (zand) ondergrond

Cons

  • in zachte ondergronden wat minder grip in de bocht
  • rode streepje niet zo mooi ;)

Let op! Niet als voorband monteren!

Na jaren met een set Racing Ralphs gereden te hebben was het nodig de voorband te vervangen. Hierbij niet wetende dat de compound totaal anders is. Bij binnenkomst viel mij dit al op en toch maar gemonteerd om eens te kijken hoe dat gaat. Samen gevat: erg gevaarlijk! Deze band heeft erg weinig grip in bv mul zand en glijd erg snel weg. Absolutely dus niet voorop monteren als je met flink tempo fietst in terrein.

Pros

  • Als achterband prima
  • Rolweerstand voelbaat
