Schwalbe's Performance DC compound is an excellent dual compound with a softer rubber on the outer treads where is matters in the corners and a harder compound in the center of the tread pattern for intensive use in the straights.
The RaceGuard belt was developed specially for racing. India rubber and several layers of nylon fabric offer superb protection against penetration punctures. A minimal increase in weight and rolling resistance is a small trade-off for this level of protection.
Schwalbe, with world headquarters in Reichshof-Wehnrath, Germany, is the foremost bicycle tire company in all of Western Europe and North America!
Schwalbe is a brand name of Ralf Bohle GmbH, a German manufacturer of bicycle, scooter and wheelchair tires. The company is a third generation, family owned Mittelstand business with global reach. Schwalbe produces a wide range of tires for different cycling applications, but is best known for its commuting, touring and utility tires such as the Marathon range. Bicycles with small wheel sizes such as 16" or 20" are also catered for, a market ignored by some larger manufacturers.
It all began in 1901 - The Velocipede displaced the hand trolley. The wooden, two-wheel "run machine" of Baron Karl von Drais (after 50 years from its invention) is superseded by the pedal-driven bicycle. The Ordinary, or Penny-farthing, disappears from the streets. At this time, in England, Ernst-Wilhelm Bohle creates the first Bohle enterprise in the newly developing bicycle industry.
Jump to 2002 - Schwalbe North America is born. Klaus Moser and Celeste Renee Steindl-Moser, owners of the North American distribution for Schwalbe developed into the US marketplace with outstanding success in the first year.
Schwalbe prides itself on outstanding customer service, consistency, a superior product at a competitive price, and the endless pursuit of supporting a great sport and a healthy source of transportation.
