Schwalbe has unveiled a new gravel race tyre in its G-One range. Designed with speed in mind, Schwalbe says the G-One R is good for use on light terrain, gravel roads, and asphalt.
Schwalbe has constructed the new tyre using its Super Race carcass. This casing is said to offer a smooth ride with low rolling resistance with high levels of road and off-road grip. Schwalbe adds its V-Guard puncture protection layer under the tread to maintain a level of air holding and durability required for gravel riding.
Notably, the tyre features a closely packed tread pattern that offers a “Boomerang profile.” Where Schwalbe previous gravel tyres have traditionally offered a shallow depth tread, these are noticeably more raised.
The new tyres also come with Schwalbe’s Tubeless Easy stamp and are available in 700 x 40 and 45 mm options. No word of 650B options, but that’s expected given the smaller wheel size isn’t so common in gravel racing.
James Huang has a pair in for review, keep an eye out for that in the months to come.
