TEST WINNER: SCHWALBE PRO ONE
9 TUBELESS TIRES IN THE TEST
Tubeless on road bikes is becoming increasingly popular. On the one hand, more tubeless-compatible wheels are available, and on the other hand, more and more complete wheels are being supplied tubeless or with tubeless-compatible wheels. No wonder because the advantages are clear:
- No friction between tire and tube. Lower rolling resistance.
- Can be ridden with less air pressure without sacrificing performance. More comfort and control.
- Very high puncture resistance. No burst tubes. No valve ruptures. Puncture protection fluid seals punctures within tenths of a second.
"Direct comparison of the tires once again reveals the difficulty for manufacturers to combine conflicting requirements: low weight, low rolling resistance, but high puncture protection. Top scores in one category, however, are often bought by weaknesses in others. The best overall package is provided by Schwalbe,..." Moritz Pfeiffer, RoadBIKE EditorSCHWALBE PRO ONE >>
