THE NEW CROSS-COUNTRY BROTHERS
RACING RAY UND RACING RALPH
Two new tires are joining forces to meet the challenges of modern cross-country tracks: With the Racing Ray on the front wheel and the new version of the Racing Ralph on the rear wheel, SCHWALBE is setting the new standard combination for cross-country cycling.
Cross-country has developed rapidly in recent years. Jumps, changes of direction, ramps and root passages - all in rapid succession. The tracks are becoming more complex and faster.
"The tires for these modern routes need to roll extremely easily while remaining reliable and durable." The tread has to perform perfectly on a wide variety of surfaces and in all weather conditions. Cornering, acceleration, grip, rolling resistance and braking performance need to be perfectly balanced", stresses Markus Hachmeyer, Senior Product Manager for MTB Tires. "We could only achieve the perfect solution by developing special tires for the front and rear."
