With every pedal stroke, we want to feel how easily our tires roll. In every corner, we want to feel the reliable grip that unites us with the pavement. We want the highest level of safety and reliability, so we can fully focus on our sport. This is exactly what we have been working on.. The result is the new Schwalbe Pro One. Available in a tubeless and a tube type version. Excitement from the first pedal stroke.
Souplesse, the lightness of road riding. It is achieved through intelligent technology of the new Schwalbe Pro One. For an unparalleled supple riding experience.
During our intensive cooperation with top riders and junior athletes, we discovered that road racing cyclists seek a tire that not only suits high speeds and rolls easily, but also offers maximum suppleness or 'souplesse'. More >>
A tire that rides like a tubular tire. A tire that swiftly and accurately respondsto a cyclist’s individual riding style and provides sensitive feedback at all times. A tire with “life”. Logically, the extra suppleness of the Souplesse offers another advantage beside the unique feel. Cyclists do not fatigue as quickly. Consequently, this allows higher performance for longer periods of time. Of course, this can be scientifically proven in a test situation, but cyclists will be able to feel the difference themselves on the bike.less <<
A totally new feel. Right from the start. The new Schwalbe Pro One is not just another development step from the status quo, but a completely new solution. In order to create a unique product, new avenues needed to be explored.
The goal was to develop a fast, light-weight and safe tire, with the additional feature of maximum souplesse. A tire which sets new benchmarks.
Compared to the current Pro One.
The turn-up construction integrates Tubeless Easy technology in the most progressive way possible. This is what makes the tire so supple and comfortable. Riding this tire feels just like the velvety motion of a classic tubular tire.
The liner is made of a specifically developed high-tech polymer fibre that is also used for bullet-proof and anti-stab vests. It provides excellent protection from cuts and punctures, and at the same time, it is extremely light-weight. More >>
Neither rolling resistance nor tire suppleness are compromised by the V-guard. A 14 mm wide belt protects the total tread area, and thus provides an extremely high level of puncture protection. In addition, a triple layer side wall reliably protects against cuts.less <<
Completely new formulation. Addix Race is a multi-compound made of the most innovative and highest quality proven polymers. More >>
Because silica filler contents were increased significantly, the mixing process also had to be fine-tuned. Various specific blends are used for the centre and sides respectively. This increases the grip during cornering without compromising rolling resistance or durability.less <<
To ensure consistent high quality in our tires, we have put a strong emphasis on optimizing our manufacturing process. We have made large investments into innovative machinery and the training of our employees. More >>
The greatest precision and tightest production tolerances are essential when making a product of the highest standard. For Tubeless tires especially this is the only way to ensure simple mounting , as well as a long life.less <<
The state of the art mixing station features real time computer controlled assurance of the correct mixture ratio. This guarantees a consistently high quality rubber mix.
Tire assembly is still a job that requires human, manual labour and knowledge. New semi-automatic machines support our experienced and well trained specialists.
The innovative plant operates with extreme precision, ensuring an even thickness of tire tread. This effectively prevents variations in weight.
Peter Krischio and his team
have worked intensively on
on the new Schwalbe Pro One for several years.
Product Manager Peter Krischio is Schwalbe'sroad tire specialist . Technical knowledge, many years of experience and, of course, his passion for road riding make him an expert.
Peter, your Schwalbe Pro One has won many test awards during the past years. Why did you bother developing a new tire?
If you don’t move forward, you go backwards. Our goal was to develop a tire that has similar riding characteristics to a tubular tire. Souplesse, the special feel on the bike that pros always ask for, was the focus of our efforts. So far, no folding tire had achieved this.
How did you proceed?
First, we questioned everything and determined that we would not achieve this goal by using conventional carcass construction. Therefore, we constructed an entirely new carcass.
How successful was this?
Do you believe that pros will switch in future?
Many road riders try to avoid mounting a Tubeless tire. What would you tell them?

TLE-tires are specifically designed for Tubeless use without a tube, and therefore offer by far the best performance. Confusion is not possible: All Pro One road tires are clearly labelled as “TLE” or “TUBE ONLY” tires.
