Tech: High Density Guard, RaceStar Triple Compound
Schwalbe have taken the development of Triple Compound a step further. In the course of innumerable series tests, prototypes, laboratory and practical tests they developed a system of highly specialised single compounds. They arranged these into Compound-Teams, each engineered to fulfil a specific job. The job description of the Ultremo ZX is “as fast as possible” so the Compound-Team is RaceStar Triple Compound.
High Density Guard is a unique puncture protection technology only available from Schwalbe. No other bicycle tyre protection belt is as densely woven and this technology makes it possible to make a tyre that is both light in weight and with an extraordinary high level of puncture resistance. The latest version is HD Speed Guard that is focused on competition tyres. It provides the same level of protection but with significantly reduced rolling resistance.
