Schwalbe Compounds Explained
No matter how experienced you are as a cyclist; tyre compounds can often be confusing with companies often using terms such as PaceStar, Vertstar and so on, so here's a quick guide to break down Schwalbles Compound list.
PaceStar - For Race Mountain Bikes, All Mountain and Enduro. Super-fast with a combination of low rolling resistance and high durability. The tyre shoulders have been made softer to improve cornering sppeds on rough terrain but without compromising on rolling resistance and durability.
TrailStar – Designed for Enduro and Freeride Mountain Bikes. Their Triple Nano compound was unsuitable performance-wise and the rolling resistance of Gooey Gluey was too high so Schwalbem developed the Trailstar. TrailStar has substantially more grip, better damping and handling control. Nevertheless, the compound is not overly heavy, making it suitable for climbing too. As a result it is the best choice if you are after an all round tyre that can aggressively tackle decents but climb like a XC/Enduro tyre.
VertStar – Specifically designed for Downhill and Freeride Mountain Bikes. It is a further development of Schwalbe's successful Gooey Gluey compound, but now even softer with extremely good damping properties. Filled with all of Schwalbe's top end technology such as snakeskin sidewalls to reduce the risk of pinch flats and double thickness casing for increased flat protection and ultimate stability when running low tyre pressures.
SUPER GRAVITY - has a new carcass construction at its core. The principle is a familiar one from motorbike tires. We have taken the best features and developed them further for the MTB. For SUPER GRAVITY the sidewalls are made up of four layers of carcass material, but there are only two layers underneath the cap. As A result the tire walls are more robust. The cap is more flexible. The tire is lighter. Or in a single sentence: Downhill ruggedness at Enduro weight!
