Schwalbe is launching all its MTB tyres in the Evo line with a new compound developed from scratch.

The brand has claimed that the compound, which goes by the name of Addix, solves the typical trade-off between grip, rolling resistance and wear across a much wider range than before.

For the new compound, Schwalbe used state-of-the-art and precise mixing technology which is not generally used in the bicycle tyre industry. The mixing process allows for an almost infinite number of parameter variations and with the new production hardware set up especially for Addix, this gives rise to new formulas.

Senior product manager at Schwalbe Markus Hachmeyer said: “Never before have we at Schwalbe taken such an ambitious step with the compound. With a new team and a new mixer, we haven’t left a single stone unturned with the formula and even less with the process. The result, quite simply, is that with Addix, we’ve got even better. In terms of durability, our tyres have become much more impressive across the board, and the low-temperature properties are now excellent; not only in the soft compounds.”

Schwalbe Evolution tyres with Addix compound will be available at specialist bicycle retailers from June 2017.
