The driving force behind the new Fat Albert was clearly Gerrit Gaastra. An outsider and bike guru has pushed us to break new ground and to make the familiar and proven tread design in question. This is inconvenient, but just does innovation. And just like that gives rise to unique tire.
Runs richig well uphill, especially downhill, Fat Albert is the tire for all mountain tour. Power powerful also on the trails in the bike park fun. With aggressive profile, grippy compound and Trailstar additional SnakeSkin gain he feels in rough intended use is equally at home on flowing trails.
The large open lug design gives the rider in every situation a safe driving experience and provides good-natured behavior well into the border area. Fat Albert is designed for maximum control and downhill riding.
Schwalbe offers three different rubber compounds for various intended uses. PaceStar is the mixture for the Cross Country Tour to use.
The body of the tire is made of a resilient material, thus reducing the rolling resistance, the side knobs are made of a soft, grippy compound for best cornering grip and the tread has a harder compound for minimal wear and best run.
A light and flexible woven layer on the sidewall make the tires less sensitive to lateral carcass penetrations by sharp stones.
Innovative tire concepts for professional use. These tires are for Schwalbe's highest standards of quality and innovation.
A new page monofilament fabric brings three advantages over the previous SnakeSkin fabric:
Even better cut resistance, increased breakdown security and especially allows an extremely lightweight tubeless conversion. The use of sealing liquid is required, but the installation is otherwise just as easily as in real tubeless tires. Lange conversion processes with intensive shaking and frequent re-inflation are no longer with Tubeless Easy.
