Schwalbe's new love interest is the queen of all-rounders in Gravity Sport.
In this model of Schwalbe, the best features of Muddy Mary and Dirty Dan are united.
With her shoulder lugs she clutches at every turn aggressively into the ground, holding the grip. The Intermediate profile provides control on almost all soil conditions and even on stony trails a good choice. Through the open profile the tire also cleans in wet ground as if by magic.
Because of Downhillkarkassenaufbaus (double carcass) it also offers excellent damping characteristics, which are not to be underestimated on the technical Bikekparkstrecken.
VertStar is especially recommended for the front wheel. The coarser the intended use, the better he can play to its advantages! As the rear tire rubber compounds PaceStar or Trailstar are better suited.
Schwalbe uses three different rubber compounds for tire to the best properties to be combined.
In VertStar the center of the tread is made of a very soft, very grippy rubber mixture. The side knobs are provided with an even softer and downright sticky rubber compound. The tire stuck with this structure almost to the underground!
The carcass is composed of an elastic rubber for low rolling resistance. In addition, these rubber forms the core of the tunnel to prevent the buckling at high load.
The extra-strong Downhill version. With all of the Freeride features (SnakeSkin sidewall, Triple Compound, Limited Slip Technology). Plus a double carcass and strong Snake Bite protection. That adds up to more stability at the lowest pressure.
One of the most effective inventions that we ever made for Mountainbikes. Only about 40-50 g heavier a tire by the SnakeSkin fabric. It is therefore optimally protected against contact with sharp rocks that quickly slit the side wall in light competition tires. SnakeSkin - in rough intended use the best choice!
