There was a lot to see this past weekend in Emporia, Kansas. As the gravel racing world descended on the small town for a return to gravel racing through the Flint Hills, bike companies used the opportunity to show off some new products. For Schwalbe, that meant the launch of the new G-One R gravel race tire.
Spotted and photographed by Dan Cavallari, the tire features an all new “boomerang profile for the best uphill traction and ideal rolling behavior.”
Built on their new Super Race carcass which offers their most supple ride, the tire claims to also provide low rolling resistance and high puncture protection. The tires also include their V-Guard puncture resistance layer and Addix Race rubber compound for speed and control over all surfaces.
Currently only offered in 700c x 40 or 45mm sizes, both models feature their ‘Transparent Skin’ sidewalls and use a folding, TLE tubeless bead. Claimed weights are given as 480g for the 40mm and 520g for the 45mm tire, with pricing listed as €69.90.
