Schwalbe SuperGravity

Schwalbe SuperGravity
Super Gravity. The technology of choice – available now.

SUPER GRAVITY has a new carcass construction at its core. The principle is a familiar one from motorbike tyres. 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*.

THE NEXT SHOW STOPPER: The whole tyre (not just the sidewalls) is encased in SnakeSkin puncture protection. It weighs little – and it helps a lot. In fact, it stabilizes and protects while remaining extremely flexible. At the same time it is ideal for the Tubeless Ready application.

SO SUPER GRAVITY MEANS: The tyre walls are more robust. The cap is more flexible. The tyre is lighter. Or in a single sentence: Downhill ruggedness at Enduro weight!

SUPER GRAVITY WEIGHED UP: When combined with Tubeless Ready riders save an impressive 700 grams in weight in comparison with a conventional downhill tyre. Not just somewhere on the frame, but on the rotating mass!

•Stronger apex in the tire walls than folding tyres. It makes snake bites even less likely.
•The wire core in the tyre bead (as in the downhill tyre) has been replaced with an aramid core. Aramid is lighter and stronger than steel wire.
•The TripleStar compound is of course also available for SUPER GRAVITY.
Three different rubber mixes in a single tyre. Each one in the right place.
