Schwalbe has developed a tire specifically for the sport of triathlon. Ambitious triathletes today use special time trial bikes and aerodynamically optimized wheels.
The new Schwalbe Ironman is optimized for this set-up. In the optional tubeless version, it is particularly fast and puncture resistant. The name Ironman is a trademark of World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) and is used under license by Schwalbe.
An extremely cut-resistant high-tech fiber makes it possible to ensure even on very light tires an extraordinary high level of puncture resistance. In combination with SnakeSkin sidewall protection, we call it Double Defense Technology.
The twin protector. High Density Guard + SnakeSkin. More safety for light off-road tires is impossible.
One of our most effective inventions for Mountainbikes. SnakeSkin fabric adds only ca. 40-50g per tire. This makes it the most practical protection against sharp rocks that can easily cut the side wall of light racing tires. SnakeSkin - in rocky terrain it is a great call!
