Schwalbe make great quality, reliable tires.
The completely revised Road Cruiser is impressive due to its appealing tread design and array of colour options for bicycles from 12” up to 28” inch. The outstanding feature of the new Road Cruiser however is in the tread and it’s called Green Compound. A rubber made of renewable and recycled raw materials which is so good that we can use it for the first time in a conventional bicycle tire.
Green Compound is exclusively available for tires with a black tread.
Tread rubber made from renewable and recycled raw materials.
For the first time ever, using the newly developed special technology from Schwalbe, it’s possible to produce the compound on the tread (tread rubber) of a bicycle tire from renewable and recycled raw materials. The Green Compound offers good performance in respect of grip and durability.
A bicycle tire is made up of many different materials. The tread, however, is made entirely of rubber and accounts for around 70 to 80 percent of the tire’s total rubber content. So, it’s here in particular that using renewably produced rubber is most appropriate.
