If you want to see the mythical combination of lightweight, fast-rolling, and long-wearing, look no further than the Schwalbe Ultremo R.1 Tire. This race-ready clincher reduces rolling resistance by 10% over the 2009 Ultremo, and it still manages to pack in a protection strip to help you avoid flats.
- Triple Nano Compound is made of tiny particles to reduce internal friction
- High Density Guard is applied radially for maximum puncture protection and decreased rolling resistance
- 180g weight lightens your ride significantly without sacrificing durability

700cX23mm in yellow... 115psi, sweet. its a fast tire, grips well over the whole tread surface, and isnt too harsh. lightly trained but primarily raced on them, great race tire for a bigger rider (im 185+++ lbs). handle occasional scattered gravel pretty well, but had a weird sidewall cut today (1x3mm). i booted it with a fruit-snacks (delicious!) wrapper and was on my way. got home (30 more miles) and the cut hadnt propogated whatesoever. prolly have 150 mi on rear and can still see the center rib from the mold! im glad i ordered a 3rd (always do with any unique color/pattern) but likely will keep racing on this one. 5 star is for the bonktown price, definitely a 4 star at any price tho!
