Schwalbe Ultremo tyres review
The Ultremo is a race tyre that happens to come with puncture protection, like Michelin’s Pro 3, but this Schwalbe tyre is so light you wouldn’t think there was any protection at all.
In fact it’s not just tougher than the Pro 3 but tougher than most race tyres and many training tyres too, thanks to a dense weave of Vectran under the tread.
Softer shoulders give decent cornering grip, like the Pro 3, although the Ultremo’s rolling efﬁciency is a little lower by comparison. For bigger mileages or worse conditions, it has the edge on the Michelin.
