Gravel in Green: Schwalbe’s Special Edition G-One Ultrabite tire in Olive-Skin will add some color and spruce up your steed, but you’ll have to wait until late summer and you’ll have to ride 700x40c.
Olive is the summer tire color for gravel bikers. This was the result of an Instagram survey by Schwalbe. Therefore, the German tire specialist will be launching a special edition G-One Ultrabite Tubeless Easy in olive-skin
color from June.
Freedom and adventure – that’s what the new gravel bikes stand for in their earthy, matt colours, just like Schwalbe’s off-road specialist G-One Ultrabite. Which tire colour best suits the natural look of the bikes has now been decided by thousands of style-conscious Instagram users from the options of Bordeaux-Red or Olive-Green – and they voted for the shade of green.
In addition to the fun limited edition color, the G-One Ultrabite also has outstanding inner properties. Away from the streets, itis designed to bite the ground with its aggressive off-road profile. Its compact cassette studs in the centre of the tread provide max grip and unprecedented traction, while robust side studs provide the rider with safety in extreme lean cornering. The stable construction with modern Tubeless Easy technology (TLE) and the versatile Addix Speedgrip compound increase performance in all parameters – whether on gravel roads, forest paths or trails.
Schwalbe’s G-One Ultrabite Olive-Skin TLE will be available in specialist bike shops from June and costs around $60.00. Available in 700x40c only. Visit www.schwalbetires.com for info on the regular Ultrabite.
