Schwalbe Addix: new compound in 4 versions for higher grip and mileage
ADDIX is created using completely new formulas developed in Schwalbe research centre, starting from advanced raw materials that have been carefully tested for quality and best sourced worldwide. Significantly increasing the filler content for silica and accurately controlling the entire mixing process with much more attention than before, the development team in California has managed to find the solution to solve the trade-off between grip, rolling resistance, wear and damping control across a much broader range.
ADDIX compound is produced in a completely new mixer using a revolutionary new process. This specific hardware is currently the most advance and precise mixing process in the bicycle industry and allows to vary all the parameters infinitely thus opening up entirely new dimensions of production with higher levels of resulting performance and quality. Depending on the use for which they are intended, Addix compound is available in 4 variants to provide very different performance, but in all cases much higher than traditional Schwalbe PaceStar, TrailStar and VertStar. Each of these variants is characterized by a different color also present on the rubber tread (in the form of a colored strip) so as to more readily understand the hardness of the compound.
ADDIX Speed - The new compound for XC Race specialists rolls even better than the previous PaceStar compound and has a considerably extended service life.
ADDIX SpeedGrip - The compound with by far the widest range of use, almost a universal compound. Ideal for cross-country, all-mountain, and trail. Durability is 62% higher compared to its predecessor, PaceStar, with grip up by 35%.
ADDIX Soft - The compound is used just as often in demanding all-mountain and trail riding as in the enduro and downhill world. It has impressively good rolling characteristics and at the same time outstanding damping, both of which are also evident at low temperatures. It’s also ideal for e-MTBs.
ADDIX Ultra Soft - The new compound with maximum damping is perfect for hardcore use in enduro and downhill. Seriously improved low-temperature properties in terms of grip and damping, compared to the previous VertStar compound, make it eminently suitable for year-round use.
