With the Schwalbe Ultremo ZLX Clincher Tire, you may have found your ideal racing clincher tire. You won't believe how smoothly it rolls and at only 160 grams per tire, it's among the lightest on the market.
The Ultremo ZLX Clincher Tire is a pure competition race tire. That means that you'll want to save these babies for your race day wheels because it would be a shame to waste them on a training ride. That’s because they're not necessarily built for the sorts of road shards you’ll find on a typical jaunt through the center of town on your way out to the hinterlands for your rides. Rather, a large part of the weight reduction comes from the fact that Schwalbe has not included a puncture protection belt, so you’ll want to make sure to use these mainly when you'll appreciate the weight savings and not have to worry too much about unforeseen glass and other road objects.
We're not saying that you’ll have to worry constantly about flatting mid race. The reality is that this tire is not bombproof. However, it really earns its money in the way it rolls so beautifully and that the feathery lightness will make it perfect for your climbing events. The outstanding grip makes it perfect for criteriums or circuit races that require snap judgments in handling. The all around usefulness of these tires is one reason why the new super team Leopard Trek uses them when they're racing for the top prizes.
The Schwalbe Ultremo ZLX Clincher Tire comes in Black and in 700c x 23mm. It can be inflated to between 85 and 145 PSI. Keeping it properly inflated will reduce the chance of punctures and increase the lifetime of the tire.
