Cycling Weekly Verdict

A lightweight, fast-rolling tyre that’s easy to set up tubeless. But the carcass is quite wide and on wider modern rims the Schwalbe Pro One will size up quite a bit wider than 25mm.

Schwalbe claims that the Schwalbe Pro One tyre is the fastest road tyre out there. That’s something that’s difficult to verify, although the Pro One tyres did seem to pep up my rides significantly when swapped out for another maker’s tubed tyres on my test bike. Tubeless in any case tends to be faster than tubed – see the video of our tests below.
