Tubeless road tire technology is finally being adopted broadly by manufacturers and riders alike for its inherent advantages over tubed tires. Schwalbe recently entered the tubeless road tire market as a welcome addition. The German company brings their outstanding triple compound technology and precision manufacturing to bear in an effort to create a tire that has the right blend of performance, protection, and ease of installation.
My initial impression of the Ultremo ZX tubeless tire was formed while mounting the tires to a pair of HED Ardennes+ SL wheels. With the included Schwalbe Easy Fit bead lubricant applied I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to not only install the tire without the use of tire levers, but I was able to inflate it with a standard floor pump! The Doc Blue sealant that came in the package was also easy to inject through the valve with the core removed. From start to finish I had both tires ready to go in ten minutes without spilling a drop of sealant.
I’m happy to report that the positive installation experience continued out on the road. From the smooth ride to the amazing grip these tires offer, there is a lot to love about the Schwalbe Ultremo ZX Tubeless Tire Set.
