TUBELESS ROAD BIKE WHEELS TESTED FOR COMPATIBILITY BY SCHWALBE

ASSESSMENT CATEGORIES

Mounting
How easy is it to mount a Schwalbe road tire?

Inflation
How easy is inflation? Is an air pump sufficient, or do you need a compressor or Tire Booster?

Derailing safety
We’re particularly conscious about safety. We therefore place extremely high demands on the safety level of the tire-wheel combination and use higher safety tolerances when testing. Some wheels in our tests do not achieve our level of safety. Nevertheless, these wheels can be well suited for tubeless use if the wheel manufacturer’s maximum air pressure is taken into account. These tires must not be inflated to the maximum pressure indicated on the tire.
Be sure to observe the wheel manufacturer’s air pressure recommendations.
