The TOUR, Europe's largest racing bike magazine (12/2014): "Perfect allrounder … smooth ride, the steering behaviour is neutral … very good wet weather grip … high puncture resistance.” The TOUR carried out a 6,000 kilometre endurance test: "Although lighter than the immediate Continental competitor, the ONE nevertheless has plenty of rubber on the tread, resulting in a respectable service life. The rear tyre was puncture-free for almost 6,000 kilometres: it has become slightly angular, but is still well protected against cuts and small stones. As far as the front tyre is concerned, apart from the puncture caused by the blackberry bush thorn in Southern Italy, the distance was covered with virtually no problems.“
Hand making a tubular tire is an art in itself. So, because production differs distinctly from the manufacture of regular bicycle tires, they are exclusively manufactured in a new Schwalbe factory. For each, individual "hand made tubular" a lot of careful craftsmanship is required, so only the most skilled people are employed to construct each tire and, by hand, stitch and glue together each part.
