Schwalbe Tacky Chan Tire 29 x 2.4
Schwalbe has dubbed the new Tacky Chan as “The fastest downhill tire in the world”. Developed over two years in the World Cup races, including with DH overall World Cup winner Amaury Pierron, the Tacky Chan was optimized for precision. It features more stable shoulder lugs compared to the Magic Mary for even more aggressive cornering and long braking edges for better braking performance.
Schwalbe Tire Compounds:
ADDIX Soft (orange): Provides outstanding ride qualities including excellent damping and powerful grip. It's a compound that’s amazingly good fun and yet is significantly more durable than the previous TrailStar compound. Suitable for year-round use.
ADDIX Ultra Soft (purple): For hardcore use in enduro and downhill. Sensationally good damping has been further improved over the previous VertStar compound, while at the same time ADDIX Ultrasoft is suitable for all-weather use due to significantly improved low-temperature properties when it comes to grip and damping.
Schwalbe Tire Casings:
Super Trail: The construction is designed to combine moderate weight and reduced rolling resistance with high cornering traction and puncture protection. A stable carcass with two layers on the side wall and three layers under the tread. Fabric layer over the entire tire together with APEX for additional protection. Tubeless easy.
Super Gravity: The tread and strong shoulders are protected in this extremely stable construction by four carcass layers in combination with a stable fabric layer (bead to bead). A special APEX layer protects against punctures and increases the lateral stiffness of the tire. Thanks to the turn-up construction, the tire remains unusually flexible for a particularly smooth ride. Tubeless easy.
Super Downhill (DH): The most robust and stable (super) construction is double-layered. Six carcass layers protect the tread even at very low air pressures. The side walls are reliably protected against cut and pinch damage by a combination of four carcass layers and a stable fabric layer. A special APEX layer protects against cuts and increases the lateral stiffness of the tire. Due to the very stable folding core, the tires are also Tubeless easy.
