The name alone indicates how significant this tire is for Schwalbe. In its tubular form it is used in the Tour de France. As a high-quality folding tire it offers supreme performance. It makes any bike look good.
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.
