    Schwalbe goes whole hog with tubeless.......

    Schwalbe Sees Tubeless as Future of Bike Tires, Introduces new Pro One, G-One Gravel Tire, More



    "The end result is a tire that is 70g lighter than the previous Schwalbe One Tubeless (235g vs 305g). The Pro One also measures faster than any of their other tires with only 17w of rolling resistance compared to 19w for the One tubeless, 22w for the One with a Tube, and 29w for the Durano with a tube. Available in 23, 25, and 28mm sizes the tires have a claimed weight of 235, 255, and 275g respectively. "

    Niiiiiiice! 235gm Pro One?! Awesome!

    I feel like a dummy having just picked up some IRC Roadlites, but I'm gonna score some Pro Ones for sure, since the old One was so damn sweet.

    Oh, and what is a "beach racer"? Gotta look that up...

    Finally some medium-large tubeless slicks! I looked hard for such a thing last year.

    I am confused, though, by the Tubeless Easy designation and what it means in regards to sealant.

    I believe it was RoadBikeAction which said that sealant was "still needed as with the One" for PrOne, but is that right? I thought there were people reporting use of the One sans sealant, without rapid leakdown. I've always thought of sealant being optional in true tubeless road systems, and only necessary when the rim design did not ensure a tight seal.

    I guess I'll check Schwalbe's site, but really, while it's not a big deal to me (I run 1oz sealant in 23c Ones now), I think tubeless wins when it's understood sealant is unnecessary. I think it's cheap insurance, but some do see it as an 'extra step,' and hassle over the common tubed setup, so if we can banish sealant, the better, IMO.
