Schwalbe Procore

Procore – The tire revolution

Award   WINNER 2014
Category   Parts / Components
Company   Schwalbe - Ralf Bohle GmbH

One tire, two pressures: The new double-chamber system, Procore, is set to revolutionize mountain biking. In the inner chamber a pressure of between 4-6 bar makes for extreme puncture protection and gives excellent emergency running properties. In the outer chamber, however, the pressure can be reduced to only 0.8 to 1.5 bar. This provides huge grip even on the roughest terrain. In addition, an increase in damping and traction offers much better bike control. Even in hard use much lighter tires can be riden. "Burping", the dreaded loss of air at low pressure in conventional tubeless systems, is eliminated. The system is a joint development of Schwalbe and Syntace.

Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Efficiency
  • Functionality
  • Utility
  • Degree of innovation
  • Stability

Jury Statement

This solution begs the question why nobody had thought of it before. With relatively simple design flair, the goal of maximum grip and puncture protection has been combined.
