schwalbe name the tire contest

PRESS RELEASE: Racing Ralph, Nobby Nic, Rocket Ron. Schwalbe’s MTB tires are famous for their unique names.

For the first time ever Schwalbe is now also giving the general public an opportunity to help find a name for a new Enduro tire. Under the motto “Name for Fame” we are using Facebook to search for a name we can call the tire that has been developed in close cooperation with top athletes. The super-fast Enduro tire is a perfect match for the challenges of international Enduro circuits and is also equipped with Super Gravity technology. Suggestions can be submitted until February 25, 2013. After the closing date a jury comprising international riders and industry experts will select the finalists. The winner will then be chosen via a direct and final vote on Facebook by March 10, 2013.

The winner can look forward to “Fame and Glory” as well attractive prizes, including an original AMS 150 Cube Action Team bike. All finalists will receive tires labeled with their own suggestion. The “Name for Fame” competition is open online now at
