The Shredda Evo 40-406 is finally gone

Today, Theo from Velomobiel.nl congratulated me for ordering the very last Shredda Evolution in 40-406 size from his stock.

last Shredda 40-406

Since Velomobiel.nl bought all remaining stock of the Shredda Evo in 40-406 size when Schwalbe discontinued the tire about three years ago, it seems the Shredda Evo just achieved unobtanium status.

    What tyre are you going to use after that is worn out?

      Hi Tony,

      It seems the unofficial successor of the Shredda Evo is the Schwalbe G-One Speed in 40-406, but I’ll first try the Continental Contact Speed in 28-406. Since the Conti is narrower, it doesn’t scrape on the wheel wells of the Milan around narrow corners and compared to the Shredda Evo and G-One Speed, is much cheaper.

      Ok, little update:
      I didn’t tried the G-One Speed yet, but the Conti Contact Speed is neither quick, nor grippy enough to replace the Shredda Evo. The Speed Contact was rather a disappointment.
      However, I’ve tried the Maxxis DTH and quite like it as a Shredda replacement.
