One clincher to rule them all.
Built as its ultimate race tires, the One Clincher Tires deliver the best performance Schwalbe has to offer. With a production facility exclusively churning out tires using the OneStar rubber compound that makes these tires so fantastic, these clinchers are feathery light without the drawbacks commonly associated with lightweight, grippy race tires.
Schwalbe’s new compound, OneStar, made these tires faster, lighter, and more durable than anything it's produced before. It also helped them achieve an extremely low rolling resistance for the One Tires. They cut no corners with these tires, dedicating an entire factory with fixed vulcanization and production units used exclusively for the One.
The OneStar triple compound was designed to have incredibly low rolling resistance without sacrificing grip in wet and dry weather like other high-efficiency tires. Schwalbe improved cut resistance while achieving weights as low as 205g per size.

- Q & A
These are suuuuper tacky. I've taken them on some rough roads and I've taken a couple small chunks out of the rubber, but they've held strong and rail corners I wouldn't imagine on other tires I've used.
The best racing tire
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
*Edit* Still my go to race tire. One weakness: they unclinch much easier than other tires. I have almost wrecked in two races only to pinch flat moments later because the tire has come unclinched. However, barring disaster these have good puncture resistance and grip and low rolling resistance so I'm still using them.
Without a doubt, these are the best racing tires I have used. I have put 1600 miles on my current pair of 25mm Schwalbe Ones without a single flat. This is incredible considering that it includes riding and racing in March and April when the Ohio roads were still covered in cinders and salt from all the snow. I am guessing that I will be able to squeeze 2000 miles out of my first pair, which is a lot more miles than I can usually get out of a non endurance/training tire. The tire rides phenomenally, with low rolling resistance, good road "feel," and great traction/cornering in the wet or dry. My previous go to tire was the 4000s, but I ended up buying these tires because I had 4 different 4000s II tires (won or purchased at different times both 23 and 25mm) fail on me with sidewall cuts (the tube would stick out of the hole). This tire rides just as well as the 4000s with much better flat protection. The flat protection is good enough that I trust this tire to train and race on in early Spring, whereas, in the past I would keep running my winter 4seasons tires until May because of flats from cinders (small, sharp rocks put down on country roads to increase grip in the snow). This is the best all around tire I have ever used. I plan to use it in all but the dead of winter. In winter I switch back to conti 4seasons for even more flat and sidewall protection at the price of much higher rolling resistance.
Well rounded tire.

To me, this tire feels in between the thick comfy ride of the 4KGP and the sharp edge of the Michelin Pro4. The wear is as to be expected for a softer compound but it has a good solid ride. I have only put about 500 miles on them. All tires were compared with Vittoria Latex/ Cervelo S5.
Can I use 700c 18-23mm tubes in a 25 mm tire?
you can yes
