REICHSHOF, Germany – Schwalbe received some reports of Ultremo ZX tires mounted on 2013 Cube bikes coming of the rim causing damage to the bead. As the cause of this problem could not be found in either the manufacturing of the tire or in the assembly of the bicycle Schwalbe decided to replace all tires involved.
