Air suspension built-in: the Big Apple wired tyre by Schwalbe
The Big Apple started off the balloon bike trend ten years ago: Comfortable cycling without using complicated technology! Air cushion tyres are used as natural suspension. Inflated to around 2 bar a balloon bike rolls really easily and with a full suspension effect. A normal tyre with a width of 37 mm must be inflated to a rock-hard 4 bar, in order to roll similarly well.

E-Bike Ready 25:
For standard pedelecs with pedal assistance up to 25 km/h, legislators require no specific tyres to be used. However, loads and average speeds of these bicycles are higher than that of normal bicycles. Therefore, Schwalbe recommends only certain tyres as " E-bike ready" (all Marathon, all Energizer, Big Apple, Big Ben and Smart Sam Plus tyres).
