Air suspension built right in: the Big Apple Wired Tyre by Schwalbe


The trend towards the balloon bike began in 2001 with the Big Apple: comfortable cycling without any complicated technology! The air cushion of the tyres acts as a natural form of suspension. With approx. 2 bar, a Balloonbike rolls wonderfully easily and with full suspension effect. A normal tyre with a width of 37 mm has to be inflated hard as nails at 4 bars to roll similarly well.

Guidelines for Replacing E-bike Components:


Before you replace components on your e-bike, please read through the guidelines for component replacement for CE-marked E-bikes/pedelecs with pedal assistance.

Great tyres for bikepacking
I bought these tyres to put on my new bikepacking bike I built, for (bad) roads and gravel and they performed great.
Rolls relatively quickly and smoothly on the road, but still dampens rougher terrain at 2-3 bar.
You barely feel cobbles on these, will gladly be keeping these to use for daily commuting in a city with bad roads and cobbles.

This is my 2nd pairs of this tire, after I used the 1st pairs for over 2 years. I love the feeling of it, smooth and can roll over anything without worrying of getting flat. If as Schwalbe made this version in UST I would definitely buy them too. Highly recommend for those who are looking for a reliable tire for street use and commuter around city or even exercise. Not recommended for muddy terrain.

Лучший вариант для города и загородных поездок! Советую вариант 50-559, т.к. он имеет лучший накат.

pair of this tyres has many thousands km since September 2015, almost everyday except frosty winter time and rainy days, and they are not weared finally yet. i am using it usually for b2w, as well as touring/recreation on unsurfaced roads in dry condition. Yes, they are a bit heavy, (it is good training effect ))) , but it does not matter for me. Wide tyre with low pressure also good on sandy way.
