Customer reviews for Schwalbe Big Apple 26" RaceGuard Commuter Tyre

Schwalbe Big Apple 26" RaceGuard Commuter Tyre

RaceGuard - This belt was developed specially with racing in mind. A synthesis of special india rubber and several layers of nylon fabric offers very effective protection against penetration punctures. There is only a minimal increase in weight and rolling resistance of these tires.

Great tyre

Posted01 September 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great, safe
Switched to these from the original knobbly tyres to convert my bike to an electric commuter and am very pleased. The look of the bike is much more interesting and the reflective band means I'll be more visible as the nights draw in. I'm still playing with the pressures but the run comfortable at 32 psi. At 42 psi I am noticeably quicker but its borderline too harsh on anything but the road. I'm still to judge the longevity and puncture resistance but hopefully the combination of this tyre and gunk filled inner tubes will give me a chance to ride without worry.

huge tyres, good for converting a 26 to 29er

Posted24 July 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable
Cons: Expensive
although a bit expensive i find them pretty good for such an application(29er conversion)
I've tried smaller tyres with bigger weight so i would say they are not heavy for their size.
good puncture protection
huge size(2.35) but they make riding in a city with bad road quality pretty comfortable.
