Customer reviews for Schwalbe City Jet 26" Puncture Protection Commuter Tyre

Schwalbe City Jet 26" Puncture Protection Commuter Tyre

Much more than just a basic quality. The foundation of all Active Line tires is a high-quality 50 EPI carcass. Coarsely woven 20 or 24 EPI carcasses can no longer be found in Schwalbe's range. The much more densely woven 50 EPI carcass is far more puncture resistant and robust. At the same time the fabric needs less rubber coating and thus has a reduced weight. Naturally every Active Line tire has a puncture protection belt, a balanced rubber compound, plus a functional and attractive tread design. Simply said: Active Line is reliable, brand quality!

Ready for lift-off!

Posted14 August 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great, sound effects
When my trusty Schwalbe Marathon tyres finally needed to be replaced, I thought I could benefit from some lighter, thinner tyres to go on my hybrid.I didn't have to look far, as those nice people at Schwalbe have just the thing - City Jets!
They certainly live up to their name, as there is a jet engine style whizzing noise (albeit whisper quiet) as you roll along the tarmac. This certainly emphasises how quiet my bike is, and makes a ride in the countryside even more enjoyable than normal.
Looking forward to my next long jaunt on the black stuff

Great Road Slicks for MTBs

Posted26 July 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable
The 26 x 1.5 City Jets have proven great on my Specialized Hardtail. They run smooth, quiet and roll well compared with the knobbly rubber they replaced for my everyday commute and tackled the London to Southend ride in July at great pace.
The only problem is that they leave me wanting more still - maybe I really need to start looking at road bikes for, well, the road?????
Overall if you are riding your MTB on tarmac or good trails these will improve the ride and comfort, but you might just get the bug for more speed!!!

Good value

Posted29 June 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
This is my second purchase of these tyres, the first pair performed well on the C2C coping with some of the off road tracks and a delight on the tarmac. Off road in wet coditions care has to be taken but after all they are a city tyre. So far no puncture encounted

Cheaper than buying a new bike!

Posted07 May 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
I was looking at buying a hybrid to ride to work but as a cheaper option my mate suggested I try 'skinny tyres' on my mountain bike first. As its a Scott Genius carbon fibre I thought its worth a go instead of leaving the old girl collecting dust in the garage!
I bought these City Jets which are excellent. They are fast and grip well on the roads and great for a bit of speed going down hills!
My only negative is they are not good on a loose surface. I ride along a Bournemouth seafront and if you ride through windblown sand the front tyre will slide. In saying that it they are road tyre and for that job they are great!

Speedy and silient

Posted09 April 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, fast
Been using these for daily 10 mile each-way commute through the potholed streets of west London for several months. A couple of punctures but mostly due to nails/ largeish sharps so no complaints. I will be buying these again.
