About Bike Tires
Investing in a good robust bike tire means no stopping over punctures, care-free ride over potholes, shards and other picky objects sprawled all over the road. Before you buy a bike tire, make sure you’re aware of the correct bike size, your purpose of buying a specific tire and what kind of bike riding(road, urban, off-road) you’re into. Road tires are sleek and smooth, can retain high pressure. Hybrid tires are suitable for everyday city rides whereas mountain bike tires come equipped with treads for firm grip and handling over the uneven surface.
For over 70 years Schwalbe has dominated the two wheeled tire industry in Germany and Europe, being voted best MTB tire brand in Germany for the past two years. From the very early beginnings where the company founder, Earnest-Wilhelm Bohle capitalized on the developing cycle industry, to the ultra modern distribution facility near Cologne, Schwalbe has continued to design and manufacture some of the finest bicycle tires available. Schwalbe's success is due in part to the effort it makes in product development from lab tests at the manufacturing facility to the hardest proving grounds of all, professional cycle racing. 'Team Gerolsteiner' achieved a very creditable 7th place overall in 2004 Tour de France and the unique performance of team captain Davide Rebellin winning three major classic races back to back using Schwalbe tire. Other notable successes include Normann Stadler winning the infamous Ironman triathlon in Hawaii, riding Schwalbe Stelvio tires.
