Lighter, grippier, faster
The ‘turbo’ of spike tires. With 361 spikes it bites firmly into icy roads. The tungsten carbide core of each spike is clad in weight-saving aluminum. The scales stop at 695 g., yet the tire remains agile and sporty.
One of our most effective inventions for Mountainbikes. SnakeSkin fabric adds only ca. 40-50 g per tire. This makes it the most practical protection against sharp rocks that can easily cut the side wall of light racing tires. SnakeSkin - in rocky terrain it is a great call! Tubeless Ready
No tubes. Schwalbe Tubeless Ready tires make it possible. With three advantages – weight, puncture protection and low rolling resistance.
Sobald der erste Schnee fällt und es Nachtfröste gibt, stellt sich für viele wieder die Frage nach Spikereifen. Die wichtigsten Antworten geben wir schon hier.
The tire bead is specially coated with a rubber mixture that reduces the risk of the tire slipping around the rim. Ad material Copyright Ralf Bohle GmbH
Schwalbe spike tires - Frequently asked questions
Can it also be ridden on a normal road? Without any problem, but if the road is only rarely covered with snow the resulting tire noise may prove annoying. And it won't slide out in cornering? No. The spikes 'claw' really well into normal asphalt roads and even fast cornering is not a problem. Aren't spikes illegal? Bike tire spikes are no problem. Only motor vehicles spikes are prohibited in some countries, because they damage the road. Fast E-bikes are however considered motor vehicles.
Do the tires have to be run in? In order to ensure that spikes are permanently fixed, tires should be run in for about 40km on asphalt, while avoiding any fast acceleration or heavy braking. What is the lifespan of the spikes? All Schwalbe spikes have a core made of extremely hard wearing tungsten carbide, so they can cover a few thousand kilometers. It is normal for the spike edges to round off and for them to become more deeply embedded. Some spikes came out. Can they be replaced? Yes, we now offer a set of replacement spikes incl. tool. What are the tires' limitations? In deep snow even spike tires won't help. In certain areas snow rarely stays around long. Are spike tires still an option? It would be best to mount the tires on your second bike. Depending upon the morning weather, use the most suitable bike. On icy roads, when even cars are having problems, it is a great feeling to be in full control on spike tires.
