General Specifications
About the Product
Air suspension built-in. The Big Apple started off the Balloonbike trend more than ten years ago: Comfortable cycling without using complicated technology! Air cushion tires are used as natural suspension. Inflated to around 2 Bar a Balloonbike rolls really easily and with a full suspension effect. A normal tire with a width of 37 mm must be inflated to a rock-hard 4 bar, in order to roll similarly well.
Whether travelling on tarmac or trail, the beefy Super Moto-X offers the best riding characteristics and plenty of comfort. The extra-resilient DoubleDefense construction lets you reach your destination safely, even in the toughest conditions.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Schwalbe Big Apple (11100302) HS 430 Performance RaceGuard Cruiser Bicycle Tire - Wire Bead
  • In point of speed and comfort, it is the ideal tire for either of the two categories.
  • I have roughly 400 miles on these and they are still like new. Awesome tires.
  • Another advantage is the solid construction of these tires.
  • Good rolling speed, very comfortable, can be inflated to a wide range of pressure.
  • The only real downside is limited adherence in wet and / or cold temperatures.
Schwalbe Super Moto-X Wire Compound Dual Tech Green Guard Snake Skin 880g Tire
  • Lots of grip, a lot of absorption of bumps, excellent response.
  • Excellent traction for tight cornering, smooth feeling on the road.
  • Super-low rolling resistance (compared to other MTB tyres) for a relatively wide tyre, but plenty of grip when needed.
  • Very good tires and nice riding. A little stiff but for the ones that want that then they are perfect and that is what i wanted.
  • I thought they were too big, but to my surprise they were basically the same width as my old tires but with a really tall sidewall and fit perfectly.

What customers say about "Features"
Schwalbe Big Apple (11100302) HS 430 Performance RaceGuard Cruiser Bicycle Tire - Wire Bead
  • Cobbles and potholes cease to matter, while the bike isn’t burdened with heavy energy-sapping springs.
  • Good contact patch for street use. Smooth ride and very predictable in most weather conditions.
  • For a street tire i think you wont find a much better tire.
  • I bloody love them, have done about 500 miles on them and only suffered one puncture, and that was on hedge cutting day.
  • When inflated to minimum pressure (2 BAR) they are comfortable but sooo slooow.
Schwalbe Super Moto-X Wire Compound Dual Tech Green Guard Snake Skin 880g Tire
  • Quiet and soft. Excellent grip in sharp turns, wet pavement.
  • With the thicker tire protection built in, I doubt I will have to worry about flats unless I run too low of PSI and pinch it on a curb.
  • These tyres look good and feel good, also puncture resistance sold these to me.
  • Almost no rolling resistance on the street with major grip when turning, you can really get some angle with these on a road surface.
  • Excellent tyres they grip well in all weather conditions and they're a good price too.
