General Specifications
About the Product
Magic Mary the favorite among downhill and enduro experts. The perfect choice for virtually any track. Intermediate tread: maximum brake traction and corner grip even on extremely muddy terrain thanks to strong shoulder studs and the aggressive, open tread design.
Schwalbe wanted to create “only” the fastest tyres for beach racing. Huge volume. Minimal profile. Minimum weight. In addition the latest Tubeless Easy technology. The result is a tyre with the lowest rolling resistance they have ever created.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Schwalbe Magic Mary Super Gravity Folding Bead TrailStar Tire
  • Very grippy and tough tires for off road riding. Great for muddy and technical descents or ascents.
  • The spiky, slightly ramped centre tread generates superb braking grip, while tall, well-supported shoulder blocks dig up unsurpassed cornering bite.
  • For aggressive riding conditions, the Magic Mary is a great performer.
  • They are very durable even on lower pressure and they are grippy as hell even on wet and muddy ground.
  • These are a bit of a grip monster, especially in winter, but the very open tread blocks bobble more and are less assured and drifty on hardpack.
Schwalbe Big One Snakeskin Tubeless Easy 29 x 2.35 Folding Bead Black with OneStar Compound
  • Amazing urban MTB tyres. Excellent quality low rolling resistance and very durable.
  • Easy to set up tubeless on stans arch rims with just a regular floor pump. Once on the bike they roll really fast.
  • Able to run low tire pressure, it's the single most significant thing I have ever done to make my ride faster and easier.
  • Very fast rolling tyre with good off-road performance.
  • They're light and fast on pavement, and surprisingly capable offroad as well.

What customers say about "Features"
Schwalbe Magic Mary Super Gravity Folding Bead TrailStar Tire
  • The new Addix compound feels confident in the steeps on wet or dry rocks and roots.
  • Evo Snakeskin and it has a good ratio of sidewall thickness/weight.
  • Cornering is very good and it's quite forgivilng when you're tired and your technique or line choices are lousy.
  • The tyre appears virtually new even after being used over a few months of riding a mixture of conditions and trails including many uplift and descent days.
  • The top of the tyre is nice and supple though, so it feels far less wooden over trail chatter than many beefy tyres.
Schwalbe Big One Snakeskin Tubeless Easy 29 x 2.35 Folding Bead Black with OneStar Compound
  • A light and flexible carcass makes the tyre highly resistant to scrubbing.
  • The monofilament SnakeSkin fabric on the sidewall makes tubeless conversion for MTB’s extremely easy and safe - at the same time it offers the best cut protection for the sidewall.
  • The tire is silent, with minimal resistance, exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend it, sure.
  • Back to the ride, they provide an exceptionally smooth and quiet ride, absorbing smaller bumps and imperfections.
  • Very poor traction in wet off road - wheel spins easily under load.
