Schwalbe Big Apple 29" Tire

Schwalbe Big Apple Raceguard 29" Tire

The Schwalbe Big Apple kickstarted the Baloonbike trend back in 2001 and the 29" version of the Big Apple delivers the same exceptional ride quality of the original. This high volume tire acts as a form of built-in suspension, absorbing over 36% of vibrations at the handlebar. The Raceguard casing features a double layer of nylon fabric for plenty of protection without adding too much weight. Well suited for commuting duties, fire roads, or those long distance touring hauls, the Big Apple is truly one-of-a-kind.

Features:

  • 700c / 29er size
  • Sidewall lists german measurement - 28x2.35
  • 28 = 700c
  • This is a wide tire, please check to make sure you frame and fork have the proper clearance before purchasing
  • Weight: 898g

Wow, Like riding a monster truck!
I bought these for a race-ready 2009 Gary Fisher Cobia 29er with the intent of using them for my urban wheelset. They are so BIG and simply look Awesome. It's like riding a monster truck. They are designed as a low pressure tire for the impact absorbing effect but I am running mine a little hard for the speed. Even though they are a 1/4 in. wider than my aggressive treaders I have gained about 7 min. on my daily 6.6 mile commute. I am a CLYDE at 260 and wondered if the low pressure aspect would be a problem but none what so ever. These tires rock.

PROS: Puncture resistant, Fast, Comfy

BEST USES: Hard Pack Trails, Commuting

Excellent tire for an MTB commuter
I used these tires front and rear on my hardtail to commute to work. Excellent choice as they offer low rolling resistance when inflated to a high pressure, but lots of volume for a comfy ride on the mtb. Install was easy with tire levers.

Also, they look cool!

Not Bad for Commuting
I got these 700X50mm for my Specialized Crosstrail. I was told that they are fast tires that provide a smooth ride even off road. I don't think they are better than my original tires that came with my Crosstrail. Yes they might be a little faster, but my original tires were pretty old. They roll pretty good with not much resistance on paved surface, but taking them off road is a different story.

When I ride on packed gavel, I constantly find debris in my hair. Little pieces of gravel get picked up by the tire threads and land on my head and back. They also don't feel very maneuverable, not like original ones. And forget about riding in the mud, they just slip-slide all over.

So if you are only riding on the paved surface, than these tires are OK. But I would not recommend them for Crosstrail.

Can I run these tires tubeless with Stan's sealant?
John on May 20, 2016
The Big Apple being a volume/comfortable ride tire, I would really like to run these Tubeless- is this doable?
Clyde B on Dec 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can use the big apple tires tubeless. I use them on stans no tubes 29 wheels and you have to use a lot of sealant and run them at low pressure < 40 psi. Do not run them higher as they can pop off.
How much do the 29er Big Apples weigh in the 2.35"?
