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.

Also, they look cool!
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.
