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.

Comments about Schwalbe Big Apple Raceguard 29er Tire:
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.
