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

Comments about Schwalbe Big Apple Raceguard 29er Tire:

I bought these for my Surly Karate Monkey I wanted to set up for bike paths and gravel roads and bashing around the city without having to worry about pot holes and curbs. They are really smooth when rolling, provided you keep the pressure low. It's all in the set up. They are fantastic on the bike path or even on the road. They're pretty fast on the flats as long as you keep the hammer down, but they are heavy and any incline will have you slowing way down. OK if you're cruising or just pedaling for a workout. I got 'em to get off the road and away from the roadie pack. I ilke em for that, but I'm shopping for something lighter as they just sap the snap out of my bike. No flats so far either.

    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.
