What technology does it use in its construction?
The Big Ben from Schwalbe comes in the Raceguard casing offering a higher level of puncture protection, or the lower protection grade K-Guard casing. Endurance compounds are available focusing on longevity, as well as the SBC (Schwalbe Basic Compound) at a lower price point.
What is the intended use?
The Big Ben is suited toward city, touring and fitness applications. With the all over low profile tread, rolling efficiency is high with grip in a range of conditions. Durability has been increased from its sibling the Big Apple with a chunkier tread on offer.
A great all round urban tyre, ideal for fitness rides, commuting or racking up city miles. The broad range of tyre colours, sizes and widths available, make the Big Ben perfect for a range of bike types, from cruisers to BMX's.
