Product Description

Much more than just a basic quality. The foundation of all Active Line tyres is a high-quality 50 EPI carcass. Coarsely woven 20 or 24 EPI carcasses can no longer be found in Schwalbeâ€TMs range. The much more densely woven 50 EPI carcass is far more puncture resistant and robust. At the same time the fabric needs less rubber coating and thus has a reduced weight. Naturally every Active Line tire has a Kevlar Guard belt, a balanced rubber compound, plus a functional and attractive tread design. Simply said: Active Line is reliable, brand quality!

I bought these tyres to replace a chunky tyre as I had changed the type of ground that I was regularly travelling over. FANTASTIC, why did I not buy these earlier. They added 3.5 - 4 mph to my average speed on an average 20 mile run. Only draw back was the pressure, 60 - 85 psi, wow have my arms had a workout getting to 85psi!.On the road they grip well and I have noticed a marked increase in the response to my moving the handlebars (less road resistance). They are good for mixed road / tow path use and have proven themselves over and over again.

I already use the Schwalbe City Jet Semi-Slick Puncture Protected Rigid Tyre 26 x 1.95 Blackon my mountain bike hybrid, no complaints but over time as I felt resistance when riding, and getting them to fit under my mudguards ETC Mtb Full Length Mudguard Set 26 x 1.75-2.125 Black was requiring constant adjustment.
I realized thinner tires were required, as I had used City Jet previously and the supplier was very prompt, I ordered the 26"x1.5 version. They fitted perfectly, but be careful when fitting as you can crimp the inner tube easily. Inflation is 80psi and my pump managed it although at the 70psi mark it was hard going.
On the road they are excellent, as much grip as the fatter Tyre but less rolling resistance, it gives you a faster and easier cruising speed and the excellent grip in the wet is still there. The puncture protection is still superb as my daft brother dropped nails in the driveway and it went over them easily.
A great product I would recommend to anyone and they are cheap too with free delivery.

I cycle over 100 miles a week commuting to and from work, until recently I have been using my Claude Butler Milano with Schwalbe Lugano tyres and after three punctures in less than 24 hours decided to change across to a mountain bike over the winter months.

The first two weeks on standard chunky mountain bike tyres on a cheap heavy mountain bike killed my legs and added loads of time onto my daily commute, so after reading other reviews of this tyre decided to give it a go.

My first trip into work with these tyres took around five mintues off of my time the previous week. No other changes were made to the bike, so the time saving can only have come to the greatly reduced rolling resistance these tyres offer over normal mountain bike tyres.

I have now used these for a fortnight on a road and cycle path commute in dry, wet and now icey conditions and the grip seems good for a tyre in this price bracket and despite taking a daily hammering from pot holes and high drop kerbs they have not suffered any punctures (yet!). To get the best out of these tyres they do need to be inflated to their maximum allowable pressure.

When this bike needs another new set of tyres, I would get another set of these without thinking twice about it.

If you are looking to make your daily commute quicker, easier and more enjoyable, get yourself a decent road bike - but these do come a very close second!

This tyre makes a big differance to standard mountain bike tyres on the road. Do make sure that your inner tubes are suited to the size of this tyre when fitting though otherwise you could end up trapping, pinching and piercing them. I had to go out and buy slightly smaller tubes from my local bike shop.

Let me start by saying using these tyres substantially increased my top speed and lowered the amount of effort I had to exert to cycle.

That's where the benefits to these tyres ends really.

The side walls are so thin it inspires little faith in the longevity of this tyre although I haven't used them long enough to comment. The deal breaker for me was the amount of punctures I got, 3 in 3 days. After the third time these got thrown back in the shed and my chunky, slow mountain bike tyres went back on.

For information these tyres were only used for commuting on main roads with the occasional side street. Unless you're in the city (I suppose the name suggests this anyway) I cannot recommend them.

Replaced my knobbly tyres with city jets, all fine on roads & tracks, but soon as you hit loose shale , stones , grit, the tyres become lethal, buy these but stick to decent tracks & they are a good purchase

Don't really "off road" my mountain bike anymore and so changed my two 26X1.95 knobbly tyres for these after reading the reviews here. The bike is significantly easier to pedal, with a resulting increase in average speeds. I was surprised at how they changed the handling characteristics of the bike with it becoming more responsive.

These tyres are half the price here compared with on the high street and very easy to fit (I've got savage steel tyre levers which are brilliant). Don't be put off by the apparent flimsiness of the side walls. I run mine at 85PSi as my rims have the lip (you will see what I mean when you look at the destructions). I'm very pleased with these tyres but would recommend that you invest in a track pump to make life easier on yourself. I got one from Argos for a tenner in a half-price sale. Bargain all round.
