We picked this tyre because it’s the most recommended for wheelchairs. It’s the best option as it combines anti-puncture reliability with the much more efficient rolling resistance than is possible with a solid tyre.
We can only sell these when you order loopwheels; we’re not permitted to sell these as a stand-alone item. When you order loopwheels, you’ll get the option to choose with or without tyres.
This is what Schwalbe say about their tyres:
The Marathon has become the absolute benchmark for puncture-proof pneumatic tires on the wheelchair. Now the all-new version comes again with improved rolling resistance. In addition, the SmartGuard protection belt is made from a proportion of recycled natural rubber. The “anti-aging” sidewall construction can withstand the typical overloading from insufficient inflation pressure for much longer. Also with the dynamic new profile and new look label.
Schwalbe is the only maker to design pneumatic tires specifically for wheelchair users. Our solutions:
2Grip. Hand-friendly tires. The side walls are completely smooth, so the tires glide silkily past the hands. Patent protected and standard on all Schwalbe wheelchair tires.
Flat-less. SmartGuard puncture protected wheelchair tires combine the comfort and light running of pneumatic tires with the puncture protection of PU tires.
Black’n Roll. Wheelchairs with black tires? Schwalbe has made it possible. We developed a special Black’n Roll compound that does not leave unsightly marks on indoor floors. Additionally it is far more robust and much longer lasting.
