There’s a new tire available for the Brompton folding bike. It’s called the Brompton Schwalbe Marathon Racer Tan wall, 16 inch.
Well, it’s not actually new. It was launched originally with the Brompton Explore limited edition bike.
But this year of tire (and component) shortages – 2021, it has, maybe surprisingly been added to the official range of Brompton tires (though availability could be limited).
The Brompton Marathon Racer
The Schwalbe Marathon Racer with tan wall was first seen on the Brompton Explore. The Schwalbe Marathon Racer is now available as an upgrade for any Brompton bike. This tire has impressive handling characteristics and is excellent for wherever your adventures take you.
The folding bead on the Marathon Racer makes it lighter at 260g (9.2 oz). Compared to the standard Marathon Racer at 465 grams (16.402 oz), with a steel bead.
It has good tread depth and uses the SpeedGrip compound for the best handling characteristics and lifespan. Raceguard Nylon fabric under the tread gives excellent puncture protection. The Tanwall tires offers your Brompton a unique look with its tan sidewalls and ensures your bike looks as good as it feels to ride.
