The legend lives on. Developed over 20 years ago, at that time it was a quantum leap in performance. The first high-quality tire suitable for reliable touring and everyday use. These characteristics quickly made it popular and today it is still Europe’s most riden touring tire. In the newest version with KevlarGuard and Allround tread compound it can fulfil everything that is expected of a Marathon tire: Effective puncture protection, durability and excellent handling characteristics.
Suspension included. The Big Apple began the Balloonbike trend back in 2001. Comfortable cycling without the need for expensive technology. At the time it was a revolutionary idea. Today it is a growing trend and there are now a large selection of Balloonbikes with everything designed around the Big Apple. Available in several cushy sizes.

The first special tire for tricycle recumbents. Tire construction and profile contours are coordinated with the special requirements of a multi-track vehicle in mind. Tricycle recumbents exert completely different loads on tires than conventional bicycles. Nevertheless the tires must be light and fast, because drive is still achieved through muscle power and should therefore be as effective as possible. Massive motor vehicle tires are out of the question. The Tryker takes on the challenge of minimal rolling friction and high durability for the recumbent tricyclist. It has ECE-R75 certification for faster E-Bikes.

Punctures become obsolete with the MARATHON PLUS! The SmartGuard layer made from a flexible, special rubber offers particular resistance to shards of glass and flints. Even a thumbtack cannot penetrate this protective layer. The SmartGuard belt does not increase rolling resistance. The MARATHON PLUS rolls as easily as a tire without protection.

Created using new construction principles and with new high tech materials. Rolling resistance and weight have been radically reduced! Radial Technology. For the first time, our High Density Technology makes it possible to integrate a protection belt radialy into a bicycle tire. The tire retains its shape better. Internal friction and rolling resistance are reduced. Triple Nano Compound. A completely revised nano-sized polymer base and fillers has made our triple compound even better. Small particles - less internal friction. Ceramic. The addition of a ceramic coating is entirely new. Small pieces of glass that remain embedded in the tire and slowly cut their way through a protection belt are now stopped by the tough, ceramic particles that blunt the edges of the glass preventing its destructive migration. The 700 x 23 tire weighs in at a tiny 180 grams. We currently stock black only. However, we can order silver, yellow, red, blue, and pink. Please call for special color orders.
Designed for an 18" wheel, this tube also works very well for narrow 20" (406) applications. We've used this tube for years in Gran Prix and Stelvio tires on narrow rims. In presta only. Many guys have gone with this over the years because it seemed to be the only tube narrow enough to handle the 28mm 406 tires. The Continental tubes were too fat even though they stated they were for the Gran Prix. However, the Schwalbe tubes (AV6 & SV6) fit both the Gran Prix and Durano/Stelvio very nicely.

The industry favorite for several years, Pedro's tire levers have had one problem in that yours tend to disappear. Every lever is made from the strongest plastic available.The chisel tip makes it easy to insert beneath the bead, and the slightly thicker shape keeps the tire lever from slipping out from under the bead . The tough handle makes it easy to remove the tightest of tires.
The Hors Categorie is a professional-level road racing tire with a 120 TPI casing. The Hors Categorie offers two different rubber hardnesses to optimize your ride. The harder 62a center has ultra-low rolling resistance and wears slowly, while the softer 57a side offers incredible grip in tight corners. The casing is nylon with a 2-ply breaker for strength and durability. "After 9 years of racing on tubulars, I wasn't looking forward to putting clinchers on my race bike. When I put 130psi in my Maxxis Hors Categorie tires, I couldn't tell the difference except in my wallet." -Luke Stockwell, Jittery Joe's/Choco-Andean Eco-Coffee Pro Cycling Team
