Schwalbe Big Betty Folding Tyre
Just Freeride, no cosmetics
The large volume and HEAVY DUTY features make BIG BETTY really tough. The tread is optimized for braking performance and steering. Even so these qualities do not make it too heavy for uphill.
The Schwalbe Big Betty is the right choice for stony or dry conditions due to it's outstanding grip and low rolling characteristics. The tread is adapted for optimum braking performance and accurate steering. This tyre utilises SnakeSkin fabric protection on the outer side walls as well as an internal stiff rubber side wall layer to prevent Snake bite.
Combine these attributes with Triple Nano compound and Limited Slip Technology (LST) that prevents the tyre spinning on the rim, and you have one fantastic tyre.
Schwalbe's new Triple-Nano compound is a completely revised nano-sized polymer base and filler which has made the new triple compound even better. More, smaller sized particles have much more surface area than few larger ones, meaning the contact area is greater. This results in a much improved surface grip.
