Schwalbe has completely revised the extra-wide Big Apple for an improved ride quality and completely worry-free performance.

This 29 inch/700c version features an updated, water channeling tread, a more pronounced profile and a RaceGuard puncture protection belt to ward off flats. Its 2.35 Inch width gives built-in suspension for serious comfort on rough roads and city streets. Great for larger riders or cargo bikes (320 lb max. rider weight).

The updated Big Apple also features the Marathon Endurance tread compound for excellent wear resistance. Schwalbe states that this tire is "E-Bike Ready," meaning the whole Marathon range and the new Big Apple are suitable for use on most E-Bikes. However, these tires (except some Marathon sizes) do not carry the ECE designation required for some faster e-bikes.

The Big Apple HS 430 is available in Black with a reflective sidewall stripe. 30-55 recommended PSI. 29 x 2.35 Inch (700c x 60mm; 60-622 ISO). 898 grams. Max load. 320lbs.

Weight: 898 grams

Application: Commuting/Urban 

ISO (ETRTO) Size: 60-622 mm

Max Pressure: 55 PSI

Threads Per Inch: 67 TPI

Floats over potholes and rough roads for a comfy commute

The biggest slick I could find with a reputation for puncture protection. This is on my commuter rig (a rigid 29) and is much faster than knobbies on the asphalt and is able to go over the roughest roads here with ease. I've even taken these off-roading, on a local singletrack loop, and these handled better than worn out knobbies do. Slipped on some wet leaves, but they handle dry dirt very well. I'd consider getting these same tires on a single speed roadie, if I can find a frame that can accommodate them.

I ride a Trek Marlin.

I found this set of tires to be everything this bike needed. I'm not much of an off road rider, but I know these tires can handle an occasional trail with ease. I love the smooth ride, and rather surprised how tough they are when riding on less than perfect surfaces.

Best Urban Cruiser Tire

This tire is the best urban or beach cruiser tire there is, period.

Super fast, super comfortable, reflective sidewall, and great puncture protection. Dont hestistate on this tire, and if you can find it on sale, even better!

These tires are everything that I had heard they were- Great performance all around!

Excellent traction- supple, cushioning ride- bright reflective stripes that let others see me better at night. I had heard for years how good the Big Apple was, so after having very positive experiences with Schwalbe in the past I put them on the top of my list. No regrets, these are extremely hard to beat and they deliver on the promises.

Big and Beautiful

This is my second pair of Big Apples. I don't think I can add anything to the already glowing reviews. They roll beautifully and I don't get flats with them. Perfect tire for my Surly Ogre.

Best tire ever!

I like the Big Apple so much I bought another set for my second Breezer Thunder mountain bike. Most of my riding is pavement, but these babies are great if I have to bail. Rolling resistance is not bad at all. Reflective stripe very visible. Go fat is what I say!

Smooth

I put these on my stock rim for my 2018 IBIS Riply. My mountain bike tires are on a set of carbon wheels. I change wheels when I'm riding pavement. Kind of like having a super nice hybrid.

These tires are very smooth riding and roll efficiently. I'm pleasantly surprised.

However, they were a lot of work to mount. I needed three hands. Hope I don't ever have a flat.

Love these tires!!!

These tires are of a generally round shape, with a pleaseant choclatey scent, and should not be used as hoola hoops, nose rings, car tires, a flotation device in case of plane crash, or as a clever disguise to rob various banks in your community.

I've got them on my e-bike, which is used to commute to work and back, and they are super cool. Very smooth ride, awesome grip, and chicks totes dig a nice set of tires on an e-bike right!?!?

Would buy again. Yep.

Great Urban Assault Tire!

Best tire on the market for road and some light trail riding. I immediately put them on my DB 29er and they are all everyone says they are. I'm 6'3' 260 and they take all the punishment I can give them. New Jersey roads (Or lack there of...) aren't the best and a lesser tire couldn't handle the punishment. I run them with a tube at 55psi and I'm getting good performance numbers out of them. I do about 80 miles a week and I plan on running them through the winter if possible. The reflective side walls are an added bonus as well. NJ isn't the most bike friendly state - Be seen or be taken out! Will definitely purchase these again.

Outstanding E-Bike tire !!

I bought these for my new Felt Nine-E 20 E-Bike and have had ZERO issues. I commute about 30 miles a day

and and have zero flats at 3000 miles and counting. After 6 months I expect, I will need a new set around the

4-5000 mile marker. 95% of my riding is on pavement, these tires are quick and agile. Since I bought these tires,

I have changed brake pads 3 times and have replaced the front chain ring, rear cassette, and chain. I don't think there is a better 29er city tire on the market today. Please note they are largewide, just make sure they will fit your bike. I have had trouble with some older bike racks on public transit where the tires don't quite fit, I carry

a tie down strap to ensure it will stay in the rack.

Looking for potholes to hit dead center

Potholes are a part of riding in Omaha. I ride on the residential streets to avoid high traffic and in so doing, ride some of the worst streets in Omaha. These tires are so huge on my mt bike that i barely feel the potholes and road hazards are not as hazardous. On my way to work today, I heard something shoot out from under my back wheel. I was certain i would flat out and kept checking on the way to work but never did flat out. they were expensive but compared to the cost of new rims, i think this was a good purchase.

Speed, traction, comfort!

Bike Marin, Alpine Trail 29er.

I'm about 6'3', 200

Running 50 psi

Averaging 75-90 miles a week

Urban ridingcommuting, mostly paved surfaces with moments of grass or hard, dry dirt, regularly getting up to 40-45 mph.

Going from knobby tires, I have gained about 5 mph on my top speed and about 3 mph on my average speed.

Overall ride is super smooth, cracks and small sticks can't even be felt.

Very pleased!

if you ride on the streets often -get em !!!

I put these on my 29er and it was a huge difference, I often ride around on streets and some trash alleys that are unpaved ,

I found they are faster and easer, as well as smoother and quieter than the more mountain bike tires that came with my bike. I bet if your on the fence like i was for a bit you will wish you got them sooner, because thats what happened to me !

Why didn't I get these a long time ago!!!!

These tire are great. The look good, ride couldn't be any better. I've been using my 29rd around town on it's old MTB tires. From asphalt, up on curbs, down sidewalks...oh I didn't know what I was missing. These tires are perfect for the asphalt jungle and occasional off-road. Put that PSI up there and you're sailing with ease!!!

Great tires for a fair price

I slapped a pair of these on my Fanton 29 mountain bike as I do most of my riding on pavement. They are super smooth and roll easy. I have tried them on trials, too, and they perform quite well.

I am very happy with them. Much quieter, too, for stealth riding.

Reflective stripe a plus.

These Big Apple tires roll on over the competition!

Use these tires both on and off the trails on my 29er. They roll easy on pavement but still work well on fairly rough trails. I love the reflective stripe built in to the tires, too.
