    Great ebike tire

    I use this tire on a 1500W Bafang BBSHD 30+mph Ebike. I upgraded to this from the Scwalbe Big Apple Plus. They were usually out of stock here, so I ordered mine from Europe. The thicker tread keeps smaller pieces of glass away from the tire casing. No flats on these yet. I had a few on the similar BA+. The tread is very grippy at high speed on the traffic circles. Traction in dirt is much better also. Rated for 50kph speeds. Much better than Maxxis Hookworms

    I would suggest washing the tires with dish soap before riding on them. The mold release compound is pretty slick until worn away. Nothing specific to these tires, just a good idea to do this.

    Great tires

    Turns heads with the reflective strip at night. Great tires good traction balloon shape helps with shock absorption. Little expensive but worth it.
