great value and performance

great tires and easy install on my araya dual-wall rims. liked them so much i bought 2 pairs. really nice ride compared to track tires- i don't have to scan the pavement as much with these tires soaking up cracks and pavement joints/imperfections. made in vietnam (where 27" wheels are still quite popular) and seem to be very high quality with a smooth feel inside the casing- very much like my old michelins but containing twice the amount of air giving a superior ride and still showing good cornering grip. good job, BTD.

Great, long-lasting tires

It is very difficult finding quality 27x1-1/4 tires, and these Schwalbe HS159 have been amazing. I regularly ride two vintage bicycles; either running errands or long-distance - and these tires have never let me down. One set has lasted almost 3-years and approximately 1500-miles. Keeping in-mind, they see 100-110+ temperatures in the summer. The tread has held, and have been fairly puncture resistant. Great value, and worth every penny.

Great price------great performance-------easy mounting

Ist off I run a garage based bike shop and order lots of tires. So I get to do all the ordering and all the test rides.

I do love the tread pattern, you can do all kinds of commuting with these, also when you do a pinch test of the thickness of the tire it is very robust. Obviously these are not a race tire but a daily rider/training tire. The wheel companies made 27 in. wheels till about 1990, and there are alot of older 10-12 speed bikes still around. These are a great cost effective/ easy mounting/ great cornering tire. I have also found these work on hook bead and non hook bead rims, And I rebuild several older road bikes every year and have had very few problems with these.---------------Mark

Great tire so far.

We used this with tire liners. No more goat head flats! It's on my husband's bike, and he says he likes it a lot so far. Tight fit on the rim, but got it on with finger pads intact. Nicely affordable!

favorite 27

I've bought 3 pair now for vintage bikes. My favorite 27" tire for size (fairly narrow for 1 1/4), weight and looks (really like the white). All for a great price. This tire is noticeably lighter than the Marathon in the same size, which I also own.

Schwalbe tires solid - like the refelctive side wall

Bought these to go on a recumbent for some distance touring. Have put about 1000 miles on them, mainly on paved roads with no issues. They have quite a bit of tread compared to the Gatorskins I've used on my normal road bikes. Looks like they will last a long time. Since I ride at night during the summer to stay out of the heat, (on country roads) I particularly like the reflective side wall. That was the main reason I switched. Very happy with them.

Incredibly durable, quality tire

I put these Schwalbe tires on several bikes in our household that are used as utility bicycles, driven to the market, over trails, on rough country roads, and under generally adverse circumstances. I'm amazed at how durable and puncture resistant they are. I would have expected a harsh ride from puncture resistant tires due to harder compounds, but the Schwalbes ride as good as any of the more sophisticated tires I've used on other bikes. They're also very good in loose gravel and sand situations and conditions, exhibiting minimal slippage and quite amazing tracking. I'm sold on these, and will continue to use these as my go-to tires for any general purpose bikes I build in the future.

easy rolling - great traction

Selecting tyres in sizes from the way past can be very challenging. Although there are other great tyres in other sizes most of the look like modern tyres. I chose the Schwalbe HS159 for performance in a retro look. not dissapointed. These tyres ride great and rolling resistance is surprising low considering how much tread is on these tyres. I strongly recommend them if you want great performance with an older look.

I bought these for restoring an old steel bike for riding around town, and they work great. Love the white sidewalls.

Just using these for riding around town, but they could work decent on hardpack gravel as well. They look sweet on my old drop bar steel road bike with the white sidewalls.

Great commuter tires

Got these installed on my 80s Norco single-speed road bike. Been commuting in Toronto with them for the second summer now and they have given me zero problems. Toronto (and especially the suburban areas just outside of downtown) has some pretty patchy roads and these have been solid.
