Schwalbe is a German tire company known for its durable puncture-resistant tires. This model is a robust, rugged tire, perfect for bad weather or commuting. 27"x 1 1/4". 85PSI Max, SBC tread compound, black with off-white sidewall, wire bead, 550g. 32-630.

For 27 inch tires, you can use the 700x25/32 tubes recommended when adding the tires to the cart. Make sure to choose either Schrader or Presta valve tubes depending on which valve your rim is drilled for.

These tires fit a little loosely on some rims and require a hooked-rim to seat properly. This tire is not recommended for rims that have smooth inner sides.

Reliable Bike Tire

I am very satisfied with this tire. Provides much better traction & grip on any surface, paved or gravel road.

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.

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.

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.

Rolls like a 40$ tire!

I have a collection of 1980 era 27 wheel bike, Univega and Miyatas. This is the BEST deal on a tire that is round and sets into the rim well. I really like them and will buy again!

Tire appears to be of good quality and was easily installed.

This was the first tire I've installed in 20 years. I revived my old bicycle from 1972. It was the also the first tire I've seen folded into a box. No problems.

Mount Without Tools ... But

The price was right and I wanted a tire that could be removed and mounted without tools. The rear wheel worked out super so I bought a second for the front. Unfortunately with the front the bead wanted to come off the rim when inflated. I was finally able to keep it seated by partially inflating and pushing it down until it popped over the hook. I think it's okay but worrying. Maybe they are a bit too loose on the rim? Nicely made tire otherwise.

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.

Great tire on modern rims

If you're running old steel rims or old hookless alloys, you're gonna pop the tire - any tire - off the rim at too high a pressure. Having said that, I run these guys at 95-100psi and they're rock solid on my Weinmann RM19 rims. Never flatted in 1000 miles of moderate abuse. So far so good!

Easy To Mount And Priced Right

Got an aging Nashiki (cheap, as in free) to use for shopping without worry about it being stolen. It came with new Kenda 1x1 14 wire bead tires that were EXTREMELY hard to remove and mount and that was in the warm, dry garage. Out on the road fixing a flat would have been a real struggle. I bought one to try because of the claim that they were looser on most rims. Not too loose but just loose enough it could be mounted without tools. Just what I was hoping for. Can't speak to durability and I probably won't put a lot of miles on this bike anyway. Not crazy about the gum-wall side walls but I have no worry about fixing a flat away from home which was the main idea. Going to order a second for the front. Price is right as well! Made in Vietnam!

Nice tires for upgrading older bikes with 27inch wheels

I have these (two pair) tires on two separate older Schwinn bikes. I have probably 2000 miles total with no flats. As some of the other reviewers noted, you do need hook beaded rims to run up to the maximum pressure recommended. I have not had any issues with the tires coming off the rims.
