A classic all-arounder, the Schwalbe Johnny Watts 27.5" MTB and E-Bike Tire brings a lot to the table. With his versatile tread, Johnny's rubber unites fast-rolling qualities with durability and puncture protection. The knobs give the tire large contact areas which are excellent for rolling, while also reducing vibration and increasing traction on corners.

Johnny is also E-Bike ready, making it the perfect choice for touring e-bikes. The 67 threads per inch tire casings are extra durable, so the e-bike motor does not create excessive wear from the torque. Johnny Watts carries an official E-50 rating.

Johnny Watts comes outfitted with one of the best puncture protection guards on the market: RaceGuard with DoubleDefense Sidewall Protection.

  • Versatile tread for a wide range of use from tarmac to hardpacked off-road dirt
