The Schwalbe Fat Frank HS375 (ETRTO 50x622) bicycle tires have a wider surface area and are therefore highly adaptable to most terrains. They provide a larger supporting surface and more stability without offering excessive rolling resistance. It also has a reflective band to be extra visible in low light conditions (Reflex models only).
The basis of all Schwalbe Active Line tires is the high quality materials never below 50 threads per inch. Schwalbe does not produce tires with a body of 20 or 24 TPI.
Additionally, K-Guard offers effective puncture protection for Active Line tires. It consists of natural rubber and is reinforced with Kevlar® fibers. KEVLAR® is a registered trademark of DuPont.
The history of Schwalbe dates back to the early 20th century when the Bohle family set up their first company in England's nascent bicycle industry. As early as 1922 they opened a distribution centre for bicycle components in Germany, where they now have their headquarters in Reichshof-Wehnrath. In 1983 they created the Marathon tyre, the first long life and high puncture resistance tyre.
Schwalbe was the pioneer in giving a second life to tyres, launching its recycling initiative in 1993. In this way, they prevent the incineration of millions of tyres and inner tubes, turning the old wheels once again into raw materials such as steel or granulated rubber, which is used to pave athletic tracks or playgrounds.
