Schwalbe Marathon 16 inch
The original Schwalbe Marathon 16 inch tire. These tires are 47-305 and are rated for 3.5-5.0 bar or 50 to 70 psi. The Schwalbe Marathon 16 inch tire is an upgrade for your Strida from the Strida 16 inch tires. The Schwalbe Marathon tires will mount on the Strida EVO and Strida 5.0 spoke 16 inch wheels. These tires will not mount on the Strida Lt 16 inch plastic wheels. The Marathon tire is wider, has a deeper tread and is larger in diameter by 10 mm.
From the Schwalbe website, The archetypal high quality touring tire. The highly elastic GreenGuard layer is 3 mm thick. One third of the GreenGuard is made up of recycled latex products. The “Anti-Aging” sidewall can withstand the typical cracking that results from overloading due to insufficient inflation pressure for much longer.
The Schwalbe Marathon tires are 47-305. Marathon tires are larger in diameter than the standard Strida 40-305 tires. The diameter of the inflated Strida 16 inch tire is 390 mm, the Marathon is 402 mm. The Schwalbe Big Apple 16 inch tire has a diameter 405 mm. Not shown in the above photos is the Strida 18 tire which has a diameter of 425 mm. Because the gear ratio is the same then the Schwalbe Marathon tires are faster than the Strida 16 inch tires.
