Ride Smooth on the Big Apple

Schwalbe has completely revised the extra-wide Big Apple for improved ride quality and completely worry-free performance.

This 29 inch/700c version features an updated, water channeling tread, a more pronounced profile, and a RaceGuard puncture protection belt to ward off flats. Its 2.35 inch width gives built-in suspension for serious comfort on rough roads and city streets. Great for larger riders or cargo bikes (320 lb max. rider weight).

The updated Big Apple also features the Marathon Endurance tread compound for excellent wear resistance. Schwalbe states that this tire is "E-Bike Ready," meaning the whole Marathon range and the new Big Apple are suitable for use on most E-Bikes. However, these tires (except some Marathon sizes) do not carry the ECE designation required for some faster e-bikes.

The Big Apple HS 430 is available in Black with a reflective sidewall stripe. 30-55 recommended PSI. 29 x 2.35 Inch (700c x 60mm; 60-622 ISO). 898 grams. Max load. 320lbs.

Ultimate Steamroller Tire

For what this tire is -- an invincible beast of a smooth tire -- this is as good as it gets.

While it definitely doesn't have enough clearance for all but dedicated 29er frames, the Big Apple 29 might be the most comfy and reliable tire made. It's giant. That really can't be overstated. You really don't realize how big 2.35 is until you see a 2.35 tire with no knobbies -- that's all air volume. The result is a tire that doesn't roll super-fast (in fact it rolls like three 23mm road tires side-by-side). Once up to speed, though, this thing just keeps rolling, and the sheer volume makes for enough traction for even some light duty off road use -- even singletrack. Gravel roads are no problem.

If steady and indestructible is your preferred commute method and you can't help but goofing around on some curbs, or even park benches, along the way, this is your tire.

I love these tires. They change the look and feel of my 29er considerably and for the better. I ride urban streets for the most part, and they deliver a great smooth ride. They roll over everything, so much so, that I now call my bike Honey Badger, because, well, Honey Badger just don't give a %$! I took them off road for a tame ride, and they performed decently there, too. They have also proven quite puncture resistant, although you do still have to watch out for goatheads and metal. My ride is now an urban beast!

i threw these on my big new 29er bmx bike. i am a big dude (200 lbs) that does big jumps/drops in the streets, and these big apples are super cushy. i run without brakes and the back tire is holding up well to my shoe skids on 95 degree days. great traction in the street, not the best on dirt (as to be expected). great for cruising and abusing!

Outstanding Road Tire
rating
by Roadrider2021
Atlanta, GA

I purchased a set of 29� for my Giant Talon 4 and i love them !! I ride primarily on the road and sidewalks approximately 15 miles a day and these tires have handled everything that i�ve thrown at them. I was concerned at at first about the size and how they would fit on the bike from a stability standpoint but they are really beefy and very fast rolling on the pavement. My transitions from the road to the sidewalk are much easier now and it feels much smoother going from the curb to the pavement as well. I am definitely well pleased with the performance so far.

I use these tires on my beach cruiser. I ride 40 to 80 miles per week along the beach trail. These tires ride so much better than the tires I replaced. The ride is smoother and not as jarring as the old tires.

Bit Sketchy On The Beach Bike Paths
rating
by Mr Pix

I have a Haibike Hardtail MTB. I do a lot of miles on the road. Therefore I replaced my knobby tires with the Big Apples. Often I commute on a beach bike bath. I have had a number of near slips and a few falls with these tires, all at slow speeds when I come in contact with the smallest amount of sand. Maybe it's not fair to judge, because that I have not tried other brands for the street. Other than that, they seem OK. I've put on maybe thousand miles with no flats or any other issues. When these tires need to be replaced, I'm thinking of trying a set of the Continental Contact Cruisers. When that happens, I'll be able to offer a compare and contrasting review.

I ride mostly on paved roads and sidewalks in Florida. My son and son in law surprised me on Christmas morning with my old stock tires wrapped up and new Big Apples on my ebike. Original tires were getting thin after 150 miles. The new tires ride great, look great and seem to roll much better increasing my range, but, I generally ride on good pavement at 5 and 10 mile trips. Just clicked over 75 miles and still look brand new. Thanks Santa

Good 29er city tire
rating

A good 29er city tire, but a light racing tire it is not. It weighs more than some of my XC racing mtb tires. Good speed, but not great. That said, it rolls very smooth and very quiet on pavement and, unlike some other 29er pavement style tires I've tried, no self steer. It tracks true. Love the 2.35" width for comfort. Also mounted up very easily on my Fargo 29er.

I have had these tires on my Schwinn Revel 29 in. bike. I put the 29x2.35 tires on it they are great to ride the city with. I ride mine in the pot hole infested streets of New Orleans with no trouble only had 1 flat in 3 years . I ride 50 miles a week. They are fast once you get them moving, seems the weight works with you instead of against you. Have rode in rain without a problem. They worked so good I put a set of 26x2.15 on my tandem bike made a huge difference with the ride of that bike also. Seems like they will coast forever.

I found this set of tires to be everything this bike needed. I'm not much of an off road rider, but I know these tires can handle an occasional trail with ease. I love the smooth ride, and rather surprised how tough they are when riding on less than perfect surfaces.

Excellent traction- supple, cushioning ride- bright reflective stripes that let others see me better at night. I had heard for years how good the Big Apple was, so after having very positive experiences with Schwalbe in the past I put them on the top of my list. No regrets, these are extremely hard to beat and they deliver on the promises.

I like the Big Apple so much I bought another set for my second Breezer Thunder mountain bike. Most of my riding is pavement, but these babies are great if I have to bail. Rolling resistance is not bad at all. Reflective stripe very visible. Go fat is what I say!
