A Spicy Tire For A Smooth Ride
Looking for an affordable city tire for your urban/fitness bike? The Schwalbe Spicer Plus 26 Inch tire checks all the boxes. With its smooth tread and sidewall siping, the Spicer rolls fast and grips around corners — even in wet conditions.
If you have an older mountain bike with knobby tires and feel like you are pedaling too hard to keep up on paved bike trails — give the Spicers a go. You'll find it's a lot easier to keep a good pace when you don't have heavy tire knobs adding resistance to every pedal stroke.
The Spicer also has Schwalbe's proprietary K-Guard puncture protection, which adds an extremely resistant barrier on the inside of the tire casing. Puncture protection is extremely important for urban riding because the probability of getting a shard of glass or nail in your tire is much higher.
The 1.6-inch width on this tire also adds to its comfort. At the appropriate tire pressure, the Spicers absorb bumps and rough terrain in urban settings.
Go fast and stay safe with the Schwalbe Spicer Plus.
