Schwalbe Big Betty TrailStar Tubeless Tire - 26in $0.00
Big Betty for big trails.
If you live for rough terrain, but pedal to earn turns, Schwalbe's Big Betty TrailStar Tubeless 26in Tire is for you. With an aggressive design and a reinforced tubeless casing, the Big Betty provides the security needed to charge craggy trails, without calling on a lift to get back up.
Three types of alternating, broad blocks are placed for an excellent blend of braking, steering, and climbing traction. Between each row of these paddle-shaped knobs are alternating square blocks that provide an enhanced grip in loose terrain. Long, lengthwise knobs interspersed at the center of Big Betty resist deforming under acceleration, as to provide energy conservation and enhanced speed.
The combination of profiles provides a blend of low rolling-resistance, powerful braking control, and strong grip in loose dirt. The tread pattern deserves much of the credit for the control provided by the Big Betty, but it wouldn't be possible without Schwalbe's TrailStar compound.
Essentially, TrailStar means that the knobs in the center of the tire are harder than those found on the side knobs. And, not only does the harder center compound allow the Big Betty to roll surprisingly fast, but it also improves the durability as well. And since cornering traction is of the utmost importance, the side knobs are built from a softer rubber, which maximizes grip when you're at the edge of control.
Schwalbe's tubeless casing is employed for the construction of the Big Betty. The enlarged bead hook helps keep the tire on the rim under hard cornering, which is especially important to those who prefer lower tire pressures. And speaking of low pressure, the reinforced casing provides added flat resistance, as well as extra support.
The Schwalbe Big Betty TrailStar Tubeless 26in Tire is available in a 26x2.4in size and in the color Black. Please note that this tire does not include either sealant or tape.
