Schwalbe launch new E-Plus Electric Bike tyre range

THE NEW MARATHON E-PLUS: FLAT-LESS AND MORE

Schwalbe’s first Marathon specifically designed for electric bikes combines proven flat-less technology with new features for e-mobility: With easy run and greatest riding safety, exceptional stability and durability, E-Plus Marathon riders get the maximum performance possible out of modern e-bikes.

More than flat-less – is that even necessary? Yes, after all, an e-bike also has much more to offer than a normal bike. It has more power and is generally faster, both on straights and in corners. Due to the motor and battery, it is also much heavier. Of course, a flat on an ebike is just as annoying as it is on a normal bike. “In order to take advantage of the full potential of modern e-bikes, it needs a tire that offers more of everything: safety, grip, durability, easy rolling, and a long life”, explains René Marks, Product Manager Tour and Electric Bike. Schwalbe’s engineers have tweaked all the relevant features towards e-bike requirements and added new properties to their flat-less technology.

Smart-DualGuard: The patented SmartGuard belt is supported by two layers of RaceGuard fabric. This well thought-out combination provides even better protection against sharp objects and offers maximum safety with puncture protection level 7, also at high speed and on long tours. Now, e-bikes are also flat-less.

Easy rolling for a greater range: The surprisingly low rolling resistance of the Marathon E-Plus prevents excessive drain of the battery.

Maximum riding safety due to Addix-E Compound: The special rubber mix for e-bike tires offers exceptional grip at all speeds, and at the same time, extremely low wear. It also guarantees low rolling resistance while achieving high mileage and a long service life.

Wide range of use: The robust, dynamic tread safely rolls along pavement and also brings the required level of grip on park and gravel roads.

High stability due to the new carcass construction: In this design, side-walls are reinforced with an additional fabric layer which stabilizes the tire to carry even greater loads. Its proven anti-aging side-wall resists typical over-load scenarios due to low air pressure for a significantly longer period of time and avoids unwanted cracks.

Thanks to this coherent overall package, Marathon E-Plus has qualified for an ECE-R75 certificate for high carrying loads, which is valid all over Europe. With this, even heavy riders and bike tourists with lots of baggage are on the safe side. The tire is allowed to be used on all e-bikes, both for 25 km/h as well as 50 km/h.

LARGE RANGE OF TIRES FOR BOOMING E-BIKE MARKET

Schwalbe introduced its new Marathon to the market in six sizes, including several wide versions: “In terms of comfort, safety and rolling resistance, wider tires have great advantages on an e-bike,” says René Marks.

Dyson Bikes now have the 27.5 x 2.0 inch version in stock which suit our Hard Tail Evo and Mixte  e-bike ranges.

All in all, Schwalbe caters to the e-bike boom with an exceptionally wide range of specialized e-bike tires for all segments from urban and touring to road and mountain biking. This is because Schwalbe is convinced that this boom will continue. According to the bicycle industry association Zweirad-Industrie-Verband, 980,000 e-bikes were sold in Germany in 2018. This is an increase of 36 percent compared to the previous year. “At Schwalbe we have been electrified since our first edition of the Energizer in 2012. Our tires offer maximum safety at high speed and on long tours – and now, the flat-less fun can continue on e-bikes with the Marathon E-Plus.”

Future Transport - Electric Bike Challenges

We already know that many cities and regional centres are doing a lot to help improve the future of transport in Australia: higher density living surrounding train stations and providing more secure bike parking by stations to invite train users to ride to the station rather than drive.

But what are the problems riders encounter in wanting to ride their electric bike to/from the station and around their local suburb? Essentially they need to feel safe and comfortable riding around and, somewhere secure to store e-bikes whilst they travel on public transport.

The future of transport – are electric bikes the answer?

When we think of driving across cities today – it conjures up nightmare traffic jams, accident near misses and possibly, a lot of swearing! But what do you think when we talk about crossing Melbourne, Sydney or even Los Angeles in 10- or 20-years’ time? Will everyone be peacefully transported whilst they sit ‘zen like’ in the back of their private self-driven electric vehicles? Or will we be transporting ourselves, on our pedal assisted e-bikes – still peacefully – maintaining our physical and emotional fitness and living in a more engaged community environment?

Can electric bikes replace cars? We think so!

Tired of sitting in traffic jams and decreasing air quality? Well, riding an electric bike to run errands, get the kids to school, to work or the station - could just be the solution. In many cities worldwide, many transportation experts are saying that electric bikes (along with electric cars, light rail trains and more pedestrian friendly cities) could become a primary driver of cleaner air, fitter aging populations and reduced greenhouse emissions. Read on for more details.

Deepdive into the BESV TR-1 AM eMTB

Dyson Bikes are the distributors for BESV's electric mountain bike - the TR-1AM. Our blog this month takes a deepdive into what makes it stand out...is it the German made Borse motor with the best power-to-weight ratio and super quiet operation?
