This tyre features a low rolling resistance on the flats to make pushing easier.
It is formed from Schwalbe Basic Compound (SDC), which is a versatile compound ideal for various applications.
In wet conditions, the Schwalbe Land Cruiser wheelchair tyre provides excellent grip due to the raised diamond tread. It has a twin skin, a working pressure from 35-70 psi, and it uses an inner tube number 10. This tyre can sustain a maximum load of 90 kg and weighs just 770 g. It is a wired tyre for added strength and durability.
Additionally, this tyre features patented K-Guard® protection. A layer of natural rubber which is reinforced with tough Kevlar® fibres makes punctures a thing of the past. These tyres offer a level 3 puncture protection. Add to that the 50 EPI carcass, and you will enjoy the freedom of being able to tackle difficult terrains without fear of a flat tyre.
The Schwalbe Land Cruiser wheelchair tyre is available in 24-inches x 2 inches.
As this tyre is wider than a normal wheelchair tyre it will probably catch against the sideguard of your wheelchair if you mount it on your regular wheelchair wheels. You need to mount these tyres on off-road wheelchair wheels.
These wheels have an off-centre hub which allows enough space for these wider tyres to pass freely by the sideguard. Additionally, off-road wheels are sturdier and have stronger spokes to cope with the difficult terrains that you may want to experience. These wheels are a straight swap for both 24 and 25-inch regular wheels and fit onto a standard 1/2-inch axle. They have 35 stainless steel spokes and the handrims are of anodised aluminium in a distinctive, modern black.
If you want to enjoy getting off the beaten track and exploring new and exciting places, you should purchase the Schwalbe Land Cruiser wheelchair tyres along with our off-road wheels.
