Product Description

AIR SUSPENSION BUILD-IN

The Big Apple started off the Balloonbike trend ten years ago: Comfortable cycling without using complicated technology! Air cushion tires are used as natural suspension. Inflated to around 2 Bar a Balloonbike rolls really easily and with a full suspension effect. A normal tire with a width of 37 mm must be inflated to a rock-hard 4 bar, in order to roll similarly well.

Level 4 RaceGuard

Double layer of Nylon fabric.
Good protection for light, sporty tires.

E-Bike Ready 25

In standard pedelecs that have motor assist up to 25 km/h, there is no legal requirement for a special tire. But even with these bikes, loads and average speeds are higher than in regular bikes, therefore we recommend only certain tires as "E-Bike Ready 25".

Performance Line

Excellent quality for intensive use.
These are the best value for money tires.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Folding Bike Tyre Guide

 

Folding Bike Tyre Guide

Folding bike tyres are tyres that are designed specifically to fit the wheels of folding bikes. Most folding bikes have smaller wheels than urban road and hybrid bikes, so we’ve placed them all in a category of their own. If you can’t find the exact same tyre as you have on your bike, then another tyre of the same size will be fine.

Please note: the term ‘folding tyre’ refers to the bead of the tyre rather than the type of bike that the tyre is to be fitted to. Both ‘wired’ and ‘folding’ bead tyres are suitable for folding bikes as long as they are the right size.


What size tyre do I need for my folding bike?

You will need a tyre that is the same size as the wheel on your folding bike. If you aren’t sure what size you need have a look at the side walls of your existing tyre, the size will be written there.

Brompton folding bikes all have 16” wheels with a 349 ETRTO number. Tern folding bikes have 20” wheels or larger.

See the table opposite for typical folding bike tyre sizes

ETRTO Number

Tyre Dimension

32 - 349

16 x 1 ¼

35 - 349

16 x 1.35

32 - 355

18 x 1.25

40 - 406

20 x 1.5


Can I fit a different size tyre to my folding bike?

You can fit a tyre with a different width as long as the diameter of the tyre is the same. A slightly narrower tyre of the same diameter will fit perfectly. You will need to make sure that you have enough clearance in the frame if the tyre is wider than your existing tyre.

For example: if you have a 16 x 1 1/4 (32–349) tyre fitted then a 16 x 1.35 (35–349) will fit as long as you have a little bit of extra clearance between the tyre and the frame as this tyre is about 3mm wider.
