Schwalbe was started in 1973 in Germany due to the need of a long lasting, durable tire.
They created their first tire “the marathon” which they still produce. Today Schwalbe has grown into North America as one of the leading tire manufacturers. Schwalbe has a complete line of tires for every need from cross country racing to trail and road riding. They are constructed to be both lightweight and strong, using different compounds to achieve these goals. When the rubber is done Schwalbe has a recycling program to turn these used tires into useful items such as floor mats.
