You will find SCHWALBE bike tyres in the USA, in South Africa as well as in Japan and Australia. In Europe, we are even the market leader! There are two reasons for this success. Firstly, we are "tyre fanatics" and 100% committed to bikes as well as, for several years now, to wheelchairs. Secondly, our tyres are not available everywhere, but exclusively from specialist shops! Because we insist on qualified advice and good service. And we know: Only the specialist trade can provide both. Schwalbe is the brand. Bohle is the company.
