The MTB is equipped with Schwalbe Racing Ralph, Marathon Winter & Ice Spiker Pro tires; the trailer is rolling on Mad Mike tires
The roads high up north are covered with ice and snow. Grip is everything. I’m happy to ride this expedition on professional bike tires by Schwalbe!
I’m using Schwalbe Racing Ralph bike tires for training at home in the Netherlands. For the expedition I’m using Schwalbe Marathon Winter tires. In northern Finland, where the conditions Can be very bad with deep snow, I can use the Schwalbe Ice Spiker Pro tires. The trailer will be on 16″ Mad Mike tires the entire trip.
THE PERFECT RACER
Profile, compound, carcass. In the third generation of the Racing Ralph everything is designed for speed. Performance advantages of the large wheels are optimally improved.
FOR A SAFER JOURNEY
You have full control on icy roads with the Marathon Winter. Even in tight bends and under violent braking everything remains under control. The spikes work best on ice when running at minimum pressure, while at maximum pressure the tires can be ridden on ice-free roads with minimal road noise.
ICE SPIKER PRO
LIGHTER, GRIPPIER, FASTER
The ‘turbo’ of spike tires. With 361 spikes it bites firmly into icy roads. The tungsten carbide core of each spike is clad in weight-saving aluminum. The scales stop at 695 g, yet the tire remains agile and sporty. Clinchers. Steel spikes.
Proven BMX profiles
Used for the trailer.
