Do you know what or who Duro Razorback or Schwalbe Crazy Bob are? While they might sound like high school nicknames, these are actually the two types of tyre available across the range of Stealth Electric Bikes.
Tyres are a performance game-changer – letting you push the limits on the trail, or maintain grip on a rainy commute. Tyre selection comes down to a few key questions – what terrain am I tackling and what are the weather conditions?
So, are Razorback or Crazy Bob best for you?
Duro Razorback – the ultimate in traction control
We've all been there – a sunny day out in the forest turns pear-shaped with a sudden burst of wind and rain, whipping up loose gravel and turning dirt trails into muddy rivers. This is the exact situation that Duro Razorback tyres love, providing that extra traction to make the terrain feel solid and dry.
Duro Razorback tyres are designed with aggressive side knobs and raised centre knobs that enable world-class cornering and reduced rolling resistance. When you want to attack the most difficult trails in the most extreme conditions, Duro Razorback tyres give you confidence and security every time.
Schwalbe Crazy Bob – Efficient around town
The concrete jungles that we call cities are supposed to be designed with usability in mind. However, concreted cycle paths are pretty slippery after rain and even dry painted lines can be tricky in good conditions. What you need for your commute are CE-R75 certified Schwalbe Crazy Bob tyres.
These tyres are designed with a unique rubber wrap that the semi-slick tread pattern covers. Enjoy a comprehensive grip on all hard surfaces and don't let a little rain upset your daily commute!
Schwalbe Crazy Bob tyres are also somewhat of a scientific breakthrough, proved to reduce rolling resistance (tyre friction with the ground). This not only extends the range of your electric bike, but also minimises noise – a win/win situation.
