Product Description Overview
The first specialized tire for recumbent trikes, the Schwalbe Tryker is constructed and shaped with the special requirements of multi-track vehicles. Trikes exert completely different loads on tires than bicycles. Nevertheless, the tires must be light and fast, because you're still doing the powering and you want your trike to be as efficient as possible. The Tryker takes on the challenge of minimal rolling resistance and high durability for the recumbent triker. ECE-R75 certification for faster E-Bikes- this is one tough tire.


What's Up With Tire Sizes?
One piece of cycling knowledge that is supremely frustrating is tire sizing. The late Sheldon Brown, was, undoubtedly, the foremost authority on bike tire sizing of his time, and even he had to admit that "bicycle tires come in a bewildering variety of sizes."

For tire sizes, we primarily use the The European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation (ETRTO) method of measurement. The ETRTO format has been adopted by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and is recognized in the industry as a reliable and uniform method for tire sizing.

An ETRTO size is comprised of two millimeter measurements, separated by a hyphen: "Tire Width - Rim Diameter." A tire reading "50-406" is 50mm wide and 406mm in diameter. For convenience, we've included traditional units beside the ETRTO listings on our website.

Here's a good explanation of the difference between ETRTO, Inch and French readings.
Here's a link to Sheldon Brown's own website about the trials and tribulations of tire sizing.

More Details

You can feel the difference the trike specific design makes. While other Schwalbe tires are great on trikes, the Tryker has a unique combination of low rolling resistance, cornering, and road feel.

Designed for recumbent trikes, it is available the 406 size only. A good matching rear tire, should you have a larger rear tire, would be the Big Apple, Marathon, or Marathon Supreme.

Technical Info

Designed for trikes, with a low rolling resistance, flat tread design that handles high speed cornering without squirming. Ordinary bicycle tires are not designed for the sorts of cornering loads that trikes love to generate. The Tryker handles side loads, powerful braking, and roadside debris with ease.

Available in 406 only.

Owner's Manual
