Schwalbe limited edition London tyres

To celebrate London’s ever increasing love for cycling and the fast-approaching 2012 Olympic Games Schwalbe will be releasing a ‘London’ range of tyres. Some of their most popular commuting tyres will be included in the range such as the Marathon Plus, the Durano Plus and the Marathon Plus MTB.

In addition to the usual Schwalbe branding the ‘London’ range will include reflective ‘London’ labels on the sidewalls alongside 2 reverse silhouette images of London landmarks.

Although not part of the London range, Schwalbe will also be revealing the newest tyre in their portfolio named ‘Big Ben’ which isn’t due for release until 2013.
