Do you know Aaron Fotheringham? The young man from Las Vegas made the first ever Back-flip - in a wheelchair. Schwalbe so admired his achievement that they have developed this special tyre for him.
At 30mm the Airborne is wider and more comfortable than a regular wheelchair tyre. The additional comfort is not only useful in making a Back-flip landing. Low weight and low rolling resistance provide momentum - for the jump, or for travelling generally.
Yet despite its sporty background the Airborne is equally at home in everyday life. For the first time Schwalbe used the HD Ceramic Guard in a wheelchair tyre and the unique, high-density protection belt offers excellent puncture protection. Now you are ready to take off!
- Comfort before speed.
I originally used these tyres on a chair with the Batec attachment as they are very comfortable at speed. I now use them on both chairs. They wear well, haven't punctured (I'm on my third set) and despite being smooth cope easily with inclines and other surfaces. (Posted on 19/10/2018)

I have to be honest they are the best tyres I've had
I tried them because I do a lot of pushing along my local canal and various other routes
I really don't know how many miles I've pushed since putting them on, but the other week I did 74K in a week
They are not the prettiest of tyres but for me they have been brilliant I've just ordered another set off Steve at Spokz if they last as long as the set they will be replacing I'll be more than pleased
They have been over some pretty rough ground in the past two and half years
Cheers Steve for recommending them
