The features are as follows:
- ETRTO size: 35-349
- Tyre pressure: 65 -110 psi or 4.5 -7.5 bar
- Bead: Folding
- Casing: Classic Skin
- Compound: Addix SpeedGrip
- Average weight: 260g (9.2 oz)
- Suitable for all Brompton bikes, including the Brompton Electric.
Now these are lighter than the standard Marathon (that I actually have on all my Brompton bikes and rate very high) and do have 'Raceguard' that offers good puncture protection.
A nice tyre, that is very useful as a spare as they can be folded, but they are only available in a few locations and cost £40 a piece. I think that this is rather steep when you consider the ordinary Marathon Racer (which doesn't fold of course) can be bought for £22 or less.
The only other tyre out there that looks like these are the tanwall Kojak ones - that cost even more. For me, I will be sticking with the ordinary Marathons!
