Schwalbe: two new 406 tires

Bryan let everyone know that Schwalbe may have two new 406 tires soon:

"Schwalbe introduced two new 406 tires at Spezialradmesse in Germany this past weekend. I was expecting a recumbent friendly version of the Kojak but a 406 Marathon Winter was a surprise. The Kojak is a fairly fat fast rolling slick and the Marathon Winter is a spiked tire for icy roads. I can see lots of great applications for both of these tires. Where would we be without Schwalbe?

Since Schwalbe dropped at least one 406 (the Slick), I think without Schwalbe we'd be... buying other tires.

VERY true... You definitely can buy multiple tires with the price of one Schwalbe!

So the Kojak is now available:

Folding Tire
Size: 35-406 (20x1.35)
RaceGuard
Black-Skin
PSI: 55-95
Weight: 215 g
Price: $48.85

Impressive, but pricey.
